Honestly, if I were to set aside some time just to listen to an album I think I'd dig out something that I hadn't listened to in years rather than one of my favorites.  Many/most of the songs on my absolute favorite album/s tend to come up fairly regularly on assorted playlists, so while still special, aren't going to hit me with the same impact as an "oh wow, I forgot all about 'this' ".

I'll probably go back to Dark Side of the Moon. Alternate choice could be Wakeman's Journey to the Centre of the Earth. They're both meant to be listened to as full albums and I need 40 minutes or so of uninterrupted listening time.

Have I mentioned recently that 1970s music is the best music?

Excellent choice.

I was listening to their live album the other day (can't recall the name - has a fun cover of Knockin on Heaven's Door). Would have loved to have seen them in their day.

So many albums from my musically formative years could go here - the aforementioned Dark Side, Master of Reality, Revolver, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Permanent Waves etc.

But I think I have to go with something that came out when I was 25:

Sad, melancholy songs make me strangely happy and I think it all stems from this album. Few voices convey utter bleakness like Beth Gibbons.

I agree with this, though. I'd probably dig into the dark recesses of my closet, pull out THE BINDER of antiquated physical media, and look for something I loved and entirely forgot I owned.  First thing that comes to mind is:

The album I would pick would depend on what mood I'm in.  As usual, I can't pick one, so here are some of my favs.

Miles Davis-Kind of Blue.
Fleetwood Mac-Rumours
Bowie-Ziggy
Van Morrison-Moondance
Neil Young-Harvest
Carole King Tapestry
Dave Brubeck-Time Out

My band opened for Richard Lloyd (with Billy Ficca on drums) years ago. He's pretty nuts, but oh my god can he play guitar. I would love to have a time machine and be able to go to NYC in 1977 to see them.

I listen to classical as well and listening to a full symphony by one of the big three can be amazing and very moving.  (Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms.)

I used to have them on albums, but lost them somewhere along the way.   Thanks to the internet, they're at one's fingertips now, and that is wonderful.
