1. The Beatles 1 - The Beatles
How can any "best of" list not include the Beatles? My favorite is "Help!"

People who added this item 9  Average listal rating (4 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating
2. Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics - Various Artists
This is the first holiday album I listen to each year!

People who added this item 272  Average listal rating (184 ratings) 8.5  IMDB Rating
3. 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.

People who added this item 34  Average listal rating (19 ratings) 8.4  IMDB Rating
4. Escapology - Canadian Version (Different Tra... - Robbie Williams
Robbie grows up!

People who added this item 6  Average listal rating (4 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating
5. 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."

6. Shadowland by K. D. Lang (1990) - K.D. Lang
Old school country ballads by country's biggest living voice. Perfection.

People who added this item 9  Average listal rating (5 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
7. Run Lola Run: Original Motion Picture Soundt... - Various Artists, Franka Potente
Good movie, but even better soundtrack!

People who added this item 10  Average listal rating (8 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating
8. 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.

People who added this item 20  Average listal rating (11 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
9. 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.

People who added this item 9  Average listal rating (8 ratings) 8.3  IMDB Rating
10. Pearl: Remastered - Janis Joplin
Ah, Janis - so much energy, gone too soon.

People who added this item 18  Average listal rating (8 ratings) 9.1  IMDB Rating
11. 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.

People who added this item 5  Average listal rating (3 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
12. 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.

People who added this item 291  Average listal rating (184 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
13. 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.

People who added this item 39  Average listal rating (22 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating
14. 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.

People who added this item 14  Average listal rating (9 ratings) 8.7  IMDB Rating
15. The Legend - Johnny Cash
Again, how can any list not include the man in black?

People who added this item 70  Average listal rating (42 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating
16. 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.

People who added this item 46  Average listal rating (16 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating
17. 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!

People who added this item 24  Average listal rating (11 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating
18. Hedwig and the Angry Inch - Original Soundtrack
It's loud. It's rauncy. It's funny.
It's rock-n-roll.


 

Here's a list of my 20 favorite songs. You'll notice that there are only 18 songs listed. That's because 2 of my favorite's didn't appear in the websites database. Those two albums would be:

Abort, by Tribe. This is early 90's rock perfection.

Singles, Alison Moyet. A superb collection of all of her "hits" (I've never known her to have a stateside "hit", but almost all of the songs on here are synthesized greatness).

Confessions is the bomb. One of the best albums made in the past 15 years.
