Re: College thread - favorite 10 albums from College years

Do they have to be released while we're in college, or the ones we listen to most a college?

Music Note Re: College thread - favorite 10 albums from College years



These three did not quite make the cut, partially because they didn't come out early enough or I did not buy them early enough:

Zoso - Led Zeppelin

Transformer - Lou Reed

Biggest Thing Since Colossus - Otis Spann with Fleetwood Mac

I'd say listened to, because that was the precise question in the high school thread.

I gave my "Transformer" LP a play after supper tonight. Amazing all the detail I don't think I ever heard in my college years with sound equipment not nearly as good as what I have now. The guitar work sounded positively menacing in "Vicious".

Still to this day my favorite Lou Reed album. Nice to see Lou mentioned for his guitar playing which is underrated overall I think. Compared to other "glam rock" albums such as Ziggy Stardust and Electric Warrior, I think Transformer is slightly better than those ... particulaly because T-Rex and David Bowie have better albums than the two mentioned above, but the same can't be said for Lou Reed, though one can argue Berlin comes close.

Either way... great album

Re: College thread - favorite 10 albums from College years

I only spent a few months in college, but here are the albums I played the life out of during that time in my life, or, basically, the CD's I either stuck in my player on my 5 mile walk to class, or the records I had on the phonograph a lot:

In no particular order . . .

"Rumours" - Fleetwood Mac
Pink Floyd's "Echoes" compilation
"Sounds of Silence" - Simon and Garfunkel
"Crimes of Passion" - Pat Benatar
The Best of the Doors
"Arrival" - ABBA
"Beatitude" - Ric Ocasek
"Close to You" - Carpenters
"The Stranger" - Billy Joel
"Parallel Lines" - Blondie

I've always had an eclectic taste of weirdness.
