What Are Your 5 Favorite Albums Of All Time?

Reply #25
1. Public Enemy - Yo ! Bum rush the show
    I personally think one of the most important bands of the 80's.

2. Eric B & Rakim - Paid in full / Follow the leader (Sorry can't choose)
    Fat beats ans slow raps, 80's.

3. Doe Maar - 4us (Ska/Reggea band with dutch lyrics)
    Also 80's, i guess you'll have to be dutch to understand. 

4. Fatboy Slim - You've come a long way baby
    We'll, i just love that 'big-beat' sound, and he gave you all that nice test sample 

5. Faithless - Reverence
    If you get the chance you've got to see them live. You can 'feel' the energy flowing of the stage. Live they are way better than in the studio ..

In no particular order:

Nirvana: Nevermind
Nirvana: In Utero
Pearl Jam: Ten
Boston: Boston
Smashing Pumpkins: Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness

I wish this was a top 10 list, since I love all of my top 10 albums equally well. Way to hard to make a top 5 list.

That's what I realized after I picked my Top 5, so I cheated and added 5 more Honorable Mentions.  Reading other people's picks has reminded me of a lot of good albums that have slipped my mind.  I've got some ripping and listening to do this weekend.

FSOL's Lifeforms disc set is some of the best ambient I've heard in a long time, with the exception of Enigma's Love Sensuality Devotion (hmm...LSD on purpose? B)) remix collection. Awesome trance/ambient stuff.

Currently I'm listening to Edson Cordeiro and for today this is the best album I listened.

Good music is often relatively unknown and difficult to find.

Heh. Edson Cordeiro is Brazilian. I have some albums by him.

The guy has a soprano voice, and he does both classical (Der Hölle Rache Kocht) music and disco (I Love the Nightlife, I Will Survive, etc.)

My favorites:
1) Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
2) Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of The Moon
3) The Who - Tommy
4) Queen - Greatest Hits II
5) Vangelis - Portraits

Lots of classical albums too, but that would be really difficult to sort out.

"Spaceship of the imagination" is of the same kind. Another link : http://www.psyshop.com/shop/CDs/tip/tip1cd005.html

I'll soon receive the Frolic CDs I've ordered ("Permafrost" and "To dream, perchance to sleep"), the later seems exellent at first sight (shoutcast). My list may change.

I agree. LUXT is one such band which is unknown, but they pump out some awesome industrial music. It was a royal pain in the ass finding all their current releases on CD. It was worth it though...

"Favorites" also change with a person's mood. Ask this question next month, and the same people will probably list completely different albums.

In the "completely unknown" and yet "exellent" category, I'd put

Pete Namlook - Air 2
QNTAL II

Though they may be quite known in Germany.

And there is a wonderful compilation that two radios used to play here : Ambient soundscapes. Two volumes of 3 CD each. I've been looking for them since years.
At that time, I searched on Napster and could'n find anything. If anyone can find them, I could buy them twice the price if need be.

It's not a soprano voice, but a Counter-tenor voice.
Frequency envelope is different.
Recording seems to be from the mid 90's. I don't found it on Amazon.
May be a recording from the 1996 concert in Jena/Germany at Kultur-Arena 1996.

Now listening to Natalie Merchant . . .

Most people think just, because a band is not popular it's not worth listening to them. I vehemently disagree with them.

Yes, Britney is rumored to sound CD quality with WMA 64

Thus MPC is useless to a majority of the population.
