    Re: Albums that you couldn't stop playing

    Interesting you should mention The The. I have been playing this band in the car for the last couple of days. The thought came to me that this is the most wonderful band in the world that nobody knows about.

    I can think of a few CD's that were so good , I had to listen again and again.

    These are a few, that I can easily recall:

    Sisters of Mercy-Vision Thing
    The Cure- Disintegration
    Depeche Mode- Violator
    Sin After Sin-Judas Priest
    Lights in the Night-Flash and the Pan
    Nazareth-Hair of the Dog
    Brain Salad Surgery-ELP
    Let it Bleed-the Rolling Stones
    Layla & other assorted love songs-Derek and the Dominoes
    Street Survivors-Lynyrd Skynyrd
    My Aim is True-Elvis Costello
    This Year's Model-Elvis Costello
    Armed Forces-Elvis Costello & the Attractions
    Harvest-Neil Young
    Rust Never Sleeps-Neil Young & Crazy Horse
    The Up Escalator- Graham Parker & the Rumour
    Double Vision-Foreigner
    Caravan to Midnight-Robin Trower
    Animals-Pink Floyd

    Re: Albums that you couldn't stop playing

    Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul -- Men Without Women

    What Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band might have been, if Springsteen hadn't turned out to be such a deuschebag.

    Graham Parker (and the Rumor) -- The Up Escalator

    A much harder edge than the more critically acclaimed Squeezing Out Sparks, this signalled the end (for the most part) of Parker's association with The Rumor . . .   more's the pity.

    Warren Zevon -- Stand in the Fire

    Live Zevon -- Non-stop energy from start to finish. The album is summed up succinclty during I'll Sleep When I'm Dead when Warren encourages the audience to "Get up and dance! Get up and dance or I'll kill you!"

    and, oddly enough . . .

    Steve Winwood -- Arc of a Diver

    This one just sticks with me. I don't generally use the word "haunting" to describe music (or anything, really) but this album has a tone to it that keeps me listening for what's under the music . . .   if that makes any sense.

    In sticking with jkj's original thread regarding albums that were not huge hits but which I could not stop playing at the time:


    New York Dolls - (NY Dolls) 1973
    Queen II - (Queen) 1974
    Generation X - (Gen X) 1978
    Valley of the Dolls - (Gen X) 1979
    Ace of Spades - (Motorhead) 1980
    Heaven Up Here - (Echo and the Bunnyman) 1981
    High 'n' Dry - (Def Leppard) 1981
    Faith Hope Love - (Kings X) 1990

    I don't think any of the albums did initially well when first released.

    Not sure if some of these were huge mega hits, but most were not:

    October Project  (album named after the band)
    Songbird - Eva Cassidy
    The Book of Secrets - Loreena McKennitt
    State of the Heart - Mary Chapin Carpenter
    Now that I've Found You - Alison Krauss
    Forever Blue - Chris Isaak
    Warren Zevon - Learning to Flinch

    Tribe - Abort (gotta go with this, too)

    Note: I know someone who was in The The for a few years, in the mid-ninties.  Cool band.

    I played Sting's The Soul Cages over and over - it was my first CD, actually, purchased in 1990.  It came in a folding, cardboard case.  I still love it, actually.
