My Top Ten Full Albums (as currently listing)

Here is my current Top Ten albums that I listen to in their completely entirety that are on constant rotation somewhere in my playlist:
I will never, never tire of this album! Over the career of the band this album really stands out because it was made off of the heels of David Gahan's attempted suicide, which in turn produced a album of great inspiration because he lived. In interviews the band has said that this one was a healing and cleansing album for them, which is interesting considering the content of the songs, but for me it is just pure love.
Muse is easily one of my favorite bands. The layering of their music and the epicness of it just plain rocks!
This is just plain happy joy! I love quirky songs from the 50's and 60's and this album contains some of the best of them.
Lyle Lovett has one of the most amazing man voices out there. For me, this particular album will always be his best.
One of the best murder ballads ever.
What is sort of funny to me is that I just don't really like any other Silverchair album even a 1/4th as much as this one. When this Aussie band first appeard on my radar it was at the time that Nirvana was exploding everywhere, so even though Silverchair sounded somewhat different, they just got lumped into that grundge rock for me. But with this album, they really set themselves apart from a lot of bands. Too bad they didn't keep doing that in the future.
I love The Gossip hardcore! Beth Ditto just makes me very happy. Yes folks, big girls can rock your asses off.
Listen to the sister wail! You cannot deny that!
There is just something about Scorn that I really like. Their low dub style is almost meditative and it works strictly because there are no lyrics.
The Gathering is my band completely! I'm so heartbroken that they split up a few years ago.
David Darling is a magical elf prince that makes the most soothing music....or at least that is my opinion. (I could not actually find a song sample off of 8 String Religion to post...so here is a different sample.)
Breakbeat Era is one of those one shot, totally awesome album collaborations that you just wish would have gone on to make about ten more. Sigh....this is it, but man....it's a whopper! Sexy, raunchy and classy, it has all the appeal of Lords of Acid with the sensibilities of a bebop swing and addictive beats.
