    Currently, Eno's "Reflection". CD, not LP, however.

    Another album that's proving to be a great unwinding agent for me is Radiohead's "A Moon Shaped Pool". I read a review somewhere that called it "comforting" and I totally agree. There's something warm and soothing about it.

    Nick Drake's Bryter Layter record is the epitome of comfort for me, couldn't ask for a more relaxing album after a long day. Also Brian Eno & Harold Budd's Ambient 2, some beautiful stuff on there. Can't go wrong with The Beatles either, especially their early stuff.

    If it’s been a bad day, Who’s Next does the trick. For a horrendous day only London Calling will help.

    Easy question...whatever's next on my playlist.

    Perhaps that sounds like a bit of a threadcrap comment but it happens to be true. Nothing better after a long day than making a little time for that next musical discovery.

    Different "days" that you speak of call for different musics.

    Peggy Lee, Black Coffee
    King Crimson, Discipline
    Lou Reed, Street Hassle
    Ryuichi Sakamoto, 1996
    The Clash, Sandanista!
    Mekons, Curse of the Mekons
    J.S. Bach, Violin Concertos

    Or sometimes like @Gaslight, whatever's next. Get rid of your "day" and carry on. Good answer.

    If I've had a day full of frustrations, I'd go for some New Wave Of Heavy Metal records from the early eighties. Maybe some Saxon, Demon, Angel Witch, that sort of thing.

    It varies but the likes of Peggy Lee, Julie London, Ella Fitzgerald etc as well as The Byrds, Teenage Fanclub, Francoise Hardy & Bobbie Gentry always go down well at those times.

    Sometimes I don't want to hear music at all.

    When In Rome It's far from being all over...

    If it's been a real 'DAY' it matters not what's spinning on either the turntable or in the disk tray, I'll be with Mr. Sandman long before the first song has a chance to finish... :nyah:

    No one album in particular,depends on my mood and might be a bad i am just getting into or a new release.

    What i don’t get is the folks jamming out to music early in the morning on their drive to work!
