Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by cromni (2019)

« View previous chartView next chart »

Definitely a work in progress. I would call this chart Top 100 Favorite Music Albums instead of Top 100 Greatest Music Albums. That's why it's so fluid, and explains why I have 2 Built to Spill albums in my top 20, including one of their most obscure albums, instead of an all Beatles, Radiohead and Zeppelin top 10. These albums have had the most impact on my life, and I have little concern for critical consensus.

I really like this chart, so so many great picks especially the hip hop choices. If I had to critique (only if I had to!) I'd say there's a little too great a slant towards the 90s but honestly I'm nit-picking. Some notes would be a great addition!!

On the Beach in an appropriate place. Same can be said for The Black Saint, I just love that record. The Good Son's also my favourite Cave. So different chart from mine and yet so good. And 2 Calexico albums!

We don't have much in common but the fact that you topped 10 "On the Beach" makes me have respect for your chart ;)
