View Full Version : OK, ok listen. What is your favorite album. Ever.


(Hail to the thief)
07-11-2005, 10:44 AM
I know this might seem like something that is always asked, but it actually isnt.

Basically, what is your favorite album/cd/record EVER made.

Base your answer upon how much you listen to it, how it affects you personally etc.

And pretend that I'm holding a gun to your head and you HAVE to tell me or else I'll blow your brains all over the walls. (aka no "there's just so many that i love" answers)


I'll start:

Oh crap. This is so hard.
Between Kid A and Pinkerton , ill go with Pinkerton.

I don't know if this is against the rules here. It is in R&M. Then again, come to think of it, I can't ever remember seeing any rules for A&I. In that case:

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik

Billy Bragg - Back to Basics

I know neither are proper albums, but both are topnotch. If I could only have two albums to listen to for the rest of my life, it would be those two. And I'd throw in Spice to lighten it up. Good times.

They're obviously both very similar, but The Olivia Tremor Control is a bit more catchy and poppier. My word to describe The Olivia Tremor Control has always been "melting," and if you've heard them, then that might make sense; however, I find the Circulatory System to be even more so (more druggy) and a bit more mellow, at that.

Both are great bands, but I strongly prefer The Olivia Tremor Control.

In Utero has all sorts of dumb embarassing moments, "Rape Me", "Serve the Servants", "Tourrettes" etc. Plus, it's a really forced attempt to sound "punk" when Nirvana were way stronger as a pop band with a lot of kick, as opposed to a band that kicked and happened to be tuneful.

While that is a great debut, I believe The Chronicles of Life and Death is far superior.

No way, man. That album rips off of Jay-Z AND Chris Rock. Their debut is so much more original, emotional, emo, and tional.

Seriously.

"22 days before Halloween. How did I know she'd be my evil queen?" "Captivate me. I want good thoughts inside of my head." "The little things, litttle things; they just won't go away. The little things, little things, made me who I am today." "I don't want you. I heard you say you're not good enough for me."

If those quotes don't make you feel like you're dancing with Jesus, nothing will.

The poets of the 21st century, they are.

I have nothing on Good Charlotte. moz, PixiesFanYo, Metaliq, Subtle, A Perfect Sonnet, and others will attest to that. I only hope that I can be as good as they are.

You love that album, too? My parents and I sing along to "What Is a Juggalo?" all the time. That "Hulkamaniac" part brings us all to tears every time.

EDIT: The sad part is that my sister has listened to this band for a decade and is a true fan, owning almost everything they've released.

Yep, they're opening for the Dead Kennedies. Indeed, it's not that big of a deal, but it's still neat to have the chance to play with legends. Kerry King might be coming to the guitar store that I work at, too.

most likely lateralus. Tool was my first concert i went for the tour of this album. This cd was probably one of the first i flogged to death but never really got sick of.

Getting into tool led me into other bands that were a lot more different from the nu metal i was listening to at the time. It was definately led me on to bigger and better things in a musical sense and opened my ears in a lot of ways. I dont listen to it much now but i still like to put it on every now and then.

Of the albums I own and have listened to? That's still a hard one, with all those great Beatles albums floating around, and Yes' period of amazing (71-75), and all the like, but then you have masterpieces like Radiohead's OK Computer and Kid A.

Man, it's a pretty tough fight in my mind between The White Album, Fragile, Tales From Topographic Oceans, OKC, and Kid A. I think I am going to sit down and listen to all of them and get back to you guys on this.

Something odd happened to me the other day in that I suddenly wondered whether OK Computer was really my favourite album of all time, or whether I'd just got used to thinking of it that way (I hadn't listened to the whole thing for a while). Then I put it on again and I realised that although it's not clearly above everything else like it used to be, I still can't really see anything else overtaking it anytime soon. :-\ So I'm still as hopeless a fanboy as ever.

Weird. Same exact thing happened to me with OKC. I still hold it in the same position, but the last listening experience wasnt too memorable. (I fell asleep in the middle of it)

What a mean question to ask:

Modest Mouse - Lonesome Crowded West, anything by the Decemberists, and Transatlanticism are close, Tool-Lateralus, Pink Floyd-Wish You Were Here are closer...but:

The Mars Volta - De-Loused in the Comatorium
