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.

          there are too many more to mention - usually the ones above I listen to the most, at least on my cell phone, very rarely on my computer.

              Spoiler:


              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
              Back to Bedlam - James Blunt
              Curtain Call - Eminem
              + - Ed Sheeran
              Chariot - Gavin DeGraw

              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.

                    Way too hard to choose some favorite albums of mine.. one band I can listen to no matter what mood I am in is mewithoutYou. I can't even choose a favorite album by them.. Catch for us the Foxes, A>B Life, Brother Sister... darn my indecisiveness.

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

                                holy **** yeah quiggy you do have an amazing taste, i rediscovered below the heavens this summer and it's probably one of my favorite albums out of all of them, such an amazing hip hop album, logic, ye and nujabes are all great too, i should probably check out eyedea given the similarities in our music tastes

                                id edit my post with the new stuff i found but theres way too much, stars of cctv owns really hard though
