No, this is not a list of my top 25 albums, but rather a list of my top picks for albums titled “25”.
Who knew, right?
I never imagined “25” was a popular album title. But I stumbled upon a greatest hits compilation from one of the first Christian artists I came to know and love, Crystal Lewis, and when I went to search for the album on iTunes, I discovered that some of my other favorite musicians also had albums titled “25”.
Some refer to 25 years of music, some to their top 25 songs.
Whatever the reason, I felt compelled to not keep these masterpieces a secret any longer, so here you go:
Top “25” Albums
I’m still a sucker for a Harry Connick Jr. song. Not only does he have one of my top Christmas albums ever, but this album is a culmination of some of his best songs ever.
Even though I’m not a fan of the blues or bluegrass per se, I fell in love with the sounds of Blues Traveler in college. “Hook” and “Run Around” are still some of my favorite songs of all time!
I will never forget the purple plastic purse I had in third grade with this album cover on it. Today, it’s still possible to appreciate the best elements of this album without making such a big fashion faux pas 😉
