My Top 10 Favorite Albums (Donuts)
In grad school I had a professor that called his favorite things “donuts”. I liked the idea of “donuts” so much that I have a “donuts” playlist on Spotify, which includes (more than 10 of) my favorite albums. These albums are my donuts.
Back in 2012 I did a roundup of my top 10 favorite albums (and swore that list would never change). Shortly after that I began collecting vinyl, started DJing at a college radio station, and made some new friends with incredible music taste. Thus, my list changed. I should aim to update this list every 5 years to see what new donut flavors I discover!
I decided to limit my updated list to 10 again for the sake of comparison. It’s difficult picking only 10 albums! I’ll have to do a follow-up series of posts about honorable mentions and favorite compilations.
My Top 10 Albums (2012)
I had to look up my 2012 list because I couldn’t remember everything. I was surprised and disappointed that I didn’t include any female artists. And MJ is on there twice? No Bowie?!
I still enjoy these albums but maybe they aren’t all desert island worthy.
- Smashing Pumpkins / Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
- Jimmy Eat World / Futures
- Michael Jackson / Dangerous
- The Postal Service / Give Up
- Children of Bodom / Are You Dead Yet?
- The Faint / Danse Macabre
- Weezer / Weezer (blue)
- LCD Soundsystem / This is Happening.
- Megadeth / Rust in Peace
- Michael Jackson / Thriller
My Top 10 Albums (2017)
I made some tough decisions to put this list together. I’ll reveal an album weekly(ish)…starting next week. I bet you can guess which of my 2012 albums will make the 2017 cut.
What albums do you think are desert island worthy?
