QotD: Timeless Albums

What are some of your favorite, forgotten albums that have stood the test of time?
Submitted by PeterGibbons.

I had trouble with this one cuz I haven’t been listening to a lot of new music beyond what’s on the radio. So I don’t necessarily forget my favourite albums cuz I listen to most of them regularly.

I suppose that’s one of the pleasures (!!!) of becoming an adult – not being able to obsessively track new bands and get to know their material intimately by reading the liner notes while actively listening to every song.

Anyway, here are a couple of albums I haven’t listened to in awhile, but I really like.

Everything I Long For – hayden (1995)
One of the few albums that I bought in high school that I can listen to in full and not feel like I’ve stepped back in time in a “this music is so dated” kind of way. If you get the chance to see him live, go – his live shows are fabulous.

Antipop – Primus (1999)
I had just started working full time when this album came out. Listening to this album on the train to and from work reminded me that I was not a corporate drone even though I was dressing for the office, getting up early and becoming a respectable member of society.

Crush – Doughboys (1993)
I bought this in front of a boy I liked to make him think I was cooler than my softer-music loving friends. Fortunately, I had heard the singles from the album first and liked them, so I wasn’t buying it just so the guy would like me. The boy and I never worked out, but I’ve kept the CD all this time.
