I am GENUINELY drunk (caps lock is cruise control for cool, and the bold just means I am fucking heart attack serious) and in a good mood, which means I am rocking out to Little Feat. Going to crank a little Dead and then crash. It seems like it has been forever since we had one of these threads, but I want to have another just for shits and giggles.
Every time I listen to Little Feat, Waiting for Columbus, I think it is the most perfect album ever. If I had to choose five perfect albums, I would list them in the following order:
1.) Little Feat- Waiting for Columbus
2.) Frank Zappa- Fillmore East 1971
3.) Ben Folds Five- The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner
4.) Yes- Relayer
5.) Pink Floyd- Animals
Those are my top five. I’d like to add Guru- Jazzmatazz, and Alice in Chains Dirt is up there, but this list has been tight for me for years. Mind you, this has no Stones or Zeppelin, which are high on my list of first plays whenever I want to crank music. I’m not sure how stable my list is. Maybe some have gone up and down, but I really do think that these five have been solid for years.
So what are your top five perfect albums? And I don’t mean favorite albums. I mean perfect, complete, listen from start to end lp’s. Or do you people even know what a fucking lp is anymore? I just read that Sony is no longer making cassette decks, so YOU FUCKING KIDS GET OFF MY GOD DAMNED LAWN.
