Album. Like a photo album? What's an album?

Kidding. Most folks just download singles from iTunes. Remember 45s and cassingles. Mix tapes off the radio with the DJ's voice over the intro and the out-tro.

Okay, seriously:
London Calling,
Sgt. Pepper's, Revolver,
Black and Blue, December's Children,
Led Zeppelin IV,
The Cult: love,
Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby,
Meat Is Murder by the Smiths,
Radiohead's The Bends,
Pearl Jam 10,
In Utero and Nevermind by Nirvana,
Smashing Pumpkins' Gish and Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Backstreet Boys All-Right!, (kidding)
Flight of the Conchords Season 1 soundtrack,
the second Ben Harper cd,
soundtrack to Pulp Fiction.

But if I had to list one based on volume/frequency, it would be The Joshua Tree, b/c I had it in the walkman back in college, and also a housemate would blast it every morning......and our coach used to play it in the van a lot on the way home from matches.

It could be Metallica Kill em All or Guns & Roses Use your Illusion II ... on cassettes. Now that I am thinking U2's October and The Joshua Tree could be too... but No, I clearly remember being laying on the floor with my headphones and reading Kill em All lyrics over and over again, actually that is how I learned English on the first place.

I can see a lot of love for U2 here. At exactly this time last week I was watching them live in London and man that gig made me pull out The Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby which are both favourites. In fact when we got married we played "One" during the signing of the register.

Back to the topic - for me it's one of four:

Oasis - Definitely Maybe
Radiohead - OK Computer
Stone Roses - Stone Roses
Stone Roses - Second Coming

Which universe do you folkses live in ?

For me it could be The Emperor Concerto by Beethoven. In the old days it could have been Echoes (Meddle - PF).
In the last one year it could be some of the works of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan (religious Qawallis) and the classical works of another Pakistani artist Ustad Fateh Ali Khan.

not much for us going on now... it's no loger 1999 sadly....

but i am currently going on about ecletic choices like Fujiya & Myagi, Vikter Duplaix, Cocorosie, Tinariwen, Rokia Traore, Thievery's latest (Radio Retaliation - not bad), Tosca's "no Hassle" and the last two records by Nightmares on wax, Jazzanova's "all of the things" and the EP "Belle et Fou"... so you see, not just listening to IDM, but also digging on some world music and some minimalist "R&B ish" dowtempo like Vikter and the jazzanova gang...

plus i can seriously advise you dusting old stuff like dj Shadow's debut record, Fila Brazillia and Funky POrcini, Up Buslte and Out's "Blow 'em up"... i am doing that and re-descovering new found pleasures with such records... do it! you will thank me later!

Electric Ladyland/Jimi Hendrix.

Rubber Soul/The Beatles.
Led Zeppelin I.
And no old-timer picked anything from Dylan, Springsteen, or the Who?
Remember what Rolling Stone magazine picked as the #1 album of all-time from the critics years ago? London Calling, by the Clash....

i listened to blackwater park HEAVILY too. Clutch's Robot Hive/ Exodus got some serious play too. but looking back the album i've listened to most is probably A Night At The Opera by Queen. my parents played it a lot when i was a kid and i've always stuck it on from time to time.

I have, indeed, listened to it. It's definitely not on the same level as those first two albums, but it's better than the last few.
