Excuse my ignorance, but whose album is the third one on the top?

 

I *love* Tommy! The movie is crazy, but the music there is really good. Do you have Quadrophenia?


It's Animals by Pink Floyd.
 

Yeah, it was a tough choice between Tommy and Quadrophenia.  And I like the movie.  It makes the album a little more understandable, in my opinion.


I think if I had to get the Tommy soundtrack, I'd hunt down the one that came after the movie, and not before (which is what you posted). I mean, there's "Smash the Mirror" performed by Roger Daltrey (and I'm not hating on Roger!) and then there's "Smash the Mirror" by Ann-Margret, and in my mind, I guess Ann Margret is always going to be who I associate this song with. (I saw the movie when I was quite young, so there ya go.) That was an incredible scene in the movie.

Or you know, The Acid Queen, sung by Pete Townshend or Tina Turner.  I would rather hear Tina (though I'm not hating on Pete, either!) And Listening to You which is on the movie soundtrack and not the first album. I love the concept that created the first album, but I think everything sounds so much stronger being electrified and with different artists performing the songs.

I dig that Love album. Here's my favorite right now. I've always wondered what Art is doing with his mouth, but I suppose I'll never know. He could be smiling, saying something, frowning, or making any of the Beatles smiley faces.

I have this one in my CD rack - I'll have to break it out tonight.

That's basically just condensing my CD into 1, but It still hits the highlights.

It wasn't until recently did I start listening to albums in full. I'm a lazy person when it comes to this. But I do have a couple:

 

The Beatles (White Album)

Abbey Road

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars- David Bowie

The Dark Side of the Moon- Pink Floyd (phenomenal album)

Houses of the Holy- Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin IV- Led Zeppelin

The Doors- The Doors

Thriller- Michael Jackson

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy- Kanye West

Plastic Ono Band

All Things Must Pass

Incredibad- The Lonely Island (seriously just a good album to laugh along with)

 

I think that's it.

You just reminded me of how much I've been listening to Plastic Ono Band recently, so I guess that would be my favorite right now. There are just some incredible songs on that album, Working Class Hero, Look At Me, God, Mother, I Found Out. Isolation might be my favorite song of all time. I think I like songs better than albums though, I've always felt that some songs get overrated just because they are on a great album, like a few off of Pepper. But occasionally you'll run into an album that just blows your mind, like this one for me.

Recently I"ve been listening to this album lately:

Not quite sure why either, but it is a very good album and his covers of some of those classic songs are great. (Namely Cry Me A River on this one) I've also been listening to a lot of musical numbers too.

If I have to discount the Beatles and John (and George, who would otherwise come in for them), I would add The Holy Bible (Manic Street Preachers), When I Was Born For The Seventh Time (Cornershop), Diamond Dogs (David Bowie) and American Idiot (Green Day). Honourable mentions to Highway 61 Revisited (Bob Dylan), [What's The Story] Morning Glory (Oasis), Are You Experienced? (Jimi Hendrix Experience), and Them Crooked Vultures (Them Crooked Vultures).
