Ringo - Shouso strippu (MM deserves it too, but)
Katatonia - Discouraged ones (this probably really ties with Shouso strippu)
Opeth - Morningrise (I used to have this album on repeat. It made me stay overnight (not go home) a few times at work some years ago.)
Rotting christ - A dead poem (name - Greek band, don't blame me)
Edge of sanity - Crimson (well, it's a 40 minute track'd single, but...)

Necro'd!

The reason for this is actually a good one: if you posted in this thread before, try quoting your old post and see if your list has changed at all. It may be interesting.

Well, I can tell you that Asobi Seksu's Citrus album jumped onto my list. Probably even to the very top. Sure the album sags a tiny bit between Red Sea and Exotic Animal Paradise, but I can't think of a more solid album from beginning to end.

^ I meant the songs in between them: Goodbye, Lions and Tigers, and Nefi+Girly. Those three songs are just very good instead of great or mindblowing.

Necro time.

There are a few ways I can approach this. I can approach from the artistic masterpiece side, but if I consider an album particularly ground breaking, that doesn't mean I listen to it a lot. Plus I have some compilations that I love that this would ignore. I can approach it from the number of plays side, but that ignores some albums I really like but I don't play much. So I decided to approach it from the "comfort foods" side. You know, those albums that I might not listen to a whole lot but I always find myself going back to. Plus like comfort foods, it's not until you're sitting down and eating that you fully realize how much you craved it.

Here are some of my comfort food albums in no order--not all old, some quite recent, but all good. (I'm also leaving out SR/TJ.)

Beatles - Magical Mystery Tour
Beatles - Revolver
Brilliant Green - Terra 2001
Pillows - My Foot
Fujifabric - Fujifabric
Madness - Wonderful
Maná - Amar es Combatir
Yaida Hitomi - Daiya-monde
Puffy - Solo Solo
Cocco - Zansaian
Lily Allen - Allright, Still
John Lennon - Mind Games
George Harrison - All Things Must Pass
Zero 7 - Simple Things
Putumayo Presents: South Pacific Islands
Putumayo Presents: Turkish Groove
Jimmy Cliff (and others) - The Harder They Come soundtrack

01. the brilliant green - Los Angeles
02. Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend
03. Sakanaction - Shinshiro
04. The Hives - Veni Vidi Vicious
05. NICHIKA - NICHIKA
06. Ra Ra Riot - The Rhumb Line
07. Chara - CAROL
08. Vampire Weekend - Contra
09. the brilliant green - THE WINTER ALBUM
10. The Go! Team - Thunder, Lightning, Strike

The first two are the only ones that haven't moved from their spots since I first heard them. Los Angeles has been my favorite album since 2005, while Vampire Weekend's self-titled debut cemented itself at the number two slot about a month after its release. The rest aren't really in order and are likely to change every couple of months (ie: there isn't even a Top 20 for Neon Bible to be in anymore).

Lists are fun!

1. The Smiths - Meat is Murder
2. Shiina Ringo - Muzai Moratorium
3. David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust
4. Malice Mizer - Voyage
5. Chiyo Okumura - Coquettish Bomb

6. Jaurim - Yeoin
7. The Supremes - Gold
8. Namie Amuro - 181920
9. Momoe Yamaguchi - Phoenix Densetsu
10. The Phantom of the Opera - Original Cast Recording

11. Depeche Mode - Violator
12. LUNA SEA - Image
13. Faye Wong - Jang Ai
14. Perfume - GAME
15. Radiohead - OK Computer

16. Joy Division - The Best Of
17. Alizee - Psychédélices
18. Ayumi Hamasaki - LOVEppears
19. Mozart - Requiem (Specifically this recording)
20. Baby V.O.X - Boyish Story

I'm sure I forgot something, but that's a good overview at least. Only one album per artist, or else all of The Smiths and Ringo's album would be there. And I have a couple of best of albums in there, but I treat those ones more like I would a regular album than not so I count them. ^^;
