Coffee!!
This has to be my all time favourite album. There's not a single bad/weak song on it.

My favourite album of all time, with my favourite male vocalist. No skip songs, no fillers, just pure awesomeness. I would write a review, but my English is not good enough and it would be extremely biased anyway
Go Wuthering Heights!
