Name one album folk should listen to at least once before they die.

Just because it was the first thing off the top of my head, i'm going with [quote]Led Zeppelin ~ Houses of the holy[/quote]

Dire Straits- Brothers In Arms
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
[@417364,Ozymandias] Yep. Might be just me but i somehow rate 'earlier' Dire Straits rather than 'later'.

I'm sure that's an unfair assessment, maybe just me.
[@417364,Ozymandias] Nice one that!
Puckish · 36-40, T
Dark side of the moon- Pink Floyd
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
[@585669,Puckish] Totally !

Although 'Animals' 'The division bell' and 'The wall' are also worth a listen.
FreeSpirit1 · 51-55, F
London Calling

Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
[@157515,FreeSpirit1] Currently ranked #8 on the Rolling Stone top 500 albums chart !

Will probably annoy the Punk purist since having started from a Punk perspective, this album branches out into other genres including RnB; Reggae; Pop; Rock and maybe one or two others !

But yes ! Excellent choice !
FreeSpirit1 · 51-55, F
[@448576,Picklebobble2] That's why it's so good, name another Punk group wbo put out an album as good as that...not many
Rooster · M
One more from the road!
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
[@527571,Rooster] Yes. Probably one of the best live albums too !
JesseInTX · 51-55, M
[@527571,Rooster] you stole my thunder. One of the best ever. Have you picked up this new release yet?

Marvin Gaye - What's going on
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
[@1190214,TUFKAL] Yes it marks a specific era in history because of what the songs reflect in their lyrics !
SW User
[@448576,Picklebobble2] Still pretty relevant really
Dlrannie · 31-35, F
The Velvet Underground and Nico 🙂
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
[@324037,Dlrannie] Good choice ! Quite different from what a lot of other folk are suggesting !
Dlrannie · 31-35, F
[@448576,Picklebobble2] Haha and released 23 years before I was born - blame my Dad for my choice 😂😂

Beatles White
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
[@449448,AlexaiSchlomokov] Good choice and many might argue their best work !
Apparently they spent a month in India together prior to this album’s release (The Maharishi era)
Guns N Roses - Appetite for Destruction

Bill Withers at Carnegie Hall are my faves.
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
[@372543,Vivaci] Anything Bill Withers is worth a listen. And yes, 'Appetite for destruction' is probably GnR best work.
Omg yea!!! And I love your taste in music, PB. So good choice of yours too. 👌🎶😍[@448576,Picklebobble2]

Tom Waits—Blue Valentine

A Tribe Called Quest—The Low End Theory

[@334441,summersong] I love Blue Valentine
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
[@334441,summersong] Both those are good examples i think.
pentacorn · F
Siouxsie and The Banshees - Tinder Box
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
[@664411,pentacorn] Good choice ! Have you heard their earlier work ?
Tinder Box to me sounds far more polished and 'grown up' if you see what i mean ?
pentacorn · F
thanks, [@448576,Picklebobble2] yes, i've heard it all, even if it's been a long minute since hearing most of their works. this album just really resonated with me when it came out. i was encouraging everyone, and their brother, to have a listen, ad nauseam, lol i still dig hearing the whole album at once. it's almost like one long transcendent song to me.

Track list
1 Carnival Of The Animals 2:14
2 Ebbtide 3:07
3 Storm And Thunder 6:25
4 In The Mountains 3:03
5 Song Of The Marching Children
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
[@356742,SirfurryanimalWales] There's something vaguely familiar about the vocal style of this lead singer.....Reminiscent of Grace Slick (Jefferson Airplane) perhaps
Sirfurryanimal · 61-69, M
[@448576,Picklebobble2] jerney Kaagman is her name.Earth and Fire were not big in Britain.
Bastille - Bad Blood 😍

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F90Cw4l-8NY?list=OLAK5uy_kxqfY3iEuebkoPFwualeqPsWiaDkqwiO8]
Hmmm...maybe. It’s just pages from our history, so there’s a bit of realism in it. [@448576,Picklebobble2]
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
[@372543,Vivaci] Yeah, i get it. 😉
I knew you would! 💙🤗[@448576,Picklebobble2]
eli1601 · 70-79, M
Houses of the Holy or Physical Graffiti?
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
[@10531,eli1601] Fairplay !
Were they albums you 'discovered' or were they.....(hate this expression) part of the zeitgeist of the time ? 😖
eli1601 · 70-79, M
[@448576,Picklebobble2] Actually, I was asking since Houses of the Holy, the song, was on the Physical Graffiti album.
Purple Rain- Prince
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
[@406205,InOtterWords] 24 consecutive weeks at #1 on The Billboard charts and widely regarded as Prince's seminal work.
AND annoyed Tipper Gore and the [i]Parents Music Resource centre[/i] sufficiently that THAT was the first album to have [b]Parental Advisory[/b] stickers slashed across it !
[@448576,Picklebobble2] that was because of Darling Nikki

The album is a work of art
eli1601 · 70-79, M
The Beach Boys - Holland
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
[@10531,eli1601] Listening now...
