Writer's Block: Play it again, Sam

If you could only listen to one CD for the rest of your life, what would you choose and why?


The Cure, Wish (1992). No question. Why? Because it is quite simply the best album ever conceived.

Weezer, Blue.

Not a bad choice. I prefer Pinkerton, but Blue's definitely the more popular sister.

I like Pinkerton a lot, don't get me wrong (in fact, I vacillate between which of the two is my favorite), but I think Blue is the more complete album. Yes, Pinkerton has some common thread between songs (an artifact of having been conceived as a rock opera), but the aesthetic experience from beginning to end in Blue is more fulfilling to me.

Then again, wait a few weeks and I'll probably have the exact opposite opinion.
