Arctic Monkeys - Favourite Worst Nightmare



There's not an album of theirs I dislike but I believe this one to be their strongest from start to finish. Starts lively and with an evolved sound compared to their debut album that still catches your attention. The record then settles into a great ebb and flow between ballads and more energetic numbers. One of the best alternative records I've heard and is still to this day my favorite record by them. Favorites include D is for Dangerous, Do Me A Favour and 505.

Mezzanine was pretty badass.



Perhaps the word's most consistent album song wise. Baroque pop at its finest. This album is filled to the brim with unique instrumentation as well as unique vocal harmonies. Pet Sounds is considered to be one of the greatest albums of the 60s as well as all time. With classics such as Wouldn't It Be Nice, Sloop John B, Caroline No, and God Only Knows (Paul McCarney of the Beatles' favorite song ever), who could argue? Purely imaginative, creatively inspiring, Pet Sounds is one of the defining albums in music history.

Ac/Dc - Higway to Hell

- For 4 years this has been my favorite album of all time. I don't see that changing. This album is rock n roll perfection. The production is slick and the songs are perfectly constructed and sequenced. Everyone is really tight on this album and it all comes together masterfully. On vinyl it's pure magic. When Angus smashes that opening A chord of Highway to Hell it just shatters the speakers than Phil Rudd comes crashing in...perfection.

Michael Jackson - Thriller

- You know why this album is the best selling of all time? Because it's perfect. This is the greatest pop album that will ever be recorded. This album has an undeniable groove and feel, the songs all of them are magic. It's loaded with classics. Nothing to say other than there is a reason why Michael Jackson will never be topped.

Bruce Springsteen - Born to Run

- This album is desperation, passionate and epic. It took Bruce 3 months to record the title track. 3 months for one song. He re-wrote everything over and over again until it was perfect and perfect it is. This album has something to say, it conveys multiple themes and messages. This album was the one to make or break his career and you can tell. He put everything into it and it payed off times 100. Everything is perfect. The last song Jungleland is beyond a masterpiece. This album is literally too good.

W.A.S.P. - The Crimson Idol

- An epic concept album about the story of a young boy named Jonathan on his rise to fame. However this is not a happy triumph album. This album is dark and very personal. It tells the story perfectly and there are repeat themes through all the songs. Blackie Lawless is an incredible songwriter and this shows that. There are videos of him crying while performing the epic The Great Misconceptions of Me. This album is very personal and you can really tell. It's something special.

Big Black- Atomizer


-This album is the aural equivalent to being trapped in a buzzsaw factory being chased by a psychopath. Guitars clang and smash with the most piercing and explosive sound ever. Steve Albini's guitar work on this comes off like the clangiest and most ear piercing sound out there. Keresone's guitar leads sounds like glass shattering. Passing Complexion sounds like.... actually I cant really describe the sound in conventional terms. A drum machine keeps everything in a very rhythmic and mechanical line. The album comes out being the most insane records I ever heard.

Bob Dylan-Bringing it all Back Home


-Dylans bringing it all back home is easily my favorite Dylan release along with Blood On the tracks. The fast electric tracks greatly complement along with the slower tracks. All of it is wrapped in abstract lyricism that comes of a strange and beautiful. The surrealism of tracks like Bob Dylans 115 dream and Subterranean Homesick Blues tell strange paranoid stories. Maggies Farms is an angry metaphor for Dylans rage against the folk scene. Love Minus Zero over No Limit is one of the most beautiful love songs ever written. Mr. Tambourine man paints a beautiful portrait with words.

Danny Brown-XXX


-Danny Browns breakout album is among one of the best rap albums Ive ever listened to. The weird flow, incredibly strange but clever rhymes, the janky electronic inspired beats all lead to a rap album that sounds incredibly unique. Danny Brown wackiness shines through one the first 2/3s great lines and a very knowingly exaggerated sense humor. But the last third of the album shows a more restrained side. Danny becomes much more calm and depressed in his delivery. He tells tales of the negative affects of his and others drug use and the intense paranoia and depression that leads one to use drugs. The Last track 30 is easily one of the best closing tracks I ever heard.

Franz ferdinad- franz Ferdinand



Every song is great. Every song is slick and stylish. Each song deserves a 2nd listen. This album remains one of the best albums released during the 20th century with songs crafted with a rock age that promotes catchy hooks, swaggery presentation, and an overall party atmosphere. If you can't rock out to at least half the songs on here, then you have no soul.

REM- document


I used to not like REM, until I heard this album. Some of the best songs from REM's entire catalog are on here. It was said that the band were aiming to make the album sound like their live performances and it did just that. Some of REM's earlier releases were restrained and soft, college rock. This is them cutting loose and rocking out. They don't restrain anymore. They are more than a college rock band. REM becomes the band that is setup to break out of obscurity and obtain stardom. This album defines the band when they were at their peak.

Soundgarden- superunknown


This was soundgarden at their most unique and innovative sound. They effectively broke out of the grunge mold they had crafted with their earlier albums and made an album that was familiar yet unique in every way. It you didn't know this band beforehand, you will like them after this album. Forget "Nevermind" this album should be the one that defined the 90s.

The album is a good blend between all their works, from lush to the extreme this band really captured the essence of a "live" session as much as they could, and seeing them live is simply astonishing.

The first track "The Source" immediately puts you into a intimate setting, which is the big ice breaker for this entire band. This intimacy leaves such a memorable experience for me, and I hope the same to whomever listen to it. (I also have to mention this is probably for the more musically inclined)

I've got quite a few here to bring up, so this'll be interesting:



It's been labeled as a progressive rock masterpiece for a reason. In just only 3 songs, the band were able to transcend what they were capable of beforehand or since (except possibly Relayer). From the musicianship, the songwriting and the lyrics to the production and the artwork, it's the pinnacle of what prog rock is capable of.



...do I even need to say anything regarding this album? Really? It's seriously considered, for the longest time, to be the greatest album of all time, ffs, and that includes myself. It literally progressed what music in general could do, especially in the popular music scene of the time. Regardless of whether or not it's a concept album (it is, but it really isn't), every song on here is a classic, and definitely helped build a vast amount of subgenres in its wake (progressive, psychedelic, and experimental rock, among others).



Remember what I said earlier about Close to the Edge being the pinnacle of prog? Well, this is basically its rival in that aspect. This also showed the best of what this subgenre is capable of, whilst being very accessible and commercial in a way. Hell, it's one of the biggest selling albums of all time for a fucking reason, you know? And of course, one of the best and most iconic covers of all time is here (along with Sgt. Pepper of course).



This is more of a "progressive pop" album than a "progressive rock" one more than anything (though it still has elements of the latter scattered throughout). It still doesn't matter, as it is still one of the greatest albums that ever released, personally. Every song, yet again, is a classic, and I wish more people would recognize this album and this band in particular, too. The production is revered as one of the best produced albums in the field, not to mention the use of strings and simple, but straightforward and moving spotlights from the each of the instruments (and of course the players themselves). Do NOT miss out on this one, please!!



You want to know what hard rock was like in the 70s? Here's your album. Want to see the epiphany of what classic rock in its essence is? Here's your album. This statement may be redundant by now, but every song here is a classic. The cover is striking and hilarious at the same time. It's the band at its pinnacle, one where they would never return to since. P.S. Despite his reasonable concerns, I still can't fathom why Pete Townshend distances himself from this masterpiece. Sure, Lifehouse didn't come out like he wanted, but we got what we got with this genius opus. At least be grateful for that, dude!!



Oh look, the kickstarter to prog rock genre that many acts to this day still try to reach for in terms of its status. IMHO, it was beaten by the two previous highpoints, but this STILL ranks with them as well. Everything dealing with prog, including all of the cliches, started here, and we're better off with it. Hell, I even take a liking to the "noodling" in "Moonchild," although it did take time to grow on me. One of the best album covers known to mankind, some of the best musicianship showcased here, some of the best lyrics in an album period, and even some of the best production despite the setting the band were in at the time. You won't regret listening to this album; I guarantee it!!!
