for me:
'Hey Petrunko' probably would.

it's simply full of lovely songs:).

And the rest of you?

I dunno, maybe. It's far too difficult to compile a top ten albums as the thought process could go on for days and days.

If I were to split albums into corresponding parts of life then The Magic Treehouse would be right up there for the latter parts of my school years.

If only for the significant memories it symbolises....which is what makes a great album (in my opinion) as much as musical merit.

EG - Mars Volta are technically amazing, but they don't really remind me of any great/shite part of my life when I listen to them, they just make me wet my pants.

Yep. I posted a top 20 on a different forum a few months ago and The Magic Treehouse was at number 2 :D Like Sean said, a large part of it's the memories associated with it just as much as the actual music.

Yes.

Suika: I think it's important for our band, any band, to have a message.
Interviewer: So, what is your message? What is the message of your band?

Always very much liked the Running Girl EP, and this would prolly make my top 10...

Hey Petrunko is just outside my Top 10.

Yup, definitely.

In fact, The Magic Treehouse is one of my favourite albums of all time. I wish people would make records like that more often instead of releasing boring rubbish.

Running girl might. It's their most balanced record.

Yeah I think I cited Running Girl somewhere on here too. Listened to it again a couple of days ago and it still sounds very good to me.

Hey Petrunko would make top 20 - but if I could make an Oob album using tracks from MT, RG, HP, and CA, that album would be in my top ten.
