Quoted from hawknole:

I had that Haunted House album, it got played front to back over and over again one day a year.

You gotta love that Chinese Water Torture.

Surprised that no one has mentioned Bob Segar night moves..sure, only 9 tunes..but all pretty fn good....and the tragically hip road apples..only my fellow Canucks would get this 1..

vid1900 Appreciate your honesty, but welcome to Doucheville. Would be nice if you indicated you felt felt bad about this. You destroyed a collection, dude.

I see my quote, above, did not work.
I was referring to the time you admit to sleeping with a girl, waiting until she was asleep, then stealing five stacks of CDs and selling all but the Pixies 'Doolittle'.
Weak sauce.

Anyhow, I do like this thread, and can get a little more recent than most of the fellas:

1. Interpol "Turn on the Bright Lights";
2. Arcade Fire "Funeral";
3. War on Drugs "Lost in the Dream"; and an oldie but a goodie:
4. REM "Automatic for the People"

She was trying to lift my wallet earlier in the night.

I knew I was going to extract some sort of karma, but I did not know what exactly.

I was hoping she had a newer car that I could take to the chop, but her car was older and the windshield was cracked.

Quoted from vid1900:

For a perfect hard rock album. Black Sabbath's Heaven and Hell.
Sabbath finally got rid of that clown Ozzy, and got the greatest singer in the history of music; Ronnie James Dio.
This allowed Sabbath to create their greatest album.
8 perfect tracks.

» YouTube video

Dio is amazing. Not a single song on that album is better than War Pigs.

JOE WALSH made the PERFECT album for late summer/fall in "But Seriously, Folks..." It's like a warm blanket on a cool day. Brings a tear to my eye just thinking about that album. Excellent addition to this thread.

Also, here's my favorite coffee mug:

Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance. I can't think of a bad song on it. In fact, it should be mandatory listening when you turn 12.

I nominate Odessey and Oracle by the Zombies (released in the USA in 1969), from the same time as Sgt. Pepper's and the same engineer at Apple Studios. The album ranks 100 on Rolling Stone's 500 greatest albums of all time list. Not too shabby.

As the story goes, the album cover artist incorrectly spelled "Odyssey" as "Odessey" and because the band had already disbanded, the album was released absent the correction.

The Zombies are known for three hit songs, to wit: Time Of The Season, She's Not There, and Tell Her No. This album includes Time Of The Season. The other songs on the LP are every bit as good. I especially like A Butcher's Tale and Hung Up On A Dream. The lead singer, Colin Blunstone, possesses a distinctive voice, often described as breathy. His many solo albums are excellent. Some older pinsiders may remember the Zombies keyboardist and songwriter, Rod Argent, who enjoyed solo success of his own with his namesake band.

As a kid in the sixties and seventies, the Zombies were my favorite band. I saw the Zombies at the Borgata Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey about 15 years ago. Colin and Rod still had the mojo after all of these years. Front row!

Mellon Collie is one of the greatest albums of all time IMO, but perhaps not a "perfect" album as not all the tracks are stellar over 2 discs (again my opinion). Would be perfect if all the best tracks were on one disc.

That album lends me to think of Jawbreaker's Dear You that was released around the same time...'95 was a helluva good year for music.

Completely agree. I got into this band purely because of the name (I don't know what I thought - that they were a punk band maybe?) .. what a shocker when I heard "time of the season". What I heard was this ethereal, haunting sound... great vocal harmonies here, in the age of Ben E. King's Stand By Me

Lots of great albums. I'm with vid on Black Sabbath heaven and hell Dio really sent that one over the top. I'll throw one out there for Van Halen's 1984

#339 2 years ago

1984 is a pretty perfect album.

#340 2 years ago

I don't know anything about music in the past 15 years, all that stuff in the first few pages just sounds like noise to me. And I don't know how to put pictures in here.

But, Here's my perfect albums per Vid's criteria :

Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
John Denver - Back Home Again
The Who - Meaty Beaty Big & Bouncy
Frank Zappa - Joes Garage
Tom Petty - Full Moon Fever

Listening to it right now and forgot how much of a hard pass I've always taken on Eddie's keybored intro. No. I get it... "the build up". Still no.

All of the Zombies catalog is great ("I Love You" is the best British Invasion song outside of anything by the fab four), but this album truly delivers. Was lucky enough to see the original (and new) line up a few months ago. Seeing Chris White sing and play bass with Colin and Rod was magical.
