    ok... we've done this a bagoogliilion times before...
    but this one will be different.

    your personal TOP 3 ALBUMS each form a differnt genre


    [b]Artist:[/b] Dj Mark Farina
    [b]Album:[/b] Mushroom Jazz 2
    [b]Genre:[/b] Electronic
    [b]Year Released:[/b] 1998
    [b]Best Track:[/b] Mr. Scruff & Mark-Rae - How Sweet It Is
    [b]Best Use:[/b] making love, dinner, biking slow with headphones
    Simply the best downtempo grooves album I've ever heard.
    The entire thing blends so smoothly from one track to the other
    that it just makes the 70 minutes slip away.



    [b]Artist:[/b] Paul Simon
    [b]Album:[/b] Graceland
    [b]Genre:[/b] Pop Ballads
    [b]Year Released:[/b] 1986
    [b]Best Track:[/b] Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes
    [b]Best Use:[/b] boating, chilling with the folks, summer afternoons.
    I think this album has everything that was good about the 80's.
    Catchy pop ballads with world music influence and great story telling.
    It's just timeless, and an album me and the folks can agree on.



    [b]Artist:[/b] Sublime
    [b]Album:[/b] 40oz to Freedom
    [b]Genre:[/b] Rock Roots?
    [b]Year Released:[/b] 1996
    [b]Best Track:[/b] What I Got
    [b]Best Use:[/b] pre-drinking, getting rowdy, skating
    These guys made rock music that could be hard and soft.
    Throw in some dub/ska influence and shit just fits.
    Make lyrics the average joe can identify with
    but also catchy enough to sing along too,
    and you've got this classic.

    i dont own any music other than hip hop im afraid:eek:
  6. http://www.classicalbums.co.uk/images/joshua.jpg'>
    [b]Artist:[/b] U2
    [b]Album:[/b] The Joshua Tree
    [b]Genre:[/b] Rock of some sort
    [b]Year Released:[/b] 1987
    [b]Best Track:[/b] With or Without You
    [b]Best Use:[/b] Long drives, mourning, celebrating, general sunrise/sunset contemplation
    [b]Why:[/b] Every single emotion U2 has ever tried to record is presented here, and presented better than any other effort. Also, it contains "With or Without You", which is enough because it is the best song in the universe.

    [b]Artist:[/b] People Under the Stairs
    [b]Album:[/b] Question in the Form of an Answer
    [b]Genre:[/b] Hip Hop
    [b]Year Released:[/b] 2000
    [b]Best Track:[/b] Blowin' Wax
    [b]Best Use:[/b] BBQ/outdoor activities, majorly stoned headbobbing, reaching for your 12th beer
    [b]Why:[/b] These guys have an uncanny ability to produce the most perfect laidback beats I've ever heard, with a very distinct organic feel and awesome obscure samples. Nothing staggeringly innovative, just really well handcrafted. The perfect 40-and-a-blunt album.

    [b]Artist:[/b] Panacea
    [b]Album:[/b] German Engineering
    [b]Genre:[/b] Drum n' Bass
    [b]Year Released:[/b] 2001
    [b]Best Track:[/b] German Engineering (title track)
    [b]Best Use:[/b] Driving Ferraris, unloading Hellfire cannons on innocent children, baking cookies
    [b]Why:[/b] Panacea is a fucking demon and his music proves as such. This is my #1 choice album for whenever I need to get insanely pumped up for any reason. The guy is a master craftsman of sound layering, and just when you think a song can't get any denser or harder, he flattens your face with a sonic sledgehammer of drums and noise. And STILL, it's club-friendly.

    3 different genres, huh??

    [b]Artist:[/b] Guns N' Roses
    [b]Album:[/b] Appetite For Destruction
    [b]Genre:[/b] 80's sleaze metal
    [b]Year Released:[/b] 1987
    [b]Best Track:[/b] Nightrain, It's So Easy, Sweet ChildO' Mine
    [b]Best Use:[/b] Walking the Strip, drinking Jack Daniels out of a paper bag, wearing tight leather pants
    [b]Why:[/b] The best band ever!!

    [b]Artist:[/b] Refused
    [b]Album:[/b] The Shape of Punk to Come
    [b]Genre:[/b] Post-punk/post-hardcore/prog-punk/concept album?
    [b]Year Released:[/b] 1998
    [b]Best Track:[/b] Tannhauser/Derive, Refused Are Fucking Dead, Liberation Frequency
    [b]Best Use:[/b] Reading Marxist literature, complaining about society, having intellectual conversations with people who have no idea what you're talking about
    [b]Why:[/b] 12 sonically stunning tracks, fiercely representing a musical ethos that has suffered the ignominious shame of commercial popularity. Refused reclaim the right to rage, rant, and innovate. It's a ballsy move to claim you're reinventing a musical genre that has been slogging along quite happily for more than two decades, but the Refused back up their chutzpah with an absolutely awe-inspiring and fearless slab of musical mayhem. The Shape of Punk to Come is nothing short of a punk-rock manifesto.

    [b]Artist:[/b] The Beatles
    [b]Album:[/b] The Beatles
    [b]Genre:[/b] Good old classic rock
    [b]Year Released:[/b] 1969
    [b]Best Track:[/b] Revolution 1, Happiness is a Warm Gun, While My Guitar Gently Weeps
    [b]Best Use:[/b] Pretending to be a 1960's rock God on the downward spiral to drug-induced self destruction
    [b]Why:[/b] The Beatles on Heroin. Need I say more??
