What are your absolute favorite albums? Here are mine, in alphabetical order by album title.





I think that accurately portrays my taste in music. I have a few other albums that I absolutely adore, but these ones are the most precious to me and mean the most to me / have shaped me the most. Plus, I had to limit it to some number (I chose 21 because that's how old I am). What are yours?

If we share any favorites, you should totally like my post and I'll do the same for yours!

My favourite albums are pretty eclectic, which also means I don't really have much of a taste, but here you go. My top 25.



Order in zigzag:-
Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavillion
Aphex Twin - Richard D. James Album
Boards of Canada - Music Has The Right To Children
Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago
Built to Spill - There's Nothing Wrong With Love
Daft Punk - Discovery
Death Grips - The Money Store
Erik Satie - Erik Satie: Piano Works
Eric Dolphy - Out to Lunch
Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
Girl Talk - All Day
Jay-Z - The Blueprint
Joni Mitchell - Blue
Kanye West - Late Registration
Binary Star - Masters of the Universe
The Killers - Hot Fuss
knxwledge. - Ovrstnd.LP
Madvillain - Madvillainy
Miles Davis - Relaxin' With The Miles Davis Quintet
Neutral Milk Hotel - In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
Nick Drake - Pink Moon
Radiohead - Kid A
The Streets - Original Pirate Material
The Strokes - Is This It
Tracy Chapman - Tracy Chapman

Had to decide between Yeezy's Late Registration or My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (both great albums by the way), but I feel like the former edges out for me.

EDIT: Also, if you want to make an album collage, you can do so using this link.

Here are my favourite 16, ranging from albums to EPs. My favourite genres are indie/garage rock and rap, and I like songs from other artists too, but to be honest I listen to all sorts of stuff.


Order from top going right-
The Strokes - Is This It (favourite out of all)
The Strokes - Room On Fire
The Strokes - Comedown Machine
Linkin Park - Minutes to Midnight
Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory
Plan B - The Defamation of Strickland Banks
Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP
Eminem - Relapse
Intuition - Girls Like Me
Wax - Scrublife
Wax - Eviction Notice
Wax - Continue...
Dumbfoundead - DFD
Dumbfoundead - Old Boy Jon
Dumbfoundead - Love Everyday
Dumbfoundead - Cut + Paste

Some of these guys you probably never heard of, if you do like rap/hip hop you should definitely check out the last three artists.

In order.. and two are actually EPs not LPs, but they're better than far too many albums regardless. I'd recommend any one of them to anybody, apart from Godflesh.

I hit something and lost my whole post. tl;dr I was gonna make this topic and Nick beat me to it, Ariana Grande needs an album, I love Kings of Leon, Bob Dylan is fantastic and I can't pick one of his albums, I hate you computer or PC or whatever caused me to lose my ****ing post, I'm not reposting pictures. Ugh.

Come Around Sundown - Kings of Leon
Hold Your Color - Pendulum
Deloused in the Comatorium - The Mars Volta
Led Zeppelin III - Led Zeppelin
Halcyon - Ellie Goulding
Born This Way - Lady Gaga
Torches - Foster the People
Driving Insane - Black Sun Empire
Around the Fur - Deftones
Lovestrong - Christina Perri
Loud - Rihanna

None of them are in order, except that KoL album at the top is my favorite of all time. Go figure.

Luckily I know just the site to use for this kind of thread. [Link] It'll produce the kind of thing you see in my spoiler, very time consuming though so be warned.

Anyway... my choices -

Spoiler:


I've attempted to order them, but it's difficult with most of them to separate. At least they're vaguely in the right area of where they belong though. I might have omitted a few albums accidentally, but it gives a general idea.

I'm quite happy to see a few of my albums in other users' posts already. Very good taste people. :P

I had a hard time picking my all-time favorite albums. I don't think I really did and I'm sure I couldn't actually do it, but this is close. These are all albums that I like in their entirety and ones that I've at times listened to over and over and would again.



avengers in sci-fi - dynamo
capsule - L.D.K. Lounge Designers Killer
Caroline - Murmurs
Cat Power - The Greatest
Daft Punk - Alive 2007
David Bowie - Hunky Dory
Do As Infinity - Deep Forest
Florence + the Machine - Ceremonials
Imogen Heap - Speak For Yourself
Kate Bush - Hounds of Love
Matryoshka - Zatracenie
Mumford & Sons - Sigh No More
Onitsuka Chihiro - Insomnia
Sakamoto Maaya - Kazeyomi
Sakanaction - kikUUiki
Sigur Rós - Takk...

(They're in alphabetical order, of course.)

Damn good stuff right there, Nuke. I didn't put any mixtapes on, but yeah 1999 is the **** [long live asap too], hopefully Joey's new EP will be good as well. You should check out the Underachievers' tape Indigoism if youre into those guys. Also I'm a bit surprised to see no Acid rap haha, that one's usually a favorite of hip hop heads/indie guys.

also I just dled J Dilla's Donuts, and it's really good, definitely a fan of it, i'd probably consider it for the list in my above post

This is one of my favorite albums from a local band.

I still own this cassette from 1978 that my parents gave me.

Great taste bro, I don't see a lot of people listening to Edan, and Graduation is a totally underrated Yeezy album.
