YOUR Top 10 Albums

post #1 of 243
Thread Starter 
Another highly subjective poll, but one that I always feel tells a little about a person. I'll impose two rather difficult rules: (1) no more than one entry by any artist (I could fill the whole list with the Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd) and (2) no greatest hits (sorry Bob Marley's Legend).

Okay, in no particular order:

1. Led Zeppelin - Houses of the Holy
2. Pink Floyd - Meddle
3. Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
4. The Cure - Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me
5. Pixies - Doolittle
6. Damien Rice - O
7. Nirvana - Nevermind
8. Guns 'N Roses - Appetite for Destruction
9. Pearl Jam - Ten
10. The Who - Quadrophenia

2. Requiem Mezzo Forte - Virgin Black
3. How to Measure a Planet? - The Gathering
4. Ashes Against the Grain - Agalloch
5. In Absentia - Porcupine Tree
6. Hope - Swallow the Sun
7. Awake - Dream Theater
8. Ten - Pearl Jam
9. Vol. 4 - Black Sabbath
10. No More Tears - Ozzy Osbourne


So, what can you tell about me?

Opeth - My Arms, Your Hearse
Draconian - Arcane Rain Fell

Metallica - Master of Puppets

And as everyone else has said, in no particular order and subject to change.

This seems to be a mix of newer stuff that I've played and played and can't get sick of, as well as some stuff that has really stood the test of time. I could do a "Top 20" or "Top 30" with the same rules pretty easily

Uh, I listen to such a wide variety of genres and tend to listen to innumerable records during the period of only one month that it is really impossible for me to pick 10 favourite albums. But, here it goes, my flavour of the month (May) favourite albums.

01. Julverne - Le pavillon des passions humaines
02. Taal - Skymind
03. Hector Berlioz - Te Deum (Deutsche Grammophon, conducted by Claudio Abbado)
04. Änglagard - Epilog
05. Le*Silo - 8.8
06. Sun Ra - The Heliocentric Worlds of Sun Ra Vol. 1
07. Deathspell Omega - Kenôse
08. Dmitry Shostakovich - Symphony No. 13 "Babi Yar" (EMI, conducted by Mariss Jansons)
09. Estradasphere - Palace of Mirrors
10. Aker****e - Words That Go Unspoken, Deeds That go Undone
post #7 of 243
Ted Leo & the Pharmacists - The Tyranny of Distance
My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
Dismemberment Plan - Emergency & I
Radiohead - OK Computer
Wu-Tang Clan - Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
Nick Drake - Pink Moon
Stevie Wonder - Songs in the Key of Life
A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory
The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds

post #8 of 243
This looks like fun. Let's see here...

In no particular order:

Peter Gabriel - UP
David Bowie - Outside
Massive Attack - Mezzanine
Porcupine Tree - In Absentia
Dream Theater - Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence
Radiohead - OK Computer
Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral
Tool - Ænima
The Cooper Temple Clause - Kick Up The Fire, And Let The Flames Break Loose
Amon Tobin - Permutation

I do want to add that Mirrored by Battles will soon climb to a very high point on my Top 10 in the coming months. The album is just plain SICK (by that I mean AWESOME)! I've also tried not to include any albums that have come out this year, which was hard considering some really good stuff has come out this year.

Wow, this is incredibly TOUGH!!
10 only? *gulp*
1 artist limit? *gulp* *gulp*

In chronological order:

The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway - Genesis - 1972
In A Glass House - Gentle Giant - 1973
Relayer - Yes - 1974
Permanent Waves - Rush - 1980
Hounds Of Love - Kate Bush - 1985
Lifes Rich Pageant - R.E.M. - 1986
Reading, Writing, Arithmetic - Sundays - 1989
Heaven Or Las Vegas - Cocteau Twins - 1990
Washing Machine - Sonic Youth - 1995
OK Computer - Radiohead - 1997

Without the 1 artist rule there'd be an additional album a piece for Rush and Genesis

But really, 10 is really much too hard. It doesn't tell enough about myself! No room for Soundgarden, Trans Am, Prince, The Smiths, Metallica, Godspeed You Black Emperor and more!

20 would have been more fair.
25????
