Favourite Album of All-Time?

Question

So I know that listening to individual tracks rather than albums is in vogue nowadays but I'm traditional (or old as my kids would say) and like to listen to whole albums.  What is your favourite album of all-time?  

 

I'll start the ball rolling, mine is London Calling by The Clash...

Cheers

Shakey

This is always a tough question since there are so many great songs on different albums.  Recency tends to cloud ones judgement as well, but looking at my Itunes library the one that gets played the most is "Awake" by Skillet.  I am not certain I would say that is my all time favorite, but I am sure it's right up there.

 

You probably wouldn't guess by that that I am in my 40's.

I'll list my favorite albums that you have to listen to in their entirety (strong from start to finish).

 

The Beatles - Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band

The Beatles - Abbey Road.  The only Beatles album that was recorded with 8 track.

Pink Floyd. - the Dark Side Of the Moon

Pink Floyd - Wish You were Here

Pink Floyd - The Wall

 

The 70's was the greatest time for concept albums.

 

EDIT: reading earlier comments reminded me of one more

 

Meatloaf - Bat Out Of Hell.  Brilliant album from start to finish.

Impossible to answer!  Just like I'm not sure what my favorite movie is.

 

But the candidates come to mind quickly for me:

 

Beatles - The White Album

Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's

Pearl Jam - Yield

Radiohead - OK Computer

Nirvana - Unplugged

 

If I could only listen to one of those for the rest of my life, it's REALLY hard to choose, but I'd probably have to go with the White Album.  First, it's a bit of cheating since it's a double album.  And the range of music on it is so diverse...it's hard to ever get bored of it.

 

EDIT: i'll just add that Nirvana Unplugged is the close second..just great from beginning to end, and Where Did You Sleep Last Night? is probably the greatest end to an album ever.  Kurt left nothing on the table on that one.
