that's really hard, but in todays mood they would be:

1. Ultravox - Quartet (remastered with the monument tour live tracks)
2. Ultravox - Vienna
3. ELO - Time
4. Fashion - Fabrique
5. Icehouse - Love in motion
6. Marillion - Holidays in Eden
7. Marillion - Happiness is the road
8. Placebo - Black market music
9. Rush - Hold your Fire
10. Mike & The Mechanics - word of mouth.

I feel really bad though leaving out albums by Journey, Roger waters and a few others that could easily replace some of these albums depending on my mood

And ELO -Time...I haven`t got it (Big mistake!)
...brings a lot og memories back...love the

love in motion is indeed the same album as primitive man, I bought it on vinyl back when 'hey little girl' was released. I know it was originally released as primitive man, and has since been re-released as primitive man on CD, which I also bought as it has all the bonus tracks on it, that were the B sides to the 12"'s back in the 80's.

Time by ELO...it should be a must in anyones collection...but you could be forgiven if you bought 'out of the blue' or a 'new world record' by ELO instead.

Okay! smile I can`t remember if I bought the album on vinyl back then, but I bought the CD. Later I got the remastered CD too, though I got all the 12"s
(I think).
Thanks a lot for the ELO tip! I will check it out!

Primitive Man will be the perfect soundtrack for the
evening I think...

Always a good topic of conversation! That and Top 10 films!

In no particular order:

Ultravox - Rage in Eden
Ultravox - Vienna
Ultravox - Lament
Ultravox - Quartet
U2 - The Joshua Tree
ABC - Lexicon of Love
Human League - Dare
Queen - Greatest Hits
Frankie Goes to Hollywood - Welcome to the Pleasuredome
Marillion - Misplaced Childhood

Thats the 10, though I do have to say that Muse's HAARP live album and The Resistance are also very high on the list, together with Abba's Gold Greatest Hits (yeah, maybe cheesy but still class songwriting).

Now top 10 films....

- Brilliant Trees - David Sylvian
- Gentlemen Take Polaroids - Japan
- Reproduction - The Human League

Top ten albums? The impossible question that I (and judging by people's comments, most other people) never have a definitive answer for.

Anyway, this is what I'm feeling today - here's 10 albums that have always been on heavy rotation and that I could survive on for the rest of my life. In alphabetical order.

ABC – Lexicon of Love
Boards of Canada – Music Has The Right To Children
David Bowie – Heroes
Julian Cope – Peggy Suicide
The Flaming Lips – The Soft Bulletin
LCD Soundsystem – Sound of Silver
Neu – Neu 75
OMD – Architecture and Morality
Talking Heads - Fear of Music
Ulrich Schnauss – In A Strangely Isolated Place


I reserve the right to change my mind in about ten minutes time.

A difficult one to post on.

Some of my chosen albums are listed here because I love all of the artists work, not just one (if it came down to it and I had to choose, the one listed is the one I'd take). Apart from the first on the list, there are no 'I like this album more than the next...' entries - they're all good, and all have their place on merit in my Top 13 (sorry - I just couldn't limit it to 10, no matter how hard I tried).

Duran Duran - Big Thing
Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
Steve Ferrone - It Up
The Beatles - Abbey Road
The Killers - Sam's Town
Los Amigos Invisibles - The Venezuelan Zinga Son Vol.1
Eric Clapton - Behind The Sun
Suzanne Vega - Songs in Red and Gray
Bryan Ferry - Mamouna
Rolling Stones - Beggars Banquet
Ultravox - Rage in Eden
Bowling For Soup - A Hangover You Don't Deserve
The Who - Who's Next

Paul

I'm purposefully not listing Rage in Eden, Lament, Visage, (and perhaps The Gift), just to keep it interesting. If I had to, they'd knock 4 albums off of this:

1. Spirit of Eden - Talk Talk
2. Autumnal Park - Pseudo Echo
3. Quiet Life - Japan
4. Human's Lib - Howard Jones
5. Songs from the Big Chair - Tears for Fears
6. Reach the Beach - The Fixx
7. Liberty - Duran
8. New Gold Dream - Simple Minds
9. Through the Barricades - Spandau Ballet
10. Kate Bush - Hounds of Love
10.5 Pet Shop Boys - Alternative : )

I was surprised by how many of my choices appear on other lists. Usually these sorts of threads show an immense range of choices, I am surprised and impressed by the consistency of the lists.

1) Ultravox: Systems of Romance
2) Eno: Another Green World
3) Roxy Music: Stranded
4) Bryan Ferry: In Your Mind
5) David Bowie: Heroes
6) King Crimson: Larks Tongues in Aspic
7) Japan: Quiet Life
8) Bill Nelson: Love that Whirls
9) Bill Nelson: After The Satellite Sings
10)John Foxx: Metamatic


A quick review of other poster's lists includes, Miles Davis: Kind of Blue, Daniel Lanois: Acadie, Simple Minds: New Gold Dream, Echo and The Bunnymen: Porcupine, Japan: Gentlemen Take Polaroids, Gorecki - Third Symphony
ABC: Lexicon of Love, OMD: Architecture and Morality, Roxy Music: For Your Pleasure, David Sylvian: Secrets of the Beehive, any of which on a different day would have been on the list.

hmm. I am tempted to go with Mandy and Denise and could easily do an Ultravox/Midge top 10. However, in the interests of diversity I will try ten that don't include Ultravox.....
(and this is hard enough without ranking, so no particular order)
Blue - Joni Mitchell
Architecture and Morality - OMD
Arrival - ABBA
The Flyer - Nanci Griffith
Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd
The Red Shoes - Kate Bush
Savage - Eurythmics
Hunky Dory - Bowie
Made in Heaven - Queen
Bat out of Hell - Meatloaf

Like everyone else it will change tomorrow, and I haven't gone near opera/classical/ musicals/soundtracks....
