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 7.7 02. Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics - Various Artists
This is the first holiday album I listen to each year!
270 8.4 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."
5 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.
10 8.2 010. 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.
290 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 7.3 017. 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.
