    I hope that you die in a decent pair of shoes
    You got a lot more walking to do where you're going to.
  • Tori Amos' first four solo albums were phenomenal! A defining part of the 90's for me and a major part of the soundtrack to my teen years.

    I used to be quite a Tori listener, but became less interested after To Venus And Back. For me she never really recovered her greatness. Scarlet's Walk was the last album I actually liked and listened to (post From The Choirgirl Hotel). It is rather sad for me really, because I got all excited when she announced a new album.



    Bjork, PJ and Tori were my faves in the 90s.  Mid to late 90s, I would have ranked them
    1) Tori, 2) Bjork and 3) PJ

    Late 90s to mid 00s:
    1) Bjork, 2) Tori and 3) PJ

    Since mid 00s to now:
    1) PJ, 2) Bjork and 3) Tori

  • Completely agree, she lost me after To Venus and Back but, I was so very pleased with Night Of Hunters (her last album)...every time she releases a new one I get excited and run out to buy it in hopes of reclaiming some piece of my youth. Damn nostalgia!

    I was (and am) a huge Bjork and PJ fan as well. That "Hips, Tits and Lips" cover made my year. Bjork's Homogenic is still my fave album ever and Tori's Boys For Pele and PJ's Is This Desire have all remained firmly entrenched in my top ten for well over a decade.

    Got to go update my playlists on my phone now. ;)

    Excluding Goldfrapp...

    i. Debbie Harry, KooKoo


    OMG. All of your lists warm my heart. I find myself saying yes, yes, yes as I read them. I have to say that my jaw dropped when iuventus referenced KooKoo, though. The brick that smashed her brain is now a road in Spain, after all. *edited to say...oh no! Not Spain. MAINE. I've heard it wrong all these years. The floor is now the ceiling, the ceiling is the floor. My world has imploded. Goodbye.*

    Some of mine, no particular order:
    Be Yourself Tonight - Eurythmics
    Eat to the Beat - Blondie
    Kissing to be Clever - Culture Club
    Ariel - Kate Bush
    Scarlet's Walk - Tori Amos
    Black Cherry - oh, I forget...some group
    Big Science - Laurie Anderson
    Trinity Session - Cowboy Junkies
    In My Tribe - 10,000 Maniacs
    Dry - PJ Harvey

    Maine.

    Nevertheless, we must have been in high school/college at the same time.
    If I were dead, could I do this?
  • Yup. Caught that. So disappointed, but Maine's closer to the inner city Debbie sang of so...alright

     Mew - Frengers 



    Lost classic. Have this in the car at the moment. :-)

    I am attempting a list. Will try to go under 50 (but that will be hard).

    It's tricky when you are 43. The way I see music has changed with time and with the more music I have heard, so my opinions have changed. So some of the albums/bands I was obsessed with many years ago I am less excited by today (i.e. if i heard them for the first time today would maybe not be drawn to them)... BUT they still have an emotional pull and helped me form my taste today. So should they still be in the list?
  • I have four albums I ALWAYS return to every week and I keep on listening to every time.

    1. Goldfrapp - Felt Mountain
    2. Kate Bush - Hounds Of Love
    3. Grace Jones - Nightclubbing
    4. Madonna - American Life (a rapless in-house edition, don't ask).

    I know what you mean , I`m suspicious of "Greatest Albums of all Time" , when `classic` albums are propelled to the top , when you know the albums in question usage is rustier than Eamonn Holmes exercise bike . Arguably peeps listen to artists Greatest Hits most of all ? I have about 23 squillion albums but my list only used ones I play , some aren`t on there as to be quite honest , there isn`t enough time in the day .
