What is for you the best album ever ?

Reply #25
It's too difficult to answer this, cause the music I hear strongly depends on moods. That's what makes me switch between cradle of filth, marilyn manson or weird al yankovic. Maybe in ten years, wehn I can look back at 15years of music experience I'll be able to choose my own favorite album. Hélas, not now...
I love the moderators.

Incredible String Band - 5000 Spirits (Layers of the Onion)

An absolute revelation in a time of 'Itsy-Bitsy, Teeny-Weeny, Yellow Polka-Dot Bikinis'

Surprised not to see any Dylan in here, but pleased at the amount of Pink Floyd.

I don't know.
But I'll tell you the name of the album that changed my life:
Guns N' Roses - Appetite for destruction

It opened my eyes to better music (what I listened to before is embarrasing...)
I'm the one in the picture, sitting on a giant cabbage in Mexico, circa 1978.

Hard to choose.
I'd say my favourite album is "System Of A Down - Steal This Album!"
Hard work might not kill you, but why take any chances?

I have no idea. I love too much genres and albums to pick one. Even 5 albums would be hard.

Nevertheless, some of my favourites:

Nargaroth - Herbstleyd
Darkthrone - The united trilogy of A blaze in the northern sky/Under a funeral moon/Transylvanian hunger
Moonblood - Split LP with Deathspell Omega
Burzum - The first 4 albums are all equally good
Tool - Aenima
Pink Floyd - The dark side of the moon
Led Zeppelin - IV
Ludwig van Beethoven - Symphonie Nr. 9 (Karajan/Berliner Philharmoniker)
Richard Wagner - Parsifal (Knappertsbusch/Chor und Orchester der Bayreuther Festspiele, 1951)

If somebody asks me about my favourite bands, Dire Straits and Pink Floyd are always the first two I mention.  I think our tastes of music match very well. (Assuming you like Eagles, Bruce Springsteen, Toto, Enya ... also )

I'm not sure what to pick as my absolute favourite. Probably still Dire Straits - On Every Street.

Hmmm... interesting how many fans Pink Floyds have... I've been listening to music from 1967 (I was 12 then  ) but never liked the ones like Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones, Elton John, Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, Status Quo and a pair of others... till today I don't why. It just happened so.
But always and from the very start I liked Beatles, King Crimson, Yes, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Budgie, Atomic Rooster, ELP, Santana, Deep Purple, Jethro Tull, Genesis, AC/DC, Uriah Heep, ZZ Top, Rush and many, many others...
I have more than 8000 albums and really don't know, what could be the best. Depends a lot on the mood...

Some of my prefered ones:

Depeche Mode - "Violator"
Pink Floyd - it's difficult to select one... maybe "Pulse" for the great "songs combo" and the live recording...
Metallica - difficult to pick one again... maybe "Black album", the transition...
Placebo - "Without you I'm nothing"
David Bowie - "White tie, black noise"
Autechre - "Garbage EP" (The electronic-abstrabtion-state-of-the-art)
Radiohead - "Kid A"
The Prodigy - "The Fat of the land"
Los Ilegales - "Regreso al sexo quimicamente puro". "Los ilegales" are an spanish rock band, with great great lyrics, the translation of the title of the album is something like "Return to chemical-pure sex"...

There are more... but I think are my prefered ones.
Regards.

Best soundtrack ever - Gladiator by Hans Zimmer.


That is really an awesome album, and very sad.

I'll have to throw in a soundtrack as well:
David Arnold -- Stargate

It might be a dull movie but the soundtrack is one of the most powerful and dynamic pieces of classical music I've ever heard.
