    Who the hell are these humourless cunts?

    IT WAS A JOKE AND I'M NOT DROPPING IT UNTIL YOU RECOGNISE IT WAS A JOKE AND ALSO A BUNCH OF OTHER STUFF.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Hmmm - three that always seem to remain on my (very limited) MP3 player:

    Nick Drake: Pink Moon

    XTC: English Settlement

    The Smiths: The Queen is Dead

    edit: big apologies to Joy Division and Talking Heads. :/

    I love Funkadelic, but the version of "Free Your Mind" I own (Westbound Records CDSEW 012, no bonus tracks) is nigh unlistenable, terrible mastering. Does the semi-recent rerelease sound much better ?

    Oh yes, quite a way ahead.
    If only for the cover of Fahey's Dry Bones in the Valley, or Kevin Drumm's "guitar solo" at the beginning of Our exquisite replica of Eternity.
    Or its extraordinary array of "guest stars" (Tony Conrad !).
    It's also very well structured : after the opening, you get two sequances of three "songs" that reflect each other : for instance "Hello Spiral"'s harsh electronics are counterparts to "Dry Bones"' acoustic revery (if you will). Both then segue to repetitive, minimalist figures.
    I love that record !

    Nice. I haven't played that one in a long time. I will revisit it. Tbh, Crookt is the only one that gets regular plays any more. Clearly, an error on my part. :)

    My version is pretty damn clean, it is one of the rereleases.

    For albums of the last few years I have to vouch for Caravan Palace's "Le' Caravan"

    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.

    Why? Are you going to buy them all? Or are you making a list?
    To be honest - yes - I'm going to 'listen' to most of these, and buy my favourites on either Vinyl or CD depending on when I buy them over the next 10 years.

    I'm not kidding. I want the best of music (that I enjoy the sound of). I already need to get the best of pre 1980s music - I've not heard a lot of what came along before I was born, but I also need to catch up on the best of the past few years, as I've not been listening, and also buy the best of the stuff I heard as a kid.

    This is great so far, guys, so keep going.

    I may well post other 'Top 3s', under a different heading, as the 3 I posted are pretty hardcore Eastcoast 90s HipHop. There's obviously a lot more to music than that.

    Last 3 years

    Gorillaz - Plastic Beach
    Doves - Kingdom of Rust
    Breakbot - By Your Side (this just came out last week, but I swear, there isn't a single song on it that I don't like, which is a real rarity when it comes to albums)

    Not sure about best 3 albums ever, but Muse would definitely be in there somewhere... probably Absolution or Black Holes and Revelations (yes, I was a huge fan of BHaR :p)

    edit: OK, I think I've made my mind up. Top 3 of all time.

    Muse - Absolution
    Gorillaz - Gorillaz (their first album)
    Daft Punk - Discovery

    I don't listen to these albums as often as I used to, but they definitely played a huge part in shaping my musical taste.

    Mine will be quite personal to me and unlikely to be of the same value to others... I also like so many genres that choosing three is almost a "pick any 3 from 300"... but:

    Last 3 years:
    Deftones - Diamond Eyes
    Ou Est Le Swimming Pool - The Golden Year
    Skindred - Union Black

    Ever:
    Deftones - White Pony
    Incubus - Make Yourself
    Idlewild - 100 Broken Windows
