I thought I would take a break from the usual fare, and talk about music today. My wife is much more musically-inclined than I am, but I know what I like. She has her favorites (her email addresses are usually some variation of "Bowie fan"), and I have mine. We agree on a lot, but differ on some.
Below is a list of some of my favorite Rock Albums of all time (the use of the term "album" probably kind of dates me here). You should know that these are just MY favorites, and this list will no doubt vary greatly from any given person's. The criteria I used for this list is simple. The album a) has to be Rock n Roll, b) can't be a "greatest hits" compilation, and c) has to be an album that I like most, if not all of the songs on.
Reckless - Bryan Adams
Appetite for Destruction - Guns n' Roses
5150 - Van Halen
Pride - White Lion
Escape - Journey
Operation: Mindcrime - Queensryche
This is just a partial list, and I am sure that, if I thought about it for a long time, I'd probably come up with at least a dozen more to add to it. But this is what came to me as I thought about it.
As with most of my lists, you can see that I am a child of the 80's. What can I say?
