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).

5. Björk- Vespertine:
Every song on Vespertine is like a whisper. Introverted, delicate, and ethereal, the album plays as if Björk is sitting next to you, quietly singing her deepest emotions into your ear. As a work of art, Vespertine is perfectly composed. Björk keeps herself hidden, but, with subtle power, reveals the firestorm at the center of every song.
Tracks: Hidden Place, Cocoon, It's Not Up To You, Pagan Poetry, Aurora, Heirloom, Unison

4. The Beatles- Abbey Road:
Abbey Road was the last album that the Beatles recorded, so they had finished all their revolutionizing and history-making and what-not by this point. Abbey Road is just really, really good. A magnificent final project for the most important rock band ever.
Tracks: All of them!

3. Garbage- Version 2.0:
Every single song could be a single. The entire album is just so satisfying to listen to without ever being typical. Garbage stuck to their trademark obsessively meticulate production style, and created an album that was, simply, perfectly produced. Every song is so rich, filled with layer upon layer of sound, addictive beats, witty, biting lyrics, and, of course, Shirley Manson's undeniable presence.
Tracks: Temptation Waits, I Think I'm Paranoid, Special, Push It, The Trick Is To Keep Breathing, Wicked Ways, You look So Fine

2. Neutral Milk Hotel- In the Aeroplane Over the Sea:
Jeff Mangum is probably the best lyricist ever. The written verses for this album stand as art on their own, but with the simple, emotionally rife instrumentals and Jeff Mangum's audibly pained voice, In the Aeroplane Over the Sea leaves you almost uncomfortably moved. If only we could figure out what it all meant.
Tracks: You need to listen to all of them in order.

1. Kate Bush- Hounds of Love:
Far and away the greatest album of all time. Everything in Hounds of Love is perfectly done, perfectly placed, perfectly produced. The first five songs are some of the best straight-up pop songs ever released, but the last seven songs- forming a mini concept album called "The Ninth Wave"- form the pinnacle of Kate Bush's career, and probably the pinnacle of rock music.
Tracks: ALL!

Well, I am kind of getting into actual good music at the moment, so my expertise is limited so far, but here are some of my favourite albums...

5. Metric - Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?
Incredible indie album, great vocals, great lyrics, and beautiful melodies. Everything you could want out of an CD. Definitely my favourite Metric album, I find myself listening to it over, and over.
Favourite songs... Hustle Rose, IOU, Dead Disco, Love is a Place, The List

4. Broken Social Scene - You Forgot it In People
Indie collaboritive to perfection, I don't know about their other albums as much, but this one was too good. You can't go wrong with it.
Favourite songs...Lover's Spit, Anthems for a Seventeen-Year-Old Girl, Cause=Time, KC Accidental

3. Stars - Heart
Great canadian indie band (again indie, yes I know), their vocals accent each other's perfectly, with the male's vs. females in most songs. I also love their other CD Set Yourself On Fire, so the choice was tough between these two. Definitely a must-listen.
Favourite songs...Elevator Love Letter, Look Up, Don't Be Afraid to Sing

2. The Decemberists - Picaresque
My new favourite (well, almost favourite) band, his voice is so good, with its flaws it works. Their new album is great too, "The Crane Wife", but this one had more substance to it I think. These songs have so many different instruments, and piercing lyrics (not as in screamo, but just really great lyrics). A lot of acoustic guitar and stuff.
Favourite songs...Engine Driver, On the Bus Mall, Of Angels and Angles, Sixteen Military Wives

1. Death Cab for Cutie - Transatlanticism
Okay, I know they may have seemed to sold out by going with a big record company, but they are still amazing musicians, and this CD gets me everytime. Which is a lot, because I listen to it all the time! They are definitely my favourite band. His voice is my favourite male vocal of all time, and their lyrics, stunning.
Favourite songs...Transatlanticism, The New Year, Tiny Vessels, We Looked Like Giants, Title and Registration

My other favourite albums that I didn't have room to mention...
Asobi Seksu - Citrus
Sufjan Stevens - Illinoise and Greeting From Michigan
Bloc Party - Silent Alarm
Alexi Murdoch - Four Songs
Belle and Sebastien - If You're Feeling Sinister

Dec 15th, 2006, 04:28 AM
kinda odd i listen to this

5. Queensryche - Operation: Mindcrime
Probably the most underrated prog rock album ever, there's a story behind it, you should get the whole album to understand, it's pretty damn good
Favorite Songs: Eyes Of A Stranger, Revolution Calling, and Spreading the Disease

4. Rush - Moving Pictures
A great album, just lacking in quantity. Shows the great technical skills of the band especially drummer Neil Peart and Bassist/Keyboard Geddy Lee
Favorite Songs: YYZ, Limelight, and Tom Sawyer:worship:

3. Black Sabbath - Paranoid
Great Album, as it says on amazon it was Sabbath's "Breakthrough Album" it includes one of the most famous guitar riffs of all time.
Favorite Songs: Iron Man, War Pigs, Paranoid, and Electric Funeral

2. Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin IV
What else can be said, great album, great technical skills and the greatest song ever IMHO
Favorite Songs: Stairway To Heaven, Black Dog, and Rock & Roll

Numero Uno
1. Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon
This is what an album is supposed to sound like IMO, great lyrics, great technical skills (again) and has the coolest album cover ever
Favorite Songs: Time, Money, and Brain Damage/Eclipse

Dec 15th, 2006, 04:42 AM
Alanis Morissette - Jagged Little Pill: Need I say more? It's the largest solo female artist debut ever in the US. She's pissed off, and a bit crazy, and that's why we love her.
Standout Tracks: You Learn, You Oughta Know, Maryjane, Ironic, Not The Doctor

TLC - Fanmail : One of the greatest female groups of all time, and IMO this is their best album. Not a single song on here I didn't like, and many that I loved. I think this might have been their last album too before Lisa's accident (correct me if I'm wrong).
Standout tracks: No Scrubs, Unpretty, Fanmail, Lovesick, So Good at Being Bad

Northern State - All City: First full-length album from little known band creating some great music. Female rap/hip-hop group singing about real issues and dodging the shallowness and gangster-style rap prevalent today.
Standout Tracks: Girl For All Seasons, Think Twice, Don't Look Down, Speaking For Me

Moloko - Things to Make and Do: Just recently started listening to her, but WOW is she amazing. Just picked this record since I had to pick one, and it does contain one of my most favorite songs. Crazy, British, Indefinable.
Standout Tracks: Absent Minded Friends, Pure Pleasure Seeker, Indigo, Time is Now, Sing it Back

Alanis Morissette - Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie: Yes, this is the second Alanis album. Deal with it. As the follow-up to her record-breaking debut, many fans saw this album as a disappointment - mostly because it wasn't angry anymore. It *did* sell less than JLP but was still a very successful album. Even without her anger, this is still pure Alanis, and pure gold.
Standout Tracks: Thank U, Would Not Come, Front Row, Unsent, Sympathetic Character

:rolleyes: If you want the best albums of "all time", you don't ask an audience who on average has only been alive 20 years, and listening to music for 5.



Here is time.com's recently published list (notably going back to the 1950's).

http://www.time.com/time/2006/100albums/index.html

Here is the Rolling Stone list (top 500)

with a Wikipedia article containing a lot of detailed info.

Of course, if you want input on new stuff people like, that is great; ask for it that way! Just don't be the classic myopic teenager who thinks anything that happened before his consciousness formed is unimportant.

4. Parallel Lines by Blondie

3. Kings Of The Wild Frontier by Adam & The Ants

2. Revolver by The Beatles

1. Songs In The Key Of Life by Stevie Wonder

I could put "Gold and Platinuim" by Lynyrd Skynyrd and every Led Zep CD in the top 5 as well, but... :shrug:

You completely miss my point. Is that because of reading skill level, or was it on purpose?

As I said in my post, it's great to get the input of the board, as I do frequently on many topics. My point was that this will not result in a list anywhere close to resembling the greatest albums "of all time", and if you look at the albums listed in the posts before mine you will surely see that already reflected. I would draw some parallels for you, but it's probably not worth the effort.

Don't you think it works both ways though? There are many people I know who claim to feel some of the albums listed on those sites are the very best ever, and that's perfectly fine with me. But many of the people who feel that way also fail to give new music a chance, and to acknowledge that many of it is indeed very good and worthy of being considered someone else's 'best'. I find it very patronizing of them to have that attitude towards other people's opinions of what is the best music, yet get so bent out of shape when their 'classics' aren't mentioned.

I'm not familiar with most of those classic albums, I know a number of individual songs though and they are not my taste of music. I don't go out of my way to say that it's 'bad' music though just because it's not my preference. I'm sure to many the lyrics, the vocals, and the instrumentals are excellent, and I completely respect that. Music is about an emotion it brings out of you. Some people enjoy music that is angry, some like sad music, some like happy music. If someone likes Weird Al Yankovic albums and feels they are the greatest albums ever made, who is anyone else to call them stupid or wrong for that?

I personally like a lot of pop and dance music, that's what I enjoy most. The majority of music I like is happy and upbeat, and many of those songs have no real lyrical importance to them. They're not political anthems, or groundbreaking confessionals, but who cares? If the music is serving its purpose in what I'm looking for in an album or song (make me laugh, make me cry, make me happy, whatever) then it's entirely worthy of being considered as a best album *in my opinion* whether anyone else agrees or not. Every single list is completely subjective because they are all based on opinion, there is no literal, factual, definitive list to what is the best.

I look at that rolling stone list and on the first page it seems to be a club of a few bands with no one else getting a look in. Lists like this, especially from specific magazines are never objective. A lot less objective than gattering opinions from a variety of diverse sources, i.e here.

Speakin of reading skill (you apparently have none), the thread starter mentionned: "If you have time, please include your favorite tracks and why it's your favorite album." That's right, the poster asked for people personal all-time top 5. It's normal teenagers mention albums of their time.

And besides Randy is right. A lot of people over 30 are systematically dismissing most or all of new music, so they aren't exactly a perfect reference.

And that Rolling Stone list is a joke.

The Crow
Dec 15th, 2006, 01:46 PM
Let me start with some notable albums that just didn't reach my top 5 (at least today ;)): The Tragically Hip - Day for night, Interpol - Turn on the bright lights, Pixies - Doolittle, Nick Cave and the bad seeds - Murder ballads, Concrete Blonde - Recollection. I'm sure I forgot several.

5. Johnny Cash - American IV
Only for the magnificent cover of Nin's Hurt it deserves a spot here. A magnificient album.

4. The Smiths - The queen is dead
The Smiths deserve a place in my top 5 and this one is their best album imo. Some classics like "Bigmouth strikes again", "The boy with the thorn in his side" and "There is a light that never goes out" on that album.

3. The Cure - Bloodflowers
Not one of their most known albums, since it's a fairly recent one. Robert Smith wrote it when he turned 40 and "when there's nothing left to burn" as he says it himself in one of the songs. Not a happy album in other words ;)

2. Alanis Morissette - Jagged little pill
No, don't laugh. Alanis has some awful songs and albums, but this one is a masterpiece in my eyes. Some great songs on there and all songs just blend in really...

1. The Cure - Pornography
The Cure's darkest most depressive album. All songs on that album just form a nice unit, starting with the blasting '100 years' and ending with the psychedelic 'Pornography'. Plus the album starts with the line "Doesn't matter if we all die". How
s that for an opening line? ;)

The Crow
Dec 15th, 2006, 01:53 PM
And that Rolling Stone list is a joke.

Indeed. An Elvis Presley album as one of the best of the 90's? :lol: :lol:

Oh wait my 2 best albums of 2000-2006 are a Cure and a Johnny Cash album :o ;)

My favorites, not necessarily in order except for No 1. And my list is subject change depending on my mood and who's asking the question, etc.

5. Completely Well (B.B. King). From the breakthrough sounds of "The Thrill is Gone" to the dirty-assed bass line in "Bein' Mean" this album captures the modern blues sound that's the roots of almost all modern pop music. B.B. at his peak, IMHO.

4. Pleasure Principle (Gary Numan). If you've ever enjoyed techno, post-disco dance music or anything recorded in the decade from 1980-1980, you owe a huge debt of gratitude to this album. It's really grown on me over the last couple years and actually sounds less dates than many of the synth bands it so heavily influenced.

3. Apostrophe (Frank Zappa). One of his more accessible albums, with lots of great music and lyrics (don't be hopelessly turned off because it contains the novelty hit "Yellow Snow). The title song is one of my all-time personal favorites.

2. Excitable Boy. (Warren Zevon). Dark, cyncial humor from one of my favorite lyricists. Every song is a poem. Zevon penned some great songs later, but never got the formula to work quite as well as it did on this one. I wore out 2 vinyl copies playing it to death. Believe it or not, there was a time when "Werewolves" was fresh, original and funny as hell.

1. London Calling (The Clash). A double album with NO bad songs. Zip. The opening bass riff is one of the greatest clarion calls in socially aware music ever. The Clash were, are and forever shall be the only band that matters.

Expanded list:

If we were to list a top 10, I'd add in Parliament's "Hardcore Jollies," Ian Drury and the Blockheads "New Boots and Panties," "The Beatles" by The Beatles, "Are You Experienced" by Jimmy Hendrix Experience, and "The Specials" by The Specials.

Another Kate fan.

Where did they all come from? She rockz.

Watch this. It's so funny watching her go bonkers with all the kids in the background bored, totally not getting it, wanting Duran Duran or Wham! instead.

Unfortunately the sound isn't very good but Suspended in Gaffa (The Dreaming) is one of her best songs.

i decided to do something different. my list of best albums ever would include a lot of hip hop, r'n'b, dance and dancehall, and also some rock. i decided to stick to just one genre, the one that is not known for great albums. so, here is my list of 10 best dance (& co) albums ever (off top of my head), no particular order. a youtube video included if available, 1 for each album.

prodigy - experience
uk hardcore! jericho, charly, out of space... much better than their later rock influenced stuff :banana:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSQt6D8NsQQ

daft punk - homework

basement jaxx - remedy
what can i say? rendez-vu, u can't stop me, red alert... :worship:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcqOfVj_iuo

massive attack - blue lines
the unfinished sympathy was the most famous song with one of the best videos ever, but safe from harm could easily be the best song on this album :bowdown:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRWQiGKmhoM

portishead - dummy
if you feel down and you think you should kill yourself listen to this album and you will really do it :unsure:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEyg_SzDKTo
an amateur video :eek:

björk - debut
violently happy alone is enough to make this her best album :drool:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GyCDgYV2ky4

reprazent - new forms
ironically, the best jungle album came out when drum'n'bass in clubs started turning into a sort of electronic new metal (and accordingly being crap). but this is great :worship:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vcjh1BnLQIc

the avalanches - since i left you
they say they used samples form over 600 records to make this album :eek:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfAuFAgHpzc

the horsepower productions - in fine style
2 step garage is clearly one of the best dance genres ever, but most albums were too watered down compared to what was played in the clubs. this album was not meant to appeal to mass audience and even though it's not quite at the same level like the best 2 step music, it's very close to it. it is a fine album on its own as well. no videos that i know of, though :o

moloko - things to make and do
it was already mentioned so i will drop it for:

burial - burial
they say london can be as depressing as this :scared: released this year. again, no videos available afaik.

these are not the best moment of dance music by far, mind. dance music is still best if you consume it as singles in a dj set. but i think this music can compete with the best albums out there any time of the day.

OH NO! I forgot Dummy by Portishead!

This can be number 4.5. Such an incredible album. Every song just melts in your mouth, er, ears. Beauty manifested in disk form.

Music taste is all personal. I have great albums (Kind of Blue, What's Going On, etc.) and consider them great. These five are the ones I listen to the most and do something on another level.

5. tie. Doughboys - Happy Accidents (1990)
Super pop, super energy punk/pop. Not the most even album, or even the best by this band. But fuck, the harmonies, the energy, the expermentation but still natural feeling. They just go off. And pissed the punks off who had been hailing them as the next big thing in the genre.
Highlights: Countdown; Sorry, Wrong Number; Every Bit of Nothing.

5. tie. Tricky - Maxinquaye (1995)
Almost opposite of the one its tied with here. Moody, dark, "trip-hop." Martina's singing beautiful mountains and valleys. Tricky's rap/talk/sing thing used syringe filled dark back alleys.
Highlights: Black Steel; Feed Me; Hell Is Around the Corner.

4. The Clash - London Calling (1979)
Nothing needs to be said.
Highlights: Lost in the Supermarket; Hateful; Train In Vain.

3. The Afghan Whigs - Black Love (1996)
Cinematic, dark, and rocking. Like watching a movie of a love falling apart, played by a rock band taking, R&B down the dark, dirty back alleys of punk while being sexy and dangerous without the cliches, and even bringing God and the Devil into it and their roles in love.
The word love has never been sung/shouted with more disdain, regret, and acknowledgment of needing ever as it is in the song Bulletproof.
Highlights: Crime Scene Pt. 1; Honky's Ladder; Summer's Kiss; Faded.

2. Husker Du - New Day Rising (1985)
How an album called New Day Risng can sound like an angry, chaotic, downward spiral into depression and self-loathing and yet still feeling like it is a new day rising, I have no idea.
This band came flying out of the early 1980's American hardcore DIY punk scene and changed music. These guys are the touchstone for grunge, punk/pop, emo, indie rock, and so much more. And Bob Mould is one of the greatest guitarists ever.
Highlights: I Apologize; Celebrated Summer; 59 Times The Pain; Terms of Psychic Warfare.

1. The Replacements - Tim (1985)
I can't seem to find the right words, so this is from some article about the band:Not so long ago, before its dissolution into the vacuous terminology of style and fashion, "Generation X" was the perfectly ambiguous description of a microgeneration that could never clearly explain its angst nor define its aspirations. The Replacements didn't simply occupy that murky world, they embodied it.
I will say this Bastards of Young has the greatest music video ever. I saw it when I was eight and will never forget it's impression. And the last three songs is the greatest ending to an album ever. The goosebumps happen every time.
Highlights: Hold My Life; Bastards of Young; Left of the Dial; Here Comes A Regular.

Indeed, a GREAT album as well. I recently rediscovered this album after not having heard it for a couple of years.

Ok, it's not technically in order cos my taste is changing all the time but here's a list :)

Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes - Aaaaaah there is little to say about this album other than it's amazing on all levels :yeah: I adore this album, particularly the tracks Crucify, Girl, Silent All These Years, Precious Things, Winter...oh in fact just have them all down as amazing tracks cos I seriously adore this album :worship: Such amazing piano skill too :inlove:

Kate Bush - Hounds of Love - People have spoken about this album before so I'm not going to add much other than it's worth getting this album if only to listen to Runnning Up That Hill, Cloudbusting (probably my fav Kate song) and "The Ninth Wave" :cool: Stunning :cool:

The Beatles - Revolver/White Album - I cannot decide between Revolver and the White Album so I'm putting them both down although in my book any/all Beatles album are worth buying :yeah:

Madonna - The Immaculate Collection - yes it's a greatest hits collection but in my opinion it's probably one of the best greatest hits collection ever produced :bounce: Amazing cd with all the best "older" hits by Madge, love, love, love, this album :yeah:

Tori Amos - Under The Pink/Boys For Pele/From The Chorigirl Hotel/Scarlet's Walk - basically I'm saying pretty much any Tori album is worth buying cos it rockz! :yeah: There are so many songs I literally adore on these albums that I simply can't decide between them all, of particular interest if you were jsut going to go for a few tracks would be:
- all of Under The Pink
- Caught A Lite Sneeze
- Spark, Raspberry Swirl, Iieee, She's Your Cocaine...
- Amber Waves, A Sorta Fairytale, Crazy, Pancake, Another Girl's Paradise

And just because I can't stick to 5 albums, some others I love:
Any of The Beatles
Goldfrapp - Supernature
Imogen Heap - Speak For Yourself
Regina Spektor - Soviet Kitsch
Any Kate Bush or Tori Amos - they all amazing in their own way in my opinion ;)
Michael Jackson - Bad & Dangerous - love these albums
Madonna - Confessions - great pop :)
Sufjan Stevens - Illinoise

I'm sure there are more but I can't be bothered to think of more :lol:

Some nice suggestions here! :yeah:

I find it difficult to choose my top 5....but here is something like my current top 5....

1. Kate Bush - Hounds of Love (Absolute. Genius. Personified! I could pick her albums The Dreaming and The Red Shoes too....and The Sensual World...argh she's just too good!)

2. Rufus Wainwright - Want 2 (Difficult again to pick out a favourite Rufus album but I think this currently just shades it. Beautiful. But if you're new to Rufus you might want to try Poses as a starter...)

3. Arcade Fire - Funeral (Excellent, excellent album! Textured and different)

4. Jeff Buckley - Grace (Not much to say about the legendary Jeff, only he was a superb talent, with an amazing vocal range. Awesome album) :sad:

5. Sufjan Stevens - Illinois (Haunting, beautiful music....with banjos....I don't know how he does it but it's captivating listening!)

Now I can't believe I've left out:

Jim Noir, Joanna Newsom, Smog, Sigur Ros, Daft Punk, Goldfrapp, The Decemberists, Broken Social Scene, Patrick Wolf, Martha Wainwright, Regina Spektor, Bjork, Air, My Bloody Valentine, Animal Collective, Belle & Sebastian, Neutral Milk Hotel, Blondie, Beck....

The list is endless!

1. Darkside of the Moon, Pink Floyd: I was barely out of diapers when this was released yet it's one of the most extraordinary work of music I have heard. It's one of those CD's you blast LOUDLY while taken a long road trip and you just want to escape.

It of course has it's nutty moments like sudden bursts of laughter in between cresendos. Still though, definitely one of my all time faves.

2. I Got Them Ol Kosmic Blues Again, Mama, Janis Joplin: Again, incredible music before my time. Janis Joplin could practically outsing any blues singer out there. Her voice was amazing. Love songs like Maybe, Work Me Lord and To Love Somebody. Again one of those great Cd's you listen to when you want to escape.

3. Life's Too Good, The Sugarcubes: I remember when I first heard Birthday( a song often debated about molestation) on KROQ that I was instantly drawn to Bjork and her band. Get past all the heavy Icelandic accents and the music and sometimes controversial subject matter is fucking glorious. Sick For Toys still trips me out after 20 years and I LOVE LOVE LOVE F***ing In Rhythm and Sorrow.

4. Jagged Little Pill, Alannis Morrisette: This came out during a rough break up for me 11 years ago. I listened to it so much I think I went through three tape cassettes. I still blast You Oughta Know on the radio.

5. Fional Apple, Tidal: I love all of her work but I still love this one probably the most. So many great songs and my special favorites are Never Is A Promise, Slow Like Honey and the Beatles influenced Carrion. Finona pretty much took over for me where Alanis left off after Jagged.

Honorable mentions: from the choirgirl hotel, Tori Amos; Ray of Light, Madonna; and Throwing Copper, Live.

Not in any particular order and couldn't limit myself to 5, so I've got 10.

De La Soul is Dead- De La Soul
This was the stand-out album of a golden age for hip-hop, before it became corporatised and "blinged". So many classic goodtime tracks, Ring Ring Ring, A Roller Skating Jam called Saturday, Keepin' the Faith.

Get Used To It- Brand New Heavies
Had you asked me before this year which was the best album from the acid jazz alumni, I would have said Road to Freedom by Young Disciples. But this year's release by the Brand New Heavies takes the acid jazz fundamentals of the late 80s and early 90s, and brings them into a new decade. Plus it also sees the return of the fabulous N'Dea Davenport.

What's Going on- Marvin Gaye
This album, along with Stevie Wonder's Songs in the Key of Life, and Michael Jackson's Off the Wall, are for me the three defining soul albums from three of the very best American soul legends.

Debut- Bjork
I have often agonised over whether I like Debut or Post better. Debut edges Post for it's perfect pop moments, encapuslated by Human Behaviour, Venus as a Boy, Violently Happy, Big Time Sensuality, and More to Life. Unfortunately I lost interest in Bjork after Homeogenic.

Club Classics vol.1- Soul II Soul
This album perfectly captured the early morning acid house glow of the time, and practically launched a new musical genre. Who doesn't get goosebumps from hearing Caron Wheeler sing Back to Life and Keep on Moving.

Blue Lines- Massive Attack
Another era defining and genre-breaking album that launched a new musical style. Unfinished Sympathy remains one of the most loved club tracks ever, but the album was so much more. Safe From Harm, and the cover of Be Thankful (for what you've got) also stand out.

Contribution- Mica Paris
Mica Paris is an extremely underrated and underappreciated artist, even in the UK. She has had so many terrific records spread over many albums, but this is her best. A terrific soulful-pop album from a lady with a big voice. South of the River, and Contribution stand out here.

Paradise- Inner City
At one stage, Kevin Saunderson owned the dancefloor. This album brings back so many memories. Who can forget the house classics Big Fun, Good Life, and Do What You Feel, which feature here. The remix album also includes the terrific Whatcha Gonna Do with My Lovin.

Screamadelica- Primal Scream
I know the Stone Roses are widely acknowledged as the top of the Madchester heap, but this album for me is the best album of the era. Loaded, Higher Than the Sun, and Come Together all manage to perfectly capture the feeling of the time.

Behaviour- Pet Shop Boys
In a long and distinguished career, full of pop gems that are both fun and smart, this album stands out as their best. Being Boring is possibly my favourite pop song ever. It's such a multi-dimensional pop tune. Plus you also get Jealousy, So Hard, and How Can You Expect to be Taken Seriously.

Musiq - Juslisen

This is the consummate relationship album, when it came out I was going through alot of the situations with girls at the time, it was like he took the words out of my mouth. The tracks follow a nice progression of relationship issues from budding stages through to real love and touching on the everyday problems between man and woman.

Standout tracks include: "Stopplayin", "Half-Crazy", "Realove", "Previous Cats", and "Solong". There are alot more quality songs and 17 tracks in total, but I had to try and offer the best though it was hard to narrow it down to only 5.

Doggystyle - Snoop Dogg

This album is just smooth, Dr. Dre on the track, Snoop sliding in on the track, a little help from the Dogg Pound, what more could you want?? Snoop was young, hungry and fresh. IMO his best album. So many headbobbers on this one.

Standout tracks include: "Gin and Juice", "Tha Shiznit", "Lodi Dodi" (he's supposed to have freestyled this one), "Murder Was the Case", "Ain't No Fun", "Doggy Dogg World" and "G'z and Hustlas" Everybody's gotta hear the the shit on W Balls, W Balls, W Baaaaaallllllls!!!

Boyz II Men - Cooley High Harmony (LP)

What can I say about this one except if u don't know of this album, u must have lived under a rock in the US or are just too young. This one damn near goes wire to wire with no skips. 4 young dudes singing their hearts out, this album is just suave. Back in the day if u knew these songs, the ladies would flock, even as a YOUNG boy. If you want to hear was harmony is SUPPOSED to be, then listen to this album. Their harmony goes untouched to this day.

Standout tracks include: "Please Don't Go", "Uhh Aah"(this goes on the love making CD), "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye", "In the Still of the Nite", "Motown Philly", "Under Pressure", and "End of the Road" which is perhaps one of the greatest songs ever.

OutKast - Aquemini

It's fitting that this album falls in the middle of OutKast's discography because it sorta falls in between how OutKast sounded when they first came out and how their sound is now, sort of a best of both worlds. It was also sort of a coming out for Big Boi as he started to eclipse Dre (IMO) with his flow as his voice matured.

Standout tracks include: "Return of the 'G'", "Rosa Parks", "Skew it on the Bar-B", "Aquemini", "Da Art of Storytellin' Part 1 and Part 2", SpottieOttie Dopaliscious.

Jay-Z - The Dynasty

I had wrote a nice paragraph about this album, but the board lost it so I'll just say I'll prolly get shit for picking this album over other Jay albums, but I love it.

Standout tracks include: "Change the Game", "Give it to Me", "Streets is Talkin", "This Can't Be Life", "Get Ya Mind Right Mami", "Stick to Da Script" (Money over bitches nigga!), "Guilty Until Proven Innocent", and "Soon You'll Understand"
