    So I was thinking on my subway ride home today...what albums will you always come back to? Either because they defined a certain period in your life or they're just really, really good.

    This is going to look like a "Desert Island Discs," so I'll stick to ten.

    Aphex Twin, "Drukqs"
    The Wedding Present, "George Best"
    The Smiths, "Hatful of Hollow"
    Kerbdog, "Kerbdog"
    Napalm Death, "Fear, Emtiness, Despair"
    Squarepusher, "Go Plastic"
    Jimi Hendrix, "Axis: Bold as Love"
    Will Haven, "Carpe Diem"
    John B, "Trance and Bass"

    and as much as I hate to admit it

    Pearl Jam, "Ten"

    New Miserable Experience -- the Gin Blossoms. Musically, I am so lame, but it was the soundtrack to a defining summer. "Hey Jealousy" always makes my pulse speed up a hair, and I can smell, hear, and feel a time past. "Tell me do you think it'd be allright if I could just crash here tonight as you can see I'm in no shape for driving and anyway I've got not place to go." "You can trust me not to think and not to sleep around and if you don't expect to much from me you might not be let down" But, with prescience, "The past is gone but something might be found to take its place." Regards, Huntsman

    That was going to be the very top of my list as well.

    For me it's:

    Sun Kil Moon - Ghosts of the Great Highway
    Enon - High Society
    The Flaming Lips - The Soft Bulletin
    Animal Collective - Here Comes the Indian
    Joanna Newsom - The Milk-Eyed Mender
    Pixies - Doolittle
    Screaming Trees - Sweet Oblivion
    Bob Dylan - Blonde on Blonde
    The Real Kids - their black album

    There are tons more I'm sure that I just can't recall off the top of my head.

    The first two albums I ever bought - Green Day 'Dookie' and Offspring 'Smash', Way back in 4th or 5th grade.

    Actually I had an Ace of Bass cassette back in 3rd or 4th grade, but that doesn't count [​IMG] .

    First of all I listen to music all day and have for most of my 4+ decades on the planet. So any list like this leaves out more than it includes. I was thinking more about recordings I've bought more that one copy of or have bought in several different formats or leave in the car all the time. In no particular order.

    Bill Evans Live at the Village Vangaurd
    Bill Evans Tony Bennet 1st record
    Frank Sinatra Songs for Swingin Lovers
    Yes Close to the Edge
    Genesis Foxtrot
    King Crimson Red
    Queen Night at the Opera
    Verdi's Requiem (the one with Pavorotti)
    Mahler Das Leid Von Der Erde (Horenstien 1972 Descant)
    Springsteen Born to Run
    Earth Wind and Fire That's the Way of The World
    Sibelius Violin Concerto (solerno-sonnenburg)
    Radiohead OK Computer
    The Meters Anthology
    Grateful Dead American Beauty
    Pick a Beetles record
    Bob Marley Burnin
