    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

    You've got to check out the send up called 'Bowie" by Flight of the Conchords. It's spot on and also hysterical.

    Do they smoke grass up in space Bowie? Or do they smoke astroturf?? Very philosophical.

    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.

    Which galaxy do us folkses live in?

    LOL! Set phasers on 'FUNKAY".

    Does the cold out in space make your nipples pointy Breaker? Do you use your nipples as telescopic antennae....to transmit date back to earth? I bet you do, you freaky old bas7ard, youuuu.

    Do you have one really freaky sequin space suit, man?
    Or do you have several ch-changes?

    Orbitting Pluto.....pulled in by it's groovitational pull....I'm jamming out with my Mick Jaggernauts.....and they think it's pretty cool, mannn.

    EDIT:
    [I especially like the outtro]
    This album's been in my car on maximum rotation for about 7 months straight.

    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!



    ps: does your name come from mr Richard D. James? :)

    Man, I'm ten yrs older than you hipsters.

    Happiness is eggshaped. Kind of a sad, oblique Stone Roses reference.

    It's awesome and I'm guessing you've seen the show and the Bowie episode which was equally hilarious.

    Wow, I'm surprised none of us old-timers here picked:
    Electric Ladyland/Jimi Hendrix.
    Sticky Fingers, or Exile on Main Street/The Stones.
    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....

  43. Violator by Depeche Mode

    Every single song in that album is quality. Yeah, it's a bit overrated, but that album never fails to excite and entertain. Depeche Mode was before my time, so I missed out on their best concerts.
