Almost any Dream Theater album.  "Awake", "Images and Words", and "Scenes from a Memory" rank up as my top 3.

Angle Dust by Faith No More
No-one managed to get close to it in my mind. It is amazing, because as far as I know the conception of this album was extremely troublesome.

Yes! "Angel Dust." Definitely the first thing that came to my mind.


another vote here, faith no more is my favourite band.. and angel dust it's just great album.. though folks must have been too stoned while recording

John Coltrane's A Love Supreme gets my vote - maybe even beating my Pink Floyd albums as my all-time favorite CD. Late-period Coltrane (from ALS to his death in 1967) isn't for the faint of heart, though

Don't you get bored by listening the same albums over and over again? I do, that's why there isn't a best album ever, just a best album of the moment for me.

Great thread (nicely revived from the dead btw) and a lot of great music mentioned.  However only one album I've ever heard stands above all the others.  And it's hard choice because it's up against some other really great albums. And that album is:

Ayreon - The Human Equation

It's like taking every type of music I love and blending it together into one massive progressive rock/metal opera.  I love it so much.  Not to mention it introduced me to a lot of other bands because their singers participated in it.


Holy crap. I thought no one would mention this one. This has to be, without a doubt, my favorite album as well. It's just so good. Ayreon and Dream Theater are my favorite bands.

Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory by Dream Theater is probably my second favorite album.

I used to listen to all of my CD's in alphabetical order by artist name and then in chronological order by year if they were by the same artist. I didn't deviate from it. No exceptions. Nightwish - Oceanborn, however, is the only album that I broke the chain for when I first heard it and I listened to it about 7 times in a row before going on to the next album.

From early 1959, "Belafonte at Carnegie Hall"  I know most of you on this board aren't old enough to remember 1959, but I was a teenager and I remember.  This was a landmark recording.  The first I ever heard "on location" (outside of studio) recording that actually had good sound.  Heck, it had GREAT sound!  Okay, now I need to find a CD version and see if the magic is still there....

Bad Religion - No Control

Had that album in my cd player for an entire summer without changing it. And i still listen to it now. A truly great album is one that you play and it reminds you of a time and place in your life when you first heard it.

As a lot of people previously said this is just a momentary choice. However I think this is pretty accurate.

Jazz:            Miles Davis - Kind Of Blue
Rock:          King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King
R&B:            Marvin Gaye - What's Going On
Blues:          hard one.. probably B.B. King - Live At The Regal or Robert Cray - Strong Persuader
Classical:      Tchaikovsky - Symphony 6
Electronic:    also hard.. probably The Chemical Brothers - Exit Planet Dust


I'm pleased to see people pick great albums, a lot of Pink Floyd! Happy to see even Maggot Brain among these albums. Too bad people don't listen much to jazz anymore.

Depending on my mood, my favorite album is one of the following:
The Velvet Underground & Nico
the Kinks are the Village Green Preservation Society
Surfer Rosa
Loveless
The Soft Bulletin or
Murray Street

But, that's about as short as I think I could make the list.
It's one of those, depending.
