Favorite albums

Possibly their best

I've been listening to a lot of different bands and albums recently. Just last week I started listening to Opeth, a progressive metal band that several people I know claim is the end-all of music. They're ok. I'm not blown away by them but I don't feel an overwhelming desire to turn them off, either.

I started listening to more stuff by Smashing Pumpkins and Pink Floyd, too. Also The Killers new album, Day & Age. I'm thoroughly impressed by all of them.

I've been thinking about my music tastes recently. It's changed over the years, as I think everyone's does. It's hard to pinpoint a favorite album or band because it seems to change annually -- a decade ago I was set on Metallica being my favorite, then after that Incubus, then Nine Inch Nails, then Tool. Now, I'm not really sure. Favorite current band would probably be The Killers. Favorite of all time, maybe Pink Floyd or Smashing Pumpkins? I don't really know.

What are your favorites?

Anyways, I decided to think about it and list my favorite five albums. It's a long post, so don't say I didn't warn you. I've decided to break this up into five posts. Starting tomorrow through the 31st -- Saturday and Sunday included -- each day another album from the list will post. Hope you enjoy it; I had fun writing it.

I'll update regularly on Twitter for my whereabout and doingwhatabouts. In case you've managed to miss it repeatedly despite my incessant complaining about it not working previously, it's on the right side of the blog just about my short little profile.
