    We all have that particularly album that never leaves our soul!

    Doenst matter how much time passed by - 10, 20, 30 or 40 years - we are still listening to them weekly.

    Its just not your favorite albums we are talking here! Its the ones that you literary worship above everything else!!!

    My choices are:
    Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here (best album ever :love:)
    Metallica - Master of Puppets
    Nick Drake - Bryter Layter
    Rush - Fly By Night

    Listen to them at least once a week since I was 15 ... its been a while! :laugh:

    For years I've enjoyed the music of Miles Davis, particularly Sketches of Spain. Though I don't listen to this record frequently (its a demanding listening experience), when I do, I always carve out a long space of time so that I can hear this record in its entirety, uninterrupted. There's no other music I do this for. And I'm not really a huge jazz fan, but this record. . . it was Miles and Gil at their creative zeniths and a masterful creative lunge forward for all music.
