    I’m wondering what your ultimate favorite albums are.
    Since my knowledge about pre-1990’s music is pretty limited I’m hoping to discover some true gems with this thread.

    My favorite would be “Ray of Light”, and I’m not even a Madonna fan. I simply haven’t found anything yet that I love just as much from start to finish. Björk’s “Vespertine” comes kind of close, but still can’t hold a candle to RoL.

    Nico’s Chelsea Girl has a special place in my heart. I know Nico herself hated it…but it’s the only album from hers that I like. Whatever mood I’m feeling, I can pick a song to match it.
