I there an album, record, CD that has really stood the test of time for you? That seems as good or as great as it ever was, has always been and probably always will be?

Asked by lillycoyote (24835points) June 24th, 2010

Every few months I pick up Peter Gabriel’s So and it really is, at least to me, as good as ever. I’ve been listening to that album for over 25 years and it is still great. It never gets old, I never get tired of it. It could be a totally different kind of music for you, but listening to So is what put this question in my head.

Gorillaz – Demon Days I’m in love with this album. Every song is amazing.

Evanescence – Fallen

The Garden State Soundtrack

Nine Inch Nails – The Downward Spiral

Any album by Johnny Cash and Muse.

And with all that said, I must admit, any of Britney’s older albums are still pretty much the shit.

The Beach Boys – Pet Sounds
Bob Dylan – Blood on the Tracks
Oasis – What’s the Story?

And I agree with @Vunessuh that the Garden State soundtrack is a great one to return to.

Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon
The Beatles White Album
Dave Matthews Crash

Miles Davis, Kind of Blue. You cannot tell me ‘Blue in Green’ is not one of the most perfect jazz pieces ever. :-[

I was going to say Led Zeppelin too but could just not pick ONE album.

@madeinkowloon I absolutely have to agree on Kind of Blue. There’s some eternal music.

Out of all of the hundreds and hundreds of albums, cassettes, and cds that i own, i must choose one, in order to answer your question. being a disc jockey for several years, this is really a tough decision. after careful consideration, this is my choice to answer your question:

THRILLER, Michael Jackson. it has stood the test of time. Billy Jean rocks on!!!

There is only one album that I have been listening to my whole life: Negotiations and Love Songs. It’s a best of album by Paul Simon and I love it.

“White Blood Cells” by The White Stripes. An amazing album. I’ve heard it more times than I can fathom and I still want to listen to it.

PF-DSOTM will always be tops for me, but there are others that are timeless masterpieces.
Aerosmith’s Toys in the Attic and Rocks,
Van Halen’s first album,
Frank Zappa’s Apostrophe are just a few.

Toto- Isolation
Alterbridge- One Day Remains
