ProThe Best Albms In My Collection

ContraMe again

Only three more reviews to go till my 200th review, so instead of spending money on new albums, I have decided to do another Ciao Cafe review as I really do enjoy writing them and I feel they are a lot more personal and I think a lot more enjoyable to read, please disagree if you like.

Here are my favorite 10 Albums, not to everyone's liking but I think the music we listen to reflects as much on us as is it does on the artist. These albums tell my life story in my mind. Anyway ramble ramble here they are, counting down… 10.Coldplay, parachutes. This is a lovely album I think...

A little edit to the topic in question, this is something of a top ten albums of the past few years - mixing a couple of greats with a large portion of fairly new talent - but all with equal respect from me…… 10. Green Day ‘Shenanigans’ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To bridge the gap between the 2000...

I'm afraid to tell all you good people that Andy is back in business. I'm writing again after a long period away, but that doesn't mean I'm gonna change my habits. I'm one for writing music reviews and what better way to start again by writing about my fave albums of all time. Usually it takes...

ContraThere haven't been any albums like them in years!

I originally wrote this top ten list over three years ago. Though I have heard hundreds of new songs and dozens of other albums, I am not going to change my list. I have been listening to some of the songs on these albums for over twenty years, so this op honours the both the timelessness of...

ContraYou'll probably think I'm a bit sad

Top Ten Albums Having recently written about ten of my favourite songs I am led naturally towards thinking about ten of my favourite albums (LP's in old money). Listing Top Ten's is an essentially frivolous exercise but there is real pleasure to be gained from the process of revisiting the past...

ContraDont tell anyone I like Phil Collins

This is not my top ten albums, far from it. They will be mostly rock and so make for boring reading. No, these are the top ten of the 1980s that if you're over 30 and reading this review then you probably bought them too and have been scratching your head ever since and wondering why, maybe...

Still no product proposal responses. So today I'm going to treat you all to my top ten albums of all time. These are in no particular order, as that changes from day to day. 1. Cold Spring Harbour - Billy Joel, 1971. His first solo album. Yes, terribly fuddy duddy, but the early BIlly Joel is the...

Pro/

It's hard for anyone passionate about music to pick out ten albums as their short list and there are many reasons for this. Probably the main reason is that as our tastes change and evolve throughout the passage of time the list would also change, some albums would shuffle up and down and others...

I started writing this in August, but it seemed an uphill task. As a professional classical musician I didn't see how I could do it, but then it was suggested to me that I could do five of each. That should have made life easier, but..... so here we are 7 weeks later and I suddenly had the urge...
