Top 5 Albums of All Time
Discuss. I need new/more music to download. If you have time, please include your favorite tracks and why it's your favorite album.
5. Blue October - History For Sale (2003)
--This album is sweeping and immaculate. It has no song that I dislike, although there are true standouts on this album. The one gripe against this album is that I would have changed the order of the songs, but other than that...it's flawless in terms of quality and depth.
Standout Tracks: Ugly Side, Razorblade, Calling You, Inner Glow, Somebody, Amazing, Calling You (acoustic)
4. Radiohead - The Bends (1995)
--Everything about this album is classic. From the sweeping introductory song "Planet Telex" to the slow diminuendo of "Street Spirit," this album is everything I love --- cohesive, innovative, and has no bad songs. They have released some great albums since then --- Ok Computer, Amnesiac, and Hail to the Thief would be in my top 30, but The Bends is the classic, unforgettable album.
Standout Tracks: The Bends, High and Dry, Fake Plastic Trees, My Iron Lung, Black Star, Street Spirit (Fade Out)
3. System of a Down - Toxicity (2001)
--This is the requisite "modern classic" --- I feel like this would be included on lots of people's top 100 list of the millenium or something like that. This album is awesome --- it tackles so many issues and was a big part of me being an angsty, yet privileged teen. No bad songs and it's totally cohesive.
Standout Tracks: Prison Song, Chop Suey, Toxicity, Forest, Psycho, Aerials, ATWA
2. Muse - Origin of Symmetry (2001)
--This is an AWESOME, AWESOME CD. It has this futuristic vibe that you'd have to understand for yourself. It's very epic and I love epic, concept based albums (if it manages to be cohesive). Plus, the videos from this CD is awesome. When Muse first broke through in the states, it was with "Time is Running Out" and while I love that CD and the others, this is the standout classic that will stand the test of time.
Standout Tracks: New Born, Bliss, Hypermusic, Plug in Baby, Citizen Erased, Feeling Good
1. Silverchair - Diorama (2002)
--This CD has been my favorite CD since I first listened to it. It's been over 4 years since its release and I still listen to it at least once a month. It's just a timeless classic that sounds completely different from their other albums. It's another great epic CD that shows the progression of the band over time. Their first CD was pretty horrible, but they made this progression. I hope they release the next one soon, because I can't wait to hear it. But it won't top this one. Pure perfection, although it's a grower.
Standout Tracks: Across the Night, The Greatest View, Without You, World Upon Your Shoulders, One Way Mule, Tuna in the Brine, Too Much of Not Enough, Luv Your Life, My Favourite Thing, The Lever, After All These Years (it's the whole album and it's just THAT GOOD).
