Right now it's this....



Recorded in the 50s, transferred straight from the original tapes onto SACD, sounds better than *any* recording I've *ever* heard in my life. Except for maybe some jazz recordings on a certain Japanese label . But really, this recording of Scheherazade sounds minblowing. You have to hear it on a good system/pair of headphones capable of reproducing the acoustics properly though. But when you do, man, everything is clear as daylight and hits you in the face more than any recording I've heard. Especially the last movement, which was recorded in a single take.

I shall immediately show my age with my response to the subject of this thread. Deal with it.





The White Album.

AKA THIS:


DISCLAIMER: There is only one "song" on this album that I hate with a passion. It is NOT a song, but over eight minutes of essentially white noise put together by John and Yoko while they were stoned.

You know what? I think I enjoy Rubber Soul the most, mainly because it has more songs on it that I'm really familiar with? Also, Norwegian Wood.

I think I usually pick Abbey Road because I kinda like that in spite of all the dudes' angers they were still able to create such a gd masterpiece,

but secretly my favorite is Rubber Soul, it just has connotations for me now

Abbey Road for me. If Revolver got rid of Eleanor Rigby/Yellow Submarine and replaced them with Paperback Writer/Rain it would be the greatest album ever.

If I had to pick a Beatles album, it'd be Abbey Road.

But in the end I'd likely go with Developer by Silkworm.

Or something by Current 93. Or Ornette Coleman. Or Lee "Scratch" Perry. Or Neil Young.

But probably Silkworm.

Either Morningrise or maybe From Mars To Sirius/The Link. Or Catch 33. Maybe Destroy Erase Improve? In a Flesh Aquarium?

This is HARD.

Hmmm, hard.... For me it's a tie between this three albums. All of them changed my life and way to view music.

Opeth - Morningrise


Acid Bath - When The Kite String Pops


Esoteric - The Maniacal Vale



Masterpieces imho.

perhaps Black Sheep Boy


This is one of a few albums that I can always very easily listen to all the way through and love every minute of it.  Plus the album came out at a time in my life where everything felt in place which I think is probably rare or something.

What album is that?

OP: Maaan, why you got to ask a question like that? Maaaaaaannnn...

It really is too hard to say. Sometimes it would be The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place. Sometimes it would be Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven. Sometimes it might be Nebraska. Or Ashes Against The Grain. Or The Mantle.

This is so freaking hard. Especially as I just got into a load of metal.

I'm going to say ...

Texas Flood, for an album I constantly revist.

At the moment, toss up between Double Nickels on the Dime and Meet the Meatbats.

It may be a bit premature, but right now I feel like it is Gnaw Their Tongues - All The Dread Magnificence Of Perversity.  But the album only came out a year and a half ago, so I don't know how I'll feel about it a few years down the road.

I don't enjoy it in the context of the album but I love it in any other situation. it kind of reminds me of a less creepy Kreng track

uh, do you have any idea what white noise sounds like?
