To narrow it down is so impossible:

In The Falling Dark
--Bruce Cockburn
Blood on the Tracks--Bob Dylan (as well as the complete album as covered by Mary Lee's Corvette)
Graceland--Paul Simon
Harmony--Gordon Lightfoot
Live 1969--Simon and Garfunkel (it's neat to hear Art Garfunkel introduce their "new" songs)

honourable mentions:
Night Moves--Bob Seger
Solo Acoustic v.1--Jackson Browne
Up To Here--Tragically Hip
A Rush of Blood to the Head--Coldplay
Perfect Time--Maire Brennan

This list will probably morph into something different in about 3 months.

This is a tough one, but I'll give it a shot. I'm going with 3 categories...

Top 5 "Favorite" (listen to often)

1. Pearl Jam - Vitalogy
2. Eric Clapton - From the Cradle
3. White Stripes - De Stijl
4. Rush - Moving Pictures
5. Soundgarden - Badmotorfinger

Top 5 Lifetime albums (albums that changed music or life for me)
1. Pearl Jam - Ten
2. Guns & Roses - Appetite for Destruction
3. Jimi Hendrix - Are You Experienced?
4. Black Crowes - Shake Your Money Maker
5. Dream Theater - Images & Words

Top 5 Live albums
1. Rush - Snakes & Arrows Live (although Exit...Stage Left is truly a classic)
2. Jimi Hendrix - Live at Fillmore East
3. Iron Maiden - Live After Death
4. Nirvana - Unplugged & Alice in Chains - Unplugged (tie because I just can't pick between them)
5. Pearl Jam - Madison Square Garden July 08, 2003 (this was a tough choice since I have 26 PJ bootlegs plus Live on Two Legs and Unplugged live albums)

Well, I went back and looked at what I entered last year. Mood dependant is quite accurate. My list, this very second.

Stripped - Rolling Stones
Bat Out Of Hell - Meatloaf
Exile On Main Street - Stones
Allman's Filmore East album
Missing: Presumed having a good time - The Notting Hillbillies.

...and last year's. Looks like a couple stayed on.

Darkness On The Edge Of Town - Springsteen (Am I the only one who liked that album?
Bat Out Of Hell - Meat Loaf
The Wall - Pink Floyd (hated that album for almost 20 years. Love it now. Odd)
Get Your Wings - Aerosmith
I reserve the right to change to a different 5 tomorrow. It is totally mood dependant.

Roy, who is this Rolling Stones band you keep talking about? :lol: Just kidding.

I'll have to give a think on what my new list would be. Last time I stuck with only those groups most people would have heard before. I'll need to put the real list (of this point in time and will change by next month) together.


Edit:
Wait a minute...I just noticed this

Took me 25 years to get over it. Now I play 4 songs from that album. (Comfortably Numb, Hey You, Mother and Nobody Home)

In the mid Eightys i got really burned out on radio and commercial rock. during that time i pretty much just bought my music and listened to my home system. these (and all those closely related) were a few of my staples.

"It'll Shine When It Shines" ~The Ozark Mountain Daredevils
Image
"Men from Earth" ~ The Ozark Mountain Daredevils
Image
"A New World Record" ~ ELO
Image
"Led Zeppelin IV" ~ Led Zeppelin
Image
"Rancho Texicano" ~ ZZ Top
i picked this one because it had all of the songs i loved.
