Milo’s Favourite Albums.

Damn right I thought we should do more of these.

I know not everyone cares about my little opinion but, if you don’t, why are you here? To hear Reuben’s? Don’t lie to me. Nevertheless, I thought this would be a lot more efficient than doing a top ten redux every three months. Seeing that Reuben did himself a favourite movies page, I thought I’d do a favourite albums page. I’m pretty indifferent to genre but a lot of this is made up of rock, metal and hip-hop.

Red Hot Chili Peppers

By The Way (2002)

The ultimate mix of The Chili Peppers’ sounds – my favourite album of all time.

Blood Sugar Sex Magik (1991)

bssm

A close second to By The Way. Liquid funk oozes out of the edges.

Californication (1999)

californication

The first example of a clean sound from RHCP, with a dash of funk and heaps of awesomeness.

Stadium Arcadium (2006)

The sheer amount of great songs on this behemoth two-discer makes it worth a mention and Frusciante’s guitar turn is one of, if not his best.

Foo Fighters

One By One (2002)

It’s all killer with this one.

There Is Nothing Left To Lose (1999)

There is nothing not to love about this album. I done a pun, I did.

Foo Fighters (1995)

The ultimate post-grunge album.

Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace (2007)

ESPGFF

This is the record that got me into rock music. Needless to say, it’s my Foo favourite.

Queens Of The Stone Age

Songs For The Deaf (2002)

SFTDQOTSA

A close-to-perfect album, an experience in stoner rock, a needless link to my review of it.

Lullabies To Paralyze (2005)

A brilliant, if unnerving, powerhouse.

… Like Clockwork (2013)
