Okay, I'm sure "what's your one all-time favorite album?" thread has probably been done a million times. But for my own purposes I want to compile a list of albums, recommended by other music connoisseurs. What I'm looking for is not necessarily your favorite album, but ONE album (or perhaps one CD, one SACD, one DVD-A and one vinyl LP), you could recommend that is just great music, not for the kind of music it is, but because it is just infectious, enrapturing, striking, stunning, marvelous, miraculous, wonderous music, because of how it is mixed, because of the energy and sincerity of the artist(s), or just because it is great music for music's sake - an album that you perhaps bought blindly (like on somebody's recommendation) and it just blew you away. My one recommendation on CD, for example, would be Best of Lari White. I saw this CD recommended in (I think) Sound & Vision and I bought it at (again, I think) Half.com w/o even knowing who she was. Now, I'm not a huge fan of country music, but this is just a great CD. Punchy bass, she's a hell of a good singer and the energy driving the music just makes me want to MOVE! In any case, I'm open just about any kind of music, with the possible exceptions of hip-hop and opera. I love classical, jazz (especially acoustic jazz), bluegrass (and any permutation thereof), rock, ethnic music and even some pop. So, BRING IT ON!!
