Best Australian Album

This morning I heard them talking about The Hottest 100 Australian Albums of All Time on the radio and it got me thinking about my fave – Since I Left You by The Avalanches.

It doesn’t matter how many times I listen to this album, it never gets tired. Eleven years on, I still love every sample, every lyric, every layer. But I also like it is because it comes wrapped in so many memories.

…..Mending a broken heart by listening to it as I walked for hours every night with our noble Golden Retriever.

…..Sweaty limbs and shining grins as we danced and danced and danced to Dexter from the Avalanches at The Espy and The Croft.

It’s a cliche, but this album reminds me of being young. Of being selfish, excessive and a pleasure seeker. Generally I’d never go back to that time, but sometimes I get a fleeting pang when I remember that those days are forever gone.

What is your favourite Australian album? Or maybe your favourite ever album?
