Tom Waits - Nighthawks in the Diner

but only if I'm alone - not a widely shared taste in out house ...   ::-)

An out house is the correct place for that noise to be played...  ;)

Rage Against The Machine
Their first album. It's still as angry as it ever was, and doesn't sound overproduced like their 3rd+ records. And this Shihad bobb is going on about.
Vorsprung might be right on Dusty Springfield. And just for the troll: ABBA - Gold.

Of course all your preferences are showing your age, you bunch of audaxers you.

There's no point in listening to The Dark Side of the Moon unless you listen to the whole thing !

Alison Krauss and Union Station - Home on the Highways

Counting Crows - August and Everything After

Kosheen - Kokopeli

Solid Air, John Martyn.
It's a crime that it's not been mentioned.

Trust - Trust.  A first album, and fabulous (IMO).  YMMV.

Last time we did this it was alleged that most people were just plugging their favourite album. This may have had some truth! I'll suggest a slight refinement:

What album (preferably with no dodgy tracks) would you give to a friend, before you knew any of their tastes?

I'll propose a couple that were popular last time around:
Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
Paul Simon - Graceland

New thread?

Jane from occupied Europe - Swell Maps

That should get rid of them pretty quick, if they are Cliff Richard fans.

Crowded House - Woodface
??? Italian Plastic, need I say more? Together Alone is more likely to tick the OP for me.

Anyway, Goldfrapp - Felt Mountain, for a start

I'd have to agree with that.  I'd add Low, but I know that might not be as popular a choice.  Odd, cause Bowie produced some howlingly awful tracks.

Fucking hell, it's christmas - you must have someone in the real world to argue with.

Did you mean a post in this spirit:

Hmmm..wonder why I've not heard of them?

Could it be because they are shite?

Snow Goose by Camel,
King of Elfland's Daughter by Various Artists,
Lamb lies Down on Broadway by Genesis

Lots more "Concept Albums" could be included, but I guess that shows my age.....
