Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by dgarr22 (2019)

« View previous chartView next chart »

This list constantly changes, the top 10 to 20 are pretty stable, but as a whole it is not.

(The quotes are picked for various reasons, weather it's how the singer says the line, the actual meaning, or how classic it might be, like the opener on Led Zeppelin IV. It could just be there for being the catchiest on the album or because I like singing it the most out of others on the album.)

Also, I hate the 1 per artist rule, or only an "X" number of albums from a decade, just because an artist makes 4 great albums, doesn't mean that the 4th best should be down graded. I feel that using that rule is to just appeal the audience with more diversity, but doesn't accomplish the goal of these lists. Maybe I will reach that point, but I could only see myself getting to the point to only allow 3 per artist, not just 1.

Also, recommendations are WELCOME, I am surprised with my rating, considering these are "basic" albums, and have a lot to listen to before I truely start considering this a 90ish/100.

Give Spilt Milk by Jellyfish a listen, wonderful cult classic pop record that I think you'd love!

It's cool to see a Switchfoot album on a chart full of such fantastic music. Didn't expect it to be Vice Verses but in all fairness it's a good album. The rest of the chart is also great. I'm surprised you think Today is the worst track on Siamese Dream, but to each their own. Fantastic chart(:
