My five favorite albums change from week to week, but these are probably always in the running:

The White Album, the Beatles
Lennon Legend, John Lennon (a great compilation)
Sticky Fingers, the Rolling Stones
Abbey Road, the Beatles
Exile on Main Street, Rolling Stones

It'll probably change next week.

Tough question.

Like most people, mine change constantly as I listen to different things. However, I'd have to say that the following 5 would almost always be in my top 10 . . .

1) Bireli Lagrene Gypsy Project
2) Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon
3) Velvet Underground with Nico Velvet Underground
4) John Coltrane A Love Supreme
5) Miles Davis A Kind of Blue

In no particular order:

Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
Led Zeppelin - IV (ZoSo)
Alice in Chains - Jar of Flies
Hootie and the Blowfish - Musical Chairs
Beatles - Magical Mystery Tour (my fav Beatles, for some reason)

Is this a list of what I think is the greatest of all time? No, not likely. For that, you have to take into account the ones that changed what people thought of music. These are simply the ones that I tend to wind up listening to over and over.

1) Red Hot Chili Peppers - Californication
2) Metallica - S & M (live and with the San Fransisco Symphony)
3) Led Zeppelin - II
4) Ozzy Osbourne - Tribute
5) Nickelback - Silver Side Up

Ones that didn't make it but are still great: Van Halen (their first one, self titled I believe), Mostly any Metallica, Led Zeppelin and Red Hot Chili Peppers or Nickelback album, SRV (Texas Flood and Couldn't Stand the Weather), Godsmack (The Other Side).

So I guess that pretty much gives you a good collection of my musical tastes, interestingly enough it's mostly hard rock stuff.

Carl Perkins!

Hey, Smoking Dog, I prefer the original Spectorized Let It Be, but I do like Naked's version of "Across the Universe" better (in part because it doesn't fiddle with the tape speed and sounds in the real key of D) and the de-Spectorized "Long & Winding Road" is much nicer. Otherwise, I think I'm just too imprinted with the original release (which I nearly included in my top 5 as well.) You have good taste in music, sir!

Perkins was a great musician. Love his stuff.
