recommend a 'classic' album (not your fav album!)

Recommended Posts

To help fill the time, we all need good suggestions of different things to do. :) 

So recommend a classic album - but *NOT* your favourite album or your favourite act. A proper classic.

Cos I saw 'Metal Britannica' on BBC4 the other night, I'll kick things off with...

Deep Purple - Deep Purple In Rock.

Rush - Moving Pictures is right there.

I do like Rush but they're nowhere near my favourite act. Moving Pictures is a record that's hard not to appreciate.

Happy Mondays - Pills, Thrills and Bellyaches.

Seems to get forgotten about these days, in comparison to Screamadelica and The Stone Roses. Yet it is a true great and can't fail to put a smile on your face.

Arcade Fire - Funeral

An absolute classic. Total genius from start to finish.

It's Electric Wizard's 'Dopethrone' 20 year anniversary this year so that's a great reason to listen to it if you haven't before.

I've been listening to a lot of Avalanches lately, Since I Left You is a great escape from reality. I put my headphones on and for an hour and feel like I'm teleported away to a happier place

I’m going to recommend two as, in my eyes (and ears) they are the same album...even they were relased 3 years apart.

They aren’t my favourite albums of all time, buy definitely in the top 20.

Whenever I’m in the mood to listen to them, I get totally ensconced in them and listen to nothing else for a week. Then I don’t listen to them for about 6 months!

Perfect at delicate times and at times of change, they sound amazing in Autumn. And at times of pandemic.

bit of a weird one - but Bruce's Born to Run

i love Bruce, i've followed him round the world, and i love Born to Run - but it is NOT my favourite album.

so why is that?

well, because Side2 Track2 is She's the One and i cant stand that song!!

it pains me that what is otherwise the most perfect album ever made is dragged down by those crappy few minutes between BTR and Meeting...

 

sorry, i'm not entirely sure i wrote that out in the spirit of the OP, but anyways...

these are sometimes a bit rough and ready, but always interestuing and sometimes fantastic.

(there's some others out there too if you google for them)

'gimix' is supposedly what the first album would have been if they'd bveen able to clear all the sample.

I love this album, it's where I look first when things are not going my way.
