    Top Six Fave Miles Davis Albums

    For me, something like:

    Kind of Blue
    Bitches Brew
    Jack Johnson
    On The Corner
    In A Silent Way
    I'll have to think about the sixth

    In A Silent Way
    Bitches Brew
    Live-Evil
    Get up With it
    The Man with the Horn

    But look at how many albums he released, six albums is too few. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miles_Davis_discography

    Agharta is interesting, but I rarely find myself in the mood to listen to it. It is an angry record.

    In A Silent Way
    Kind of Blue
    Siesta
    Filles De Kilimanjaro
    Milestones
    Box set: Cookin'/Relaxin'/Workin'/Steamin' (/Textin'?)

    Favorite three would probably be Agharta, (there are some pretty slow and relaxing stretches on this one compared to some of his other electric period stuff imo) Jack Johnson and On The Corner.

    Agharta
    Water Babies
    Sketches of Spain
    On The Corner
    Get Up With It
    Jack Johnson

    ESP
    Miles Smiles
    Nefertiti
    Filles de Kilimanjaro
    In A Silent Way
    Miles In The Sky

    I like Agartha too, but its not in my top six.

    I'm apparently the only who put Live-Evil op there ! Strange !

    It is cheating, but I'm not going to complain about it; one of the best box sets ever!

    Yes, that's fine, I don't grade strictly.

    Live/Evil would be not far off on my list if I was allowed to keep going, likewise with Agharta.
