It's as if you know me.

In no particular order...










Fishbone - The Reality of My Surroundings


Jimi Hendrix - Electric Ladyland




Pink Floyd - Meddle



And I couldn't find link for David Bowie's Hunky Dory which rounds out the top 10.

At wave level, everything exists as a contradiction. Everything is existing in more than one stage/place at any given moment. Everything must move/vibrate and constantly change to exist. Everything, including buildings, mountains, oceans and thoughts.

i think.  this is hard.  some things that used to be favorites, arent anymore.  but then some newer things dont seem like they deserve an 'all time' status.  some of these will probably change in a year or two, but some will be there forever.

I made this list with a few more rules for myself.
Only albums (not greatest hits) > This really had an effect on my top 10.   It would be much different had I used greatest hits, and classier (w/ Prince, Beatles, Isaac Hayes, Rolling Stones, etc)
