    Let's say you could only ever listen to three albums for the rest of your life.
    That would be rough, I know, but which three would you pick? And why?

    After much consideration I think I would go with (in no particular order):

    Stevie Wonder: The Definitive Collection - Stevie Wonder

    [​IMG]

    It's a large collection.
    I think the raw musical talent of Stevie Wonder and everyone who played with him would go a long way to satisfy me.
    Especially being limited to only three albums for the rest of my life...
    (Get some of that Motown!!)

    Polarity - The Wedding

    [​IMG]

    Nothing extraordinary as far as technical skills or song writing.
    But this album means a lot to me for more personal reasons.
    I couldn't do without it.
    Plus the variety of genres these guys play in for this album is pretty cool and they have some neat riffs.
    The lyricist did a great job too.
    (The first album from these guys SUCKED though.)

    Hymns - Ascend the Hill

    [​IMG]

    I'm a Christian. I love worship music.
    And this probably my favorite worship album right now.
    Ascend the Hill covered a lot of OLD, old hymns here. And it's pretty fantastic.

    My choices are kind of odd, yeah. Haha.
    But let's hear your 3, if you so please.

    It would be an extremely difficult choice for me, but the three would be:

    “Close To The Edge” – Yes
    “War Child” – Jethro Tull
    “The Brandenburg Concertos” – J.S. Bach

    Man, I would hate to have to choose.

    "kind of blue" Miles
    "Definitive collection" Otis Redding
    "Stop Making Sense" The Talking heads

    That list is subject to change hourly.

    Passion Play? Rather than Thick as a Brick?

    Oh man. I would miss Led Zepplin.
    What was I thinking?
    This question is almost cruel.
