Top 20 Albums List
740 8.2 01. The Beatles 1 - The Beatles
How can any "best of" list not include the Beatles? My favorite is "Help!"
9 8 02. Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics - Various Artists
This is the first holiday album I listen to each year!
272 8.5 03. Are You Experienced? - The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Jimi Hendrix
Ah, I sometimes think I should be a stoner because I really do love 60's stoner music. Alas, I enjoy this album completely sober.
34 8.4 04. Escapology - Canadian Version (Different Tra... - Robbie Williams
Robbie grows up!
6 7 05. A Secret History: the Best of the Divine Com... - The Divine Comedy
I discovered this album about 10 years ago and it is brilliant. I can't get enough of "National Express."
4 8 06. Shadowland by K. D. Lang (1990) - K.D. Lang
Old school country ballads by country's biggest living voice. Perfection.
9 6.8 07. Run Lola Run: Original Motion Picture Soundt... - Various Artists, Franka Potente
Good movie, but even better soundtrack!
10 6.5 08. Ray Guns Are Not Just The Future - the bird and the bee
I have to thank Ellen Degeneres for exposing this quirky group to me. Love Letter to Japan was my favorite song last year.
20 6.8 09. Pretty In Pink - Various Artists
Wow - this is the first 80's album on my list (surprising since my friends make fun of me for my 80's addiction).
This, to me, is the quintessential 80's album.
9 8.3 010. Pearl: Remastered - Janis Joplin
Ah, Janis - so much energy, gone too soon.
18 9.1 011. Ophelia - Natalie Merchant
Natalie Merchant is an amazing songwriter. I have all of her solo stuff, plus everything she did with 10,000 Maniacs. But I could listen to his album in a dark room for hours on end.
5 7.3 012. Neptune City - Nicole Atkins
A more recent discovery (which makes it rare to appear on an all-time favorite list). Such a moody album, though.
291 6.8 013. Confessions on a Dance Floor - Madonna
Albums don't get much more fun than this. It also brings back memories of living on my own for the first time in my life.
39 7.2 014. I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got - Sinead O'Connor
Ahh - another memory album. Whenever I hear songs from this album I'm brought back to working summers at Chef Sigmund's Chowder House on Cape Cod.
14 8.7 015. The Legend - Johnny Cash
Again, how can any list not include the man in black?
70 7.5 016. Last Splash - The Breeders
Another college memory...chock full of quick, quirky, fun songs, this one reminds me of working at Record Town in Copley Place. Good times.
46 7.2 017. Haunted - Poe
if this list wasn't alphabetized by album title, this album would definitely appear toward the top. If you don't have this one, BUY IT!
24 8 018. Hedwig and the Angry Inch - Original Soundtrack
It's loud. It's rauncy. It's funny.
