Here is my other Top Ten list that I agonized over... and over. Although there are a few similarities from my Top Ten songs, there are also a few VERY different ones. The basis for judging on this list pertained to the album as a whole; from the first to the last song, I could play it continuously and not have to skip a single one. I'm sure you can agree with me that there a lot of albums that contain some of our favorite songs, but the songs that surround it are total shit. The reverse is also true, whereas some on this list may not contain any of my "all time favourite" songs, but as a whole piece of work, they are awesome. These albums I love, or have loved at one point or another during the life span of yours truly.
It will never be knocked off the first place podium in my books, never ever.
2. Tiny Music... Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop - STP
Although Interstate Love Song is on Purple, Tiny Music was the album that I enjoyed more... Big Bang Baby! Yeah!
3. Thriller - Michael Jackson
This was the first cassette tape I ever wore out, right at: Billie Jean is not my looo-wwahhhh waaaaa wuhhhhhhh.
4. Jagged Little Pill - Alanis Morissette
Would she go down on you in a theatre? 'Nuff said.
5. The Murmurs - The Murmurs
It's my second ultimate chick album. From cute ballads like Bumble Bees to a splash of angry PMS in You Suck, it's got everything a girl could want... just make sure there's no guys in the room while listening.
6. Gordon - Barenaked Ladies
Their sound was, and still is very different from most other music, with or without Steven Page. Personally, I think it's there use of the stand-up bass.
7. PUSA - Presidents of the United States of America
Good old fashion twanging red neck American fun. "Everybody wants to be Naked and Famous" They were true visionaries when they wrote that in '95.
8. The Immaculate Collection - Madonna
I didn't want to include soundtracks or greatest hits albums, but I couldn't leave the Queen out of my list, along with her classics!
9. Bring It On - Machine Gun Fellatio
If I need to listen to something to get me pumping, this is it, no question.
10. Masterpiece Theatre - Marianas Trench
It's my current favourite album and I'm playing the shit out of it, but it's early days still, so I couldn't place it any higher than tenth... only time will tell if it will move up the ladder.
Honorable mentions that I just couldn't leave out:
Thirsty Merc - Thirsty Merc
Funky Divas - En Vogue
Use Your Illusion 1 & 2 - Guns n' Roses
12 Stops & Home - The Feeling
Little Earthquakes - Tori Amos
You've Come A Long Way Baby - Fatboy Slim
Smash - The Offspring
Throwing Copper - Live
Internationalist - Powderfinger
Listen Without Prejudice - George Michael
