Maybe this has been done before and clearly there's no shortage of favorite threads in general, but I was listening to Catherine Wheel's Ferment and thought how much I loved (love) "Shoegaze", and realized that My Bloody Valentine's Loveless is probably my single favorite album, by anyone of any kind, which of course for anyone who loves music is a lofty recognition, seeing as how I could name at least twenty albums I really love.

So what's yours. The idea is that you can only list one, no ties or honorable mentions (I've seen the top five/ten/twenty/etc threads already -- Segue, I know you can't help yourself so you can go ahead and give us your top 30).

My FOAT: My Bloody Valentine "Loveless"... an example:

Lacuna Coil- Karmacode

I won't claim it's the greatest album of all time. But its my most treasured album by anyone and it never fails to consume me everytime I revisit it. Have played it likely around 5000 times by now.

Cristina Scabbias voice alongside Andrea Ferros gruffer tone is my all time favourite dual vocal act, and Christian's voice on Karmacode is my favourite studio work of anyone ever. I adore the synth, Arabic influences and the metallic edge of this album. It's just perfection.

^^ I've seen you mention them a hundred times but this is the first track I've checked out. Very nice. And they're from the city I'd most like to visit (I've been to Italy a couple times but never Milan).

^^ ESL was in the running for me as well. Hemispheres not too far behind though ESL has my favorite bits. ESL is probably my DID if only getting one album (I know it bears repeat listens as I've probably heard it hundreds of times over my life).
