I heard a segment on CBC recently telling me that the album was dead and that it has been replaced by the superior playlist. I love a good playlist do not get me wrong, however listening to a whole album is also an amazing way to experience music. I have decided for this list to share my favourite albums of all time (I do count greatest hits compilations as albums):
Matthew Good Band – The Audio of Being – Ps. life goal is to learn to play the guitar enough to do Matthew Good Band acoustic covers…it was hard for me to pick just one album, I love love love love all of them.
I am not sure if these are connected or not (most likely they are) but all of my selections are of albums I had as physical tapes or CD’s. I do feel the method of consumption does have something to do with the popularity of the playlist. I get a real nostalgic feeling when I listen to the above as an album instead of just my favourite songs! Friends who know I am a Lady Gaga super fan: I couldn’t pick one as my favourite so I didn’t add an album (I also tend to listen to Lady Gaga as an artist on shuffle instead of album specific). Please share your favourites with me!
