    Not to mention that audiophiles all over the world use this as a standard test tool - The entire album is a masterpiece and well renowned to be one of the best mastered albums of all time. As such it;s often used by professional music installations and reviewers to test new kit.

    Tom Morello once mentioned that the band have used exactly the same kit since they first got together and he personally has used the same $500 amp and guitar his entire life!


    A perfect Circle - Thirteenth Step : Was also a fanatically mastered album and a personal favourite.

    Spineshank - Height of Callousness : Probably has the most listening hours of my life, I can still remember the first time I heard Sythehetic, and of course New Disease is a sensational cult classic covered by a crazy number of bands.

    Bob Marley - Legend : Okay so I cheated slightly there, but dear god it's a fantastic compilation of the man's work.

    Pearl Jam - Ten

    Hands down my favorite album. Such a fantastic album with loads of emotion. Not a single track on it that I don't like, and I appreciate each song more the older I get.

    Slightly left field, but I cannot fault the 500 Days of Summer soundtrack. Also surprised that this is The Smiths first mention here.

    Also, Bify Clyro - Only Revolutions. As the drums kick in for The Captain, you know you're in for one hell of an album.

    Got to agree with anything by QOTSA. Feel so lucky to have seen those two bands back to back at Reading a couple of years ago.

    All these are perfect albums.

    Strangely enough, I actually like this album. What if and The Scientist are good tracks as well.

    :thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb: VERY good album, and Hallelujah is the best version I have ever heard. So much emotion, and yet so crystal clear.

    Others that made the cut:
    Springsteen - Live in New York City
    Marillion - Misplaced Childhood
    Daft Punk - Discovery
    Tatu - Dangerous and Moving, 200km/hr
    James Blunt - All The Lost Souls
    Jeff Wayne's War Of the Worlds (does this count???)
    Anything by Neil Young...

    Cheers

    Trout Mask Replica - Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band

    Or if you let me have a loose trilogy:

    Swordfishtrombones/Rain Dogs/Franks Wild Years - Tom Waits

    I can never pick between the two.

    As a single body of work I think Trout Mask is the greatest, but taken together (as it feels like they should be) I think Waits' trilogy is is marginally better.
    It actually feels kind of vulgar comparing to things that are so important to me though.
