Favourite albums

While I’m on a music tip, I might as well put down my top ten list of favourite albums. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, but the list keeps changing on me. Also, now that I listen to music mainly on MP3 on my computer, the very concept of “album” is blurring. If I’m in the mood for some Barenaked Ladies, I’ll spin up a playlist of my favourite songs spanning all of their albums. It’s actually quite rare nowadays that I listen to a single album all the way through. (The main exception being when I get something new, and want to find out which songs I’m going to like.) This is probably why some of my favourite bands, such as BNL and Toad The Wet Sprocket, don’t feature on this top ten list: they have no one album that I would choose above their others.

Anyway, here’s the list. It’s in alphabetical order, because ordering them by preference would just be too difficult.

Ah, sod it. Here’s the next ten, too:
