Dope af list that mate, ones I've heard anyway. Major props for curtis mayfield being on there, my all time favourite artist. Dirt, 36 chambers, rick james, lauren hill..et etc. Cracking list, only ones I haven't heard are the last two.

I think I'd struggle to pick 25 tho. Any albums that nearly got in yours but just missed out?

Dirty Mind(Prince), Led Zeppelin IV, Core(Stone Temple Pilots), Ten(Pearl Jam), The Heat is On(Isley Brothers) are some that just missed the cut.

 

Glad to see young cats showing love for Curtis Mayfield. Amazing singer, songwriter and musician. Doesn't get the credit he deserves.

Funny enough, the latest, greatest season ending THAT METAL SHOW featured their own definitive list of Desert Island discs, and of course, poor Ed Trunk got his Strangers In the Night just barely included, but I would have voted both that and KISS ALIVE (1) as some of the best, I like modern Pink Floyd live for production value, like Pulse or Delicate Sound of Thunder, but one of the best 'live' albums historically has been Live at Pompeii, and though a movie, there are audio only versions for fans to enjoy.

 

Wish You Were Here for studio LPs I can't get enough of, I like most all epic longer then usual PF songs. Not all found on one album, but it's true most all my favorites I never tire of are albums where all the songs are enjoyable, such an album is Waysted's Vices and Save Your Prayers featuring two different key vocalists.

 

There are classic Rock albums as well, but if they get too much radio airplay, I typically don't refer to the recordings as much as I would.

Cheers for reply. Yeah he is strangely looked over, even though tracks like move on up are well known in popular culture you don't hear his name referenced in the same way as Marvin Gaye etc. Always found that slightly odd. Joy division get anywhere near your list?
