the point of this thread is compile a list of CDs/Albums which everyone should own even if it is not their preferred genre.
The Cds/Albums can be in the form of a 'Best of album' or even an itunes exclusive download, it doesn't matter!
Hopefully this list will give people a starting point if they wish to expand their listening into other genres and they don't know where to start.
Time out - Brubeck quartet (CD/Vinyl)
Kind of Blues - Miles Davis (CD)
Dynamic Jazz Vol1-4 - Various Artists (itunes download: not very good quality but great selection for the price)
Bronx in blue - Dion
2112 - Rush
Whether or not you like Rush, this was an important album. Not just for Prog, but the philosophy behind it and the reason is exists at all is timeless.
Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson
Very influencial album period. It's got a sound which is just...unique no matter how you look at it.
Ziggy Stardust - David Bowie
Easily one of the best operas period.
Rage Against The Machine - Rage Against The Machine (CD /180g Vinyl)
Tubular Bells 1-3 - Mike Oldfield
if an album has already been posted which you would also like to reccomend please make a post saying:
'insert album here' 'insert artist hear' +1
this will allow me to rank the albums depending on how many reccomendations they get
I know i have missed lots, if you see any i have missed just post to let me know
once we have a substantial list for each i will open a vote to vote for the top 5 in each genre
