In Reply to: RE: Example of the perfect album posted by raya on January 22, 2017 at 18:57:57
Since several other obvious choices have been mentioned, 'Dark Side of the Moon' cannot be left out of this conversation. It never gets old and I've purchased numerous copies in various formats, including quad back in the day and multichannel SACD most recently.
Frank Zappa's 'Apostrophe' is another one that I've bought several times and will never get tired of hearing or ever get the urge to skip a song.
For something far more modern, I'd like to mention an Opeth album that was largely panned by the band's longtime fans. I love 'Pale Communion' and it's one of those start to finish albums - not a weak track in the bunch, IMO (even has one that reminds me of the Allman Brothers).
In fact, the LP version has the title listed as Apostrophe(')
Just yankin' your chains ;-)
Frank at his swarthiest, don't you think?
all the best,
I didn't bother adding the actual apostrophe, but yes, every version I have does have the (') on the cover. I heard 'Don't Eat the Yellow Snow' on the radio - laughed and loved it. I bought my first copy of the record a couple of days later, wore it out and bought another one, repeat, repeat... I also had one in quad, along with many other Zappa records. I bought the first release of the CD, then the AU20. Note my screen name - wazoo, as in 'The Grand Wazoo' (Frank's 'wheelchair' album, and yet another masterpiece). I'll have to count them, but I have somewhere around 90 releases on CD (and they keep coming from the vault), but I think my prized possession on things Zappa is the blu-ray of Roxy - the greatest Mothers lineup, IMO, at their finest. I really miss that Swarthy motherf'r (as Franks said - code for great musician), but Dweezil has done a magnificent job of keeping his father's music alive live (still doing what can't be done on stage anymore).
that was my very first album - awesome!
