Best album, by your top 10 fave recording artists?
« on: September 23, 2020, 11:17:22 AM »
Ok, here is how this works. You list your top ten fave music artists. Beside their name, you type what you think is that artists finest album. So for example, i might put,

1. U2 - Achtung Baby
2. James - Seven
3. Talking Heads - Remain In Light.
etc etc

I doubt many people will bother, but be fun to see your answers. Besides, im ALWAYS looking for inspiration, to find new music.

Not sure I can come up with a top 10 artist.  After 5, they all start to blend together, ranking wise.  I'm also not very adventurous, so these are rather conventional wisdom type thoughts.

1. U2 - AB
2. Led Zeppelin - 4
3. Rush - Moving Pictures
4. Genesis - Duke
5. Yes - Going For The One

Let's see what this looks like this month...

Houses of the Holy - Led Zeppelin
Abbey Road - the Beatles
Zooropa - U2
The Dreaming - Kate Bush
Superunknown - Soundgarden
Songs In The Key Of Life - Stevie Wonder
Going For The One - Yes
Fumbling Towards Ecstasy - Sarah McLachlan
Grace Under Pressure - Rush
Dark Passion Play - Nightwish

...killing me to leave Bowie, Seal, Alice In Chains, Zola Jesus, Tool and Idlewild out. Maybe a few months from now, one or more of them won't be.
