    Does "Album" mean vinyl? Do CDs count?

    To be a great album, in my mind, it has to have good-to-great songs throughout, not just a few solid cuts but something you enjoy listening to repeatedly from beginning to end. Among my candidates:

    "Salute" - Gordon Lightfoot
    "Strong Persuader" - Robert Cray Band
    "Too Low For Zero" - Elton John
    "Rubber Soul" - The Beatles

    As for "greatest hits" and CD compilations, my top one is "A Decade Of Steely Dan".
    I miss the old Mile High Stadium.

    An album can be played via record, mp3, or CD. So yes.


    MIA - Kala
    The Beatles - Revolver
    Weezer - Weezer
    Radiohead - In Rainbows
    Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
    The Strokes - Is This It?
    The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground
    Rush - 2112
    Sigur Rs – gtis byrjun

    I think I can only come up with 9 definitive favorites without repeating artists. #10 could be either of the following, it's essentially a toss up:

    Weezer - Pinkerton
    The Beatles - Let It Be; Abbey Road
    M.I.A. - Arular
    Radiohead - The King of Limbs; Amnesiac
    The Velvet Underground - VU&Nico; Loaded
    Animal Collective - Strawberry Jam
    Beastie Boys - Pauls Boutique
    Sonic Youth - EVOL; Murray Street
    Prince - Dirty Mind

    Enjoying the lists.

    I love music too much to have to choose just one favorite album... I couldn't possibly do it.

    I know I haven't sold anyone on Jazz yet but my favorite album is Miles Davis Kind of Blue. It was rated the twelfth best album of all time according to Rolling Stones top 500 albums of all time.

    http://dj-funktual.hubpages.com/hub/...ms-of-All-Time

    John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley made up part of Miles' group This group was labeled the first great quintet.

    Also from Miles Davis in the top 500 was Miles Davis Bitches Brew, the album that really started Fusion Jazz and Miles Davis Sketches of Spain an Jazz collaboration based off of Spanish classical music.

    I play them often.

    Probably Pantera's Vulgar Display of Power or Maybe Megadeth's Countdown to Extinction. Those two were perfection.

    Lotta love for Radiohead on here. I still think their best album was OK Computer or The Bends, can't decide. In Rainbows was interesting, but the most recent one I need to listen to more to "get" I suppose.

    Off the top of my head.

    Moondance - Van Morisson
    The Wall - Pink Floyd
    Legend - Bob Marley
    Appetite for Destruction - GNR
    At Folsum Prison - Johnny Cash



    Legend was not an album of bobs. It is a compilation of his greatest hits. While I agree, that CD is SUPREME to many and I could listen to it over and over again. It is a greatest hits cd and not an individual album..just fyi.
    What I want:
    1 Shazier LB. 2 Donte Moncreif WR. 3 SJB CB. 4 Antone exum-s/cb. 5 Brandon Thomas-ol. 6. OL 7 Kapri Bibs RB.

    What I think:

    1.-If Mosley or Shazier is there they take him. If not, trade back with jacksonville (they want a Qb5 yr option)
    2A.- Jimmy Ward S/CB
    2B. Joel Bitonio T/OG
    3. SJB-cb.
    4. Preston Brown LB
    5. Jeff Janis WR
    6. John Brown-wr/kr.
    7. Alfred Blue-rb

    Everyone is doing multiple albums. You know my #1, here are a few more. My criteria is that I can put the album on, listen to it from start to finish and not skip one track.


    The Roots - Do You Want More
    Madlib - Shades of Blue (Canmore, you might want to check this one out, or some of the stuff by Yesterday's New Quintet.)
    The Pharcyde - Bizarreride 2
    De La Soul - Stakes Is High
    DJ Shadow - Endtroducing
    Quasimoto - The Unseen
    I got mind control while I'm here
    You goin' hate me when I'm gone
    Ain't no blood clot and no fear
    I got hope inside of my bones
