    OK - just like the games one - post your top 3 must listen albums, the loose genre they fall into, and also the best recent albums you've heard.

    I'll probably do a HipHop specific one, as it was 'my thing' in the 90s, despite being pretty dead these days.

    HipHop alltime:

    Nas - Illmatic
    Pharoahe Monch - Internal Affairs
    Mobb Deep - The Infamous

    last 3 years:

    Nas & Damien Marley - Distant relatives

    - other than that - no fucking idea, as I haven't bothered listening to the rehashed shite.

    Anyone else!?

    The past 3 years? I think only two have *really* grabbed me to get massively repeated play and to still enjoy them as much, if not even more each time:

    PJ Harvey- Let England Shake
    Dexys- One Day I'm going to Soar


    Ever? There's far too many to choose from, but today itmight as well be:

    Neil Young - Harvest
    Fugazi- Repeater
    Public Enemy- It takes a nation of millions...

    Ever - Too many to choose, perhaps...

    Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd,
    Sgt Pepper - The Beatles
    Nevermind - Nirvana.
    The most boringly predictable list ever.

    OMG! Stalking you!

    Let's see, according to the data iTunes keeps:

    David Bowie - Diamond Dogs
    Bauhaus - In The Flat Field
    Modern Lovers - Roadrunner, Roadrunner

    I thought my tastes were a bit 'heavier' but iTunes can't lie.

    Why? Are you going to buy them all? Or are you making a list?

    So because you don't know other peoples' choices, that makes them pretentious shit that they're only listing because no one has heard, huh?

    Interesting. :D

    This isn't the comments thread, it's a discussion forum. If dog bot has misunderstood then why not correct him intelligently and articulately?

    It's a fascinating subject. Can something only be in one of these lists if they've appeared at the top of every populist publications list since time began or can hidden gems be named?

    Well this didn't take long to degenerate into the classic argument over being people being "pretentious".
  • Deleted user 24 September 2012 12:41:19
    That sounds like the response a child would give to a teacher.
