Re: Favorite Albums Ever...

Going by my iTunes play counts (which are accurate for the last 10 years or so of my music listening), my top albums are Viva la Vida (Coldplay), X&Y (Coldplay), Fearless (Taylor Swift), Fantasies (Metric) - around 65-ish listens each. After that it gets rather muddled.

Re: Favorite Albums Ever...

I hardly listened to music in my teens, hardly bought any records (yes, records!). But I did like Styx and Side A of Rush's 2112. I guy who knew about music thought that combination was odd, that those were the only albums I had at all. Not sure why, since I wasn't into music enough to know.

Good choice. I nearly put that one down as well. I remember playing the tape so much, it started to wear out.

It's a shame that her later albums never came anywhere close to being as successful.

Re: Favorite Albums Ever...

I find it very interesting how many folks (including myself) have a fairly wide variety of albums (and types of music) on their lists, yet U2's The Joshua Tree still shows up on so many of them (six lists in this thread, so far).

What is it about this particular album that seems to have attracted so many people so strongly?

But yeah, they're one of only two bands that I have everything they did (not counting compilation releases).

And I completely forgot an album... I used to play Concrete Blonde's Bloodletting a lot. A lot a lot. It was probably my favourite album in the early/mid-90s.
