    REM released PSA last year, they're still going strong. They're touring in the summer.

    Ok, I think people should list their top ten albums of all time. Did we do this a while ago? I can't remember. Anyway...

    In no particular order, mine are:

    Foo Fighters - The Colour and the Shape
    Damien Rice - O
    Pulp - Different Class
    Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
    DJ Shadow - Endtroducing
    Ash - 1977
    Radiohead - The Bends
    Faithless - Reverence
    Buena Vista Social Club - Buena Vista Social Club
    Ben Folds Five - Whatever and Ever Amen

    If we did, I missed it. I won't try to order them, but...

    The Beatles - Abbey Road
    Radiohead - OK Computer
    Pearl Jam - Ten
    Blur - Blur
    Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti
    Nirvana - In Utero
    Oasis - (What's the Story) Morning Glory
    Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
    REM - Automatic for the People
    Stone Temple Pilots - Purple
    Soundgarden - Superunkown
    White Stripes - White Blood Cells

    I intentionally only listed one from each band, but the Beatles, Radiohead, and Led Zeppelin really have three or four worthy of the list. It's a sad statement about the way music is marketed that albums are so seldom done well. This list is nearly complete, while I could list thousands of songs that could qualify as "favorites".

    Silhouttes-Smile Empty SOul

    Stairway To Heaven-Led Zepplin
    St.Anger- metallica
    Knocking On Heaven's Door: GUNS N ROSES
    Smoke On The Water-Deep Purple

    Slow rocks, my favorite. I don't like noisy stuff, like hardcore, or metal.
    Don't ever ask me about classical music. I can stand it only when I am extremely sleepy.
  10. May 22, 2005 #9
    Fozzy - All That Remains
    The Gathering - Nighttime birds
    Devin Townsend Band - Ocean Machine
    Strapping Young Lad - City
    Mastodon - Leviathan
    Stuck Mojo - Pigwalk
    Steve Vai - Sex and Religion
    Anthrax - Greater of Two Evils
    Corrosion of Conformity - In the Arms of God
    Enya - Watermark

    That's my ten :)
    These are the ones that I've been listening to the most this year so I guess they are my favourites at the moment.
    Pearl Jam and Pink Floyd are awesome :)
    I tried some of Damien Rice's stuff the other day because he was on the new Tori Amos album, but yeah couldn't get into it really

    Anything by Queen or David Gray. Most of Aerosmith's older work. I liked the first albums of Matchbox 20, Counting Crows, and Train, but every successive album gets worse. The only rap I still listen to 2Pac. Chopin's Nocturnes performed by Claudio Arrau or Ivan Moravec and Bach's Cello Suites performed by Pablo Casals. Various oldies and Motown cds I've burned for listening to at work .
