I don't know what mine is. What's YOURS?
mine I mean.
I got so obsessed with this album and it still gets regular spins, if I hade a cd changer it would of been in it for the past 4 years, no problem.
Gomez - Bring It On, which I had on repeat from age 14 - 16
Are you me?
Tbh though, mine's probably Doolittle.
but it's nowhere near 'Anarchy' by Chumbawamba. So there.
Daily Operation - Gang Starr
Out Of The Blue - ELO
Head on the Door - The Cure
Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me - The Cure
or maybe the Buzzcocks - Singles going steady
Both I used to listen to obsessively. Plus the buzzcocks was like the 2nd or 3rd album I ever got so it's had more time to be listened to more than anything else.
that it's The Holy Bible.
or Source, Tags and Codes by T.O.D.
Muse- Origin Of Symmetry
The Dears- No Cities Left
Oasis- Morning Glory
Maybe Meloncholy & the Infinite Sadness by Smashing Pumkins..
Talahasse by Mountain Goats definitely the most in the last few years..
or reign in blood by slayer
it was the first album I ever got, I would literally listen to it 6 times in a row and just listen, it blew my 13 year old mind...
could be great escape, maybe graceland, would be very interesting to know. In the last year or so its probably panda bear though.
in the last twenty years - I'm sure I played this enough times in my teens for it to come out on top
Secret Treaties - Blue Oyster Cult
the prodigy - experience
joy division - unknown pleasures
No doubt about it. I was quite happy to buy the Deluxe edition that came out a few years ago, because I'd pretty much worn out my original copy.
dog man star
first and last and always
back in black
since for about a year after it was first released I used to put it on every night before I went to sleep
Or Kid A
i like Kid A, but there was the three year gap, where i played this at least every week
I listened to that a lot when I first go it.
that, or deja by Brand new
The Holy Bible
Songs For The Deaf
Has been hammered very, very hard over the years.
or maybe spiderland
'Meat is Murder' by the Smiths, although 'Madonna' by Trail of Dead is not far off
wind in the wires - patrick wolf
kid a - radiohead
is it just me or do people tend to excessively overplay albums when they are younger??
When you've got more money and as a result, so many records, that excessive overplaying becomes a thing of the past. Plus, I think the older you get the more you tend to branch out into new genres etc
you're probably also a lot more melodramatic when you're, say, seventeen and like the smiths than when you're thirty and a bit more demure.. ;)
Although I can assure you I don't lack the neccessary melodrama to still listen to the Smiths.
The Velvet Underground's debut is the album i've listened to the most over the last few years. Heh, the opening notes of the celesta (if that's what it is?) on Sunday Morning can still tingle my spine after hundreds of listens. Utterly sublime.
Troubadour by JJ Cale
Dubnobassiwthmyheadman by Underworld
and Global Communication's 76:14 must be pretty close too as I've drifted off to sleep with that one playing countless times over the last 15 years or so
First CD I ever bought, my parents were a bit worried from the front cover. (him having boobs and all that).
Dog Man Star by Suede
Girls can tell by Spoon
I played it so much I thought it would wear out the disc. But in my defense, I did only own two CDs (the other was Limp Bizkit, Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavoured Water). Now I have lots of CDs so none of them get the extreme over-playing that that one once did.
And I haven't listened to it in a very long time.
I'm not really sure, but I have been listening to Hendrix ever since I was a youngun and he is never far away from my stereo.
but that doesn't count does it? Next one is Zen Arcade by Husker Du. In my lifetime I suspect it's either Smashing Pumpkins- Siamese Dream, or Rated R by Queens of the Stone Age. Maybe Fugazi- Repeater or At The Drive In - Vaya creeping in there too.
Glassjaw - EYEWTKAS
Refused - The shape of punk to come
The Smiths - The Smiths
The Wedding Present - Seamonsters
Saint Etienne - So Tough
Gorky's Zygotic Mynci - Bwyd Time (or Tatay)
When I was at school, I listened to "Pawn Hearts" by Van def Graaf Generator every day for 2 years.
Other than that:
"Another Green World" by Brian Eno
"The Faust Tapes"
"Larks' Tongues in Aspic" by King Crimson
"The Clones of Dr.Funkenstein" by Parliament
by Boards of Canada
gorillaz by gorillaz. its great
I never tire of it......
Probably one of
Idlewild - Hope Is Important
Pavement - Terror Twilight
Grandaddy - The Sophtware Slump
pulp different class
Minor Threat - Out of Step or You're Living All Ovr me by Dino Jr.
Smashing Pumpkins 'Siamese Dream'
Guns n Roses 'Appetite for Destruction'
Levellers 'Levelling the Land'
It's a close call between this lot:
Soundgarden - Superunknown
Pearl Jam - Versus
Nirvana - Nevermind
Alice in Chains - Dirt
Screaming Trees - Sweet Oblivion
Oasis - Definitely Maybe
QOTSA - Self-titled
Rage Against the Machine - Self-titled
I've listened most to Trouble Books -The United Colours of..
figures if its the debut album released on my label
and then so so surprisingly is Loveless.
teenage fanclub, with Super Furries- Radiator and REM- Out of Time coming in second and third
Although i still skip all neon like...
I loved that as a teenager. Good times.
others which are probably close:
Automatic for the People
Rust Never Sleeps
Although, Disco Volante may be pretty close. I'm pretty sure it's a Patton band though.
or Go Plastic or Maggot Brain or Birds of Fire. Fun House and The Stooges are probably in with a shout as well. Forever Changes as well. The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady too
in conclusion: dunno
or Placebo's first album, which i listened to solidly for about 2 years when i was 15/16
Infest by Papa Roach!
or Nevermind, or the Black Album.
Fountains Of Wayne - Fountains Of Wayne
The Stills - Logic Will Break Your Heart
Michael Jackson - Bad
East 17 - Steam (Did I just admit to that?!!!)
Blur - Modern Life is Rubbish (1996)
OK Computer (1998)
The National - Alligator (2006)
Automatic For The People or New Adventures In Hi-Fi...
On a slight tangent, does anybody find it a bit weird that - barring an accident with LastFM's servers - there's a good chance that all of us signed up and still using it in 20, 30, 40 years time will have a total record of most of what we've listened to our whole lives since we signed up? I quite like the idea, but it freaks me out a smidge as well...
i can never get bored of this record!
is this it?
You're Living All Over Me
Relationship of Command
I listened to these solidly for a good few year throughout school. Fuck yeah.
It's probably Blink 182 - Dude Ranch
probably Sonic Nurse
this year, probably Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.
Huey Lewis and The News
Tool - Aenima (given it regular spins since it came out)
Marillion - Script For A Jester's Tear (As a 14 year old with not many records this was on almost constantly!)
Honourable mentions to 100 Broken Windows, The Holy Bible, The Vertigo of Bliss and Figure 8.
Oh and Reuben- In Nothing We Trust must be up there despite it only coming out just over 12 months ago.
they never left the CD autochanger of my previous car until it went
from the pre-digital age probably one of U2 War/Boy/October - I listened to them every day for about four years
100 Broken Windows by Idlewild.
