My friend, I'm deinitely not too hip. I love all those albums, particularly Sgt. Pepper and Physical Graffiti. To be 100% honest, they don't hit me quite the way that the 5 I listed do. I think they're incredible and if I went top 10 then Physical Graffiti would be in there. I'd choose Abbey Road over Sgt Pepper.

I know what your saying, I tried to make mine out of music from a longer time period.

Yours all takes place in a what? 15 year span?

Almost everyone has chosen music from a really brief time period, as if to say that good music was only made from 1965-1985. Yet we have at least 500 years of music to draw from and people chose...

Basically the question is usually like this "What music from your teen years is best". Because that's the answer your getting like it or not.

Meh. I simply headed over to last.fm and copied my most listened to albums. (But I excluded Pink Flag because the songs on that are almost all less than 2 minutes in length.) So I listed my favourites, and probably put less thought into it than everyone else. There's no need to reflect the taste of someone else in my list.

No, we were asked to list our favourite albums. The album had its most vibrant era in exactly 1965-85. Well, I picked one from 1989. It has pretty much died since then.

I was born in 1985, so 4/5 albums I listed are older than I.

Jesus, this is ridiculously hard.

Death Cab for Cutie - Transatlanticism
Los Campesinos! - Hold On Now Youngster...
Grandaddy - The Sophtware Slump
Arcade Fire - Funeral
The Pipettes - We Are The Pipettes

That's this week's five, anyhow. There's not very much in the way of change from week to week, but these are certainly the go-to records for me over the past few years.

You'd think so but there are many, many great albums made of the music that was written in the pre-ceeding 500 years that it is foolish to call yourself an music lover and ignore them.

Unless you guys are all just reading the sheet music or something.

Five favorite written scores is next I presume?

On top of that many great albums were recorded pre 65, just not in a format you'd recognize but today they are sold as "records" and people know them that way.

Whenever I see a question about favourite albums, I always feel that the only fair way to answer it is to list albums that I've been replaying on and off for years and years. It favours older material, but otherwise my favourites would change from week to week.

So bearing that in mind, here's my top five that have kept on returning to the playlist for a decade or more:

Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense
Underworld - Dubnobasswithmyheadman
Spiritualized - Lazer Guided Melodies
Planxty - The Well Below the Valley
The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground & Nico

It's not a bad subset of my musical tastes, really although more recently I've picked up a taste for hip-hop and reggae.

The things you assume about people over the net... I never would have guessed.

So go ahead and open a thread titled F:ATtie Favorite Fives - Symphonies.

I really wouldn't call Beethoven's 5th "an album", despite the fact that it's sold as one.

I wouldn't list peanut butter and jelly sandwich as one of my favourites sold in a can either.

I would not eat that.

Sure I wouldn't call Beethoven's 5th an album either. It's a score.

But in the 20th century a pretty large number of great recording artists commited much of the music to record, intended as a record, and indeed even involving concept record idea's as well. The music takes on two lives at this point. The original score, and the many different interpretations.

I'm just teasing really. Let's face it, no one likes that stuff unless it's drowned behind a movie or video game.

Not to mention the toal lack of Jazz.. which is just more surprising to me. I didn't know that Jazz was so unloved I guess.

I didn't think for hours, so I might of missed something, but here are my faves in no particular order.

The Beatles - Abbey Road (glad to see some others that agree)
Led Zeppelin - Self Titled first album
Modest Mouse - Good News for People Who Love Bad News
Weezer - Pinkerton
Nirvana - Unplugged

Also, I can't say that Fleetwood Mac are one of my favorites, but Rumors is a very solid album and I disagree that they are what "is wrong" with the classics.

Shit, I blew it on Nirvana Unplugged. That would probably fall in just after 5 though. I knew I'd forget shit. I forgot that and Alice in Chains Unplugged which is like listening to a man give his own eulogy.
