    What are your 10 favourite albums of all time?

    Mine would be:
    The Fool & Exquisite Corpse (EP) - Warpaint (I know it's cheating to count them as one but they are both too perfect to have a first and second)
    Midnight Boom - The Kills
    Knives Don't Have Your Back - Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton
    For Emma, Forever Ago - Bon Iver
    Teen Dream - Beach House
    Los Angeles - Flying Lotus
    Grow Up & Blow Away - Metric
    Crooks & Lovers - Mount Kimbie
    Bellow - Sister Crayon
    Smother - Wild Beasts

    Also throw in some Arthur Russell.

    That should totally be in every ones top ten- it's a magnificent album.

    Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
    Pink Floyd - Meddle
    Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick
    Jethro Tull - Minstrel in the Gallery
    Genesis - Selling England by the Pound
    Genesis - Trick of the Tail
    Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
    Yes - Fragile
    King Crimson - In the Court of the Crimson King
    Kraftwerk - Radio-Activity

    In no particular order. Pretty much sums it up.

    dug this up cos it's interesting to see how my tastes changed in 6 months.
