Why would anyone want to smell like Africa?

As an African, I already smell like Africa.

I stood in a queue for 3 hours to get standing room tickets for that on Broadway. Worth it.

I would imagine African has a very diverse and naturally rich essence.

2. Tortoise - TNT
3. Oceansize - Everyone Into Position
4. Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra - 13 Blues for Thirteen Moons
5. Do Make Say Think - Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secret Hymn
6. Animal Collective - Strawberry Jam
7. Stars of the Lid - And Their Refinement of the Decline
8. Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
9. Colin Stetson - New Histroy Warfare Vol. 2: Judges
10. Fly Pan Am - N'écoutez pas
11. Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
12. The Microphones - Mount Eerie

23. Milton Nascimento & Lô Borges - Clube da Esquina
24. Feu Thérèse - Ça va cogner
25. Mono & World's End Girlfriend - Palmless Prayer / Mass Murder Refrain

This is really difficult. I wanted to try the one per artist limitation, because I thought it might help me think of albums by artists outside of my very favorite. I also had a hard time separating out how much I really enjoy certain music from its overall status as "canon." Leading to something like the Talk Talk album for example; it's really good, and I enjoy it, but does it belong on my top 25? It's hard for me to say for certain, so I'm not really satisfied with this list overall. Perhaps I'll come back to it in time and will be able to build something more definite.

I bet it would take 4 days to listen to these 25 songs in their entirety

Hard to say. If you asked me right now, I'd probably say TNT is my favorite of that bunch. However, going from your most recent stuff on Last.fm, I'm going to recommend either Apple O', Mount Eerie, or Clube da Esquina.

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy should have been on my honorable mention. Adore Lost in the World.

I'm not sure if I posted a list in this thread, but if I did I'm certain MBDTF was on my list.

Quite a bit changed, actually.

1. Kanye West - Yeezus
2. Acid Bath - Paegan Terrorism Tactics
3. At the Drive-In - Relationship of Command
4. Electric Wizard - Dopethrone
5. Melvins - Lysol
6. Interpol - Turn on the Bright Lights
7. Strapping Young Lad - City
8. Acid Bath - When the Kite String Pops
9. Pearl Jam - Vs.
10. Sleater-Kinney - The Woods
11. Queens of the Stone Age - Era Vulgaris
12. Broken Social Scene - You Forgot It in People
13. Gojira - The Way of All Flesh
14. Raw Radar War - ==
15. Burzum - Filosofem
16. Pearl Jam - Ten
17. The Mars Volta - De-Loused in the Comatorium
18. Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
19. Melvins - Eggnog
20. DJ Shadow - Endtroducing.....
21. Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - Henry's Dream
22. Crowbar - Broken Glass
23. High on Fire - Blessed Black Wings
24. Melvins - (A) Senile Animal
25. Radiohead - Hail to the Thief

I had a lot of trouble ranking this time. And it could probably change at any time. It's really only the top six that are cemented.
