Default Favorite Albums

I'm surprised nobody started this topic yet (maybe they did). It's kind of similar to ChickShhh's "Recommendable Albums," but this is more focused to your top music albums of all time. Doesn't matter if it's your top 5, top 10, whatever.

I'll try this the best I can to write my own, but it's so hard to choose one album over another. You all know how it goes. This is just my current line-up:

1) Radiohead - Amnesiac
2) Tokyo Jihen - Adult
3) The Beatles - Abbey Road
4) The Newsboys - Love Liberty Disco
5) Muse - Origin of Symmetry

6) Paul McCartney - Red Rose Speedway
7) Shiina Ringo - Karuki Zamen Kuri no Hana
8) Muse - Absolution
9) Shiina Ringo - Shouso Strip
10) Matchbox 20 - More Than You Think You Are

11) The Newsboys - Thrive
12) Meg and Dia - Something Real
13) Kaela Kimura - Kaela
14) Paul McCartney - Ram
15) Paul McCartney - Flaming Pie

16) The Beatles - Rubber Soul
17) The White Stripes - Get Behind Me Satan
18) Kaela Kimura - Circle
19) Aya - Senjou no Hana
20) Miki Fujimoto - Miki1



Yeah, that's 20 now albums.. I really couldn't narrow it down too well. If that's too many, just pretend that I put my top 5 on there and then ignore the others. But then I'm sure there's something I'm forgetting. Oh wells.



Edit: That's my final 20. If I edit it anymore, I'll just replace existing albums instead of adding more to the end.

Haha, yeeeah, I'm not sure if that's exactly the order I'd keep them in. But I do love Red Rose Speedway. Aside from When the Night (which is alright) and Loup (nothing special), I'm infatuated with the album as a whole. That's not counting the bonus tracks on the new edition, though. They're okay, but not worthy of being included in the experience.

Aaaand I think I'm going to add some more albums for a grand total of 20. I added 'Senjou no Hana' by Aya, 'Get Behind Me Satan' by The White Stripes, 'Circle' by Kaela Kimura, and 'More Than You Think You Are' by Matchbox 20. And now I'm done changing my mind. :-B

Lots of good stuff in these lists (I assume ). I need to listen to the Plastic Ono Band's album. I always hear that it was really good, but I was never a big fan of Lennon's post-Beatles stuff, so I'm taking forever to find it. I suppose you'd recommend it, Whispermon, being that it's on your top albums list?

If I read this, I feel son inexperienced in music. I never listened to

- The Beatles
- Coldplay
- Oasis
- Radiohead
- Muse
- Pink Floyd

Well, only some single songs. Beatles would still be the most, I think all in all about 10 songs (And everything included in Yellow Submarine, I love that flick^^). The rest, 0 songs (Oh wait, I heard Creep).
There are so much other well known bands I never listened to, I just took those from this thread, It would be even more if there were more post I guess^^
I was never a big fan of actual music, because everything I heard at friends and in radio/tv was so until I heard Ringo
