Top Ten

WTMD radio is asking for listeners to submit their Top Ten Albums of All Time lists for an inevitable New Year's countdown. Because I actually have a bit of leisure time for once, I filled out their little form.

My choices aren't actually my favorite current Top Ten Albums. I took "All-Time" to mean the albums that were the most important, the albums that somehow perfectly meshed into their time of discovery as a sort of soundtrack to life, albums that eventually led me other interesting places. Perhaps a couple on my All Time list rarely get played anymore.

So, whatever--here they are, in no particular order. They'd change if I did this again next week.

Honorable Mention:

American Prayer?

Wow. Really?

"I touched her thigh and death smiled."

Nyarlathotep said...

I know--weird, right? But there was a time when some friends and I would quote this album like Monty Python skits.

We need great golden copulations

"Choose they croon the Ancient Ones
The time has come again
Choose now, they croon
Beneath the moon
Beside an ancient lake"

Must Stop! Can't Stop!

Columbus' groin got filled with green death...

Lying here on stained sheets with a bleeding virgin, we could plan a murder...or start a religion...

silvery screen, silvery scream, ooooh, impossible concentration...
