Music Thread

Post by diedpretty » Thu 09 Jan, 2014 11:35 pm

My wife bought me a book by Toby Creswell and Craig Mathieson for Xmas entitled "100 Best Albums Of All Times" - it was take from their perspective ( Australian ) and a good read. Their choice was not based on sales or popularity but on lasting impression. It wasn't your usual top 100. Yea it had the Beatles and Stones, The Who etc but not necessarily the albums everyone would expect. But it made me think that although we have a movie thread there is no music thread. While reading the book I was listening to a lot of the albums they had chosen - probably the most recent they chose was Arcade Fire - Funeral. Being 61 years of age and left field I like a lot of their choices but thought they had missed a lot of newer stuff. I have just been listening to Jake Buggs new album " Shangri La " and think it will stand the test of time.
I'd like to know what people think are the greatest albums of all time and what new stuff might still be considered relevant in 10/20 years time.

I agree Ten is a classic album - interestingly Creswell didn't include it in his top 100 - he did include VS at number 54.

That's harder to answer than who should start in the back row this year!

If I was stuck on a deserted island, these 5 albums would keep me going for a while (in no particular order)...

Drunken lullabies - Flogging Molly
Sigh no more - Mumford & Sons
Welcome to wherever you are - INXS
Whatever people say I am, that's what I'm not - Arctic Monkeys
Hourly, Daily - You Am I

Yea that's true - I could list a 1000 albums and still not be finished - maybe it should be albums that have had an impact on you personally. If I use that criteria I rate

The Who - Whos Next
U2 - Joshua Tree
Ramones - Ramones
The Strawbs - Grave New World
CSNY - Deja Vu

Revolver is an on obvious choice to be right up there. It's a total classic. I like different sorts including innervisions, machine head, London calling, thriller, master of puppets, appetite for destruction, led zep 4, never mind.....the usual classics. I really dug the grunge scene with PJ, Alice in chains, soundgarden, mother love bone etc. I find that these days bands write great singles but struggle to produce great albums. The WA scene is quite strong though

wow, hugely difficult to choose, but i would say my personal top 10 albums would be:

1. Nine Types of Light - TV on the Radio
2. Elephant - White Stripes
3. Electric - The Cult
4. The Real Thing - Faith No More
5. Appetite for Destruction - Guns n Roses
6. Violent Femmes - Violent Femmes
7. Illinoise - Sufjan Stevens
8. Metallica - Metallica
9. Kick - INXS
10. Siamese Dream - Smashing Pumpkins

honourable mentions to: Play/18/Hotel - moby; Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magic - RHCP; Youve Come a Long Way, Baby - Fatboy Slim; Dookie/21st Century Breakdown - Green Day; Channel Orange - Frank Ocean.

edit: just looked at Sgt. Peppers to refresh my memory, and its not that great (imo). i love A Day in the Life, but the rest is only so so, so off it goes. i do love the Beatles (67 onwards), though i only really listen to single songs, rather than albums, although i have been getting around to listening to Revolver (Tomorrow Never Knows is awesome).

Wow, I'm impressed by some of the musical tastes in this thread, being a teenager in the 90's I'm also into a lot of the Grunge bands. Never in my life did I expect to see Mother Love Bone spoken about on this forum, I actually listened to their wonderful album on vinyl yesterday. My top 10 albums at this point in time.

1. No Code Pearl Jam
2. Ten Pearl Jam
3. Badmotorfinger Soundgarden
4. Dirt Alice in Chains
5. Rage Against the Machine Rage Against the Machine
6. Metallica Metallica
7. Blackout The Dropkick Murphys
8. Vs Pearl Jam
9. Nevermind Nirvana
10. Brothers in Arms Dire Straights

Has anyone noticed the new One Direction song Midnight Memories and Late 80's band Def Leppard's Pour Some Sugar on Me

Soon as I heard it , bang

I reckon One Direction's management may have some questions to answer in regards to copying

It Down Under and Kookaburra sits under the old Gum Tree can be thought to sound the same , this song is screwed
