Albums you always return to.

What albums would you always return too, no matter what age they are, or how long it is since you have listened to them?

For me it would be Iron Maidens, Live After Death album. First heard it when I was 14 (22 years ago :faint:) and still enjoy it as much now as I did on the first listen.

Another would be Marillions Script for a Jesters Tear. Was 16 when I 1st heard this and still feels like yesterday

A more recent album I keep listening to over and over would be Ryan Adams, Gold. Every song just does it for me.

So what albums does everyone keep returning to and playing over and over again?

Radiohead - the Bends (when they weren't so far up their own *****)
Pink - Mizunderstood
Costello - This Years Model

As the title of the thread suggests these are proper end to end albums (no fillers). Some of the suggestions are classic 4-5 good tracks the rest is rubbish. London Calling is a terrible album apart from 3-4 tracks (and I love the Clash).
Joshua Tree is another classic half brilliant album - people listen to the first five tracks which are epic, but then the rest is pretty dire.

Music is a bit like religion IMO.

But my taste rocks :rock:

"Give 'em enough rope" is a far better Clash album, and that's not an opinion, it's a fact!

Be Bop Deluxe - Modern Music....did that have Do You Dream in Colour?

I agree and add in The Wall and Animals, I never tire of listening to DSoM and The Wall. I also enjoy a comprehensive Bowie Catalogue and dig into it on a regular basis.

Me and the Mrs have a varied collection and in the main we tend to enjoy each others collections too. She is a big Genesis fan, which I also enjoy.

Loads of 80s greatest hits, bit of Craftwerk and early Human League too through to Bob Marley.

Some great Albums in the list.

Totally agree. 'Forgotten sons' was in my MP3 mix on the way to golf yesterday. Must have been the reason I shot a PB 3 over par!!

Other fave albums:

Bryan Adams - Reckless
