The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
The Beatles - Abbey Road
Weezer - Pinkerton
Eels - Beautiful Freak
The Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness

Well, it's a music thread, so maybe it will get spared. :>

I can break it out of the doldrums of regular boring ole list-dom! Time to make it a full-fledged Desert Island thread.

--Hüsker Dü: Zen Arcade

The production values are bad at times on this, and the vocals really needed to be clearer, but DAMN this is a powerful album. I don't know if I've heard anyone sing about loss of faith like Bob & Grant do on this (though I haven't heard as much old country or outlaw country as I'd like). Maybe the best concept album I've heard (Pink Floyd? Hock ptooey!). SST ruled.

--The Minutemen: Double Nickels on the Dime

Did I mention SST ruled? This is actually a lot better than Zen Arcade, and that takes some doing. Walk onto a college campus, a place where learning and open-mindedness is supposed to be a calling card, and you can sit there all day, awash in people who don't have the brains or the guts to understand the Minutemen. There isn't a whole lot better to be heard in music than hearing the late, great D. Boon yelling, "Let yourself be heard!" A-to the motherfucking-men, brother.

--Kraftwerk: Trans-Europe Express

I hate techno; I don't think music should be controlled and programmed, as these guys have done for thirty-some-odd years. But, this is the one album where, if it were all controlled with *this* kind of skill, I'd be all for it. At times a lovely, melodious album, at times a haunting, incisive trip inside your head. If only today's "techno artists" could reach for this release.

I'll come back with more later; I'm kinda tired.

Old Dirty Bastard-N***a' Please

Stone Temple Pilots-Purple

G. Love and Special Sauce-Philadelphonic

Outkast-Stankonia

Mighty Mighty Bosstones-Let's Face It

Magnolia Soundtrack

The Dead Boys-Young Loud and Snotty

The Best of Simon and Garfunkle

They Might Be Giants (Giant Double CD Compilation Album)

Blue Man Group-Audio

(note: for some reason I HAD to name compilation albums. I can't help it. For Simon and Garfunkle I couldn't pick a single favorite so I went with the comp because it spanned so many hits, and as for TMBG's, I couldn't help it, there's like four CD's worth of material on that mug and lots of early non-hits and unheard material)

Vs is my favorite, and I think they're all really wonderful albums. Binaural is even growing on me now.

I've always been partial to Vitalogy among PJ albums, if just because Spin the Black Circle is a decent Hüsker Dü aping and it isn't much of a grunge album, per se. I don't think I've been able to sit through any of their other discs, with the exception of maybe Vs. The other ones make me want to bash my head into things, much like listening to to post-Rhoades Ozzy.

Edit: that should be "the later ones", not "the other ones." Ten is a fine record.

Ten is an odd record...it's got five songs that are Pearl Jam's all-time classics (Alive, Black, Even Flow, Jeremy and Release) but the rest of the disc does NOTHING for me.

Ten has...

Once (Part I of the Trilogy)
Even Flow (Very awesome song about homelessness and well known to Raven fans)
Alive (Part II of the Trilogy and famous as the first Pearl Jam single ever)
Why Go (Every teenager's problems with their parents times 1,000,000)
Black (AWESOME. My second favorite Pearl Jam song)
Jeremy (BEST GRUNGE SONG EVER. One of the best songs ever, period. My personal favorite from Pearl Jam)
Oceans (Beautiful)
Porch (Pearl Jam classic unmentioned before)
Garden (Good song, but probably the lowpoint of the album)
Deep (Disturbing, and that makes it awesome)
Release (Beautiful)
---
Master/Slave (Instrumentalish and hiddenish)

Really, really great album, especially considering it has my top two favorite PJ songs, but overall, I still think Vs is better, but that's just me.

I'm not going to post my top ten b/c I love too many albums. I will say that Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon should be on there. Besides its musical quality, it was in the top 40 for some ungodly length of time--14 years or something like that.

I am a big Tool fan and of the firm belief that Lateralus will one day rank up there among the greatest albums of all time. It's got to age a bit first, though.

Oy. This is the most horrible task I can possibly imagine, paring down my beloved collection to 10, and not throwing any compilations on it. Oh well:

Tori Amos - Under The Pink: Most beautiful album I've ever heard. The only album I can listen to, and if in the right frame of mind I know it will make me weep like a small child. Jubuki mentioned the idea of loss of faith in his earlier post. Well this is the feminine response to loss of faith in the institutions that deal in such things. Every outcast boy in the world should listen to "Pretty Good Year" and make it their own.

Harry Chapin - Sniper and Other Love Songs: Listen to the song "Sniper". Now listen to it again. Now move on to the next album, because there's nothing more I need to say about this one.

A Silver Mt. Zion - He Has Left Us Alone....: This album is the work of a stripped down core from Godspeed You Black Emperor (whose F#A#oo and Lift Your Hands would be on a top 20 list) and it just makes you hurt. If the world is going to end in quiet dimunition instead of fiery apocalypse, this will be the soundtrack to the endtimes. Amazing use of found recordings add to the mix (the preacher ranting about the "god-man" is just intense as all fuck)

And to keep this post from being too freaking long for words, the final 7, without comment:

Peter Gabriel - So
Flaming Lips - Soft Bulletin
Metallica - Master Of Puppets
Marvin Gaye - What's Going On
Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
They Might Be Giants - Flood
Beatles - Revolver



You never know when you'll meet that special someone... the someone that's mysteriously blind to your flaws. or, you know, stupid enough not to realize that yes, you really are that cynical.
