Editors Karla Enriquez, Grester Celis-Acosta and Terrel Emerson talk about their favorite albums of all time.

Edited by: Grester Celis-Acosta

Grester: Welcome back, this time we’re discussing our top five albums of all time. I’m Grester the Managing editor for Talon Marks.

Karla: Hey I’m Karla the News editor for Talon Marks.

Terrel: And I’m Terrel the Sports copy editor for Talon Marks.

Grester: So who wants to go first?

Terrel: Ladies first.

Karla: Okay I’ll go first. Once again this was really difficult to compile a list of five.

Grester: Yea she has like three pages here.

Karla: I have three pages. Jump into my top five. Number five I have “Ram” by Paul McCartney. This was after he left The Beatles, he did like his own solo stuff. This album has a lot of ukulele and like just him, his signature you know lyrics style and such and it’s such a great album. I listen to it whenever im cleaning. It just puts me in a good mood. Number four is something a little bit more recent “Turn on the Bright Lights” by Interpol. This is a New York City band.

*Music Plays*

Karla: It just this is what introduced me to indie rock when I was a teenager and I just always thought about the New York sound, the New York sound. I didn’t know what indie rock was and I listened to this album and it was just so perfect and it was everything I’ve liked in music. Really strong bass, just you know Paul Banks voice it’s just like really deep and it’s just awesome. Number three I have “Strange Days” by The Doors so I’m taking it back to the 60s. My dad actually introduced me to The Doors when i was a kid and I just have a lot of memories with this album. And the two the “Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness” by The Smashing Pumpkins. Also something that I grew up listening to in the 90s. Kind of bonded with my brother over this band and so this album just kind of like has a special place in my heart for just you know memories. And number one I’m giving to The Beatles. It’s my favorite band ever. “A Hard Day’s Night.”

*Music Plays*

Karla: It has a bunch of classic songs and another album that you just listen to and you’re just like what? These were all in one album? Like it’s all singles. It’s all stuff you hear in the radio so it’s pretty cool.

Grester: Okay just a disclaimer I should have probably said this in the beginning. These are all just our opinions of our favorite bands. We’re not really saying like ‘Oh this what we think are is the all time’ it’s is more like just our favorite of all time. With that said, we’ll start with my all time. Number five went to “Thriller” by Micheal Jackson.

Karla: Cool.

*Music Plays*

Grester: Micheal Jackson’s the man too. He’s one of the greatest, King of Pop. My number four went to “The Marshall Mathers LP” by Eminem. That album is great.

Terrel: It made my list.

Grester: From three to one, these are just albums that fro me like there just like have sentimental value toward them.

Karla: Right.

Grester: I just love these albums like I can’t live without them. We’ll start with number three “Graduation” by Kanye West.

Karla: Yes.

Grester: That album came out like I was in middle school that was like one of the first albums I actually got from Kanye West. That album is great. My number two is “good kid, m.A.A.d city” by Kendrick Lamar. That’s a classic album.

Terrel: Their teaching english classes with that album.

Grester: I know it’s crazy. That album is a classic and my number one all time is “Recovery” by Eminem.

Karla: Cool.

Terrel: Really?

Grester: This album is just like I love this album. It came out and it was the first album I ever bought and the whole year that’s all I listened to. Just “Recovery” just that album and just the stuff that Eminem says within the album like he’s not trying to be funny or anything. It’s very personal deep album that a lot of people not like don’t really like give it credit for. Their just like ‘It’s not Eminem’ that’s what they say.

Terrel: True.

Grester: But like the personal stuff is all there.

*Music Plays*

Grester: And he’s more mature. It’s just a great album.

Terrel: Again there’s no particular order, but i have Jay Z’s “The Blueprint” making my top five. Okay I’m not going to lie. Being on the west coast and growing up with so much Tupac.

Grester: Yes.

Terrel: And west coast rap. Nas, Jay Z, Mobb Deep, I was like bro no. Not going to listen to them. And once “The Blueprint” came I was like…

Karla: Darn.

Terrel: I went to my dad and I was like ‘sorry it’s good I’m sorry I apologize he’s really good I can’t help it.’ Eminem’s “The Marshall Mathers LP” I have that. Grester you already touched on it. Dr. Dre’s “The Chronic.”

*Music Plays*

Grester: I was going to put that.

Terrel: It’s epic.

Karla: Yes.

Terrel: I was like yea.

Grester: That album is great.

Terrel: That album is honestly you could play that album anytime of the day. Any season, anytime of the day, anywhere and somebody is going to vibe with you regardless.

Grester: Yup.

Terrel: I have Tupac’s “The Don Killuminati: The 7 day theory.” Probably the first album that I learned front to cover. That’s probably the first album that I honestly sat through and analyzed each song with that ‘I have to learn this song, I have to learn this one, I have to learn this song.’ By the time I looked up, I was like ‘okay well another album.’ So anyways I know the album now. But this one I don’t understand how it even almost slipped my mind, but Lauryn Hill’s “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.”

Karla: Yes. I was thinking the same.

Terrel: That album no there’s nothing to say. Like honestly there’s nothing to say.
