    Default The Top-5 Best-smelling Albums of All Time!!!

    1) Van Halen--Balance. The scent of this album's booklet is unbelievable. I was obsessed with it for the first 6 months that I had it. I would think about it at school, and I would get so anxious to get home and bury my nose in it!! I still have to go back every now and then and give it a sniff. Just for old time's sake.

    2) U2--How to Dismantle....MAGNIFICENT. SOOOO fresh and wonderful. It really is a close rival to Balance.

    3) Elton John--Tumbleweed Connection. This booklet smells fantastic too. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I have the SACD Hybrid version. Perhaps they up the ante on the smelling goodness with their new technology. One can only hope!

    4) The Rolling Stones--Sticky Fingers. It smells great, but I sometimes wonder if it's also a product of my intense love for the actual music itself.

    5) U2--Achtung Baby! Two U2 albums in the top-5. This is pretty significant. Could they possibly be my favorite-smelling booklet band??



    How about you guys?

    "You may recognize some of these chemicals. Let's start with cyanide...The one the Aum Shinrikyo cult attempted to use to commit mass murder in a Tokyo subway in May 1995...The same cyanide produced routinely--1.4 million tons per year--for use in the production of plastics, adhesives, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and so on. It seems that those who put small amounts of cyanide in subways are terrorists. But those who produce it in mass quantities and contaminate broad reaches of soil, water, and air, killing countless living beings, are not terrorists, but rather capitalists, and are counted among the finest and most powerful people on the planet."

    Like them or not, the new Coldplay smells great! Same with the new Foo Fighters.

    Hey they were just experimenting with some new packaging material.

    You should've seen the cover they wanted to do. It wasn't a glove, believe me.

    Well, there's
    Ringo Star - Stop and Smell the Roses
    Cranberries - Wake up and Smell the Coffee

    If you want to talk about single songs, look no further that Lynyrd Skynyrd - That Smell
    A little more volume in the headphones please.

    Did you see his album cover???

    It's much worse than Smell the Glove.

    That was different, he was the one tied up.

    There's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

    Yeah there's just that little turnabout there.

    Both albums are worth your hard-earned dough. The new Coldplay is really good but the new Foo Fighters is outstanding (my favorite FF album).
