Post by The-sentinel » Fri Feb 04, 2011 1:48 pm

We all have many various albums we like and this often changes over time but most of us have a handful of ones we never get tired of hearing so whats yours.Just say your were going to stranded on a desert island for a year and you could take 5-10 albums with you,you would take....

For me i never tire of the following.

1) Rammstein - Mutter
2) Dark Tranquility - Damage Done
3) Therion - Sirius B / Lemura
4) Black Sabbath - Vol 4
5) Therion - Vovin
6) AC/DC - Back In Black
7) Alice In Chains - Black Gives Way To Blue
8) Iron Maiden - Number Of The Beast

Wow this was harder than I thought it would be. There are so many different types of music I listen to and so many albums I loved at different times of my life. In the end I just thought of the Albums I always grab hold of first when I know I'm off on a long journey anywhere.
Therefore, in no particular order:

1) Amy Winehouse - Back to Black
2) MGMT - Oracular Spectacular
3) Moby - 18
4) Basement Jaxx - Kish Kash
5) Snow Patrol - Final Straw
6) The Ting Tings - We Started Nothing
7) Editors - The Back Room
8) Coldplay - A Rush of Blood to the Head
9) Oasis - (What's the Story) Morning Glory
10) Daft Punk - Discovery

music is about what mood you're in for me.
when you're down you want something to lift you
and sometimes you want to lie on the sofa with the headphones on and drift away
i can think of plenty more but this lot covers most bases

fleetwood mac- rumours
fleetwood mac- tango in the night
black sabbath- sabbath bloody sabbath
deep purple- machine head
gf handel- music for the royal fireworks
the beatles- rubber soul
thin lizzy- live and dangerous
level 42- running in the family
dire straits- brothers in arms
beach boys- made in the usa

Over the decades almost all the music I ever loved also got semi-technically 'studied' to the point of exhaustion, unfortunately.
As it stands the 2 albums I've discovered I still sometimes really do want to hear again aren't by The Byrds, the Left Banke, Television or even what I'd probably have to declare my 2 all time favourite albums [The Stooges' Raw Power and Love's Forever Changes], but:

The Blue Oyster Cult - Tyranny and Mutation
Steely Dan - Katy Lied

I love threads like this as they serve as a reminder to me what albums I have and must listen to again!

Air - Any album but a soft spot for Talkie Walkie
Royksopp - Again any album,cannot chose one I like more than another.
Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells - but usually opt for Incantations afterwards
Andrew Lloyd Webber - Variations - An absolute gem of an album with the greatest musicians available at the time!
Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon - Because it's the law and timeless (well,apart from Time! ;) )
Stone Roses - Second Coming - First album too 'jangly' for me.This album features the most complete,tight musicianship of any band I've ever heard!
Daft Punk - Discovery - Yeah the commercial one,but also the best one!
Radiohead - OK Computer - The only challenger to 'Dark Side..' but rock out more frequently to The Bends!
Chris Rea - Auberge - My most listened to album,beautiful songwriting and sublime slide guitar.
Crash Test Dummies - God Shuffled His Feet - Sort of a right time,right place album for me,full of memories.
Jean-Michel Jarre - Equinoxe - Oxygene created the soundscapes but this album added delicious melodies.
Elbow - Everything! They are geniuses!
Jeff Healey - See The Light - 23 years old when he recorded this! A greatly missed guitar playing God!
Muse - Again,anything and everything! The modern day Queen cutting a flamboyant and classical swathe through the myriad of US shredding and 'possessed by the Devil vocals' bands out there! :)
Rainbow - Rising - but then again any album,even the 80's ones! When you get the Richie bug there's no turning back!
I could go on,as I'm sure the posters above could too but I've got to stop somewhere! So much great music around today that never troubles the charts but must be listened to.So many things were better in the 'Good Old Days' but there is always great music being made somewhere by somebody right now and thank God for that!

Dreamlander-Currently can't stop playing the new Within Temptation album! Found the vocalist as a guest on one of my favourite Armin Van Buuren tracks and discovered she can rock with the best of them,great tunes,phenomenal voice! :) Right,I promise I've finished now! :D
