Default Your favorite albums

Okay, screw the MB favorite albums thread.

Because, it doesn't matter whether five people out of twenty like a specific album or not. What really matters is whether you like an album.

So, here goes. Instead of voting on some arbitrary album Trollheart or somebody else comes up with, simply list the albums you like best. We can always comment on whether we like the album(s) or not, like we would always do at a music forum, but the bottom line is, those are the albums that pop your cherry, so to speak, and if someone else has a problem with that, well, strawberries to them.

Anyway, list as many albums as you want, or as few as you want, as we try to appreciate each others' tastes.


For me, I'm omitting a few Beatles albums as maybe we should honor a one album per artist rule, but otherwise, here is my top ten...

1) Beatles- Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
2) Bob Dylan- Highway 61 Revisited
3) David Bowie- Hunky Dory
4) REM- Murmur
5) Beach Boys- Pet Sounds
6) The Kinks- Something Else
7) Rolling Stones- Let It Bleed
8) Velvet Underground- Velvet Underground and Nico
9) Radiohead- OK Computer
10) Stevie Wonder- Innervisions


Okay, your turn
