What's a favorite album by any band, name it.  Let's talk music; the idea is you talk about your favorite album by any group, and about that group.  Promote a favorite or an overlooked underrated gem.  Or crow about a record that's hailed.  Whatever.  I'll start. 

THE ROLLING STONES
I've been listening a lot (only in the car unfortunately these days) to a lot of late '70s early '80s ROLLING STONES.  I don't think there's an album by THE STONES that I don't at least like a little, but these days I've been listening a lot to Some Girls and Tattoo You... I had a giftcard for Barnes & Noble and went online as suggested by a friend and though a bit of a pain in the ass, I ordered Emotional Rescue a record I abhorred 30 years ago.  (I also got FUNKADELIC Maggot Brain.)  All that said, my favorite STONES album would have to be Exile On Main Street.  It's somewhere between those late-era STONES records I'd cited and the classic STONES work I mostly love.

The Beatles' "Sgt.Pepper's Lonley Hearts Club Band" is my favorite album by my very favorite group.



This was a masterpiece of lyrics and music....it invoked such visions,both beautiful and intellectual. It was also starting to really demonstrate how the boys were branching out and going separate ways. Distinct differences in style were quite evident here yet it still flowed together to create a full listening experience.....it's wonderful.

Death Proof - Various Artists



Most perfect soundtrack in my opinion. I never get tired listening to it because its full of beautiful, great, touching and cool music.

The Smith version of Baby It's You moves me, and The Love You Save by Joe Tex sends chills down my spine. There are actually songs for every mood on this album and yes, I'm listening to this album while typing this.

Great record; I think Revolver might be their best myself, though I prefer Rubber Soul, but listen to the The Beatles "white album" most often, though my own favorite is Abbey Road...  Wink Thumbup

The Cramps:  "Songs the Lord Taught Us"

The most raw and rockin' Cramps album by far, and definitely an American classic.  This is pure rock and roll.

ALpocalypse- by "Weird Al" Yankovic.

I'm admittedly a huge fan of Al's.  Even would rank him as my all-time favorite musician, which most people balk at.  This is Al's newest album, released this past summer.  Musically, it's his best album in the non-parody tracks.  The parody songs include parodies of Lady Gaga (in one of his best parodies, targeting her directly and her image), a parody of Taylor Swift that takes jibes at TMZ and paparrazi, a parody of T.I.'s "Whatever You Like" which targets the economy, and a parody of Miley Cyrus.

His non-parody songs include a song that somewhat targets the White Stripes, and it's his most absurd song to date, as it's a tribute to the legacy of Charles Nelson Reilly.  He also has Doors member Ray Mazarek on the album, playing keyboards on a song called "Craigslist", which is a Doors-based non-parody, in which Jim Morrison sings about buying stuff and finding love on the website.  Also has a twisted love song, which sees Taylor Hanson of Hanson playng piano on it.  Also has a five minute long Polka Medley of current pop hits, sung in a polka style. 

It's an album I play fairly often, almost as often as I play some of my Beatles and David Bowie records.  It's just been nominated for two Grammy's, and has a chance of winning at least one of those categories.  He's made funny albums in the past, and is a great comedy writer, but this one takes the cake.

DEATH - "Human" (1991)



I've been listening to an awful lot of death metal lately, in particular the band "Death". I feel that "Human" is an absolute work of art, because it pushes the boundaries of death metal extremely far whilst staying firmly within the genre. It's easily the band's best album and the start of their progression into a more accessible form of technical metal. The late Chuck Schuldiner's vocals are more understandable, his lyrics very prophetic and he surpasses himself on the guitar here. The guitar tone has an almost hypnotic quality that weaves through an insane number of stop-start jazz time signatures. "Secret Face" and "Cosmic Sea" are phenomenal tracks.

Must have listened to this a gazillion times in high school.  I think it was the only tape I had in my car for about year too.  Gilmour has some pretty fantastic guitar solos, most notably on Comfortably Numb and Another Brick in the Wall pt. 2.  I guess the main themes of building and tearing down the wall are pretty easy to relate to.  Especially at that age.  The album has a wonderful ebb and flow to it as it varies between its mellow and heavy parts.

I've always been a little more than a moderate Led Zeppeling fan. I don't worship them, but I like them quite a bit. That's a band where it is extremely difficult to pick a favorite album, there are so many good ones. However, if pressed, I would say that Houses of the Holy represents a high-water mark just a hair or two above everything else in their body of work.



To me this album represented a period of time when Zep had arrived as rock and roll royalty, but were still inspired and completely relevant to that part of the 70's in which it was released. It contains arguably my absolute favorite Zep song, "The Song Remains the Same." Jimmy Page had truly arrived at this point in terms of great guitar production. The aforementioned track is so thick with multiple guitar dubs that, especially when listening on headphones, they seem to practically swirl around each other in very satisfying ways. It's just a hell of a great album from start to finish, with the exception of "D'yer Mak'er," which I've never cared for. But the rest of the album is so solid that it remains my "just barely" favorite in spite of that unfortunate track.

But, alas, it IS Led Zeppelin, so everybody is going to have a different favorite album, and good on them for it. It's pretty difficult to fault anybody for preferring Physical Graffiti, or really any of the first four that preceding Houses.

     Todd Rundgren has been my favorite artist for years, and this is my favorite album by him....



    I love his solo work, and the original Utopia, but RA, the first album of the new Utopia, just seems to best express what Todd is about, and what I love about his music.

     "COMMUNION WITH THE SUN"-I'm a sucker for anthem rock, and this one is like a laser shot up into the night sky, brilliant, coruscuating, potent. I saw them perform this and other songs from the album at the World Series of Rock, Cleveland Municipal Stadium, June, 1977, with this as lead-off-kicked the whole concert into warp.

Small | Large



     "MAGIC DRAGON THEATRE"- Light, fun, but still trippy enough to qualify; great vocals.

Small | Large


     "JEALOUSY"- Okay rocker.

Small | Large


     "ETERNAL LOVE"- Wonderful ballad, showcasing bassist Kasim Sulton's bell-like voice.

Small | Large


     "SUNBURST FINISH"- The band being more than the sum of its parts.

Small | Large


           SIDE TWO

   "HIROSHIMA"-Metal with a conscience.

Small | Large


    "SINGRING AND THE GLASS GUITAR"- Eighteen minutes of "electrified fairy tale",
letting each member show out.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

circus- I was big into Death when I was in high school, saw them a couple of times. I'd kind of fallen off by Human but Leprosy and Spiritual Healing were amazing.
