Musical Recommendations

A friend of mine posted his Musical Recommendations in a recent blog post. These were albums he liked, loved, and couldn't live without. This made me consider my own collection. These are albums that I constantly find myself revisiting, whether for comfort, energy, inspiration, happiness, or... any reason really.

Clint Mansell - The Fountain

Darren Hayes - any albums

Muse - Absolution, Black Holes & Revelations

VNV Nation - any albums

Rob Dougan - Furious Angels

Symphony X - Paradise Lost

Hans Zimmer - Black Hawk Down

Massive Attack - Danny the Dog

Tania Opland, Anne McCaffrey, et al - Masterharper of Pern

It's actually very hard. I look at the CDs and MP3s and I realise that there are a lot more songs that I couldn't live without, but not the rest of the albums they come from. Songs like White Christmas by Bing Crosby, The Chain by Fleetwood Mac, Temple of Love by Sisters of Mercy, Your Shameful Heaven by My Dying Bride, Benighted by Opeth, various Tom Waits tracks, Disappearing World by David Gray, many a track by Blind Guardian, songs such as Basement King (otherwise known as Legend of Steel) by Luca Turilli, acts like The Prodigy, or Marilyn Manson, and bands such as Motley Crue, Meatloaf and Queen... obviously Queen. But 'albums' is hard, because they have to be fully rounded entertainment. So those were mine, so far, and that I can think of today.
