Update: Here is a spotify playlist of all the albums contained in this thread.

My boss at work is a huge music geek, so he asked all the staff to participate in this questionnaire. I thought it would be also fun to do in the forums.

I would like to mention that it was so hard to pare it down to 20 albums that this list is substantially different from the one I sent my boss.

Here are the rules:
  • Exactly 20 albums. No more, no less.
  • No repeat artists.
  • These should be your favorite/most impactful/most personally influential albums. They don't have to be the "best" albums by any objective measure.
My list
  1. Pet Shop Boys - Introspective
  2. Jump, Little Children - Magazine
  3. They Might Be Giants - Flood
  4. Brian Eno - Taking Tiger Mountain
  5. Talking Heads - Little Creatures
  6. Soul Asylum - Grave Dancer's Union
  7. Crash Test Dummies - The Ghosts that Haunt Me
  8. Shudder to Think - Funeral at the Movies
  9. Band of Horses - Cease to Begin
  10. Sunny Day Real Estate - Diary
  11. Smashing Pumpkins - Greatest Hits and B-Sides
  12. Porno for Pyros - Porno for Pyros
  13. New Order - Republic
  14. Big Audio Dynamite - This Is Big Audio Dynamite
  15. Jethro Tull - Songs from the Wood
  16. Heroes del Silencio - Canciones 84 - 96
  17. Haystak - The New South
  18. Collective Soul - Collective Soul
  19. Afghan Whigs - Gentlemen
  20. Ned's Atomic Dustbin - Are You Norma

Ah... See... the artists I like are 90% one-hit-wonders. Most of the time their other music is pure garbage.

That, and I can't really list favorite albums because that would cause so much inner turmoil that you might as well cut the world in two.

Nah, different people enjoy music differently. If I hear a song I like, I usually download the album, and like the album a lot. I will say, however, that almost all of the songs on my list are from childhood. I don't get into albums now as much as I used to.

I asked my mom and dad to do this also. This is my mom's. Also, serial, she said she really wants to see yours, so you need to get on it.

1. Cat Stevens: Teaser and the Firecat
2. Soundtrack for Rocky Horror Picture Show
3. Brian Eno: Here Come the Warm Jets
4. Jethro Tull: Thick As a Brick
5. REM: Green
6. Peter Gabriel: Peter Gabriel [3]: Melt
7. Peter Murphy: Deep
8. Peter Himmelman: From Strength to Strength
9. Pink Floyd: The Wall
10: Bruce Springsteen: Born to Run
11: Carmina Burana
12: Soundtrack for Jesus Christ, Superstar
13: Psychedelic Furs: Talk, Talk, Talk
14: Will Ackerman: Sound of Wind Driven Rain
15: Ian Dury and the Blockheads: Lord Upminster
16: Elvis Costello: Armed Forces
17: David Bowie: Scary Monsters
18. Cheryl Wheeler: Driving Home
19: Counting Crows: August and Everything After
20: Rolling Stones: Through the Past, Darkly
