    I prefer Madonna's 'Something to Remember' album, more a collection of ballads. And that voice! She carries more emotion in a single note than a whole songful of Mariah Carey's up-and-down warbling.

    A couple of you include Third World's '96 Degrees in the Shade, not heard that but I'll put it on my Christmas list-I have 'Journey To Addis' on vinyl and love it.

    Kate Bush 'Aerial' is another favourite, and her recent live one 'Before the Dawn'. Most live albums are little more than a souvenir, but they really made an effort with this one.

    Also like a bit of Deadmau5, Prodigy 'Always Outnumbered' (not anyone else's favourite I know), The Orb's 'Ultraworld' album (good for clearing snow off the roof), and Orbital 'In Sides' for special occasions.

    Oh and Frank Zappa's 'Hot Rats' for when it's time for your visitors to leave.

    This is a really difficult question - but all I have to do is look at the albums I just never bother putting away:

    Prefab Sprout - Steve McQueen
    Rush - Counterparts (best recording they've ever done for dynamics)
    Pearl Jam - Ten
    Maggies Dream - Maggies Dream
    Blof - Omarm
    Genesis - Seconds Out
    Deacon Blue - Our Town
    Extreme - III sides to every story
    Paul Weller - Wildwood
    K's Choice - Cocoon Crash
    Geddy Lee - My Favorite Headache
    Queen - News of the World
    Creed - Weathered

    I have phases. I love thos "DJ nights" when I just can't stop (just one more song!!).
