Favorite Albums? (CDs now)

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I haven't seen this thread yet, although I'm sure it's been done before. The Prince thread kind of stirred up my mind.

A few of my favorites are pretty old, classic rock, I guess. I classify it as a favorite if it's still one I get out and play every now and then.

I have a couple Cat Stevens that I'll never retire...Tea for the Tillerman and Teaser and the Firecat.

Elton John's Tumbleweed Connection. (and Yellow Brick Road)

Piano Man by Billie Joel.

Asylum Choir II, Leon Russell. (I have no clue why I like this.)

On occasion I pull out some Journey, John Prine, Beatles or Eagles. I like alot of newer artists too, but I'm not sure I'll be listening to those cds in 20 years.

Hmmm, I think Tori Amos - To Venus and Back
and Nirvana - Nevermind
Radiohead - OK Computer
the kinds of albums you can listen through and like every song.

Radiohead - Ok Computer is my top choice, without hesitation.

Other ones, it depends on my mood. Right now I like

Elton John - Madman Accross the Water

Radiohead - The Bends / Hail to the Thief

Daniel Belanger - Quatre saisons dans le desordre (which no one outside of Quebec would know)

I have also become a big Beatles fan, but I don't own any full album yet (only a best of and some random mp3s)

In the past I've also had as among my favorites:

Massive Attack - Mezzanine

Bjork - Homogenic

And some that I probably forgot.

I love anything for 60's to early 90's...but have to say 80's is my favorite decade.
As far a cds I like Simon and Garfunkel (Bridge over troubled water), Genesis, Phil Collins, ABBA, Josh Groban, and I'm sure there are more I can't think of...

Carole King's "Tapestry". Over the past 35 years, I have worn out several vinyl LPs, 8-track tapes and cassettes. I now have it on CD and it never leaves my stereo.

#1 without a doubt is

Nine Inch Nails - Pretty Hate Machine

Then, there's a bunch more:

Tori Amos - From the Choirgirl Hotel
Rosetta Stone - Adrenaline
Nine Inch Nails - actually, just about anything. Except The Fragile - I just couldn't get into that one.
Rozz Williams & Gitane Demone - Dream Home Heartache
Antrax - Only
Antrax - Attack of the Killer B's
Megadeth - Countdown to Extinction
Motley Crue - S/T

I know there's some country in there too, but I can't think of any right now.

Yes, I know most haven't heard of some of those bands. Yes, I know that my favorites are sometimes the ones that the critics and many fans hated. Oh well.

I keep reading these and saying...."Oh yeah, that was a good one!"

DH would say The Wall.

I really liked Madman Across the Water, Leftoverture and Bridge Over Troubled Water too.

My favorite Tori Amos song...Spark... is on Choirgirl Hotel, valanhb.

It's hard to pick a favorite Beatles cd. Rubber Soul, Abby Road and the White Album pop into my brain pretty quickly though.

Pink Floyd-The Wall,dark side of the moon.
The Beatles-Sgt Pepper
stevie ray vaughan- live alive
talking heads- stop making sense.
