Your Favorite Music Album of All Time

Was there ever a music album that captured you so much to the point where it still inspires you today and gives you an instant chubby the moment you hear it without end forever and ever amen?

The moment I first heard this album, my life changed. There has never been an album that so agreed with me and my temporary worldly soul of existence.

Achtung Baby

Sorry, forgot about Arlo Guthrie and Alices Restaurant

My favorite song of his besides Alices Restaurant Massacree is The Motorcycle Song (Significance of the Pickle) This was 40 years ago, and it reminds you that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Take time to listen and be amused. It's well worth it.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

I like the power of the human voice.

However, in the 'odd and cool' file, a couple CD's that never leave the car in case of a long drive are collections of the Red Army Chorus. I've always had a thing for Russian music. It can be defiant and ultimate "man" sound to sad and gut-wrenching - sometimes is the same chorus of a song. There are some powerful moments when I feel like stopping the car and standing. I didn't take the time to find my favorite songs, but here are a couple from a brief youtube search.

SMiLE would have been had it

SMiLE would have been had it been finished back in '67.

Pet Sounds is probably my all-time favorite album. I love the instrumentation, the arrangements, the moods evoked, the somber and mellow melodies.

Recently, I listened to Soft Bulletin by the Flaming Lips and decided that that's definitely a close 2nd.

Sgt. Pepper, Abbey Road and the White album bring back some great memories. And it's not like I'm all that old. I just listened to those albums a lot in high school and college.

Oh, and Rubber Soul and

Oh, and Rubber Soul and Revolver.

The entire album is a story.

I have other favorite genres and songs, but as far as a complete love story wrapped into one album, this still does it for me:

[Which govt. database does this go into?]

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Hmm. Wonder what album it was?

A song search just led me to this thread. When I saw your comment, I was curious to know what album you were referring to--- only to find that the answer was missing! I hope you'll look for another version and re-post--- or all the people who took five months to get here will be left hanging. :)

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know Peace." - Jimi Hendrix

Yes, this is a great album.

Yes, this is a great album. So is Fullfillingness' First Finale. I got into that one fairly recently. It's more mellow than his previous records.

Metallica

...And Justice For All

Social distortion

Social Distortion.
White light White heat White Trash

"You only live free if your willing to die free."

I love Wintersun

However, I would not pick it as the best in that genre. I would go with either In Flames' Jester Race or COB's Hatebreeder.

“The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants.” — Albert Camus

corny posers...

try the real deal with the new Carcass album :)

That's a really solid album

Grabbed it the day it came out.

Wintersun posers though? I beg to differ. I've never heard a better melodic dm band, ever. That includes Carcass's old stuff. Of course Wintersun is even better live; in fact I would say it was the best live performance I have ever witnessed.
