    Hey Adam
    I was just curious as to what a few of your all time favorite albums are...the ones you constantly find yourself going back to. Or the ones you've learned the most from through transcription and deep listening.

    More or less in this order, here are some fav's:
    - Dark Side of The Moon - Pink Floyd
    - Quadrophenia - The Who
    - Bitches Brew - Miles Davis
    - Innervisions & Songs in the Key of Life - Stevie Wonder
    - Rain Dogs & Blood Money - Tom Waits
    - Sun Ship - John Coltrane
    - Live in Greenwich - Albert Ayler
    - Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables - Dead Kennedys
    - Everything by Mr. Bungle
    - Everything by Dog Fashion Disco (a band - sort of avant-metal - that no one ever seems to know, by I friggin' love)
    - And many many many more... but these are a bunch that I'd cry if I couldn't ever listen to them again.
