Kate Bush - Lionheart.

Except I disliked it the first five times I heard it - then I quickly grew to like it.

7th Son of a 7th Son is however a very good album, although I like No Prayer for the Dying from Iron Maiden better.

Close, but my personal choice is "The Dark Side Of The Moon".

Jane's Addiction - Nothing's Shocking

I'm a big Perry Farrell fan.  Most, if not all, of his music is pretty simple and straight forward, but that doesn't mean it can't be beautiful too, which I think it is.  That first major-label album is my favourite though, I can listen to that from start to finish pretty much any time.  I like his Porno For Pyros stuff too, and his solo album from 2002, but that one's the one.  So far anyways. (May or may not have something to do with the fact that the day this came out and I bought it was also the day I dropped acid for the first time and listened to that album over and over all night as I was chauffered around with a bunch of friends.  I think I was 17, I think it was 1988, was a great night, from my perspective anyways, haha)

Bob Dylan, "Highway 61 Revisited".  No question about it. 

From the opening Al Kooper organ riff on "Like a Rolling Stone", right through to "Desolation Row", consistently brilliant lyrics and terrific instrumentals, especially Mike Bloomfield's guitar.

When you're lost in the rain in Juarez, when it's Easter time too --
And your gravity fails, and negativity don't pull ya through --
Don't put on any airs when you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue;
They got some hungry women there, and they'll really make a mess out of you....

At this moment.....

I can honestly say 'You Had It Coming' by Jeff Beck.

Next week, however, might reveal something much better. But that's a chance I'll have to take.....

'The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper' came close, but I have to go with 'The Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness'.

I listened (and still listen) to 'Mellon Collie' much more, and it carries emotional imprints from the point in my life when I was listening to it most. Each song carries a different set of memories, depending on what I was thinking and feeling when I listened to that particular song. In a way, the things you were thinking/feeling/experiencing when you were listening to an album affect your opinion of it more than the album itself.

The songs on 'Mellon Collie' also traversed (and provoked) a variety of moods and emotions from beginning to end. 'X.Y.U', for example, would raise my adrenaline to the point that I felt I could (and wanted to) destroy a city with my bare hands. 'We Only Come Out At Night' (the song immediately following 'X.Y.U') would have an opposite, calming effect. I think that the ability to easily and drastically influence the listener's emotions is the mark of a great album. 'Sgt. Pepper' did the same, but not as effectively as 'Mellon Collie'.

THE VELVET UNDERGROUND AND NICO

I can´t remember any other album that can compete with this one. You know, even the cover was an Andy Warhol masterpiece. Peel slowly and see...

If I must pick just one, Pink Floyd - The Wall. But, any Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, Simple Minds plus many others.

Since there seems to be such a liking for Pink Floyd and other stuff of similar age, is everyone as old as I am, or is it just an appreciation of good music?

Since we have more than 35 years separating our births, I would believe it's just that "People Know What's Good™"
