What is you favorite album

I have many but two that come to mind are:

Led Zeppelin Physical Graffiti
Pink Floyd The Wall

My favorite musician is Ken Andrews.
His music is frequently described as Rock, Alternative Rock and Space Rock.
He’s the lead singer and songwriter for the bands Failure, On, and Year of the Rabbit.
He also performs solo (as Ken Andrews.)
My favorite album is Failure’s Fantastic Planet (1996), and one of my favorite playlists is Ken Andrew’s music.

I have a few favorites.

Depeche Mode - Violator
Queen - Classic Queen
Def Leppard - Hysteria
ATB - Future Memories
Delerium - Karma
Nine Inch Nails - Pretty Hate Machine
Enigma - The Cross of Changes
Pylot - Solai
Garbage - Version 2.0
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
Marilyn Manson - Golden Age of Grotesque

Having worked in a Record store for 8 years, this is tough.

But you said what is your favorite album?, as in One.
And if it can be only one it will be, for me it is the debut album Black Sabbath.
Recorded in one day it sounds as fresh today as the first time it ever blessed my ears and mind.
Actually listened to half of it today on a one hour trip along with some other early Sabbath favorites and just to feel the power and youth of early Ozzy is a true treat.
Good thread!

Yes Ozzy is incredible.

Isn’t it amazing how music and memories can be so closely associated? Hard to choose a favorite, but in 2018 some good friends of ours got married. While killing time before the wedding, I went to a record store in their city and found a used copy of Metallica’s Ride the Lightning. It’s been in our car that I usually drive ever since. Granted, I usually listen to the radio on the short trips around town, but when both of the two tolerable stations are on commercials I’ll switch over to the CD. It always reminds me of the great time with old friends that weekend.

Abbey Road

I’m surprised you went for Pretty Hate Machine over Downward Spiral. They’re both good, but curious what sways you towards that one.

There isn’t a bad track on it, and I like the slightly more raw sound and energy. DS feels a little more studio-created to me, although I enjoy it too.

Grindcore fan here. I do not want to pick one album, but Brutal Truth’s “Need to Control” is a long-time top-five favorite, but recently I have become infatuated with Wormrot’s “Hiss” album.

The last one is actual a soundtrack from the “Best Irish Film of All time”, a faux band bio.
But it certainly helps me through the night, driving my car, stereo at full blast.
