    Default Which 5 albums have you played the most?

    Just thought this would be a bit of fun and I have been meaning to do it for awhile.

    Back in my yoof' I couldn't afford to buy as many albums as I do now and during the mid 70's I was paying more than I do now with less money - how upside down is that?
    Its also where every single penny I earned went, either records, gigs or my Afghan coat!
    Anyway, in those days I would play albums constantly when I bought them, time after time after time, whilst memorising the lyrics and pouring over the album covers.
    These days I may only play some albums once, which is ridiculous really but there you go.
    I'm pretty sure this is representative, hard to be totally certain really, but these are the 5 albums I think I have played more than any others in my life - what are yours?

    (in no particular order, but I know for sure that I've played DSOTM more than anything else)

    Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon
    Black Sabbath - Vol. 4
    Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway
    Led Zeppelin - IV
    Supertramp - Crime of the Century

    near misses;
    ELP - Brain Salad Surgery and S/T
    Alice Cooper - Killer
    Deep Purple - Made in Japan
    Bowie - Aladdin Sane
    Fairport - Leige & Leif
    Hendrix - Ladyland
    J.J. Cale - 5
    Crimson - Court
    Cohen - Songs of
    May Blitz - S/T
    Floyd - Meddle
    Stones - Sticky Fingers
    U. Heep - Salisbury
    Yes - Fragile

    Bob Dylan: John Wesley Harding.
    Wishbone Ash: There's the Rub.
    Elton John: Capt. Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy.
    Metallica: Master of Puppets.

    There are others but these are on my turntable very often.

    Once we've made sense of our world, we wanna go fuck up everybody else's because his or her truth doesn't match mine. But this is the problem. Truth is individual calculation. Which means because we all have different perspectives, there isn't one singular truth, is there?

    Human League - Dare!

    But in the last 10 years or so...

    In my youth my collection was a lot smaller so I suppose ccertain records got hammered then wheras now the rotation is huge by comparison. So given most miles clocked up in my twenties I would say:

    Led Zeppelin - IV
    Donald Fagen - The Nightfly
    ZZ Top - Eliminator
    The Eagles - Hotel California
    The Stone Roses - S/T

    Current Lash Up:

    Technics SLP1200 CD Player * NVA P90SA passive pre / Krell KSA50S Power amp * JM Lab Electra 926 loudspeakers *

    Hmmm... I think for me it would be:

    Lloyd Cole 'Music In a Foreign Language'
    Jethro Tull 'Heavy Horses'
    Genesis 'Selling England by the Pound'
    Yes 'Close to the Edge'
    Camel 'Dust and Dreams'

    I also think these sum up my state of mind perfectly at any one time.
