Re: What are you favourite 10 albums ?

In no particular order and assuming this is non-compilation, non-live and studio LPs by a single artist(?) - also, although I would probably list multiple albums by the one artist, in this case, I'll keep it to one from each:-

Wind and Wuthering - Genesis
The Koln Concert - Keith Jarret
Rush - Moving Pictures
Billy Joel - The Stranger
Ted Hawkins - The Venice Beach Tapes
Bruce Springsteen - The River
Aimee Mann - Whatever
Led Zeppelin - II
Jepp - Jepp
ELO - Out of The Blue
Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

Awesome! Respect to you fr0g! I thought I was alone in thinking this album is something of a classic. I'm still looking for an LP copy but the music is so good that CD will suffice...for now.

I have pretty much everything by Mark lanegan (except the QOTSA (wasn't keen) ), but this album is as close to perfection as is possible. Not a single bad track IMO.

in fact, for that reason this list doesnt really reflect the majority of the music i listen to. i was just trying to remember the albums i can stand to listen to end to end, and these are the closest that sprang to mind.
