Normal Your 5 favorite albums [/sad LemonMelon ripoff]

OK, so now we've had...

1. 5 Favorite guitarists
2. 5 Favorite bassists
3. 5 Favorite/Least Favorite rock drummers
4. 5 Favorite singers

So let's round this out with the final piece of the puzzle: 5 favorite albums. It could be anything, any genre. One per artist.


5. Led Zeppelin - Houses Of The Holy


Led Zeppelin at their most experimental. I really don't care what fans say, this is their peak. Robert Plant isn't great on this record vocally, but he sure helped write some great tunes. The opening three alone will melt your mind AND your face.

4. Steely Dan - Aja


Jazz-rock at its very best. This album is a masterpiece. Almost every song is top-notch, and the instrumentation is incredible. I listened to this album for the first time when I was (I think) 10 years old, and it introduced me to great music. A classic.

3. Zooropa


U2's finest, most experimental album (besides Passengers). I will concede, there are one or two songs that aren't up to par, but almost half of these songs are in my top 20 for U2, so that must say something right there. It's just incredible. If you don't like it, listen to it again. Heck, if you do like it, listen to it again!

2. Radiohead - OK Computer


I know this pick is cliche, but I really don't care. This album is by far and away the finest album Radiohead ever recorded, and is the best album of the 90's. No need for iTunes or the skip button, this album is perfect.

1. The Beatles - Abbey Road


The greatest album by the greatest band of all time. The first half shows the Beatles in good form, and the second half is so untouchably awesome that...well...I don't know what to say. It's genius. When three of the Beatles' best songs (You Never Give Me Your Money, She Came In Through The Bathroom Window, The End) are in a medley together, that tells you something. It's the Beatles at their best in the areas of songwriting, musical proficiency, and ambition. Buy it now, please.

Listening to it this very second. Can't wait to own this on cd.

Now, keeping in mind this list of mine changes almost hourly, this is probably a decent representation of what I'm feeling right now. I could probably post entirely different lists every day though...and maybe I will.

For now:

5. Bob Dylan - Blood On The Tracks

4. Radiohead - Kid A

3. Beck - Sea Change

2. U2 - All That You Can't Leave Behind

1. Bruce Springsteen - The Wild, The Innocent, And The E Street Shuffle



Any insight into my current state of mind?

You know, I think it's changing already. I think I'll have to bump Blood on the Tracks up a few spots. Maybe to #3 or #2 position.
