    Partly it's because rap swelled up over its genre borders and spilled into everything else in the 00s, like rock did in the 70s and jazz did in the 40s. Partly because as with jazz it is in the DNA of rap to sample and respond to prior work explicitly. Jazz, blues, folk, and rap "face backwards." Rock, metal, punk, and soul "face inward." Prog "faces forwards." (Kind of.)

    All I know is that if there was only one record album that I could listen to for the rest of my life, it wouldn't be a Beatles album. Honestly, I don't know of anyone who would say it's a Beatles album for themselves.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Point taken, but nobody's made that argument.

They may not be the singular influence that they once were, but they're still being counted as an influence for successful musicians.

    It doesn't even have to be direct influence.

    Bands that were influenced by the Beatles have gone on to have their own spheres of influence.

    That's a great question. How long could one go listening to only one album without growing to hate it? I'm thinking it might have to be classical or something instrumental on a smaller scale, like Charlie Parker or Wynton Marsalis.

    I provided all kinds of reason most of which wasn't even mine. It's not either of those things but if that helps you put the discussion to bed roll with it.

    I suppose no compilations, concerts or greatest hits should be allowed to make the choice more difficult or carefully thought out.

    First record that comes to mind for me is Dark Side (I prefer Animals but is it long enough?), but Rubber Soul would be under consideration as would Bizet's Carmen with Leontnye Price, Mozart's Le Nozze di Figar with Kiri Te Kanawa & Samuel Ramey, after that I'd have to dig through everything I've got. Not a lot qualifies for, "only this for the rest of my life".

    Maybe Quadraphenia? Joshua Tree? Miles Davis' Kind of Blue? For "easy listening" perhaps something from Zero 7, The Samples, Air or Morcheeba. Hmph.

    Wouldn't they be a similar length as they were both 2 sides (vinyl)?

    Wouldn't be a Floyd album for me, but if it was, Meddle would be in the running although like you, Animals is my favorite.

    This for the rest of your life and favorite may not be the same thing though.

    Purely on instinct:

    Animals, Pink Floyd
    Los Angeles, X
    Entertainment, The Gang of Four
    Give Em Enough Rope, The Clash
    Goo, Sonic Youth
    Fear of Music, Talking Heads
    Beggars' Banquet, The Rolling Stones
    Permanent Waves, Rush
    Fear of a Black Planet, Public Enemy
    One Nation Under a Groove, Parliament-Funkadelic

    I would also like to have Kim Gordon, Clare Grogan, Chrissy Hynde, Carrie Brownstein, and Amanda Palmer each at 33 shipwrecked with me if it's not too much trouble.

    And David Bowie at 40.

    And I would like Richard Butler's voice at 27. And Bo Jackson's body at 22.

    Off the top of my head, no greatest hits/etc:

    LL Cool J "Radio"
    Pink Floyd "Dark Side Of The Moon" (although I love me some Animals)
    Ramones (self-titled)
    AC/DC "Back In Black"
    Metallica "And Justice For All"
    The Cure "Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me"
    Hank Williams III "Straight To Hell"
    Grateful Dead "American Beauty"
    Pearl Jam "Yield"
    Led Zeppelin (Zoso, IV, whatever you refer to it as)

    Funny that at the time, a lot of fans were hating on the new sound.

    Re: USCHO Music Thread 4: Songs She Sang to Me, Songs She Brang to Me

    The Beatles - White Album
    Chris Stapleton - Traveller
    Eric Church - Mr. Misunderstood
    Norah Jones - The Fall
    Rilo Kiley - Execution of all Things
    Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream
    Taylor Swift - 1989
    Tedeschi Trucks - Revelator (if only to get Midnight in Harlem)
    The Who - Tommy
    Zwan - Mary Star of the Sea

    I'll be honest though, I don't really care for albums as a whole. I'm fairly picky when it comes to music. There are tons of great albums that I only can one song that I like.

    This list would be drastically different if you ask me next year or even next month. They might not be my favorite albums of all time but each represents a time in my life and often a significant stretch or some event. Since I'm extremely nostalgic I tend to stick with things from my past.

    Yeah, Signals came out not long after my family moved to Brookfield from Chicago and the lyrics of Subdivisions, The Analog Kid, The Weapon et al really hit home. And it sounded (to me) sprawling and dreamy to my ears. I still love it.

    You're right, the old diehards had trouble digesting this one.

    Oh man, Siamese Dream should have made my list. What a fantastic album top to bottom!

    I actually was more impressed with Ava Adore, which I think is really underrated. Mellon Cholly (sp?) was great, but a tad bloated, even for a double album.

    I agree that MANY MANY songs are specifically tied to a certain memory, or period in my life, and they always will be. Oftentimes, I can name the specific moment that the song became important to me, good or bad.
