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.

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)

Like everyone said, 10 is pretty tough, but it suggests a good sampling of everyone's taste, and  music is a great way to judge someone's personality. My own picks of the moment, in no order and minus links to the covers...

The White Album (The Beatles)
Aquemini (Outkast)
The Boatman's Call (Nick Cave)
Ziggy Stardust (David Bowie)
Pink Moon (Nick Drake)
Belle And Sebastian (If You're Feeling Sinister)
The Cure (Disintegration)
Bjork (Homogenic)
The Velvet Underground (Loaded)
and the requisite Radiohead pick...Kid A

Wow, what a mellow list. Five years ago, Marilyn Manson and NIN would have been all over it.

Nina Simone - blues

greatest hits collection of singles kind of defeats the purpose of listing "albums".

Post by: Stefen on June 27, 2005, 12:04:17 AM
Aside from that, I think your list is good. Alot of albums I enjoy on that list particularly Harvest. I would have left off Coldplay cause I feel they are a product of not having any good popular smart music nowadays so the next best thing will do, but I like your list. I feel the same way about Elton John. I like him but not enough to buy entire albums, his greatest hits is enough for me. Has it all in one package but it really can't be considered a favorite album, ya know?

the greatest hits stuff is because they've done a lot of great songs but they weren't on just one "album". so the greatest hits thing kinda works. besides there was no rule you couldn't have a compliation of greatest hits on your list so why not

I wasn't really interested in the people who don't listen to the music.  It's not like those covers are similar to other covers.  You know them or you don't.  People don't usually go "Hey I don't own that album but I really like it."

The reason we post big images is so people can read the title.

If the title is not present or you have small images, you post the name or album to clue us in.  Now we have no idea what you're talking about, and posting that didn't mean anything to anyone.

Titles make a world of difference.

Um..Yes i'm serious..At this moment in my life the killers album is the best out there in my opinion...i looked at your list..anyone who would pick radiohead's hail to the theif over Kid A or OK Computer is also obviously picking a current favorite rather than something more meaningful.  

I do respect your comment though...and to answer Pubrick..picking the new Sigur Ros album is not invalidated, at least in my mind because based on that single song i've heard i can judge and include the new album anytime i feel like it.  

I know my picks were not as obscure as everyone elses, but at least i'm being honest.  With all the random assorted picks among the group it is clear that people are picking album covers and originality over the music.

I'd have to say in no particular order,

The Beatles-White Album
The Beach Boys-Smiley Smile
Cherry Twister- At home with Cherry Twister
Bleu-Redhead
Pearl Jam-Ten
Superdrag-Last Call For Vitriol
Nirvana-Unplugged In New York

Yeah I love that album. Highly underrated. I saw him recently at the Tap Room in the Knitting Factory in NYC. Drove from philly up to see him play only 6 songs :(. At least it was only 8 bucks. Great soulful voice live as well.

i don't know what to roll my eyes at more: that you're both following some sort of trend, or that one of you is clearly not following closely enough to get the damn title right.

The trend is that people are starting to realize how brilliant the album really is.

You switched to the right Spoon album, though.  We also would have accepted "Kill the Moonlight".

I'm getting a little tired of hearing about Neutral Milk Hotel... that album is good and all, but that shit came out ages ago and while it probably belonged on top ten lists for 1998, I don't think it's a number one ever material in the least.

Also, with some exceptions, most people's lists appear to only have albums that came out within the last few years.  Can we get an age check here, kids?

Post by: Raikus on June 20, 2006, 10:51:06 AM
This last year I've tried to let go of the pretentious aspect and just focus on stuff I enjoy listening too. As for the Panic! qualms, they're getting too overexposed and overplayed but their CD is really good and I enjoy repeat listens (as I have since before they were played mainstream). If you're knocking it out of contention due to it being mainstream now, well give some of the other songs a listen and see what you think minus bias. I like their blending of classical and mild electronica. The lyrics are interesting and vocals are dead on.

So what if 14 year old girls now like them. It doesn't affect my enjoyment.

As for Flickerstick I saw the crap show too and somehow got their album way back in the day. Recently I found it on my iPod and have been listening to it fairly often. That's why I put it on the list. The music is rock but it's certainly a different type. I find myself going back to it. Again, avoid the pretension and just listen to what you like. I think that's what my new list reflects.
Title: Re: 10 favorite albums

My list was mostly the stuff in heaviest rotation lately.  If I were to do a Top 10 Ever, it'd probably look something like...

10 - Brian Eno - Another Green World
9 - Sufjan Stevens - Greetings From Michigan The Great Lakes State
8 - Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral
7 - King Crimson - In The Court of the Crimson King
6 - Neutral Milk Hotel - In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
5 - Tom Waits - Rain Dogs
4 - Bjork - Vespertine
3 - Yes - Fragile
2 - Beatles - White
1 - Pink Floyd - The Wall 

I'd better settle on that before I pick at it forever, but yeah, my top 10 overall would look more like that (and yes NMH still appears on it).

Bright Eyes - Lifted, or The Story is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground
Radiohead - OK Computer
Tool - Aenima
Sarah McLachlan - Fumbling Towards Ecstasy
Feeder - Comfort In Sound
Jeff Buckley - Grace
Counting Crows - August and Everything After
Placebo - Black Market Music

edit: Honorable mentions = Stereophonics, "You Gotta Go There To Come Back"; Minibar, "Fly Below the Radar"; Something For Kate, "Echolalia"; Fiona Apple, "When The Pawn, etc."; David Poe, "David Poe"; Our Lady Peace, "Spiritual Machines"; Remy Zero, "The Golden Hum"; Ours, "Distorted Lullabies"; The Mayfield Four, "Fallout"; Black Lab, "Your Body Above Me".

Okay. So I couldn't remember everything I had put on my list, so I went back to see if it still holds up, and sure enough. I might switch a couple from my top ten with a couple of my honorable mentions -- specifically bumping Feeder and Placebo for Stereophonics and David Poe -- but this is a list I feel good about hanging my hat on at the end of the day.

And I don't feel an ounce of guilt about not having a pre-90s album on here.

I'm not sure that I fully understand this...what are you referencing? Zeppelin, Floyd, velvet underground, or what? I'm not criticizing what you said i just don't really understand...I'm sure it's possible that this wasn't directed towards me, but i wasn't sure what exactly you meant? the reason for this is because, if i would have made a list at 16 it would have been like: Ramones-Ramones, and Clash-Clash...and that was old, and that was age 8 for me...

And No? I'm not sure how to properly use it?
here you go, just cos you're dense and i feel sorry for anyone you'll ever meet in your life:

I'm not sure that I fully understand this...what are you referencing?
that's a question.
Zeppelin, Floyd, velvet underground, or what?
congratulations, that's a question too.
I'm not criticizing what you said i just don't really understand?
uh this isn't a question.. the answer to what you're saying here and onwards would be:
how the fuck should we know? do you or do you not really understand, are you or are you not criticizing what he said?
but i wasn't sure what exactly you meant?
i don't know, were you? (a ridiculous word order to boot)
and that was age 8 for me?
i don't know, was it?

so you see how your grasp on the english language makes JG look like Godardian.

I think what Neil is trying to indicate is that he talks with a Valley Girl accent, in which his voice lilts up at the end of every sentence as though it were a question.

"So, like, I was down at the mall?  And this guy walked up to me?  And he was all like, 'Hi'?  And I was like, 'Eww'?  And then he, like, made this face?  So I, like, stabbed him?"

So, as you can see, what you perceive as bad english might actually be great dialect.  Neil could be the Anthony Burgess or Hubert Selby of our generation.

...

Or not.

You = Wrong

i so am not.

I don't understand why you had to pit the two against each other, but Zeppelin does fall to Pink Floyd pretty badly.  I mean, I know they're the most popular Floyd albums, but a band that produces masterpieces like The Wall and Dark Side places them really high up above a lot of bands, but they've also got albums like Animals, Wish You Were Here, and Division Bell.

Zeppelin's good, but they're no Floyd.

6

Electric Ladyland - speaks for itself.

9
(http://cover7.cduniverse.com/CDUCoverArt/Music/Large/superd_5939328.jpg)
On the Beach is Neil Young's best album. absolutely incredible from beginning to end, climaxing like vagina orgasm throughout the second half. every song makes my soul melt.

3
(http://cover7.cduniverse.com/MuzeAudioArt/Large/08/62808.jpg)
there are many miles davis albums that could appear on this list. i picked this one because it's hardcore heavy metal rock and roll at its finest. i like the cover too.

8
(http://cover7.cduniverse.com/CDUCoverArt/Music/Large/6308643.jpg)
Bob Dylan Nashville Skyline. perfect soundtrack to any good day. favorite dylan depends on my mood. i love dylan when he sings like this.

5
(http://farm1.static.flickr.com/4/9236034_5029b56a5f.jpg?v=0)
Ween's WHITE PEPPER. the beatles gone brown. brimming with great ideas.

10
(http://www.aksolas.com/images/ManWhoSoldTheWorld.jpg)
Man Who Sold The World. i want this coverart as a giant poster in my house.

2
(http://cover7.cduniverse.com/MuzeAudioArt/Large/98/1017798.jpg)
Music from Big Pink, by The Band. this band is the only band in the world that can justifiably call itself The Band. they are The Band. this is THE The Band album.

4
(http://cover7.cduniverse.com/MuzeAudioArt/Large/64/163064.jpg)
2Pac - Me Against the World
dark, heavy beats and some of tupac's most gripping rhymes. he called it his blues record.

7
(http://cover7.cduniverse.com/CDUCoverArt/Music/Large/7928710.jpg)
Beatles - Revolver
a wide-ranging masterpiece that captures a crucial moment in time and makes it timeless. george harrison shines repeatedly throughout, and Tomorrow Never Knows is my favorite song ever.

1

Wow... two people with Amnesiac at #1 in the last two days. That makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It's still my favorite. The rest of my list has probably changed dramatically, but not Amnesiac. It could be like Magnolia, one of those transformative experiences that creates a permanent affinity.

so his choices should have structure to it? While i don't agree with any of his choices, I'm glad he didn't let his choices affect each other.

I could be wrong, but if anything I feel these choices seem to be the most recent work of a lot of these artists. Almost like you got sick of their older work because you heard it too much and you chose stuff later in their careers because you have more of a stomach for it.

like for weezer, not the blue album or pinkerton? are you on crack with the red album? maybe this is the random pas means actually.

or modest mouse, you picked probably their worst album. I'd go the lonesome crowded west or the moon & Antarctica.

though weezer and modest mouse probably wouldn't make it on my list at all. i'mma have to think on my top 10 and look at my old lists.

well, without having ''structure'' per se, let's see on an album per album basis
Arcade Fire- The Suburbs-----> Very recent, very low shelf life according to my intial love and complete lack of care now
The White Stripes- Elephant----->Defendable
Beck- Sea Change----->Defendable
Eminem- The Slim Shady LP ----->Fine if you put other hip-hoppy shit on the list, but alone in there, weird
The Beatles- Rubber Soul ----->Bam! My own favorite Beatle album too, but between Eminem and Black Sabbath  :shock:
Black Sabbath- Paranoid----->Defendable... if it wasn't the only remotely rock album on the list
Franz Ferdinand- Tonight----->I can't name a single song on this album even though I own it. Completely forgetable.
Nirvana- Nevermind ----->Ok I guess
Modest Mouse- We were dead before the ship even sank ----->Worst album by this band ever, and I have Moon and Antarctica as my top 3-5 ever probably
Weezer- Red Album----->Worst album by this band ever

I agree with you, Pas, the list doesn't suit my taste either, however, it's his list and your assessment of its falterings is laughable.  By your logic, he should have more hip hop on there to justify the one hip hop album, and more "rock" (which, Black Sabbath isn't rock, it's proto-Doom) to justify Sabbath.

Though I do agree, Modest Mouse's newest album is aptly titled and should be barred from any top 10 list.

It's like a wild ride through the musical tastes of 4 different people. People who like Black Sabbath so much don't like Beck just as much. Or Eminem. It doesn't follow logic!

Post by: Jeremy Blackman on May 03, 2011, 05:49:24 PM
I agree, Reelist's list is not that bad. The eclectic nature of the list redeems it, if anything.

The Red Album had at least a few very good songs (Greatest Man, Heart Songs, maybe even Angel), but the rest of it doesn't work for me at all. I would also choose an earlier Weezer album. I think most people agree that the Green Album (which I still loved) was followed by a steady decline. Although I'm sick of most of its songs by now (Sweater Song and Say It Ain't So, especially), the Blue Album has some of the most incredible pop songwriting ever. "Holiday" and "Only In Dreams" are underappreciated.

That said, I named this thread 10 favorite albums for a reason. Favorites change. I know my current favorites list would definitely include albums from the last 2-3 years. I think a new album is a completely legitimate choice for a favorites list as soon as you've let it properly sink in.

Funny that Reelist's old post has sparked an entire semi-controversial conversation. Don't stop!

It's satisfying to see all the music you love in a picure like that. I think mine already needs updating, I made a couple of errors last time. I've heard a bunch of releases that have been good this year but I'm kinda disappointed that there's only been like only one or two truly wowing albums in the first six months. I feel the second half will make up for it. Especially with the new Flying Lotus stuff.

I'll update with my top 5.



(http://xixax.com/jb/albums6715/nomorestories.jpg)
1. Mew - No More Stories...


(http://xixax.com/jb/albums6715/hazards.jpg)
2. The Decemberists - The Hazards of Love


(http://xixax.com/jb/albums6715/amnesiac.jpg)
3. Radiohead - Amnesiac


(http://xixax.com/jb/albums6715/sigur.jpg)
4. Sigur Rs - ( )


(http://xixax.com/jb/albums6715/ellipse)
5. Imogen Heap - Ellipse


No More Stories and The Hazards of Love have been my two most favorite albums for years. They have stood up to an absurd number of listens and have grown on me more than I imagined was possible.

I could have chosen something else for #5, like a Bjork or a Mm or a Beatles. But I have to be honest and let the list relflect that I've listen to Ellipse many many times.

I might have even included a Paramore album, but none of them are consistent enough. If I could put together a Paramore compilation with "Hallelujah," "All I Wanted," "Careful," and "Be Alone," that could take #4.
