Motley Crue, Metallica, VolBeat, Guns and Roses, Eminem, Beastie Boys. After these came to mind I had to stop and think about who would be next and decided to just leave it with six and not in any particular order.

I don't know why, but this is always a fun question to answer.

Favourite Artists:

AC/DC

Queen

Otis Redding

Beatles

David Bowie

Fleetwood Mac

John Williams

Howard Shore

Pink Floyd

Red Hot Chili Peppers

I'd usually never have thought to put two composers in there, but it just occurred to me that I listen to and enjoy the stuff these guys make as much or more than almost anyone else on this list. 

 

Favourite Albums:

Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars - David Bowie

Rumours - Fleetwood Mac

Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd

Thrill of the Arts - Vulfpeck

No Need To Argue - The Cranberries

Abbey Road - The Beatles

Pet Sounds - The Beach Boys

In Between Dreams - Jack Johnson

Demon Days - Gorillaz

Hands Built By Robots - Newton Faulkner

 

I am surprised that so few of my favourite artists have albums on this list. If I included Greatest Hits albums then Queen, AC/DC and Otis Redding certainly would have. And vice versa, I'm sure artists like Vulfpeck or Gorillaz might feature on my favourite artists list if I had gotten around to listening to more of their music properly.

Bands: Top ten just totally and completely unranked.

Iron "Fucking" Maiden

Pink Floyd

Rush

King Crimson

Porcupine Tree

Alice In Chains

Agalloch

Dream Theater

Led Zeppelin

Opeth

Albums: Limited to only one release per band. Kinda sorta ranked. I guess? Now featuring pretentious write-ups! 

1. Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon - THE album that you should point to when making the case of an entire albums worth of music versus just a few 'hits.' A tremendous journey from start to finish.

2. Agalloch - The Mantle - A truly fantastic journey of an album. Perfect for listening to on a cold, winter day. It will transport you to desolate, snowy forests high in distant mountains, places bereft of the pesky intrusions of civilization and modernity. 

3. Porcupine Tree - Signify - The last of Porcupine Tree's more psychedelic output, Signify is arguably their best (argued by me, primarily). Mixing the same spacey and Pink Floyd-influenced sound found on their prior releases with more electronic and rock styles, Signify is the Porcupine Tree that I always seem to come back to over and over again.

4. Dream Theater - Awake - The Dream Theater album I always come back to and probably the last one I really got into. Less focused on mere technicality compared to most of their other albums, there's a strong undercurrent of emotion in this album that hasn't really been featured much since and, as a result, Awake often feels like an aberration in their discography, a love-it-or-hate-it release with no room in between. Me? I fucking love it.

5. Rush - A Farewell To Kings - This is Rush at their finest, incorporating both their hard rock beginnings with their more progressive outlook (at the time) into one cohesive whole. A Farewell To Kings may not be a "journey type of album" but it is one fantastic song after another. 

6. Queensrÿche - Operation: Mindcrime - The best rock opera of all time (sorry Tommy...)? Maybe. But it's easily my favorite as it seamlessly blends both storytelling and music into one cohesive whole. Too often rock operas struggle telling a story whilst also writing good songs, but Mindcrime balances it perfectly. 

7. Godspeed You! Black EmperorF♯ A♯ ∞ - I believe Godspeed were once described as "music for the end of the world." Morose, despondent, and utterly apocalyptic, F♯ A♯ ∞ is a journey through fire-wracked streets, abandon cities, and the last vestiges of a crumbling society.

8. Opeth - Still Life - The best and almost perfect combination of Opeth's heavy-as-balls riffing married with their softer and more atmospheric sound.

9. Led Zeppelin - Houses Of The Holy - Most people would probably pick IV (or maybe the debut, or II, or even Physical Graffiti, but not III, never III) as the best or their favorite Zeppelin album, but some of us crazy people prefer Houses of the Holy. A transitional album for the band, Houses saw Zeppelin moving away from a sound strictly dominated by hard rock and blues and into something more experimental. Despite liking songs on their other albums more, Houses to me is the one Zeppelin album that just flows perfectly from start to finish.

10. The Mars Volta - Frances The Mute - Absolute madness in audio form. Jazz, progressive rock, and latin music all combined together in an LSD trip in audio form. Absolutely and completely pretentious and over-the-top, but that's the appeal.

Cool list!  Curious about you're album choices from RHCP, dogfighters, and POTUSoA.  I would love to hear why you chose those records.  

 

All solid but would have gone with Blood sugar and then the first albums from the other two
