I was reading an Into The Orchard post about an Oasis album it got me thinking about albums I have totally loved and, although I’m not a big fan of ‘lists’, I’ve decided to post a list of some of my faves. Here goes. No particular order of preference.
Led Zeppelin – Led Zeppelin
AC/DC – Back In Black
John Martin – Solid Air
The Waterboys – A Pagan Place
World Party – Private Revolution
Prince – Sign O The Times
Van Morrison – Into The Music
The Decemberists – The King Is Dead
Julian Cope – 20 Mothers
10,000 Maniacs – In My Tribe
Cocteau Twins – Treasure
Christy Moore – Ride On
Bob Dylan – Oh Mercy
Sigur Rós – Agaetis Byrjun
Arcade Fire – Funeral
REM – Life’s Rich Pageant
Admiral Fallow – Tree Bursts In Snow
Steve Earle – Copperhead Road
Thea Gilmore – Rules For Jokers
Neil Young – Weld
Ok, I’ll stop at twenty. I realise a lot of these are obvious big name albums but I’m not ashamed to say I have loved them all at different points for different reasons. I could have gone on and on. The thing is – there are so many gems out there that I have not heard – so any suggestions most welcome.
Today was my official study day and tomorrow is my designated day off so college finally starts in earnest on Wednesday. I am looking forward to it although there are some natural nerves. There was some info on the college website about the life drawing class – I haven’t drawn from life in a long time and I know my work will benefit greatly from it so bring it on. It’s good to have a couple of days before it starts to ready myself.
I’ll post again when I have some imagery of some kind to share.
