5 best cds - beginning to end

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
entire cds w/ quality--none of that 1 or 2 hit wonder bs--thats what file sharings for...
but entire cds?

in no particular order:
1. Vertical Horizon - Everything You Want (these guys have been awesome since they started, but this work uses more electric guitar and is simply incredible)
2. Better than Ezra - Friction, Baby (most mature album from them--longest stay in my car cd changer of any cd i own)
3. Toad the Wet Sprocket - Fear (best of many great albums from them--so much meaning in the lyrics)
4. Jars of Clay - Jars of Clay (talk about putting life in their music...a beautiful creation)
5. Train - Train (great band from the bay area--great feel to every song...their follow up cd is almost as good...which is saying alot)

there are more, but thats what i can think up right now...

what about yers? <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />

Any of U2's CD's from The Unforgettable Fire to All That You Can't Leave Behind. Except Rattle and Hum which has a lot of bad tracks (Love Resuce Me, ugh).

Though, that goes for their studio albums. I haven't heard Hasta La Vista, Baby yet.

Other than that.....

New Order - "Get Ready" wonderful, wonderful CD. Best one to come out in the past 6 months. One of the rare CDs by a band that I like that actually surprised me with its quality.

Brian Eno - "Another Green World" .....the ultimate chill out album. Very organic, unlike many of today's ambient releases.

Brian Eno - "Music For Airports" ......consider it the minimalist "Another Green World". Excellent study music.

Brian Eno "Discreet Music" .....the title track (which takes up almost the entire CD) is the single most beautiful song ever written

1. Jennifer Warrens/Leonard Cohen Famous Blue Raincoat (note: title song is my favorite song ever)
2. Paul Simon - Graceland
3. Hugo Montenegro (Erico Morrone?) The Good the Bad and the Ugly sound track
4. Aphex Twin - Richard D. James Album (note: The quallity of the good songs on this far make up for the few bad songs)
5. Our Lady Peace - Clumsy (note: dont have to like OLP to agree with this. If you like OLP youll love every song on this album)

U2 was my favorite almost 15 years ago when I graduated from high school. Great stuff. Haven't listened to 'em much in the past 10 years, though.

So, here's an old fart's list:

Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
Miles Davis - Birth of the Cool
Miles Davis - Walkin'
Dave Brubeck - Time Out
Horace Silver - Song for my Father

No particular order:

"The Last Temptation of Christ" Soundtrack from Peter Gabriel - Dark, but a great CD.
"Jars of Clay" from Jars of Clay - I have to agree, great album.
"Jagged Little Pill" from Alanis Morrisette - Underappreciated in its time.
"Under The Table and Dreaming" from Dave Matthews Band - I'm speechless.
"Forrest Gump" Soundtrack - THE end-all collection of classic rock!

Pulp- Diffrent Class- one of the best Brit pop albums ever

The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses- the first brit pop album

Public Enemy - It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back- Changed Rap Forever

The Clash -London Calling- Classic Punk

The Ramones - The Ramones - The First Punk Album

De la soul - Three Feet High And Rising - I still remember the first time i heard it. changed the way of how a hip - hop record was made and show what a genuis Prince Paul is.

These are in no order it would be to hard to place them that way they are just too great. And there are so many more, but these are the ones that changed my life and are the ones that i have the best memories with.

And i would like to add one more :

Nirvana- Never Mind - Changed the way the my generation thought about music and opened the door for underground artist. i never really got into this album that much but it has been ten yrs. since it came out and i think it needs to be mentiond for what it did. i think there where some good songs on it. But the impact of the album cannot be denied.

And also just wanted to give a mention to The Strokes giving rock music a much needed kick in the ass just like the Ramones did in the 70's

Cheers

Most U2 albums were good until recently before they went Ultra-Euro-Trash-Look-at-Us-aren't-we-great?
post #14 of 15
David Bowie - Low
Passengers - Original Soundtracks 1
Banco de Gaia - Last Train To Lhasa
Amorphous Androgynous - Tales of Ephidrina
Critters Buggin - Guest

Of course there's many, but I thought I'd toss out a few that no one else will probably mention.

If we're talking about Rock, I'd have to say something like:

1. The White Album (Beatles)
1a. Joshua Tree (U2)
2. Van Halen (the original)
3. Synchronicity (Police)
4. Ten (Pearl Jam)
5. Dark Side of the Moon (Floyd)

If we're talking about Jazz and Jazz derivatives:

1. Kind of Blue (Miles Davis)
2. We Live Here (Pat Matheny)
3. Tutu (Miles Davis)

At least those are the three best I've ever heard. KOB is probably the single best collection of music I've ever heard - of any genre.
