whoa dude, the paperbacks? i have lit from within and it's good but nothing spectacular

I don't know what it is about An Episode of Sparrows but it keeps me coming back again and again. There is something familiar, warm and inviting about the half-crunch half-clean pop hooks of their guitars, and the lyrics are so fantastic and real. I would also make love to Doug McLean's voice. I can't claim it's objectively the best thing ever, but it's up there in my preferences.

Meteora was pretty good, but Hybrid Theory was too good for Linkin Park's own good. It was all downhill from there.

The tattoo place downtown actually has this original painting. It doesn't look much better in real life, gotta be honest.

That's sad to read... But on the other hand: There are many things that don't look as good IRL.

The painting is still cool though.

Oh by the way. My not "being a dick" favorite album is:


There are things I probably enjoy more now but this is probably the most formative for me. My music taste wasn't very far-reaching when my friend showed me these guys and it was very different than anything I had heard before, and I really liked it. It caused me to explore a lot. It has a lot of sentimental value.

Going out of my way to state once again that just calling something "boring" is a really dogshit + lazy way of criticising music and should be banned forever.

Sometimes I have moments of lucidity when I realize that people who can't think of any reason they don't like something other than "it's boring" just aren't putting in enough effort to focus their attention and open their minds.

Then those moments pass, more interesting things come along and I once again hate Jack Johnson.

It feels dishonest to my continuing life to choose a single favorite album that can encompass all of my time.

We all love a lot of music here, so wouldn't it just be better if we added our Favorite Albums to this thread as we come to realize or remember what will always hold a certain power over us?
What's that you say?
Oh, people have been doing that already?
Excellent!

I tend to realize where my favorites lie when I can forget about them completely when I'm spending the majority of my time listening to new music. Some of these albums I almost never feel a strong desire to listen to anymore, but when they come on, I'm compelled to listen the whole way through because THE EMOTION. that I feel for it suddenly comes rushing back to me in such a torrent of MUSICAL APPRECIATION that I mentally file it away as another personally, potentially timeless love.
It's like straddling thunder. You can hear it when your head explodes.

SO I LOVE THIS


AND THIS


AND THIS


AND ALSO THIS


AND REALLY UNABASHEDLY THIS


AND DEFINITELY THIS



But somehow I still feel restricted by that question. I'm going to stop there because I don't want to flood the page with unnecessary album covers, even though I just did.
Man.
What a dick.

So I've been actually thinking. Well, that was oddly worded, but I'm not editing that. I used to phrase things in terms of "Graceland is one of the BEST ALBUMS EVER," because, well, Graceland. Yeah. But then I don't know! Is it actually because it's a really good album, or is it because it was my favourite album when I was five years old? What sort of things affect the way we perceive music? I know a really fascinating music video can change a mediocre song for me, because I attach the memory of that video to the song, bringing its status up (in my opinion). Or if I'm listening to it at a time in my life when I am really happy, and I'm listening to it, it changes my perception of it, and my memory of it is attached to that music, changing my opinion again. A lot of my favourite albums I started listening to in spring or summer, and very few did I actually start listening to in, say, fall or winter. So when I hear Tea for the Tillerman, do I like the music? Or do I like the memories associated with it?

I'm just curious what experiences outside of the music can contribute to the actual music itself.

I think, to answer this question you need to be able to say why you listen to music in the first place. I'm sure that P-Tommy above you does not listen to music like you listen to music, and I can assure you that I listen to music differently from you both.

The way we enjoy art or entertainment can often be the exact distinction we personally make between art and entertainment. We all let outside influences affect the way we perceive the things that we enjoy, but you and I will not let them affect us similarly. I learned to love that My Bloody Valentine album when I was a kid reading fantasy novels at night in the dead of winter, my ass on the floor, and my back uncomfortably pressed against the wooden frame of my bed. This did change the way I heard the album, but not significantly.
I've never been good at multitasking. There are studies that claim avid gamers are excellent at this, and in a way I am, but my desire to multitask is constantly decimated by the way doing so divides my attention. I have always had difficulty feeling like I've experienced something good and proper if my attention is divided, no matter how well I can achieve both tasks. Loveless struck out at me, competing for my attention the entire way through a Robert Jordan book that I was enjoying immensely. The absolute fervor with which Jordan builds his climactic final scenes struggled to raise itself above the joyous effulgence of MBV's sugar-spun guitar whorls. Of course, neither grabbed my attention over the other in this instance. This was suddenly a rare occasion in which I was able to grant both the album and the story my undivided attention. It felt odd. I love both to this day.

That was a weird anecdote and I do not feel like it would be right entirely or even at all to blame my tired mind or numb fingers but rather the immense amount of writing Majoring in English has forced upon me in the past week.
I have not slept an aye.

Shit, heres some more just because.

Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is an album I will just always love.

Journeyman because its interesting to hear that Clapton not only survived the 80s but made strong progression into the 90s. His tone is aboslutely fantastic, although I imagine it has something to do with copious amounts of Signature Stratocasters.

Ten because once you become a Pearl Jam fan you just don't stop. Interestingly another album that tends to supercede future material (especially as Vs was really, really good compared to No Code.)

My explanations are poor but pretty damn hard to express your love for certain albums. My favourites seem to change all the time, theres always something heavy, some blues, and something from my parent's generation.

Will be checking out Blackwater Park because it seems like a good'un! Opeth are a band I just never really got into.
