I would have to say Shawn Colvin's "Fat City" is just about my favorite album in my 800+ collection. It gets as much play, if not more, than any other.
searching for that elusive, "perfect" sound.

Super easy question... "Dulcinea" (1994) from Toad the Wet Sprocket I've heard this album probably a gazillion times, and I can still listen and be completely enveloped in it. Although any Toad the Wet Sprocket album is incredibly good, this would have to be my personal favorite.

It depends on my mood (and I have about 2500 CDs) but if you held a gun to my head I would say Genesis The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway.

Ah, one of my favorite pieces. I'll need to keep this album in mind when I have the money to buy classical music once again.


I really don't know how some of you are picking a favorite album. It is impossible to choose between King Crimson's Discipline, Charles Mingus' Tijuana Moods, John Coltrane's A Love Supreme, Dream Theater's Scences From a Memory, Frank Zappa's Joe's Garage, etc and so forth and onward.

Its easy. The album I picked "Company of Wolves" was from a time about 10 years ago where I got dumped by a gal I really liked. Instead of doing the standard options of drinking myself into oblivion, stalking her, begging her to come back, I immersed myself into music and this particular album stands out as something that helped me get through that period. So my pick is due to sentimental reasons.

The group itself my have been your standard hair band, but the music is deep in the blues and has some good classic guitar riffs.

But if i'm picking another album that I like to boogie too, smoke a cigar and enjoy a few fingers of B&B, Swingerhead - She Could Be A Spy. This is a great swing album and I highly recommend this one if your a swinger baby!!

"The Dark Side of the Moon" Pink Floyd, 1973
Tell me what you regard as your greatest strength, so I will know how best to undermine you; tell me of your greatest fear, so I will know which I must force you to face; tell me what you cherish most, so I will know what to take from you; and tell me what you crave, so that I might deny you.

Back Door Men by the Shadows of Knight, a great 60s Garage Band from the Chicago suburbs. This album was the follow up to their big hit, Gloria. BDM has an incredible psychodelic version of Hey Joe, a song popularized by The Leaves and later by Jimi Hendrix.
