So, it all comes down to this. My favourite album of all time. Not an easy call when you own over a thousand albums in your collection. There are so many that could take the prize here, and whenever I write a “top ten albums” list, it changes almost every time.
But my favourite album has been the same for several years, and I suspect it may have permanently lodged itself in that position. What is that album? Why, it’s…
Yes, Abbey Road by The Beatles is my favourite album. I just love it, from start to finish, and I think it contains some of the strongest songs by each of The Beatles, as well as being a spectacularly diverse album. It was as if all of their experience in both the pop music and rock music worlds finally just collided, and this album was the result of that collision.
Other albums which came close for me are Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin III by Led Zeppelin, Whatever And Ever Amen by Ben Folds Five, Woodface by Crowded House and In Absentia by Porcupine Tree. But while these would probably all be top ten albums, none of them quite take the top spot.
