Mankind’s Top 5 Albums…so far

I made mention in an earlier post about ‘Labour Day’, an album by Canadian band Spirit of the West, being in my top 5 favourites of all time.  This lead to a few curious folk asking what would fill out the rest of that list.  Well, here they are:


5. Labour Day-Spirit of the West (released 1988)


4. London Calling-The Clash (released 1979)


3. Urban Hymns-The Verve (released 1997)

2. The Joshua Tree-U2 (released 1987)

And finally, sitting at the top of the heap…

The who-whos-next-2009-lg

1. Who’s Next-The Who (released 1971)

Special mention goes to…

Stop Making Sense-Talking Heads     For The Beauty of Wynona-Daniel Lanois
Grand National-John Butler Trio   Led Zeppelin III-Led Zeppelin    Regatta de Blanc-The Police       Graceland-Paul Simon    White City: A Novel-Pete Townshend    Mother’s Milk-Red Hot Chili Peppers    Talking Book-Stevie Wonder    Fisherman’s Blues-The Waterboys

Freelance writer guy. My ears love music. I'm a transplant recipient (October/2015), so I also give talks to the masses about that entire experience.
