It'd be damn near impossible for me to select my favourite Smiths album because all of my favorite tracks, track trifectas and such are scattered throughout their entire catalog of releases, not to mention the different recordings of the same songs that they released on later albums.
But this has to be up near the top. Meat Is Murder is a damn fine record.

Yeah JACKyL with a Y thank you Patton
Ravel's Bolero. Quite possibly one of the best pieces of music ever written. EVER. I could be biased, because it's been one of my favorites since I was a wee child (thanks for the intro, mom!) but still. It's just so damn good. SO DAMN GOOD.
Bolero is a timeless piece.
I tend to gravitate toward the Russians, especially Mussorgsky, when listening to classical pieces. I recently found my copy of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. I'm going to put it on my iPod and listen to some great music at work.
This album left my rotation for a while... it's BACK!
I've missed you...
