Your #1 Favorite Album - Page 9

post #121 of 205

Nine Inch Nails - The Fragile.

Massive Attack - Mezzanine. 


If I had to live on a desert island with nothing but those 2 CD's, a PSOne, a 4:3 TV, Headphones and a NTSC-J copy of Vib Ribbon, I'd be set.

The Clash: London Calling. 


I could live without oxygen, so long as I had this album to keep me going.

Depending on Mood:


Dark Side of the Moon  & The Wall

Ok Computer

Here are my "on an island" ablums in no particular order:


Kind of Blue - Miles Davis

Back in Black - AC/DC

Zoso (aka Zeppelin IV) - Led Zeppelin

Moving Pictures - Rush

The White Album - The Beatles

Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen

Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd

The Joshua Tree - U2

Desert island choices:

Rush - Presto (although it could be any of their albums)
Miles Davis - The Birth of the Cool
Dvorak - Symphony No. 9 "From the New World"
Yonder Mountain String Band - Yonder Play Their Bluegrass Favorites
Grateful Dead - Reckoning
Megadeth - Rust in Peace

One from every genre I listen to: Prog, jazz, classical, bluegrass, folk, metal. I could add a ton more, so I'm hoping my island would have wifi and a place to plug in my iPod. biggrin.gif

If I could only choose one...

Guns N' Roses - Appetite for Destruction
Guns N' Roses - Use Your Illusion I & II
Neil Young and Crazy Horse - Zuma

This is difficult to give a title to, but if I have to choose... it would be Trivium's album, "Shogun". It's influenced me immensely as a musician, and I heavily adore the usage of story-telling through music.

I have a tendency to agree with you. You may be correct.


However, I might have to pick something like this, even though it isn't a "real album." I dare say, without this, "Highway 61 Revisited" would never have been possible, and certainly nothing as latter day as Pink Floyd, a band named after bluesmen. There's virtually nothing in this thread that's not derivative. It's all building on the past. Pretty much every record mentioned is in debt to this stuff:



Of course, Robert Johnson got it from somewhere too, but our recorded documentation doesn't go back too much further. We start to get into sheet music instead of recordings...

Love that Robert Johnson set, have the box myself!

post #132 of 205

I've listened to pretty much every album already posted.

I want to share these because this thread has excellent taste and these albums significantly changed my life.

I like all those Pink Floyd, Led Zep, and many others. But since there can only be one,

+1 for Pavement. I just pulled all their CDs out the other day. Wow! I really miss them. frown.gif
post #135 of 205

Yeah, Pavement was really special. They'll definitely be missed, but that's what we have their albums for :)

Just checked out a song from Aja by Steely Dan, wuwhere.


Really good.. definitely getting the album.
