Quoted from jhanley:

Its one of the top selling albums of all time.Get it.

I agree. I've never found the "perfect" album, but Dark Side of the Moon is really high up on the list.

I'll be chilling out and listening to it later tonight.

Best album ever album is king missile - Happy Hour
Detachble Penis, Martin Sorsese, can't argue there.

Their first album was incredible as well. Just saw them in Chicago - they sure didn't play like 25 years had passed.

If you have it then light it up. Best listen would be to have headphones on while lying down staring at the ceiling along with the lights dimmed.

#259 4 years ago

Gunners- Appetite for destruction.
Staind -Breaking the cycle.
Big Pun-Capital punishment.
BlahZay-Blah,blah,blah.
Souls of Mischef-93 till infinity
Red Man-muddy waters.
Gypsy Kings..

I don't know, but alcohol sure as hell didn't make it sound any better.

#261 4 years ago

For classic, I could listen to The Wall over and over.

For more modern Stuff, the first 30 Seconds to Mars album is a masterpiece in my opinion.

Close enough. Its a shame the last album was so crummy. Private Press was decent. Fixed-Income, Walkie-Talkie and Six Days are great tracks.

#265 4 years ago
Quoted from Fresh_Wax:

I wish Doom didn't leave Stones Throw. Him and Madlib together are like PB&J.

But, have you ever listened to dark side of the moon... on weed????

I think you would be hard-pressed to find someone that hasn't.

I'm STILL waiting for that Doom\Ghostface collabo!

Yea Doom And Madlib are amazing. I can remember jamming that album for weeks after it was released. The only reason madvillany left the player in the house, was to go into the car..

Someone stole my copy of it. To me, it made sense and I was okay with it.

For anyone that is unfamiliar with Madvillian:

#270 4 years ago

Sorry to hear it got stolen, I've lost alot of good music that way too... Always missing disc's after a house-party.. I could probably drop box it for a someday. Got a quite a bit of Metal Finger's

I lost my entire book at a house party. Like 300 cds in the late 90's. I went 100% digital after that.

Not necessarily, but it pairs well with Wizard of Oz on mute.

Quoted from Hougie:

For Darkside, I'd say it definitely heightens the experience quite a bit, that has to be how they intended it. The intro alone with the heartbeat clearly suggests it.

My first experience with Darkside - "Oh shit, is that my heart, or is that the music? I'm buggin a little, what are all these cash register sounds, oh shit..... Who is having an orgasm in the background? Ohhhhhhhhhhhh... Now it is Chill."

Great contrast in the intro going between that and Breathe.

Damn, I knew I've heard that dude before..... I have listened to his Dangermouse collaboration "the Mouse and the Mask" about 1 billion times. He has a great voice.

Doom is all over the place with collab work. He's done tracks with Damon Albarn and Gorillaz on Demon Days (Tomorrow has Come), Prefuse 73 (Blacklist), Thom Yorke of Radiohead (Retarded Fren, which is more or less just sampling Jonny's stuff from There Will Be Blood with some Erasur-ish drums).

His lyrics are insane. I'll give you a new found appreciation for Rap music, one of the reasons I like Aesop Rock so much as well. Doom's back story is nuts too.

#276 4 years ago
Quoted from Euchrid:

Yeah, Waits, what a great artist as well. So many great albums!

Gotta agree. 'Franks Wild Years' is just an amazing piece of work.

As for perfect albums, ELO's 'A New World Record' is on my list.

#277 4 years ago

Love most of the music listed so far and many of my top 10 have already been thrown in so I'll add one that I consider to be a perfect album:

Jellyfish - Spilt Milk

Their first album, Bellybutton, was more of a Beatles sound but Spilt Milk is their Queen record. Perfectly produced (Jack Joseph Puig) and mixed power-pop with hilariously fun lyrics. I highly recommend it.

Also didn't see The Orb's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld, which I personally think is to Robitussin what Floyd's DSOTM is to weed but hey, however you like to do it. =) Either way, it's the sort of album you put on because you want to listen closely and do nothing else. Would make a crazy pinball theme too...

Black Sabbath - Heaven and Hell
Dio - Holy Diver

Joe's Garage Act 1 is great. I can do without Acts 2 & 3.

"Crew Slut" always put a smile on my face when I hear it.

#284 4 years ago
Quoted from Code_Blue:

Rainbow - Rising

This was one of my most listened to albums when it came out. It didn't seem like there were too many people even aware of Rainbow at the time. A few more from the same era and genre that were also high on my playlist were-

UFO- Force It
Judas Priest- Sad Wings of Destiny
Blue Oyster Cult- Tyranny and Mutation
Journey- Look into the Future

These may have not contained the most popular songs by these artists, but as a whole they are great complete albums.

#285 4 years ago

Michael Jackson - Thriller
Dr. Dre - The Chronic
Guns 'N' Roses - Appetite for Destruction
The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds

A little late to the post, but here's mine.

Over the past 40 years, the ABB has returned to my top, time and time again.

Included are some pictures I took with the Allman Brothers accompanied by Bonnie Bramlette.
(Yeah, sorry...there was no digital photography...)

I've seen a lot of classic rock bands live. The ABB put on the most kickass, pour-their-heart-out show I've ever seen.

A surprising second was when I saw ELP open for Jethro Tull.

#289 4 years ago

Maybe not perfect, but this is the most creative and artistic album I've heard. Not a bad song in it.

Yeah I love the Priest 70s albums - Sad Wings, Sin after Sin, and Stained Class are all amazing.

I'll check out those UFO and BOC albums

#291 4 years ago

Tool Aenima
Killers Hot Fuss
Pearl Jam Ten
Counting Crows August and Everything After

Quoted from swampfire:

I think Modest Mouse is a great band. I also think Allman's at the Fillmore was a great live album. My musical tastes have changed quite a bit as time goes on, but I also have great respect for the classics and don't mind hearing them now and then.

Sometimes I feel like I'm the opposite of many pinsiders as now I mostly prefer my music new and my games old, not the other way around.

#293 4 years ago
Quoted from Code_Blue:

I threw that Journey album on the list as it is nothing like what they turned into after they got the new singer and went on to sell millions of albums. The one I mentioned is pretty solid.

I grew up on the best 60's and 70's bands. They were great, but I want to live as many lives as possible in my short time here on earth. The older games feel very different with bands from the last 20 years playing in the background.

I'm lucky to have a son who constantly makes me question my "facts" about music, art, sexuality - hell, everything. And I think I'm a great dad to think, "I should listen to him". I know when I turned my dad on to Reggae in the 80's it made me really happy (but I mostly hate Reggae now). He turned me on to Miles Davis, Jim Croce and Cat Stevens. I should call my dad...but I really digress.

#295 4 years ago

I like this one too. It's an anti-materialist manifesto, but it has some good tunes - I love "Society". This album makes me want to run away from home.

My daughter corrected me recently when I was singing the wrong words to a song by the Killers. Ya know, those guys are pretty good too.

Quoted from o-din:

Blue Oyster Cult- Tyranny and Mutation

I had a BOC greatest hits tape in my teens and loved it but I was really mostly in it for the hits - Reaper, Burning, Godzilla, etc. - never listened to the deeper cuts. This past winter I got hooked on the Swedish band Ghost (currently Ghost B.C. in the US due to lawyers) and somewhere in my 2-3 times a day listenings, I realized how much they sound like BOC meets Black Sabbath. Slow, churning minor-key doom metal with beautiful pop harmonies and amazingly well written songs. So to mix it up a bit I started digging into the BOC back catalogue and was very pleasantly surprised. Ended up listening to a bunch of their albums on repeat. I love when a band I never really 'got' before suddenly clicks.

Quoted from swampfire:

Now THIS I'm very curious to hear. I loved the last album and was pretty fond of all of them but didn't realize this was coming. Shame Johnny Marr bailed... I've been a huge Smiths fan since the first time I heard The Queen is Dead and liked Electronic quite a lot too. I had hoped he would be a good fit.

Quoted from swampfire:

Great album and movie, damn if it didn't depress the hell out of me on the first go-round. My high school girlfriend and I were into Steinbeck and stuff like that and often talked about just taking off for anywhere... hitchhiking, hopping trains - you know, stuff that sounds romantic when you're young and have zero ability to assess risk. She once rear ended someone because she was trying to read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance while driving in town. Come to think of it, I'm due for a re-read on that one myself.

Quoted from emkay:

I started digging into the BOC back catalogue and was very pleasantly surprised.

I heard a lot of early boc on an underground station that played a lot of obscure music from a large variety of bands that other stations wouldn't play. They changed format a few times since coming online in the late 60s. I had to bend my antenna to make it come in. They dabbled in punk, reggae and new wave for a few years and I took all that in. Saw some great shows. Then one day I turned it on and they were playing Fade To Black by Metallica. We had come full circle. 105.5 KNAC RIP.
