Song in the Key of Life is an amazing album. AMAZING. Bestest track is easily Confusion, such an epic fusion track.

Haven't heard Adultery so dunno.

+1 for opeth

Ok now a LP album is above Justice? Which means since AJFA is your favorite Metallica album that a LP album is above Master of Puppets? WHAT THE FUCK!?

Other than that all fine choices.  ;D

39. Dog Fashion Disco - Adultery [2006]
Another roulette discovery this one, this time courtesy of UMH. I love a bit of dark, quirky music, but itís rare that something like that grabs me as much as this album has done. Itís just soÖ fun! It covers approximately one bajillion different styles over the course of the album, but despite that it feels consistent and, somehow, coherent. The riffing is enormous, and they have a real knack for writing catchy choruses. It also has a distinct Ďfilm noirí vibe in a few places that gives the album a very cinematic feel. It does, admittedly, have a ridiculous album title and concept, but I donít care, itís not like itíll affect me at all. Brb just going to kill a hooker.
YES! YES! YESSSSS!

FUCKING LOVE THIS ALBUM!

Seriously, I think they were going along the same train of thought as Conor Oberst with this album and decided to leave all of the bad off it. Which is good because all that's left is the amazing.

As for the ridiculous album title and concept, it's all done tongue-in-cheek. Like most of their stuff really. BUT I'M SURE YOU ALREADY KNEW THAT.

Dog Fashion Disco - I've only heard one song of theirs but if Harry's love for them is any indicator then they're the best band in the world

Definitely do that thing, it's just so... cool. Also go watch videos of him playing live on youtube, he was such a legend. There's a great vid of him and Keith Emerson have a jazz-piano-off, and Emerson is great but just tries so hard and puts so much energy in, while Peterson just sits back and doesn't give a shit. It's amazing. :lol

BOOM!


38. Nellie McKay - Pretty Little Head [2006]
For those who donít know her stuff, Nellie McKay is a really amazing jazz/pop/indie artist whose music is often quite hard to categorise. For me, this album is where itís at Ė it has some really sweet cutesie songs, some laid-back jazzy songs, and some really damn depressing songs as well. The variety is tremendous, and she can take it all on, writing in all these different styles with ease. Her other albums are pretty much as good, but this one stands out as having the most strong material.  She also has an incredible ability to flit between major and minor keys like itís nobodyís business, which is quite rare outside of classical music. Amazing stuff!

37. Radiohead Ė OK Computer [1997]
This is easily one of the oldest albums that I got when it came out and still listen to fairly regularly, and for good reason because itís an amazing album, and in my opinion remains Radioheadís best despite In Rainbows coming very close! I think the thing that really stands out is how much atmosphere the songs have Ė thereís quite a lot of variety, but a consistent tone and vibe that really unites the songs together. Plus the songs themselves are terrific; slightly experimental but still very accessible, and with a ton of energy that exceeds that of all their other albums.

36. Danny Elfman - Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas [1993]
I feel like this will be a surprising entry, but I hope itís not because itís simply fantastic. In the context of the film, itís an amazing soundtrack, but even on its own itís just as great! The style mostly follows that of a cinema musical I guess, but with a darker and quirkier tone, like a Disney soundtrack on drugs. The music is clever, as are the lyrics, and the vocal performances of some of the lead characters really make it what it is. Danny Elfman singing the part of Jack in particular (which I only found out a couple of years ago) has such a wonderful baritone. I have loved the movie since I first saw it, but itís only been in the last few years that Iíve realised how much I love the music as well!

It has never been a favorite Radiohead-album for me personally, but objectively speaking - it's probably their best.

Well, it is a very great album with only one weak moment on it.
Quality-wise it's obviously fantastic, I just happen to prefer Radiohead's electronic (and latter) albums.

Nothing wrong with that.

That's totally fine.  My two favorites are In Rainbows and Kid A as well.  I think Ariich and I were referring to this month's popular discussion topic: "album X is my favorite but album 'Ariich's a limey tosser' is objectively the best" that you decided to bring up.  AGAIN. >:(
