every year the bbc, music networks, magazines and radio stations release a best of all time list. in that spirit i'm hoping you'll share what you think are the 15 greatest albums.

why 15? it's too difficult to pack just 10 and i figured people might get bored or too lazy to hit 20 or above. if you'd like to add a write up on all or some of the albums i'd l#ve to hear why you think they're great. looking forward to reading your responses.

*chuckle*

Great. Now I have something to think about while I cook supper too.

Fifteen huh? (But yet, I don't feel qualified to comment on current music, as I have been stuck in a timewarp, shackled by the ankles to a horde of Freebird screamin', beer burpin' harmonica blowin', former roadie pseudomusicians still waiting for Southern Rock to make a comeback--and yeah, I tell 'em it already did, it's just called Country now. Then they tell me to shut the stuff up.)

heh.

So I talk to my son's friends now.

Oh.

And ya'll.

I would have a very hard time with this one, since there are a very limited number of complete albums I enjoy.  Usually, unfortunately, most albums only have 1 track I like.  Some of the better ones have upwards of 3.  Currently, there's only one album I really like almost the entirety of: 'Flood' by They Might Be Giants.

I can't really put in classical composers, since they didn't write material for albums.  Latter peoples put select selections into albums, but that would be critiquing the selector's selection.

Coincidentally enough, I just read an article in Entertainment Weekly bemoaning the possible death of the classic album as we know it, because of the ipod technology.

I can think of one off the top of my head, but to sit down and come up with 15? That will take some doing...
the one I personally love from start to finish, and I know this will come as a big surprise to everyone, is Purple Rain, by Prince. But, every song is awesome, and it defines a time in my life that was happiness.
there are others though, not just Prince I will have to come back to this.

What are your Top Ten Favorite CDs of 2004?

1: Pink Martini: "Hang On, Little Tomato" (This 12-piece band is killer! They're based right here in Portland, and created in 1994 by Harvard graduate and classically trained pianist Thomas M. Lauderdale to play at political fundraisers for progressive causes such as civil rights, affordable housing, clean water, and public broadcasting.

They are part language lesson, part Hollywood musical, with a lounge music sound that has French jazz overtones as well as some chamber music, Latin and Japanese influences.

The best musical wallpaper I've found yet, with a double dose of enlightenment and optimism!

2: Elliot Smith: "From a Basement on a Hill" (Elliot Smith, sadly, died from a fatal stabbing at age 34 last year. Despite the sadness that has always resonated in his songs, Smith also brings a great warmth to the record in songs like "A Fond Farewell", which leave you feeling Elliot like a lifelong friend you've always had that you truly cry missing.)

3: Brian Wilson: "Smile": Well, many have been waiting long before I was born for this release, and it was well worth it. Brian Wilson at his finest, which may have been recorded now, but sounds just as it would have sounded in 1967.

4: Franz Ferdinand: "Franz Ferdinand": This is one of two releases you'll definitely can't help but smile too listening. Besides the catchy guitar pop hit "Take Me Out", they cover vast musical territory and themes, from "Michael" to "The Dark of the Matinee".

5: Scissor Sisters: "Scissor Sisters": A wonderful eclectic mix of glam rock from the 70s and 80s blended with dance elements and adult alternative...and they're a band from New York! The sexiest sounding album of 2004. Elton John influences chime on the single "Take Your Mama Out" and on the epic album closer "Return to Oz". Believe me, "Lovers in the Backseat" will be your guilty pleasure Ipod track for a while, the venial sin of your playlist!

6: Loretta Lynn: "Van Lear Rose": Let's be honest here, if we knew Loretta Lynn would make a comeback, no one seriously would believe Jack White of the alternative hit duo The White Stripes would make it happen. But this unlikely collaborative effort has given us something special that will not be forgotten, a fresh set of new tracks from your country legend. The best country album in years. "Mr. Leroy Brown" and "High on a Mountain Top" are my wo favorite tracks.

7: The Darkness: "Permission to Land": Some still can't seem to take The Darkness seriously because they are defined under the pop metal genre and, frankly, are just seen as downright silly under the genre. Then again, the loony pants was the aspiring outfit for every rock god of the past. Rock and roll is supposed to be trill, squeal, laugh, spill lipstick. The Darkness bring back the magic of rock and roll through a solid album with some of the catchiest pop rock anthems in recent memory ("I Believe in a Thing Called Love", "Friday Night") and strong rockers ("Love On The Rocks With No Ice") complete with real guitar solos, quirky, hilarious lyrics and everything that made rock and roll what it is today. Behold, the ironic-named light that is breaking all the Korns and Three Days Graces of our times, a light known as The Darkness.)

8: Mindy Smith: "One Moment More" One of the underappreciated soloists of 2004. A fine set of alternative country and folk rock with hearty vocals, from the single
"Come to Jesus" to "Fighting For It All".

9: The Black Mollys: "Overnight Disgrace" If you are a fan of Jason Faulkner, Jellyfish, Big Star, etc. you will undoubtedly love the anthemic sounds of The Black Mollys. Great power chord ruckuses that Saturday morning cartoons are destined to select as theme songs.

10: U2: "How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb": My final pick comes from an all too familiar band. We all know well what U2 has to give, but even if they're all too familiar to you and you can't expect much else from them, U2 continue to give us solid, strong rock and roll. By the way, if you didn't like "Vertigo", believe me when I say that's the worst track on the record. "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own" is the best U2 single I've heard in a long time, as "City of Vlinding Lights" also hits home.

**********Bonus**********

Though I wouldn't exactly consider it an all-new release in 2004, if you haven't heard of Puffy AmiYumi yet, check them out!

This Japanese duo (who now has a hit Cartoon Network animated series) sounds just as good as they do on their cartoon. The brains behind Jellyfish have collaborated with Puffy AmiYumi to craft some of the catchiest, most uplifting, sugar-sweet bubblegum power pop that'll make you want to go out and kiss babies and pet puppies just for fun. I absolutely love them!

Sincerely,
Noah Eaton

Okay let me say this, it's YOUR picks for best albums(so dont worry about new music K just what you like), and you don't have to post it NOW. I realize this would take time, so get cracking lol . It seems daunting but its really not that many. Hope you'll change your minds and give it a try.

Noah thanks there are some interesting albums in there but im still hoping for an 'all-time' list from you. I'll give Brian Wilson's album a try, ive read some great reviews. I gave U2's latest a try, as a big U2 fan i was happy to hear what was their best album 'musically' in years. However i was sorely dissapointed with the lyrics. I think, perhaps, Bono has lost his touch or that Edge is writing again. thanks for the list Franz Ferdinand is another one ive been meaning to listen to so thanks for the reminder.

Ok, here goes (not necessarily in order, just as I think of them...)

1. Pink Floyd- The Wall- okay, so this one is in order, I happen to consider it the best album I've ever heard. Musically and lyrically it's really complex... everything ties together at the end, and very theatrical at times.

2. Patti Smith- Horses- Go Ribaud! Need I say more?

3. Pink Floyd- Wish You Were Here- much more subtle and laid back than the wall, but Wish You Were Here is probably my favorite song of all time.

4. Ani DiFranco- Self Titled album- just her and a guitar, lyrically awesome, and I think she released it when she was like 19... pretty impressive overall (hope you like it liberal!)

5. Bitch and Animal- What's that Smell- Okay, so I admit it's probably technically not fit to be on a best of list, but I have such a soft spot for them... this CD was unfortunately ripped off from my car once upon a time when I had a cd player and forgot to take the face off *sigh* I lost all my best cd's... but listener's beware, if you think DiFranco's liberal, these chicks are really out there, so don't listen to them if you're easily offended.

6. U2- the Joshua Tree- Duh. Really don't need to say much here- I did also like How to Dismantle and Atomic Bomb a lot though, too.

7. Hole- Live through this- Another one lost to some theif... just pure grungy chick rock anger, it's my favorite album to scream along to.

8. Couting Crows- August and everything after- nevermind that I'm sick of hearing the Counting Crows due to my boyfriend constantly playing them... it's a good cd to mope to- trust me on this one.

9. Pixies- Death to the Pixies- Right, it's a best of, not an album, I know. But the pixies are just so much fun, in a weird punk out-there lyrics kind of way...

10. Patti Smith- Trampin- this one just came out about a year or so ago, it's really good, but you have to ahve a tolerance for patti smith in the first place. Everyone I know either loves her or just can't stand her.

11. Well, I ahve to give NIN a good word, but none of their albums (with a possible exception to pretty hate machine) are really solid enough to make a best of. The Fragile has some really strong points (Just Like I Imagined is one of the best songs I've ever heard) and if you ever get really bored, try tracking down some of their old singles. The Closer single is really cool (a two disc single... although I might have an imported version, not sure) and the single for Sin has a cover of a song called Get Down Make Love- I don't know who does the original of it, but anyway, both versions are really cool. Ultimately, I value Trant's ability to manipulate sound into music more than I do his lyrics.

Okay, so I can't really muster any more favorites... I recommend almost any Ani DiFranco (except Educated Guess, which kind of sucked), any Pink Floyd Pre-Roger Waters leaving the band, Patti Smith, The Counting Crows even though I'm sick of them... sorry my list sucks but I'm tired and it's the best I can do right now.

Oh, I understand, dearest friend. I just have too many CDS I love and it'll take me a long time before I draft my final Top 10 of all time list! So I decided to get 2004 off my chest!



There are particular artists I like more than any other: The Doors, Jefferson Airplane (whatever happened to them on classic radio?), The Who, Bob Marley, The Kinks, early U2, early R.E.M, etc.



I'll come up with something.

Sincerely,
Noah Eaton

Hush, that's a GREAT list indeed!



"August and Everything After" is probably the current crown jewel of the soundtrack of my life. By tht, I mean, the album with the most sentimental value to me because I've been able to relate to Adam Duritz forever. When I was going through my depression stage, Adam Duritz always felt like a brother who whispered in my ear, "I've been there...and we both deserve a little more". "Round Here" never fails to make me cry, and "Murder of One" has always been an anthem to me.

Ani DiFranco is by far the most talented female artist since Joni Mitchell. Her guitar abilities are virtually unmatchable in comparison to other artists to emerge in the past decade. Plus I love her progressive politics in many of her songs, and her unconventionable vocals that are like a cross between the queen of the San Francisco cafe scene and Billie Holiday. I'd say "Little Plastic Castle" is my current favorite album of hers, but "Revealing/Reckoning" was also incredible.

Pink Floyd, absolutely. In fact I think "The Dark Side of the Moon" will most likely be in my final Top 10. Counting Crows and DiFranco; probably not, since there is so much more classic material out there that is even more impressionable, but you definitely have excellent taste!

Sincerely,
Noah Eaton

I thought about this one so long I gave myself a migraine. Then I said to myself, "self, yer being ridiculous. The future of Rock and Roll does not rest on your choices being cutting edge, and y'don't have to apologize for a lack of intellectual forethought for what you post in that there forum."

So I tore up the list of music I had decided made significant differences in the music world, and just decided to go with a list of albums that I listened to so much I had to replace--a few times.

So here it is, my off the top of me head--a SHORT list of albums I wore out:

(in no particular order)

1. Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti
2. Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers
3. Beatles - White Album
4. Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
5. Led Zeppelin - Houses of the Holy
6. Joni Mitchell - Court and Spark
7. Janis Joplin  - Cheap Thrills
8. Cat Stevens - Greatest Hits
9. Elton John - Tumbleweed Connection
10. Fleetwood Mac- Rumours
11. C,S,N, & Y - So Far
12. Bob Dylan - Nashville Skyline
13. Jethro Tull - Thick As a Brick
14. Chicago II
15. Hank Williams - The Collection (that one I am still wearing out too, y'see, when I listen to that one, and I can almost feel my Dad keeping time to the music with his hand resting on my head)

And that's it Raph!



There were other more temporary obsessions (the summer I discovered Foreigner, and Creedence Clear Water shoulda made the list too, and Journey? I'll put that on my "what was I thinking list?)

oooh....there's a new thread for ya'll.



(and next time, ya'll wanna know how old I am just ask--I'll be 44 this summer. )

excellent..rubs hands in mr. burns fashion

this is what i wanted to see

hush fantastic list and im glad to see wish you were here given some respect, the album is overlooked. as for nin i agree that pretty hate machine is his best all around work, but its starting to sound dated and therefore i'd go with downward spiral. it's a masterpiece of sound and it's current rerelease on dolby 5.1 will be spectacular. that said if he reworks pretty then its back on top for me.

Noah.. you know, august and everything is a great album..great choice

K..swoon...i know fans cant stand physical graffiti and here you are listing it up top. it's the first Zep album to get away from the blues and experiment with new sounds and styles..excellent. and the white album? you;ll see what i think on my list..grins. oh and the mention of Queen's night at the opera..stellar..death on two leeeegs..ahem.

Susan great list, my favourite pick. Metallica/ Master of Puppets. That is, to me, their best album. and yes closer is quite a song..er word of caution, dont try playing it really loud at work..shrugs i gots ta be me

cloud 9 again, great choices here. Joshua Tree is such a brilliant album, yet im finding myself torn. on my own list, between it and War for different reasons..nice to see the wall popping up so much. that record spent months, literally, on my turntable, there was no point in taking it off.thanks for sharing

Chris thanks, Kate Bush often gets overlooked or is considered too quirky for some. i think she has a beautiful voice and she happens to be a big influence on some of my favourite artists at the moment. and early Elton, always a great thing.

Josh l#ve your list for it's genre crossing. korn on the same list enya(to name one)..that's awesome. and i completely agree about cash's cover. it's actually, and this is hard to do, sadder than trent's version

JM? l#ved everyone, on behalf of canucks thanks for remebering Rush lol. i also like the inclusion of Use your illusions, overlooked albums. nirvana gets alot of credit for reinspiring modern rock but it think people forget how fresh gun's n roses sound was, breaking through the hairmetal pomp..

awesome. all. thanks for sharing and K? how about yes 90125, or am i the only one that likes that album..but then. god do i l#ve roundabout. if this were a list of favourite songs thats waaaay up there..

oops sorry christopher. you snuck in there while i was replying.

Again great choices. The inclusions of Temple is awesome, im playing with that one on my list. No quarter doesn't get enough respect, it's such a great album, the musicianship on that album is really tight and made for some great spontaneous outbursts by both band and orchestra. and division bell is fantastic, reaffirming there was life after waters and they weren't just a touring band

thanks again all

Top country favorites:

- he's too new to tell but Keith Urban is one talented individual - love all his albums

I don't know the album but a song that should be mentioned -

Cover of the Rolling Stone - Dr Hook

He is so fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose - Jim Elliot
