« View previous chartView next chart »

It's very hard to pick your favorite albums, and it's even harder to put them in some consecutive order, so just consider this an incomplete list. It's also bound to change, because of new releases and other various factors. These are the albums that keep getting better the older I get, and make me want to come back for more.

But enough rambling; here's my list. Enjoy!

Who's NextUnited Kingdom The Who
"It's only teenage wasteland"

"Few albums in the pantheon of classic rock recordings embody the greatness of an artist more than 1971's Who's Next." – PopMatters

This statement is so true; if I ever meet someone who want to know the awesomeness that is The Who, I point to this album first. Though I love 'Quadrophenia', 'Who's Next' is the album is always the one I point to first for beginning listeners. If you want to know the greatness that is 'The Who', start with this album and then branch out. A must listen!

The Joshua TreeIreland U2
"With or without you, I can't live with or without you"

"U2 graduated to superstardom with The Joshua Tree, an album that's survived all those years in the spotlight as a masterpiece." – Pitchfork

This is my favorite U2 album to introduce new fans to the group. Though I don't love it as much as 'Achtung Baby', I feel this is much more hopeful than 'Achtung Baby'. Also, this is the first time since 'October' that they were exposing their faith in their music. Though not as blunt as 'October', it serves well with what the themes of the album of faith, and the idea that is America. It's a great album for beginners, as well as one that older fans can enjoy more and more as the years go by.
