    Your All-Time Top 10 Favorite Albums

    Ok, continuing off of the momentum of the All-Time Top 10 songs thread. Name your Top 10 favorite Albums / CD's of all-time. This will hopefully be easier than the songs thread, but still somewhat challenging, I'm sure. It's meant to be difficult.

    Here's mine (in no particular order):

    Paul Simon - Graceland
    Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique
    Radiohead - The Bends
    Grateful Dead - American Beauty
    Counting Crows - August and Everything After
    Bob Dylan - Bringing It All Back Home
    Jane's Addiction - Ritual de lo Habitual
    Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
    Guns N' Roses - Appetite For Destruction
    Fleetwood Mac - Rumours


    I know I'm leaving out a bunch more.

    The Wall comes to mind, so does Dark Side of the Moon...ugh! I'll probably slap myself when someone posts their list and say "DOH!", but those are the 10 that came out of my head first.

    Now that I think about it, if we're going to include compilations I think I prefer "Louder than Bombs" to "The Queen is dead"

    I'm appalled at myself for leaving out anything by Yo La Tengo who is one of my favorite bands of all time. For the sake of argument I'll go with Electro Pura.

    Need to give the props out on this album. Probably the first "contemporary" artist (relative as that is.. being a freedom rocker and all) that I ever really got into at that time. Came out when I was in 6th grade.

    First time I saw them was in 1986 when they were Dylan's band opening for the Dead. Saw em at the rubber bowl in akron.

    And WOY and I saw Tom last summer out here and it was a really good show.

    Remember when he threatened to name Hard Promises, $8.98 in protest of MCA wanting to raise the albums price?

    I saw Petty in Charlotte on the Wildflowers tour (woy wasn't with me). I don't recall how long the show went on but towards the end, the house lights came up indicating the show was over. He just kept on playing. I kept thinking they were going to cut the sound system, but they didn't. I've only seen him once, so maybe it's something he does at all his shows, but I thought it was pretty cool.

    BTW, anyone know where I can find a recording of Girl On LSD?
