Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by Rockdrigo (2019)

Five and a half years ago, and starting with this site, I began a quest to learn more about music albums and music in general; all to add to my own musical baggage.

I'm ranking my favorites with no further rules. Variety steps up on the decade and year charts. Since I have a hard time writing descriptions, I’m just gonna let the choices speak for themselves.

All ratings in this chart range from 90 to 100. I rate and re-rate constantly, with a loose rating system of:
0--------------------50--------------------100
Hate------Dislike------OK------Like------Love

    Me gustan todas tus elecciones de música brasileña. ¿Ya escuchaste "Os afro-sambas de Baden e Vinícius"?

    Hey, me gustó mucho tu lista: bastante música que no conozco.

    Me llamó la atención que tengas mucha música brasileña siendo de Bolivia. Me surgió la duda: ¿se escuchaba mucho por allá o fue un descubrimiento y exploración personal?

    Acá en México sólo nos tocó escuchar de Chico Buarque, Os Mutantes y Caetano Veloso, por supuesto. Pero en general para llegar a otros sonidos tienes que aventarte un gran clavado.

    En fin, como decía tu lista sirve muy bien de guía.

    LOVE this chart - great mix of the classics with lesser known picks, and a healthy dose of South American records. Would love to see some notes for a perfect score!!

    It's got some international albums which is always good, a very nice indie chart. Disintegration at 3 and The Smiths at 6 are choices I really like.
