Exclamation TOP TEN ALBUMS

I wracked my brain to do this for Facebook so I figured I'd share here


Not necessarily in order past first 2, and only 1 album per artist:

1. Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie
2. Tool - Aenema
3. Boris - Pink
4. Sleep - Jerusalem
5. Steve Reich - Music for 18 Musicians
6. Aaron Copland - Appalachian Spring
7. Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Year of the Horse
8. Velvet Underground - White Light White Heat
9. David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust
10. Pearl Jam - No Code

Honorable Mention: Neutral Milk Hotel - Aeroplane Over the Sea

I'd probably make a different list every day. I feel really bad leaving off these artists that mean so much to me:

Earth
Bob Dylan
Miles Davis
Coltrane
Iggy and Stooges
SWANS
Jesus Lizard
Burning Witch
Khanate
OM
Nine Inch Nails
SunnO)))
Rage Against the Machine
Aphex Twin
Six Organs of Admittance
Bonnie Prince Billy
Radiohead
Dead C
Fugazi
Tom Waits
Sun Kil Moon
Dream Theater
Black Sabbath
Melvins
Sun City Girls
Merzbow
Emperor
Wolves in the Throne Room
Nirvana
Deerhunter
King Crimson
Yes
Arcade Fire
At the Drive In
Steely Dan
MC5

plus a shitload of other artists and albums, classical music and jazz recordings, lots of black metal, not to mention some amazing horror film soundtracks

I always struggle with this. I always end up leaving off albums I love, so here's an off-the-cuff but not all-encompassing list:

Weezer - The Blue Album
Faith No More - Angel Dust
Deftones - White Pony
Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream
Rush - 2112
The Cure - Disintegration
The Mountain Goats - Tallahassee
Black Sabbath - Master of Reality
Pixies - Doolittle
Cursive - The Ugly Organ
Jimmy Eat World - Clarity
Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique
Social Distortion - Social Distortion
Queens of The Stone Age - Rated R
Alice In Chains - Jar of Flies [EP]

I too cannot count.

You're top 3 here provide the base guitar chordage for how I was influenced through other guitarists I jammed around with. My bandmate/guitarist picked up on all sorts of unique guitar stylings from Ken Andrews mostly. He would listen by ear the chordings and try to emulate the sound, which means it prolly wasn't exact, which made it all the more unique in its own way (using standard fingering on top-two strings in drop-D, as an example).


I like Failure's recent album as well. Ken Andrews does a most difficult style of slow-plodding rock music very well.

Great list.

Flamer, do you hear the obvious Rush 2112 influence at the end of Geek U.S.A. like I do? I swear when I first heard SD and that song came on, I was waiting to hear "Attention all planets of the solar federation, WE HAVE ASSUMED CONTROL" after that hurried flurry of rock at the end of geek.

Failure really delivered with their latest. I was not expecting it to be so good, but it sits perfectly amongst their other work.

Yeah, I get Rush vibes from a lot of early Pumpkins, but never considered the 2112/USA connection. I wouldn't be surprised if that's what Billy was going for, superfan that he is.

Sounds like I would really love your music because that's the best guitar sound in the world. And I like the heart is a monster too, I didn't know Greg could sing so well. There's a lot more harmony on this new one but those strings and drums still shine. I really love I Can See Houses. They always have the best ending tracks. Daylight and Small Crimes are incredible.

It kind of breaks my heart a little bit that hardly anyone is aware of Failure and their new material. In my opinion, that album deserves all the praise that Billy thinks he deserves for a decade of mediocre work. THAT is how you do a comeback album.

Are you going to the Fantastic Planet album tour? I am! I saw them play WITH hum last year thanks to Aztec Litany Service and Kelli Scott gave me his drum stick

i'm shocked at how many of you slap MCIS on there.
i love many, many songs off it, and some single tracks are high up among sp's best, but as a complete record, it's probably my least favorite sp album

i'm probably the odd one though
