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

I go years without listening to this, and then become obsessed with it for a few weeks - and the cycle continues. Currently assisting me working from home right now.

Funny enough I'm building a playlist collection of classic albums at the moment, so this thread will help massively!

For my part, only discovered this as an album (beyond the singles) relatively recently. Get some Marvin in your ears. Quite dark themes of social commentary, but wrapped up in a sound that will soothe the soul. Gorgeous.

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.

Got this recorded to watch, good I take it?

Image result for flying lotus flamagra

been listening to a bit of weirdo electronica recently, it seems to make sense to me at the moment.  was gonna go with FSOL, but the album of theirs i'd suggest isn't perhaps the most appropriately titled (and ISDN is one of my all time faves, so that's out!). 

so flylo it is.

I am part way through. It is alright

 

Watched the slipknot one just before. That was ok as well, wish I had seen them really when I had a couple of chances

I never listen to rawk nowadays (he says with 'In Rock' playing in the background :P ), but for an old NWOBHM-er like me it was nostalgically interestesting. 
(I loved how Geezer was interviewed in a normal-ish room, while Iommi went for the full goth-horror set-up :lol: )

surely it's all about 2112 ... ? :blink: 

2112 is great but an A side of Tom Sawyer, Red Barchetta, YYZ and Limelight is as good as it gets!

And an even older classic from the first festival headliner...

The first and best progressive rock album. 

Ha ha...I think you must be my long-lost twin brother!

My favourite album is Chairs, Flairs and King Size Rizla, by Big P. Ness and the Oxymoronic Tortologists.

Won't lie, I did just google to see if that was actually an obscure band. Wouldn't have put it past you.

The album does exist, but there's only one copy and it's credited to The Mighty Quinn, but was de-issued when Big P.Ness objected.

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco,
This ain't no fooling around
No time for dancing, or lovey dovey,
I ain't got time for that now

 

Other people can go home
Everybody else can split
I'll be here all the time
No, I can never quit
