I took a survey like this 5 years ago, on a Cure mailing list (was anyone else here on Babble?), and ended up with quite the list of albums from a few dozen Cure fans. But the times have changed, and I want a new vote from new people.
I won't give you a quota or a limit. Tell me your favorites, whether it's just two albums or twenty. Any genre. And you can organize them into two categories, if you wish: Recent Favorites, and All-Time Favorites. (Because I know they're not always the same thing.) In a week or two I'll give a final tally of the votes.
Here are mine for the day...
Recent Favorites (i.e., have played them a lot lately and really enjoy them)
Doves - "The Last Broadcast"
Stone Roses - "The Complete Stone Roses"
film soundtrack - "Hedwig & the Angry Inch"
Also an Enya mix CD and a David Bowie mix CD, which probably don't count.
All-Time Favorites (i.e., CD's so good that I don't dare listen to them too much, for fear I'll ruin it)
Pulp - "Different Class"
Dead Can Dance - "Within the Realm of a Dying Sun"
Michael Nesmith & The First National Band - "Complete"
The Divine Comedy - "Casanova"
This Mortal Coil - "Blood"
The Cure - "The Head on the Door" (felt like I should choose a Cure album...which one, will depend on the mood)
The Who - "Tommy"
