I saw a post on IGN for people to say their favorite album of all time and I think I should move it here too. 

Mine is a 5 way tie, between Pet Sounds (Beach Boys), Sgt. Pepper (The Beatles, duh), How The West Won (Led Zeppelin), A Quick One (The Who) and Exile on Main St. (Rolling Stones).

I like Take This To Your Grave by Fall Out Boy. Also Pretty. Odd. by Panic! At The Disco along with Revolver or Rubber Soul or Magical Mystery Tour.

Also, Rubberneck by The Toadies is another great one. #2 for sure.

"Hard Attack" by MX-80 Sound is my absolute #1. (I've got FOUR copies of the original '77 vinyl! Plus a cassette and CD.)

Interesting answers so far, revealing everybody's age no doubt.

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967

OH MY GOODNESS I LOVE How the West Was Won.

But I'd have to say my top five are:

  1. Odessey and Oracle (by the Zombies)
  2. The White Album (cough)
  3. Led Zeppelin III (ahem)
  4. The Velvet Underground (and again)
  5. Welcome Back (by John Sebastian)

Honorable Mentions are:

  • If You're Feeling Sinister by Belle & Sebastian
  • Band on the Run
  • The Hurdy Gurdy Man by Donovan (w/Bonus Tracks)
  • Disraeli Gears by Cream
  • No Matter What You Are by Badfinger
  • aaand Magnetic South by Mike Nesmith

(Also The Transformed Man  by the "Shat", but don't tell anybody)

I'm in love, but I'm lazy.

I'm a young guy and I don't have money to buy all the albums I would like! Or room on my iPod to listen to them.

Two of my top ten!

(Well, more like 1 1/2, actually: I prefer ...& Nico and White Light/White Heat)

The VU & Nico  is reeeally good too. The only ones I actually own, though, are Loaded and The Velvet Underground . a-hard-days-night-paul-1

Everyone on this forum has such good taste in music. But then, what would you expect? This is a Beatles forum, after all

EDIT: Oh yeah, I forgot to post my list. Uh, my top 5 not Beatles related albums, in no particular order:

Boston by, uh, Boston

Doolittle by The Pixies

Physical Graffiti by Led Zeppelin

Tommy by The Who

Absolution by Muse

 

I tried to mix it up a bit and not include more than one album by an artist. Honourable mentions (if best of albums can be counted):

Songs for the Deaf by Queens of the Stone Age

Highway 61 Revisited by Bob Dylan

The Sound of the Smiths by The Smiths

Greatest Hits… and More by Reel Big Fish

Well, the Ukraine girls really knock me out  They leave the West behind

They are pretty good, but whatever you do, don't listen to The Resistance. It has a few good songs, but it's mostly crap.

Absolution is a good place to start, especially Hysteria.

My favorite album of all time is "Remain in Light" by Talking Heads. I've never compiled a Top 10 or even a Top 5 beyond that. I probably would stick the collected works of The Beatles in my second spot. But four more that I love are "My Aim Is True" by Elvis Costello, "Lifes Rich Pageant" by R.E.M., "London Calling" by The Clash and "Big World" by Joe Jackson.

My friend keeps nagging me about Owsley!! They're like "GAAHH listen to 'Be With You'" a-hard-days-night-ringo-14 Guess I need to check it out, then.
