Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by hahol (2019)
I think personal charts always are feelings,combined with nostalgic connections to your youth and childhood favourites melted together with lifeexperiences and strong impressions from the past. I can not point at classic albums from the near past, because defining classics takes time! A great example is Nick Drake!
Some 25 years passed before his genius was rediscovered! I hope there are still several other artists out there to be appreciated and yet are to be discovered from the hidden past!

In the 60's he mattered as the artist who gave rock importance and depth! His unwillingness to adapt , but do his own thing, made him the most influential artist ever! How many important artists have made cover versions of this man's output or made songs derived from his works? I name a few: Jimi Hendrix (All along the watchtower), Beatles (Rubber Soul), Stones (Aftermath), Elvis Presley (Tomorrow is a long time), Manfred Mann, Hollies, Fairport Convention ....! Blonde on Blonde was the last record in the trilogy of his "thin wild mercury sound" after going "electric". He was booed at his live concerts at the time, called Judas from the folk purists, but Dylan never compromised! His vision was clear and he was in his own bubble at the time. Unbelievable he made music so mysterious and enigmatic in such circumstances, but he did! I think this album is his masterpiece of this decade, a groundbreaking doublealbum at the time and with a lot of superb songs! My favourites are :
I want you, Just like a woman, Visions of Johanna, One of us must know and the sublime epic Sad eyed lady of the Lowlands. This 11,5 minutes long song written to his wife (Sara), is an absolute masterpiece.
The retirement (motorcycle-accident ) from live appearances perhaps saved his life in the period to come, but Dylan never came back to this greatness and significance!(First added to this chart: 10/02/2014)
Shine on you crazy diamond is a beautiful starter, producing an atmospheric soundscape that set you in trance. Mindfulness music, cosmic blues .... Whatever you may call it? Relax and let it flow through your heart and brain. Of course this album is dedicated to their former leader, Syd Barrett. His absense is the thematic pillar for "Shine on you crazy diamond" and "Wish you were here".
This is close to perfection and Floyd defines a new direction and dimension within popular music.(First added to this chart: 10/02/2014)
One of the best albums ever!(First added to this chart: 10/23/2014)

Very impressive, i love the comments for every album.
Just a little lack of nowadays records.
Great chart! I agree completely. Excellent comments, by the way.
to our children's children's children brst Moody Blues
Excellent chart and excellent comments.
Great chart, maybe just too much 70s, but thanks for making me want to discover some of the unknown!
Would like to see more 90s, maybe 00s and newer albums as well though cause it is a fantastic chart so I'm interested what albums you like from those decades
Great choices and really interesting comments. I love so many of these records.
I see we have similar feelings about Blonde on Blonde and Pet Sounds. I really appreciate the comments you've made for the various albums you've listed; they are enjoyable to read and make a good case for your selections.
Great comments :D
