Favourite Records

I don't think we have done one of these lists for a while so I was wondering what everyones top 5 favourite albums are from their collections.


I know a lot of people like the same kind of stuff around here so I'd encourage all you dance and r'n'b fans to list yours as well. :xyx


To kick things off here is what I would consider my top 5 albums:


5. Radiohead - The Bends

4. Manic Street Preachers - The Holy Bible

3. Radiohead - OK Computer

2. U2 - Achtung Baby

1. Oasis - Definitely Maybe


I'll be interested to see what everyone elses favourites are. :)

1: Metallica - Master Of Puppets

2: Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik

3: Rage Against The Machine - Rage AGainst The Machine

4: Pantera - Vulgar Display Of Power

5: KoRn - KoRn


They're just randomly picked, my favourites change all the time, others include Sepulnation by Sepultura, Audioslave's self-titled album and Neon Ballroom by Silverchair.

This is always a good sort of thread.


Tough one, because liking a lot of older music means I have a lot of 'Best Of' type albums, which is maybe not what comes to mind when thinking of classic albums as such. It's also partly about picking different bands because it looks boring to have albums all by the same band. For the record though AC/DC are my favourite band and any top 5 would have to include all of Highway To Hell, Back In Black and Whole Lotta Rosie if it weren't for putting different groups. So:


Without 'Best Of' albums:


1. AC/DC - Highway To Hell

2. Van Halen - Van Halen (the first one)

3. Pantera - Vulgar Display of Power

4. Guns 'n' Roses - Appetite For Destruction

5. Marilyn Manson - Holywood


With them:


1. AC/DC - Highway To Hell

2. Thin Lizzy - Dedication: The Very Best Of Thin Lizzy

3. Status Quo - Whatever You Want: The Very Best Of Status Quo

4. Iron Maiden - The Best Of The Beast

5. Motörhead - Ace Of Spades (I think the one I have is a random compilation but I prefer its continuity to the 2-CD Best Of which I also have)


Other classic albums like The Number Of The Beast and Jailbreak would have been straight in there if I hadn't lost them moving house and not since replaced them, didn't think it was fair to include what I can't fully remember. But there you go.

I don't have an all-time top-five as such but the five albums I'm rotating at the moment are (in no order) :


1) Redman - "Whut? The Album"

2) Doves - "The Last Broadcast"

3) Lord of the Rings BBC Radio play.

4) Nas - "Illmatic"

5) Hamill on Trial - "Ed's not dead ---- Hamill comes alive!"
