03.23.10 What I'm Digging Right Now03.19.10 My Favorite Albums

My Favorite Albums

These are my "Favorite" albums of all time. These are sure not the best albums of all time, but they are my favorite albums because I love the music that blasts through my speakers every time I play any of these albums. I hope you like some of these albums, Im sure you will...
1Red Hot Chili Peppers
Blood Sugar Sex Magik


This Album Just brings me back to 10th grade when I bought it. I threw it into my cd player in the Best Buy parking lot and listened to flea and Chad Smith through down a sweet drum and bass line for "power of equality", the opening track to this music masterpiece. For me this is the Chili Peppers crowning jewel, many people say Californication, but I love this "in your face album", its brash, its raw, but extremely technically sound, it better be if Rick Rubin produces it. The album is splendidly mixed, as all the songs seem to really flow together, like most great albums do. Each song has a sort of "jaminess" to them, and there is very rarely any lag time between songs, as each song flows into another. This album is everything to me, and deserves a good listening to. You have to just look past "Under the Bridge" and "Give It Away", as these are amazing tracks, you need to listen to the record as a whole. Each song has a meaning and story of its own, whether it be shooting up heroin under a free-way over pass, or about a fallen friend, or your babysitter giving you her favorite leather jacket, give this album a chance, it deserves it.
2Led Zeppelin
Physical Graffiti


In my view Led Zeppelin is the most talented band of all time. Tomorrow I may change my mind and it could be the stones or the beatles but for right now its Zeppelin. Every album is pure gold and kicks everyones ass whenever they decide to plunge into the world of guitar riffs powered by mr. James Patrick Page. Its hard to even choose a "best" Zeppelin album, in my eyes Led Zeppelin II is their "best", but my favorite is Physical Graffiti. I think this album hits dynamics that all the other albums can't seem to hit. Its not just the epic "Kashmir" or "In My Time Of Dying" that does it for me, I'm not saying these songs aren't great (remember I did say epic) they just are songs that wrap the entire album together. Whether its "Custard pie" kicking the album off, or the pure grit of "The Wanton Song" I love this album, of course I love every Zeppelin Album.
3 Sublime
40 OZ To Freedom


You don't have to be a stoner to love this band, For that matter if you love Sublime it doesn't mean you are a stoner. They are just pure fun, every song reminds you of that summer at the beach where you may/may not have drank to many beers and fell asleep in the lifeguard stand. Sublime was a special band in a special time, and ruled Orange County like kings in the early 90's. I love this record, because it is much like there extremely successful self-titled album "Sublime" just not as quite cleaned up. Thats what I love about it, you can tell these songs were chanted by Sublime underground followers during their early days, and I love it. "Just Push" pulsates through my veins whenever I think of sublime, maybe thats why I like this album more than there self-titled one, or maybe it just rocks a little harder, and is a little bit more "Ska-ish". Anyways I really love this album for all its worth.
4 Weezer
Blue Album


If you do not own a copy of this album than shame on you. Shame on you because this album to me one of th most complete albums of my life time. Each song sounds a little bit like the last, yet each song has its own playful identity, that just puts a smile on your face. Weezer showed exceptional promise, bolstering the "Blue Album"and than "Pinkerton" an album that to me strikes extremely close to the completeness of the "Blue Album". After these to albums though Weezer wen't down hill, to the point that any new Weezer song I seem to hear makes me almost want to throw up, for the simple fact being, what in the hell happened to this band. If you have mixed feelings towards this band, thats okay, so do I, but go back and listen to this album it is amazing and a 90's classic.
5Radiohead
Ok Computer


Pure and simple, probably the most influential album of my generation, put out by one of the most genius bands ever to walk the earth. Everyone knows "Ok Computer" and if you don't how did you hear about this website and not one of the best albums in alternative rock? If this list was centered on quality over fondness it would probably be number one, "Ok Computer" rules king over almost everyone.
6Rage Against The Machine
Rage Against The Machine


The Ten Commandments, PERIOD.
7Jimmy Eat World
Bleed American


This Album is great, I am being brief because I am a little tired but listen to "Hear You Me" and "Cautioners" and tell me those are not great alternative rock songs.
8Pearl Jam
Ten


In my eyes the best debut album ever. EDDIE, EDDIE, EDDIE.
9Red Hot Chili Peppers
Californication


The "other" best Chili Peppers Album
10Green Day
Dookie


One of those bands I really kinda of hate, honestly, but this album is superb.
11Bloc Party
Silent Alarm


Turn the volume up, the drums are amazing, and yes they are killer live.
12Sublime
Sublime


The "other" best sublime album.
13 Pink Floyd
Dark Side Of The Moon


Pure Genius. There should be rules when you listen to this record, like 1. You have to listen to it on vinyl, 2. do not let your friend-first-time-shroom-eater even touch/look at the album (your just not ready for that commitment yet bud), and 3. Once you are finished listening to the album in its entirety (kind of an unwritten rule) refrain from any rock and roll music for 48 hours. This album is powerful, enjoy.
14Muse
Absolution


My favorite Muse album, from a band I really love.
15Wolfmother
Wolfmother


miss Led Zeppelin? Its ok Wolfmother is here, just don't listen to "Cosmic Egg" after you listen to this album, you might cry.
16Third Eye Blind
Third Eye Blind


Probably one of the best flowing albums I have ever heard.
17 The Beatles
Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band


DUH.
18Slightly Stoopid
Everything You Need


I am not a stoner, I really just like this band, and this album. If you own a convertible this album is maybe three times as good, no lie.
19Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin II


In my opinion the best Led Zeppelin record.
20Neutral Milk Hotel
In The Aeroplane Over The Sea


If I were a barista who chose recycling over sleep and rolled my own cigarettes This would be number one on my list. Alas I choose sleep, but this is an Indie classic, and I think its safe to say the best indie record out there, real music magic here.
21Pepper
No Shame


Extremely likable album, and yes I am not a stoner, but I do really like reggae and all the island sounds that accompany this genre.
22The Mars Volta
De-Loused In The Comatorium


Brilliant, don't get me started.
23 Beastie Boys
Licence to Ill


Beastie Boys at there absolute best.
24 Coheed and Cambria
Second Stage Turbine Blade


An album I can listen to stop to finish every time, plus I love the drums.
25Red Hot Chili Peppers
Stadium Arcadium


Sad to see this is John Frusciante's last album as a pepper. Oh Well I still love their music, and when I first purchased this CD I listened to it for about 6 months straight.
26Soundgarden
Superunknown


One of my favorite voices ever, next to Freddy Mercury, Mr. Chris Cornell. Solo stuff=trash.
27 Jimi Hendrix
Electric Ladyland


The best Guitarist's best album, nothing else to say there, except Mitch Mitchell bangs the shit out of his drums.
28Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin IV


To most people the best of the best of Led Zeppelin.
29 The Raconteurs
Consoler Of The Lonely


The best sounding album I have heard in a very long time. This CD is my favorite at this very moment, nothing but Jack White at his best.
30Lupe Fiasco
The Cool


Rap that actually matters, best hip-hop lyrics I have ever heard.
31Slightly Stoopid
Closer To The Sun


Me=Not a stoner (I Promise)
32 N.W.A.
Straight Outta Compton


Best Hip Hop Album ever, behind maybe NAS Illmatic, who really knows.
33Beck
Guero


I love this CD. Maybe should have the same rules as my rules for "Dark Side Of The Moon".
34 Death Cab For Cutie
Transalanticism


"Sound of Settling"=Mood Changer.
35The Clash
London Calling


EXCELLENCE.
36The White Stripes
Elephant


One of the best CDS in the past twenty years, and no its not because of "Seven Nation Army" of course that does help a little.
37 Bob Marley
Exodus


My Favorite album from one of the best songwriters ever.
38 Bright Eyes
I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning


Unspoken rule: This album can only be listened to in the winter. Everyone I have ever talked to about Bright Eyes agrees with me.
39The Flaming Lips
Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots


makes you want to turn into candy and then eat yourself.
40 Eddie Vedder
Into To The Wild (Soundtrack)


Closest he ever came to a solo record, and way better than the last three Pearl Jam albums combined. This soundtrack really made a good movie great.
