Best albums ever recorded by mankind

Good music

  1. Los Enanitos Verdes, Enanitos Verdes

    Best Alternative Album spanish language ever produced. Bought the cassette on my mission in Chile 1986. Definitely stands the test of time melodically.

  2. Christopher Cross

    First full album (cassette) I ever bought. Thanks, Chris. Probably the best yacht rock album ever recorded.

  3. Prefab Sprout

    Heard “Don’t Sing” on KSPC one night in my room on a random school night my senior year. Hooked ever since.

  4. I rarely flipped this album to side 2 because side one is so good.

  5. The Smiths

    Bought it at Rhino. Went to Kirk’s house to spin it. Mesmerizing first listen. Like nothing I’d heard before.

  6. Hauntingly good.

  7. Everything But The Girl

    Post mission. On my turntable nonstop. The B sides are as good as the A sides.

  8. Haircut 100

    Junior year high school. I connected visually and aurally with these guys.

  9. The Who

    The "Real Me". Best bass/drum work in rock history. First album I really identified with. It spoke to me during my "Mod rebellion" in high school.
