Listography - My Top 5 Albums by Male Solo Artists

Ooh I love it when Listography goes all musical!  I have not joined in for a few weeks as some of the topics have not related to me in any way!  Now this weeks theme I thought would be a walk in the park for me, being a huge music lover and cd collector.  However, looking at my taste of music, it mainly consists of heavy metal, indie groups or pop groups!  My male solo artist section leaves a lot to be desired, mainly showing off best ofs and lame chart hits that I'm embarrassed to mention!
  However, I have managed to pick out my favourite albums by male solo artists even if I am clutching at straws towards the end!  Dont judge me, here we go:


1: 
Damien Rice - O:  A beautiful album that I adore playing although I definetely have to be in a depressing mood to hear it, otherwise it leaves you feeling depressed either way!


2: 
Bryan Adams - On a Day Like Today:  I have made it no secret on my blog that he is my guilty pleasure and this is my fave album by the man himself, perfect to listen to on a spring day!


3: 
David Gilmour - Live:  Oh dear god!  This album, all be it live, is amazing!  I get goosebumps from beginning to end from the Pink Floyd front man, I highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of guitars!

4: 
Robbie Williams - Life Thru a Lens - His best work, this album takes me back to being a teenager and I really think it is well written even if Robbie was a little bitter in those days!

5: 
Bruce Springsteen - Working On a Dream: opening track Outlaw Pete sets the scene for this album, a great comeback from the man himself as he showcased this at Glastonbury three years ago and blew me away!

Phew, that was tough!  Now pop over to Kate Takes 5 to see what others have chosen xxx

  2. That Gilmour album is definitely one of the finest ever. I was lucky enough to see Pink Floyd play on the Division Bell tour but missed out on DG's solo tour. Good to see someone else struggling to hit 5 solo artists!

  3. Interesting list. I didn't even realise that Dave Gilmour went solo (isn't he a bit of an arse??!)

  4. Oh! I am in complete agreement about Damien Rice and 'O'. Great goosebumps and a towering album. Have you seen him live? Very humorous and self effacing banter, completely unexpected and absolutely adorable.
