The Ten Albums Every Man Should Own
I have four of those, but the list… Where is “Wish You Were Here” or any Pink Floyd for that matter? “Night at the Opera”? How about “Electric Ladyland”? I’d even disagree with his choice of Beatles album, maybe “Rubber Soul” or “Revolver”?
But then again, he is young.Posted 4 years agoNJASubscriber
According to Dave Berry – I own six, which is not bad anyone own more?Posted 4 years agojambalayaSubscriber

that list is awful
This plus (as usual) what CFH said. TBH I have no idea who this guy is anyway. No Rolling Stones, no U2, no Pink Floyd, Eagles, Genesis, Queen, nothing from punk ear (Jam, Clash, Stranglers etc) surely every bloke has to own Bat out of Hell
FWIW I have 3, Oasis, St Peppers (agreed with above, not the best Beatles album by some margin), Pulp Fiction (compilations are lazy option).Posted 4 years ago
Okay, I’ve given it some thought and, as was intended when they published the article, here’s my “ten albums every bloke (?) should own” list. I’ve invented a new rule for myself where they have to be “proper” albums, no soundtracks, compilations or Greatest Hits. Flame away….
1) Beach Boys: Pet Sounds
2) Rolling Stones: Let It Bleed
3) Led Zeppelin: IV
4) Nirvana: In Utero
5) Massive Attack: Blue Lines
6) Rage Against the Machine: Rage Against the Machine
7) Public Enemy: It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back
‘8) U2: Achtung Baby
9) Jane’s Addiction: Ritual de los Habitual
10) The Stone Roses: The Stone Roses
I’m also, slightly inspired by your man Berry’s choices, trying to come up with the list of best soundtrack albums, so far I’ve got:
Pulp FictionPosted 4 years ago
Singles (crap film, great soundtrack album)
Judgement Night (crap film, great soundtrack album)
SFW (see a pattern emerging?)
A bit (qu)easy listening.
Nothing particularly interesting or challenging.
Cpt Beefheart? No
Rolling Stones even? No
Dylan, Cream, Syd Barrat, Jethro Tull? No
How about (they used to be interesting but not these days) Red Hot Chilli Peppers? No
Music for teenagers I’d say
Edit: now Edlong’s list is closer to the mark (apart from Achtung Baby – Live Under A Blood Red Sky please)Posted 4 years agocamo16Member
Okay, here’s mine…
1. Alice in Chains: DirtPosted 4 years ago
2. Nick Cave: Let Love In
3. Richard & Linda Thompson: I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight
4. Metallica: Master Of Puppets
5. Tom Waits: Closing Time
6. Bunny Wailer: Blackheart Man
7. BB King: Live At The Regal
8. ZZ Top: Tres Hombres
9. Julee Cruise: Floating Into The Night
10. Dr John – Remedies/Dr John’s Gumbo
Actually given I have just under 500 CDs and about the same again of MP3 derived music, I think 10 albums is somewhat limited. I probably listen to more than 10 distinct genres. And I reckon I have a small music collection (though my wife doesn’t)
Camo – is your smiley wearing cheap sunglasses? Nice touch (I’ll assume it was deliberate)
Camo – they’ve gone. Did you edit that? Put them back.Posted 4 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
Over my 10-year career I’ve worked on MTV, 4Music, and hosted the V, Homelands, iTunes and Isle of Wight music festivals. I’ve hosted radio shows on XFM and Capital FM, and like to think I have learnt a thing or two about music.
And your views are no more valid than anyone elses.
I HATE music snobs.Posted 4 years agomudsharkMember
Cpt Beefheart? No
Hmm well I’m a big fan but accept Trout Mask, isn’t going to be everyone’s cup of, er, milk. Maybe it should be in most important albums – Zappa’s Freak Out too.
The only thing we can agree is that DJ’s list is very odd.
Pet Sounds and Revolver are clear top candidates.Posted 4 years ago
