    Homogenic is impeccably mixed for headphones as well. I had a box set with 5.1 dvd mixes of her albums from Debut through Volta, and that was really, really awesome to experience as well.

    It was because of Bjork that I discovered Coachella in '02. Saw her doing Vespertine and other awesome songs 5 mos pregnant with a small orchestra. Totally amazing. I've seen her 3 times since, but super bummed I never got to any of the residences tour in 2012/13.
    Vespertine is still by far my favorite, but I have to agree that Homogenic is super heady and fabulous for headphones or a night drive (we did on our way down to Indio back then!) - the sound is just sooooo different when it surrounds you. Volta 5.1 was fun to experience in a soundbooth. Try it if you get the chance.
    Biophilia is still growing on me though.

    I am also a big fan of a lot of her single packages with the myriad remixes and the live boxset. SO MUCH BJORK

    I've never been able to get into Bjork. I listened to Post and liked a few songs, but it didn't make me want to listen to her other albums.

    Having said that, I saw her at Pitchfork Fest last year and she really impressed me - her voice was a powerhouse.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    She really is quite the artist. I love her collaborations for her music videos, her ideas for her performances, right down to her costumes and make up.

    I didn't see that discussion until just now. I'd also like to endorse Disraeli Gears by Cream, as well as the two Rufus Wainwright albums. Don't ask me for songs, though, as I'm feeling lazy right now.

    Actually, I'll give you one Wainwright song that I liked that stuck out to me. It's called "Go or Go Ahead" off of Want One.

    Damn, that sounds awesome. Her 2002 performance of All Is Full Of Love is my favorite off the Coachella DVD. Will seek out those 5.1 versions.

    There are a bunch more albums on your lists that I like/love but can't adequately defend.

    I probably had close to a hundred Bjork live performance bootlegs on my old iPod. I saw that Beats has a playlist of her live performances, but it didn’t include some of my favorites. I really like that she rearranges the music for her concerts so much sometimes that she could release them as a separate album.

    Guys, there's a thread for Bjork. Unless you're posting about how awesome Meatloaf is, lets keep it default in here. Because Meatloaf is awesome.

I have two lists, one of things I'm skeptical of but maybe there's some value there, and another of shit I've made my mind up on already and just don't care about. I'm mostly looking for people to make the case for any of the albums on the first list (or if they suggested the wrong album by an otherwise decent act), but if there's something that you really want to try to change my mind on off the second list (excluding Green Day, Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against The Machine, Pink Floyd and Oasis, I already know there's supporters here and I'm just not that interested), go for it.


    Maybe?:
    o Travis – Man Who
    o Crosby, Stills & Nash – Crosby, Stills & Nash
    o Still, Stephen – Stephen Stills (1st Album)
    o Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – Déjà vu
    o ZZ Top – Tres Hombres
    o Boston – Boston (1st Album)
    o ZZ Top – Eliminator
    o Waterboys – Fisherman’s Blues
    o Jamiroquai – Emergency on Planet Earth
    o Pet Shop Boys – Very
    o Fun Lovin’ Criminals – Come Find Yourself
    o Williams, Robbie – I've Been Expecting You
    All of these I own and love. I replaced the listed Robbie Williams album with I've Been Expecting You. I included it for Millennium and No Regrets alone. Getting Neil Hannon and Neil Tennant to sing backup was a damn good move.

    The two ZZ Top albums are very different, Eliminator has a very 80's sound but damn those tunes are seared into my mind now. Tres Hombres is dirty old school ZZ Top. Grab Deguello while you're at it. Even better and it just rips on vinyl.

    Both CSN(Y) albums are worthy, Deja Vu is essential. The way those voices play off each together and come together is amazing. Some great guitar licks on this too from Stills.

    Fisherman's Blues is a masterpiece imo but I can see why some people wouldn't get it. Ever. It needs to be listened to in whole. Lots of introspection on that album.

    Tom was right. Tres Hombres is the best ZZ Top. If they had put Legs on it, then it'd be a truly perfect album.

    Prog is my biggest classic rock weak spot. With a few exceptions, I've never been able to do much of that stuff; I think it's the same mental block that keeps me from giving GoT a chance.

    So is this 1001 Albums You Need To Hear Before You Die updated yearly? Is this written a decade ago or is it five years old ? Who can really say they have the same personal list year to year or certain fads in music that turn into disgusting embrassments years later.

    Edit: It's rewritten yearly and The 2010 edition includes 25 albums released from 2005 to 2009, with the same number of albums removed from the first edition to keep the total at 1001.

    I listened to this for the first time last week.



    Absolutely. Fucking. Incredible. I've listened to tons of Fugazi, but had only heard a Minor Threat song here and there. Personally, I'd rank it higher than any single Fugazi work, and up there alongside Husker Du and Minutemen's best work.

    Damn Chris, you've had quite the essential listening program lately!

    I too have found 2014 to be a bit slow so far in terms of new releases, and after listening to Solid Gold and reading a review about Polyrock I decided to expand my post-punk knowledge. This has led me to listening to the following over the last week or so:

    Polyrock - Polyrock
    Pylon - Gyrate Plus and Park More
    The Waitresses - Wasn't Tomorrow Wonderful?
    Au Pairs - Playing with a Different Sex
    Maximum Joy - Unlimited (1979-83)
    Indoor Life - Indoor Life
    Delta 5 - Singles & Sessions 1979-81
    The Virgin Prunes - If I Die, I Die

    Any other artists/albums you all can recommend?

    Real Life is one I have listened to, and it is a really fantastic album. I've only heard of YMG so I'll be sure to check them out - just the one album?
