Musical taste?

Inspired by that great ad featuring iron and Wine... I figured I would spark a little inspiration discussion... specifically what type of music you listen to.

Top 5 Bands of all time ( and their best album )

1) Pinback (Summer in Abbadon)
2) Decemberists (The Crane Wife)
3) Neutral Milk Hotel (The aeroplane that flew over the sea)
4) Modest Mouse (The sun moon and antarctica)
5) Figurines (Shake a mountain)

looking forward to reading what you guys listen to :)

cheers

Activity Score 190

1) Pixies (Surfer Rosa)
2) The Kinks (virtually anything)
3) U2 (Boy)
4) Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Rice, the inimitable Murray Head, et al. (Jesus Christ Superstar soundtrack)
5) Neutral Milk Hotel (In the Aeroplane...)

Current faves include: Band of Horses, Okkervil River, Beruit, Wolf Parade, Spoon. And, for whatever magical reason, Neutral Milk Hotel never leaves my ipod. Ever. Guy's a fucking genius.

We'll reconvene at 10.

I've decided I hate signatures.

1) Dylan (Street Legal)
2) Lou Reed (All Velvet Underground, Coney Island Baby)
3) Bowie (Low)
4) Sinatra (Wee Small Hours)
5) Arcade Fire (Funeral)

Just missing the cut: Van Morrison, Marvin Gaye, Television, Neil Young, Kings of Leon, The Clash

I assume that the Beatles are the unstated number one on everybody's list and nobody ever lists them because it seems redundant.
