    I never got Radiohead. Still don't...



    Maybe The Fragile Disc 1 Comes Close. Or Scenes From a Memory.

    Isaac Stern - Humouresque, Favourite Violin Encores.

    While I usually enjoy full pieces of work, if I only had 1 album to choose this would give me snippets of many beautiful works played by a master of the craft.

    I've had "No. 1 Song in Heaven" on high rotation in my "Faves" playlist ever since I got my first iPod back in '05. I've liked the song since it came out back in 1979.

    Can't decide on a favourite album, though. Maybe one of these...



    For the record : Squeeze-Singles / Talking Heads-True Stories / Barenaked Ladies-Gordon
    The status quo ain't what it used to be.

    If I had to pick just one album, it's Tigermilk. It's Belle and Sebastian's first album, it's sort of rough (as rough as B&S can be anyway), and it's all kinds of beautiful. Just a wonderful album all-round. Also, I don't get sick of singing along to it.

    Either that, or the 'Lazy Line Painter Jane' EP. It's quite possibly my favourite song ever.

    No contest for me:
    • I'm a huge Metallica fan;
    • I like stuff from right across their career;
    • this is a double album so twice as much as your average album meaning a little bit more variety

    Nine Inch Nails - The Fragile (1999)



    This isn't 'just an album', it's fucking art. The amount of material built around this album is also staggering (acoustic album, remix album, live concert, countless singles with many versions, and heaps of unreleased/leaked songs). Over at EchoingTheSound.org forums I was part of a project bringing out alternate versions of 'The Fragile'. This is also my favourite NIN 'era'.

    Best ever is too hard to call, but this one always puts me in a good mood.

    Which was a piece of shit, it clipped like a bitch and had no depth.

    I ripped the DVD audio and encoded it in AAC, it's amazing how much better it sounds compared to the CD release. Sucks that you can't buy the DVD anywhere locally, got it from Amazon.

    At least they mastered 'Still' properly. But then again, they did that in Reznor's studio in New Orleans, not some random concert arena.

    Related to the album art, this was also funny:

    A side-by-side comparison of art found at a UK McDonald`s look very similar to the screenshots art from a Nine Inch Nail`s teaser trailer of "The Fragile".

    At the moment it is this group. I call it meditative jazz and it draws you in a most persuasive manner. Belle and Sebastian would be pretty high on the list too.

    This is the first album that made me feel like a real teenager and not just an older kid. other albums have come and gone, but this taught me to feel passionate about music, not just listen to it.

    Yeah I loved that album too. In fact, Nevermind was later considered too smooth a mix for a grunge band; Bleach and In Utero were the essence of Nirvana and all that is grunge

    Too hard to choose one favourite, but if I was forced to make a choice:

    "Murder, she says. At a time like this?"
