You're the first and only person I've ever seen or heard say anything positive about this disc. Every other single comment I've seen has essentially called it a steaming river of melodramatic post-grunge poo. Whatever, dig it if you like it.

As for my own top 10 albums.

Eric Dolphy - Last Date
Clutch - Blast Tyrant
Jimi Hendrix - Electric Ladyland
Boards of Canada - Geogaddi
Air - Moon Safari
Mogwai - The Hawk is Howling
RHCP - Freaky Styley
Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
Monster Magnet - Superjudge
Stan Getz / Luiz Bonfa - Jazz Samba Encore!

Share What Ya Got - Defiance, Ohio
The strongest emotional connection I've ever had with an album. 'Road Signs' is beautiful.

You're Living All Over Me - Dinosaur Jr.
Made even better with the 'Just Like Heaven' covered added to the end.

Goddamnit - Alkaline Trio
The best breakup album, this band is too often written off as pop-punk garbage.

Freaky Styley - Red Hot Chili Peppers
I just find myself listening to this more than BSSM lately. Really the only Chili Peppers album I've been listening to lately. 'American Ghost Dance' is my jam.

Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not - Arctic Monkeys
Sooo much fun to drive to, which is kinda ironic since it's the one British band on my list haha.

The Lonesome Crowded West - Modest Mouse
They manage to experiment while maintaining the pop hooks. 'Trailer Trash' is so perfect.

Foolish - Superchunk
Superchunk's best album in a catalog with a lot of consistency.

The Body, The Blood, The Machine - The Thermals
The ideal balance of The Thermals's early rawness and recent slickness.

Weezer (Blue Album) - Weezer
'Only in Dreams' is my favorite album-ender.

The Marshall Mathers LP - Eminem
I'm relatively new to hip-hop so I guess this is a noobish pick, but 'Bitch Please II' is so awesome.

sometimes I don't thrill you
sometimes I think I'll kill you
just don't let me fuck up will you
'cause when I need a friend it's still you

"Moving in Stereo" is one of the greatest songs of the 70s. Their second album, Candy-O, is full of a few nice tracks as well. After that, they sort of became difficult to digest.

Anyway, here's my 10.

Rumours - Fleetwood Mac
Indiscreet - Sparks
Avalon - Roxy Music
The Wall - Pink Floyd
Crimes of Passion - Pat Benatar
Can't Buy a Thrill - Steely Dan
The Slider - T. Rex
Crimson & Clover - Tommy James & The Shondells
Voulez Vous - ABBA
The Stranger - Billy Joel
You and I,
We were born to die.

I'm actually gonna have to replace the Clash's S/T with Bad Brains' S/T for the moment, though I should just make a new 10.

I always hate doing this because I feel like I'm leaving something off but i can't help but find the idea intriguing.

1.)Converge - Jane Doe
2.)Nine Inch Nails - Fragile
3.)Mr Gnome - Deliver This Creature
4.)Tool - Aenima
5.)Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
6.)Neurosis - The Eye of Every Storm
7.)The Mars Volta - Frances the Mute
8.)Godspeed You! Black Emperor - lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to the Heavens
9.)Marilyn Manson - Mechanical Animals
10.)Bjork - Homogenic

Honorable mention - Chelsea Wolfe - Apocolypsis: Probably nudges it's way into the middle somewhere
but I just discovered it a couple of months ago and am not sure if it will stand the test of time.

For someone who prides their self on listening to a lot of different and new music my list seems oddly dated and homogenized
