As far as I can tell, there have been threads here about favourite songs, and favourite musicians, but not about favourite record albums. I checked. It was a strange experience, wandering through the Culture thread graveyard. But I digress, as usual.

What are your favourite albums? I mean the several albums you can listen to over and over again without getting tired of, that remind you of good (or bad) times in your life, that are your musical comfort food? This might not necessarily be the same thing as the albums you consider to be the "best". For example, you might think OK Computer is Radiohead's best album, but still like The Bends more. As I do.

For me, there are eight records that come immediately to mind when I try to think of my favourites:

- They Might Be Giants - Flood (1990)

- Neil Young - Tonight's the Night (1975)

- Radiohead - The Bends (1995)

- Paul Simon - Hearts and Bones (1983)

- Art Bergmann - Crawl With Me (1988)

- The Who - The Who Sell Out (1967)

- Stevie Wonder - Talking Book (1972)

- Robyn Hitchcock - Invisible Hitchcock (1986; compilation of previously recorded tracks)

Artists who might not quite make the list, but who would come close: Beck, Sheryl Crow, and Men Without Hats (multiple albums by each). And I might put Radiohead's OK Computer on the list as well, but if I could only pick one Radiohead album, it'd be The Bends, as mentioned above.

That's weird. I thought I'd gone crazy, I spent about fifteen minutes trying to find a thread I was *sure* I'd seen just a day or two ago on the topic of records you'd want to have on a desert island; then I finally figured out it was YOUR thread, but you'd edited the title AND the content. I'll never get that time back. But at least I'm not crazy.

The Clash - Sandanista
Crass - Best Before 1984

Two double albums that rocked my young world ... 'course when I realize that they are both over twenty years old, my mind boggles.

edit - Adding three more albums that people probably don't have, but should. I'm a huge fan of label compilations, and these three were possibly the most influential on me:
Beggars Banquet - [One Pound 99]One Pound Ninety Nine: A Music Sampler of the State of Things
Alternative Tentacles - Let Them Eat Jellybeans
Crass Records - Bulls**t Detector Two

Sorry about that. I decided to change that thread, and start a new one with a different name and format, because I figured I was boring or scaring people away with my extensive exposition about Paul Simon's album "Hearts and Bones", and about how music can be like the scone or whatever that French pastry is that plays such a pivotal role in A la recherche de temps perdu. And because I started to think the original thread title of "Desert island discs" might be misinterpreted as referring to disc golf, or flying saucers, or chiropractic, or something.

My desert island album is Shakespeare My Butt by The Lowest of the Low.

It reminds me of a certain place (Toronto) at a certain time (mid-1990s). And that’s a good thing.

Something tells me that this thread will end up costing me a lot of money.... But that's OK. Great lists so far - keep 'em coming!

And don't feel confined to the list format either. I originally thought of having a thread where people talked about why they considered particular albums their favourites, so by all means do that if you want to.

It's fun to see other stuff that I would have thought of putting on my list on posts above! I put my most recent (past several months) favourites and then the albums that, if I had them on cassette, would wear out before I got sick of them.

Several artists whose music I like overall, but can't single out any of their albums as being one of my favourites:

- Men without Hats

- Supergrass

- Sheryl Crow

- Beck

- Pulp

- Morrissey (and of course the Smiths)

- The Kinks (I have most of the albums from their first five years or so, except for Lola and Powerman etc., which I think I'll get next)

- the Rolling Stones (1965 to 1969 or maybe 1971)

- geez, who's he gonna mention next? Dylan? The Byrds? The BEATLES, fer chrissakes? No. Don't be deceived by the fact that I've bought four albums by each of them in the last several years. These artists are horribly overrated, and have held rock and roll back from its full potential through the pernicious influence of their incredibly mediocre lyrics and music. I'm only going to Dylan's July concert in Vancouver in order to sit in the balcony and yell "You sold out when you went electric at Monterey!"

I know I'll think of five other musicians / groups immediately after posting this.

Um, dumping on Dylan ain't cool when your "best of" list includes two artists who should probably just give half of their royalty cheques to him for the debt they owe - Beck and Crow.

That said, Lola vs. Powerman is a phenomenal record - best ever about the music industry. For anyone interested in how the business of music operates, there is no more succint description of it than "The Moneygoround".

I'm well aware of Crow and Beck's artistic debts to Dylan -- I was kidding about Dylan, the Beatles, and the Byrds.

I knew one day I'd get in trouble for my refusal to use smiley icons to denote online irony.

Thanks for the tip about Lola etc., Ron and HellofaSandwich. I hear the record store a'callin' me....

Oopsie. I suspected, but I couldn't quite tell. Sorry.

Actually, on the list of life changing albums, I'd have to put the Live at Royal Albert Hall bootleg, particularly, but not exclusively, the electric "judas!" part. It certainly turned this young punk's head back in '78 or thereabouts. One of the most ferocious records ever made.

I love the boss, TN. Actually, one band that I've been listening to a lot lately has been Marah (specifically the album "20,000 Streets Under The Sky") -- they sound A LOT like a cross between Springsteen and Paul Westerberg, and they have a lot of character-study songs. They really do worship at the altar of the boss, but the music is impeccable and catchy as hell. They even throw in some doo-wop influence. Cool as hell.

I was also listening to "Who's Next" by The Who today. Awesome, awesome record.

These are CDs I am constantly going back to listen to, and when I do I am always amazed that I like each and every song that plays. I guess I have a poor memory.

Damn, how did I miss this thread?

I could easily crash babble's servers if I tried to list all my favourite albums (my collection's well into the 4 digits). So instead I'll limit myself to my fave album from each decade since the LP was introduced 50 years ago:

The 1950s
The 1960s
The 1970s
The 1980s
The 1990s

(It's too early to say for the 00's yet.)
