Three albums. Serious? Only three. You're a hard man Sven. To do this I am using the criteria of three albums that I can listen to year in and year out without tiring of them. Sometimes even your favourite music need to be shelved for a little while, but these three can play in constant rotation without me buying earplugs or going insane.
This is my teenage angst album. I played it to death then, and do now. I first saw the film in Leicester Square in London and still have the original vinyl copy that I first bought.I remember having it on one day whilst doing work around the house, and when it had finished my wife who had never heard it popped her head out the door and said, "I'll just go and top myself now shall I"?
My musical life began with the Jam. They are still one of my favourite artists. The Style council were good too. When Paul Weller struck out on his own I rushed to buy this album and consider it to be his best work.
