My Favorite Albums, Past and Present

These eighteen albums have made a lasting impression on me in one way or another since I began exploring the music collection of my parents years ago. They're in no particular order, just a collection of albums that, from start to finish, never get old. You can click on the images in order to see an enlarged version.

Albums of the Past (from top left to bottom right)

These nine are albums that I listened to as a kid; most of them were played for me by my parents. And man, nothing reminds me of middle school more than Weezer.

The Beatles - Abbey Road
The Dave Brubeck Quartet - Take Five
Eric Clapton - Unplugged
Hootie & The Blowfish - Cracked Rear View
Steely Dan - Can't Buy A Thrill
Led Zeppelin - House Of The Holy
A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory
Weezer - Weezer (The Blue Album)
