Eh, I've got a few.


-MCR's "I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love" (from the non sucky period of their music)


-Tool: 10,000 Days (simply because Tool kicks ass)


-Local H: Alive '05 (because it's one of the few H recordings were Lucas doesn't sound high pitched)


And finally, Nirvana's "In Utero" because it was Kurt's last and favorite album.


And "The Wall" earns an honorable mention.

U2 - The Joshua Tree


To me, it's the most complete, consistently good album there is. There's not a dud on it, although Red Hill Mining Town is the weakest by a considerable margin.


I'd go into other honorable mentions and albums I really love, but The Joshua Tree is the clear-cut winner.

Alright, it's been a while since I posted here. Listened to a lot more stuff since then, and updated my list a ton. Here's a chart! Keep in mind that I haven't listened to a lot of stuff still, so feel free to recommend things. Also, the site I used to make the chart is right here if you wanna make your own.
