Top 5 Albums I Can't Stop Listening To

I’m an old white guy so I can be blamed for everything bad in the world. I used to be somebody, then I retired. I remember the British Invasion and got goosebumps when I heard the Beatles for the first time. Car guy. I hate the term “foodie”…

Led Zeppelin: Led Zeppelin II

Tony selected three songs from Led Zeppelin’s second album; 1969’s Led Zeppelin II, “Whole Lotta Love”, “Heartbreaker” and “Ramble On”. About the album he said, “Led Zeppelin is my favorite band, John Bonham my favorite drummer. Whole Lotta Love? The Lemon Song? They pushed the boundaries of decency. When you hear the intro to Heartbreaker your brain screams “crank that shit up!” That’s rock and roll”

Pearl Jam: 10

Tony chose “Even Flow”, “Jeremy” and “Black” from Pearl Jam’s first album. About the record he said, ““Every song was great. I remember where I was when I heard Even Flow and what I said: “Whoa! Who the f**k is that?!” I think Pearl Jam saved Rock music after the awful 80’s and the drum machine craze. Honorable mention to the Red Hot Chili Peppers.”

Pink Floyd: The Dark Side of the Moon

From Pink Floyd’s iconic 1973 album Tony chose, “Speak to Me/Breathe (In the Air)”, “Us and Them” and “The Great Gig in the Sky”. This album makes Tony’s Top 5 because, “One of the greatest albums of all times. Insanely good. The mood. The singing. The sound effects. The iconic album cover. I loved progressive rock and that was the best. Honorable Mention: Tull-Thick As A Brick, Emerson, Lake and Palmer-Tarkus, Yes- Fragile.”
