Albums you'll always come back to? - Page 4

post #46 of 88
^ Doc, it's a beautiful record but to be honest I like his earlier, rougher stuff more.

Harvest is also beautiful, but still has the ragged edges of youthful disillusionment.

I've been meaning to read Shakey, have you read it?

These two are the most important to me and I could listen to each 24/7 until the day I die: Aphex Twin: Selected Ambient Works 85-92 Beach Boys: Pet Sounds Some other albums that will never grow stale: The Beatles "Big 5": Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's, White Album, Abbey Neutral Milk Hotel: In the Aeroplane Over the Sea John Coltrane: A Love Supreme Wilco: Yankee Hotel Foxtrot Radiohead: OK Computer Bowie: Low Miles Davis: Kind of Blue Radiohead: Kid A My Bloody Valentine: Loveless The Velvet Underground & Nico Sufjan Stevens: Illinoise (best album of the decade thus far, by far) *EDIT*: Oh also, it's from October but still: American Primitive Vol. II. It's an album of late 19th - early 20th century folk music compiled by John Fahey before he passed. It's a haunting, 50 song collection and it's probably had the most rotations of any album since I purchased it. Beautiful, beautiful album/history lesson.

No, I haven't. If you do, let me know what you think.

I have a soft spot for "Harvest Moon," and sometimes feel it gets overlooked in his body of work. But I can see your point. I like both his earlier stuff and the more weathered later stuff.

Well, let's see what's in the changer or in the adjacent pile:

Stones, 12 x 5
Modern Lovers
Iggy and the Stooges, Fun House
Robyn Hitchcock, Element of Light
Eno, Before and After Science
Guided By Voices, Mag Earwhig
Some weird thing about black banjo players of the 1930s
Ween, Pure Guava


I like to change the pile every so often and I tend to grab things at random. My collection is large and I often forget I have something until it pops up this way.

Have you been digging in my cds? I believe my copies of these are all missing. Nice choices. You must be an old fart like me. (And Steve B. )

to this day I put Bad Religion's 'I wanna conquer the world' on repeat in the morning when i know a particularly challenging day is ahead.

Started doing that before college exams, and that song has been with me from tape on walkman to CD on discman to MP3 on iPod. See no reason why it wont be with me with whatever technology outmodes my pod.

BR. Good choice. No comment on iPod

Albums that I'll never put away for good no matter how my tastes change would definately be Jeff Buckley's "Grace", some of Oasis's albums (Standing on the Shoulders of Giants, The Masterplan, What's the Story), The Verve (Storm in Heaven)... I've gone through big phases of liking Blues records, different types of Brit rock (Ocean Color Scene, Stereophonics, JJ72, Placebo, Starsailor, Muse etc...), "classic" rock (GnR, The Who, the Pistols etc...) and Hiphop/rap (JayZ, Kanye, Nas, Gangstarr, The Streets, 50...). While I keep actively listening to all of them, sometimes some of them take a major backseat... haven't listened to any of my GnR records in ages. Used to be the biggest fan.

Then I have a pretty huge classical collection, most notably a fairly extensive collection of violin repertoire. No matter how many different soloists I listen to, with new and fresh ideas about how works should be performed, I'm always drawn back to the good old playing of Itzhak Perlman. There are some records which I think define your personality and what inspires you that no matter what changes you go through, you're fundamentally hooked on for life.
