Could do with Tapestry a lot higher but Who's Next , considering it's from the remnants of Lifehouse , a collapsed project , makes a real good choice for any  non Floyd fans .
Especially with "Pure & Easy" tacked on it.
Tapestry would easily be my favourite by a female artist. Incredible


Now that is an interesting question. Favourite albums by female artists. Not sure we should be making these distinctions in the 21st century but I an going to have a think anyway.

Interesting, but would it include female fronted bands or just solo female artists?

Not sure if it should be included in any Top Album Of All Time list but Bloodlines is a very fine record.

Not even sure the second one does either, does it (the Short Cuts one, I'm guessing...but compilation albums is a whole other genre anyway)?

An album is an album. There was nothing to suggest any genre was excluded.

Giving this further thought and it is a bit of a sticky wicket. I would say yes if they were the main creative force in the band (Heart or Fotheringay for example, off the top of my  head) but where does that leave a band like Fleetwood Mac with two great female songwriters but also a crucial male one. Might be best to keep it simple.

In most album lists I've seen live albums and compilations are excluded and are given their own category.  But you're quite right, that wasn't explicit here I don't think.  Although interesting that (I think) this is the only inclusion of either?

I included a couple of live albums in my list (Bruce Cockburn and Twelfth Night).  I didn't think about including compilations though.

Ok, here goes. 24 (I couldn't narrow it down any further) great albums by chick singers  Wink:

Blue - Joni Mitchell
Tapestry - Carole King
Hejira - Joni Mitchell
Nightout - Ellen Foley
Something's Going On - Frida
She's So Unusual - Cyndi Lauper
Different Light - The Bangles
The Dreaming - Kate Bush
Hounds of Love - Kate Bush
Suzanne Vega - Suzanne Vega
Solitude Standing - Suzanne Vega
Famous Blue Raincoat - Jennifer Warnes
Tracy Chapman - Tracy Chapman
Kite - Kirsty  Macoll
A Few Small Repairs - Shawn Colvin
I'm With Stupid - Aimee Mann
Ingenue - k d lang
Sheryl Crow - Sheryl Crow
Mortal City - Dar Williams
Gone From Danger - Joan Baez
Surfacing - Sarah McLachlan
Car Wheels On A Gravel Road - Lucinda Williams
Fashionably Late - Linda Thompson
Big Machine - Eliza Carthy & The Wayward Band


This is deeply flawed because it includes nothing by Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin, Dusty Springfield, Carly Simon or Emmylou Harris of whom I only own compilations. Also because in reality at least 5 of the 10 best female artist albums ever are by Joni Mitchell. And I would have liked to include The Pretenders and Gilmore & Roberts but they didn't fit the criteria.

I saw Rosanne live about 4 years ago and it was the best concert by a female artiste I have seen for years.
