What are your choices for ‘Best Ten Albums of All Time’?

(Barbara Deane) #21

The Supernatural…an unforgettable piece of music.

(Peter Bird) #22

Some classic albums listed already.

An impossible choice…

Alice Cooper - Schools Out
David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust
Carole King - Tapestry
CSNY - Déja Vu
Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells
Uriah Heep - Demons and Wizards
The Beatles - Get Back
Stephen Stills - Manasass
Neil Young - Harvest
The Beatles - Sgt Peppers

(Sandy Hewlett) #23

Tubular Bells has got to be on that list … all of the album is original and has stood the test of time! Frampton Comes Alive … that’s how a live album should be done. Defo Sgt Pepper. Bowie - I’m thinking Ziggy Stardust will remain as the iconic album. Dark Side Of The Moon - Pink Floyd. There’s plenty more … Beach Boys Pet Sounds was changing music as well.

Yes, thanks for reminding me about Tubular Bells…I must look out the disc for that… went down a treat at the Christmas Carols session some years ago…time to give it another whirl…:grinning: (I have to start organizing the playlist in July, as the time flies by)

Just been looking at the top 100 selling albums list. Very few of our choices appear so far. Probably goes to show how personal these things are…

(Louise Phillips) #27

There are loads more I could add, and 10 is so few, but here goes…

Stone Roses - Stone Roses
Pink Floyd - Dark side of the Moon
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - Damn the Torpedos
The Cars - The Cars
T-Rex - Electric Warrior
David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust
Joni Mitchelle - Clouds
Julie London - Julie is her Name
Nat King Cole - Unforgettable
Miles Davis - A Kind of Blue

(Mark Robbins) #28

That’s because we obviously don’t like/think much of country/rap music and M. Jackson, and haven’t included “greatest hits” type albums.

(stella wood) #29

Music is a very personal thing… . I think we have had a great selection posted here… and there are bound to be more just waiting to be rediscovered…

Country/Rap and M Jackson will soon appear on someone’s list… and why not ??? :grinning:

(Chris Kite) #30

Can’t disagree with that…

(Dave Sheriton) #31

Had it have been a top 20 Album list I would have included a Nanci Griffiths album. The one artist I have kept from my Country days of the early 90’s.

(Tim Blake) #32

Dark Side of the Moon, surely ?

(Ann Coe) #33

Many years ago my French partner suggested we listen to music (sorry no Classical here) from 1963 to present day (several hundred albums) and make a list of the albums that we considered the best from each group. By voting seperately and tallying the points we came up with a list of the best albums for those years (419).

In no order (and they change a lot) these are my 10 current favourites

Sixx AM - This is gonna hurt

Aerosmith - Toys in the Attic

Alice Cooper - Million Dollar Babies

Pearl Jam - Ten

Pink Floyd - Dark side of the Moon

Led Zepplin - 1V

Santana - Supernatural

The Sones - Sticky Fingers

Ten Years After - Ssssh

AC/DC - Highway to Hell

(Mark Robbins) #34

I thought Billion dollar babies was a much better album :sunglasses:

(Ann Coe) #35

Ha ha Mark, I wondered who was going to spot that mistake ! You must be richer than me :wink:

(Mandy Davies) #36

Loving everyone’s lists. Great post.

Most people who know me think I have terrible taste in music and I was always ridiculed as a teenager (in the 1980s) for being a huge fan of Barry Manilow. Anyway, here’s my favourites although with some it’s difficult to choose particular albums.

Barry Manilow - choose any album, all of them are wonderful.

The Carpenters - again, chose any album. Karen Carpenter’s voice was sublime.

Bee Gees - Saturday Night Fever - iconic music, can’t believe no-one else has chosen them.

Bee Gees - Their Greatest Hits The Record - the album that hubby and I chose to listen to together most often.

Spice Girls - Spice - can’t beat a bit of girl power.

Elvis Presley - Always on my Mind The Ultimate Love Songs Collection - again, first time he’s been mentioned. Such a beautiful voice.

Bridget Jones Diary Soundtrack - I know, I know but this is my favourite film and I adore this collection of songs.

Phil Collins - Hits - what can I say?, most of you probably howling by now!!

Kylie Minogue - Light Years - the comeback abum that included Spinning Around and those gold hotpants! Love Kylie, an inspiration for me.

Robbie Williams - once again I can’t chose just the one.

(Mark Robbins) #37

Brilliant selection Mandy, closest I’ve got with any of them are early Genesis and Kylies duo with Nick Cave

(Mark Robbins) #38

One of the first albums I ever bought, it might have even been the first.

(bryan savage) #39

I think mine have to be od school soul from my DJ days a loooong time ago
The Big 16 - The Impressions
Um,um,um,um,um,um - Major Lance ( import)
Ecstasy- Ohio Players
But these could change according to my mood
