    It doesn't matter if it's not a rock classic, a classical great, or a well known world music album.


    Mine is: Sacred Spirit: Chants and Dances of the Native Americans.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred_Spirit
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sacred-Spirit-Chants-Dances-Americans/dp/B000009CIO

    I included the Amazon link specifically. It's because if you buy it from Amazon, they give you a second (mp3) album for free download. Or at least they did when I bought it.

    Amazon often give you a free mp3 download of the album you buy anyway. However this second album is different to the CD. It's remixes of Sacred Spirit tracks. Some from the CD. Some from other CDs. ... Of this second album, I like tracks 1, 2, 3, and 5. I tacked those tracks onto my CD rip of the CD album.


    Anyway, the vocals on this album, I think are genuine Native American. (Meaning I do not understand a word.) The instruments seem more like synth drums, toms, that mimic Native American tom-tom style, etc. While you might think that would sound cheap, pointless, or disrespectful. It works completely naturally.

    It's a fairly slow album in places. It's drifty and dreamy. Then in other places it's full of lively beats, and more so in the second album. Yet it still maintains that almost meditative texture.

    I love it. I am often finished by the end of the day, and this album makes perfect sense. I must have listened to it hundreds and hundreds of times.

    This album is eternal and filled with nuance.

    Another one I listen to over and over is Hawkwind - Doremi Fasol Latido.

    (Hawkwind - Sonic Attack, also but minus the title track.)

    Uriah Heep - Look at Yourself (1971 (year I was born)) is probably the Album I play most often. It was definitely my primary driving to work Album, great way to start the day. Audio equivalent of a Caffeine hit :grin:

    Foghat's first album. Simply brilliant.

    Public Service Broadcasting - Race for Space.

    Some really nicely paced electronic music overlaid by period commentary covering Spunik, Gagarin, Kennedy's "We choose to go to the moon" speech, and the Apollo missions. I listen to this over and over again.

    Thank you for submitting an album. I am going to listen to all of these suggestions. I like the Uriah Heap one, which is the only one I listened to so far. I intend to buy it. I find myself bemused at how I never really came across their music though. Plus feeling glad that I asked.

    Since I'm a big Eminem fan I tend to listen to his albums over and over upon release due to his inconsistent period between releases. Not too long ago though I was listening to Labor Days by Aesop Rock and also GodLovesUgly by Atmosphere, there was alos a period where I was just listening to Buckethead, Day Of The Robot is perfect.
