I seem to be on a roll
IYNSHO, what is your favorite album. The first thing you think of, and only one per customer. Duplicate orders will be mocked mercilessly.

Mine, it's easy. Quadrophenia. Townsend is one of the greatest songwriters of the rock era, and this is his masterpiece. The Who at their best outstrip pretty much everyone. It's powerful, brutal, touching, lovely. I think I'll listen to it right now.

Do I get suck up points for saying Some See the Glass Half Empty?

By the way, I found a recording of what I was asking you about the other day.

The Beatles- "Rubber Soul". But "Revolver" is right up there, too. Mid-period 1965-66 Beatles- getting thoughtful, experimenting with folk and the more exotic, plus the harmony work- there's pretty much nothing I like listening to more.

The first thing in my mind? Hounds of Love by Kate Bush. There is just so much attention to detail on that record that I hear something new every time I listen to it.

Elton John's "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road." So sue me, I don't care. :-) "Dark Side of the Moon" is up there, too.

nonononononono... those guys don't need groupies. They'll be totally *ruined* if people actually like them, much less go all fanboy/girl on them! They thrive on abuse, trust me. ;-)

I feel so common and so predictable with this one, but: Pink Floyd, The Dark Side of the Moon.

I bought 2 copies on vinyl because I really did wear out one, and it was the first non-classical music I bought after getting my first CD-player. (...classical being the only DDD productions in those days.)

Favorite album

The first Left Banke album, with Walk Away, Renee, and Pretty Ballerina. There are numerous other cuts that are worth the cost by themselves -- "Let Go of You Girl," "Something On My Mind," "She May Call You Up Tonight." There are two that are just a bit behind the rest of the album, "Evening Gown" (which nonetheless contains one of the best screams in rock'n'roll history) and "What Do You Know" (an attempt at going country). There is a Left Banke compilation album; I think it's called "There's Gonna Be a Storm," but it also includes the second album, which is as bad as the first one is good.

That first Left Banke album is astounding. I need to pull it out and give it a listen again.

Below the Salt by Steeleye Span (narrowly edging out other SSpan choices) You might have gotten another answer if I were in a different mood but I've decided to follow your rules today.

Have to go with Roll the Bones by Rush. Again, it's one of those "every track is good" albums (assuming you like Rush, which I really, really do), it's a good "gateway" album to introduce people to the band, and for those already familiar with the style of the band, it showcases how Rush adapts its style to current musical trends without altering their core identity.

I can't name one favorite, because as I would select it, others come to mind.
