My greatest albums of all time, subject to change and sans any fancy album cover graphic linking:
(in no particular order and in no way THE greatest albums of all time, just my personal favorites)

Violent Femmes - Violent Femmes
Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast
Metallica - Master of Puppets
The Cure - Distintegration
Dr. Dre - The Chronic

Those are the five I go to the deserted isle with if I had to choose.

I enjoy Bowie, but I really don't think any of his albums qualify as the greatest of all time. I humbly suggest:



Yep.
Who's Next is one, if not THE, best, especially the "revised" version.

This is a great album. Psychadelic! I love that cover too.

It is actually three albums that have been released in one compilation. in my opinion, Michael Nesmith is quite underrated.



A couple obscure albums that I absolutely love:



Songs: Ohia - Magnolia Electric Co.



September 67 - Lucky Shoe

I would also agree with Pink Floyd's Dark Side and would also add that I don't think any band was as consistently great as The Beatles. My favorite Beatles album is probably Revolver but they are all incredible.

Some amazing picks here, love the diversity and quality of choices.  From Todd Rundgren to Prefab Sprout to My Bloody Valentine, impressive!

My personal (and very difficult) picks by decade:


1960s, The Zombies - Odessey and Oracle


1970s, Big Star - #1 Record


1980s, Kate Bush - The Dreaming


1990s, American Music Club - Mercury


2000s, The Avalanches - Since I Left You

Kyuss: Sky Valley

Soundgarden: Badmotorfinger


I keep coming back to these two CDs. I can't decide which one I like better.

It's really that good?  I've been meaning to check it out for years now after a friend told me about them and a couple years ago I got an SBD of one of their shows which was great (and then a radio performance which wasn't as great)

It's pretty damned great.  "Aeroplane" is one of those love-it-or-hate-it albums.  I sure know a lot of people who love it, though.

I wouldn't doubt that, the show I did like had some cool drumming whatevers (obviously a huge technical knowledge here) and there were one or 2 songs with just the singer and guitarist and of course the trumpet player(maybe trombone?)

Listen to the first ten seconds and see if you're intrigued.  I definitely was won over almost instantly, which almost never happens, but the time the first two lines were sung.  I imagine there is overlap between Waits fans and Neutral Milk Hotel, though I couldn't explain why.  This video could also probably help convince you:

I have that song on the bootleg I have and still like it... First song on the bootleg though, which sold me instantly too, was "Oh Comedy" which for the most part is only vocals/guitar I think

Could be the voice that overlaps them...  That and their unconventional sound.  Those are 2 major parts of Tom Waits obviously.  Probably part of the reason that there's a huge overlap in Les Claypool and Tom Waits fans too

edit - BY THE WAY, I keep forgetting, any idea which of the guys sang "Downtown Train" during Daredevil?
