Top 6 Simple Minds Albums

Postby Kool_Kat » Wed Jul 29, 2009 9:37 am

One of my favorite bands of all time. Their early years were obviously their best but almost everything they've ever put out has had potential really.


Here are my choices.

1. New Gold Dream
2. Empires and Dance
3. Sparkle in The Rain
4. Sons and Fascination
5. Good News From The Next World
6. Once Upon A Time

To the horror of hardcore fans, "Once Upon a Time" is my favourite. Yes, it's not cool, like "Sons and Fascination + Sister Feelings Call", but most of the songs are good. Those are really the only two/three albums of theirs that I listen to. The rest, I'm mostly only into the singles.

Then I suggest the 3xCD of "Celebrate" for a great overview.

I have all albums up to, and including, Real Life. I just don't listen to them very often.
