Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Cool Choice! It doesn't get a lot of love but it's one of the few albums I don't get sick of.

And now for a list that's completely different.

I chose the 15 albums that are my favorites, not necessarily the 15 that I think are the best. Does that make sense?
Also some albums excluded include some of my favorite songs of all time. I focused on the albums that I liked "overall" the most.

1. Rich Mullins--"Liturgy, Legacy, and a Ragamuffin Band"
2. U2--"The Joshua Tree"
3. Rich Mullins--"The World as Best I Remember It Vol. 1"
4. Caedman's Call--"Share the Well"
5. Tom Petty--"Full Moon Fever"
6. Fernando Ortega--"This Bright Hour"
7. City on a Hill--"Sing Alleuia"
8. Live--"Mental Jewlery"
9. Diana Krall--"All For You: A Tribute to Nat King Cole"
10. Seal--"Best 1991-2004"
11. U2--"Zooropa"
12. Rich Mullins--"The World as Best I Remember It Vol. 2"
13. U2--"Unforgettable Fire"
14. Jars of Clay--"Furthermore: From the Studio, From the Stage"
15. Burlap to Cashmere--"Anybody Out There?"

A rare and amazing feeling is when you put an album in and literally makes you stop. It is totally fresh, and grabs you right away. I had the experience with #1,2,3,4,9, and 14.
