Déjà vu?

If you talk about Caifanes, talk about daddy first: Soda Stereo... (bastard mode= ON)blue-meanieblue-meanieblue-meanieblue-meanieblue-meanie

 

I'm not going to post again my favourite albums (I'm serious: isn't it a déjà vu thread?), but post what I think they're PERFECT albums (nothing left out, nothing unnecessary in):

1. Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars by David Bowie

2. London Calling by The Clash

3. Canción Animal by Soda Stereo

4. The Joshua Tree by U2

5. The Dark side of the Moon by Pink Floyd

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition.

Actually yes, quite deja vu.
 

I'm going to make a list and start getting those albums.

 

*bowing* and yes, Soda is the father and mother of all Latinoamerica bands, but strange enough I never got one of their albums. Maybe because my ex boyfriends were fans and I listened to theirs. But I have tons of favorite songs. The one that makes me and all my coworkers dance, sing, shout and weep is this one.

 

Ladies and Gentleman, Soda Stereo. De Musica Ligera.

I like that list, that Bowie cd is just out there, but then again so was everything he did. Dark Side of the Moon is just off the charts, the sound quality of that album is unbelievable. And London Calling is so cool, they just play so many different types of music that it almost makes it the Clash's version of the White Album.

I guess my favorite non-Beatles cd would be Elton John's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. It's just so beautiful and there are so many different types of music being played on that album. Coming in a close second right now would be Stevie Wonder's Original Musiquarium.

Oh yeah, Mecano! We have a tradition of spending New Year's Eve with friends from Spain. They DVR the celebration from Puerta del Sol, then at midnight our time, we watch it and sing the "cuenta trás" song and do the grape thing. My husband used to have a bunch of Mecano albums on cassette tape, but I don't know what happened to them.

I always feel the same thing!

 

I think that The Unforgettable Fire is "U2's Revolver" and Joshua Tree is their "Sgt. Pepper", as well as Rattle and Hum is  their "White Album"... Hum, wait, too much coincidence...

 

Anyway, I think this way.

I'd say Achtung Baby-Zooropa is their White Album because of their "love-or-hate" quality.... I guess...

Hm. Well, I like most of their "Revolver", half of "Sgt. Pepper" and, uh, "Live at the Hollywood Bowl" I guess; and that's enough U2 for me, thanks!

Yeah I've never really understood the U2 craze. But their fans swear they're just as good as the Beatles.a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

You mean some of their fans, because I can't say that, no way!

U2 is, at least up to Achtung Baby, a great band, and one of my favourites, and Beatles is the best band ever. I think that even R.E.M. (the other that I like) is more consistent.

In all honesty I only own a few U2 cds, the Joshua Tree, War and the Unforgettable Fire, so I don't know all that much about the group. But still I've met some pretty crazy U2 fans over the years.

 A very nice list, that. I have all but number 3 in my CD rack.

Take your number 1 album, along with about a case and a half of beer, and before you know it you will have a nickname - worked for me.

I second Marcelo's recommendation. You can search in Youtube "soda stereo cancion animal album" and find all the tracks.

 

Edit about U2, I'd recommend you All you can't leave behind and How to dismantle an atomic bomb. There some crow pleasers (like Vertigo or Elevation) but some stuff like Kite, Walk On, Miracle Drug is fantastic. Well at least they're fantastic IMHO

Haha holy shit, I've already mentioned MX-80 Sound's "Hard Attack" as my alltime favourite album. That was their 1977 debut. Their first release overall was "Big Hits/Hard Pop From the Hoosiers", a 7-inch 7-song EP released a year earlier. First track on Side Two? "Myonga Von Bontee"!
