Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by Fade2Black (2019)

My Favourite Albums - by no means a list of the greatest albums ever. A kind of awkward mix of albums that had a big impact on my life and those that are current favourites. Respect to the albums and artists that make the popular and commonly voted / accepted lists.... but music is a personal and subjective thing. We are all different, and there are no rules governing taste.

The Soundtrack to my late teens. A wonderful album from start to finish. Fav Tracks - Black, Porch, Garden, Alive

Everyone has a sweet spot, a short window in time when you were the most influenced by music and what you listened to touched you and will stay with you forever. This sweet spot for me started in 1991 with this album and carried through to 1995. So much great music, certainly rivalling that 1968 to 1973 period as the all time greatest period in music.(First added to this chart: 11/06/2015)

Wow, what a journey, what album. What can I say. Turn the lights of, shut your eyes, and let this one album take you away. Complex, layered, dark, beautiful, powerful. Fav Tracks - Aenima, Third Eye, Pushit, Eulogy, 46 & 2. Brilliant(First added to this chart: 11/06/2015)

My favourite Metallica record. I picked this one up after the Black album and it changed my life forever. From the moment the raising volume of the blackened intro started, my mouth dropped open. The complexity, the speed, the power, the depth. It just felt better, deeper, more orchestrated than the Black Album. It totally won me over and turned me into a huge Metallica fan from that moment. Certainly not perfect, in particular around the bass, but this album floored me. Still does. Fav Tracks - Blackened, One, Dyers Eve, Harvester of Sorrow(First added to this chart: 11/06/2015)

I was never a fan of Neil Young, until I heard Needle and the damage done. The he won me over -to say the very least. Fav tracks - Needle, Old Man, Heart of Gold.(First added to this chart: 11/06/2015)

I bought this album with my first walkman at the age of 11. That Knopfler Strat (or Les Paul it seems) sound just got me. Fav Tracks - Brothers in Arms, So Far Away, Money For Nothing.(First added to this chart: 11/06/2015)

An incredible album. This is what the album format is all about. As soon as i start the record it relaxes me, puts me in a great mood. The vibe, the feel to this album is unlike any other. Not as many hits as other albums but certainly the best album they have ever put together.(First added to this chart: 12/15/2015)

My true guilty pleasure. Whilst not a Bon Jovi fan, this album delivers so many great tracks. SO much pop rock brilliance on one album. Fav Tracks - Living on a Prayer, You give love a bad name, Raise Your Hands, Let it Rock(First added to this chart: 11/06/2015)

A sleeper. I loved Core when I heard it, so many great tracks. The when Purple was realised my expectations were high. Vaseline was a weak single but the album presents gem after gem. Best tracks Silvergun Superman, interstate, meatplow.(First added to this chart: 11/06/2015)

I had honestly never heard this from start to finish until reading Helter Skelter. Ok not a great way to start, but wow. All in all a more mature sounding record that certainly grows on you. Best tracks bungalow bill, blackbird and Helter Skelter. The later alongside revolution being my favourite Beatles tracks.(First added to this chart: 12/12/2015)

Another album from this mid 90's period, which for me was one of the very best periods for music. (Everyone has their own based on age I guess) Pillar of Davidson, I Alone, Selling the Drama and of course Lightning crashes are the standout tracks.(First added to this chart: 11/06/2015)

This is extremely interesting to browse. Your 3 favourite bands judging by the number of albums are some of my favourites too! Lots of things to discover here, and a strong possibility I'll rerate chart when I try Powderfinger and Live.

13 albums and 12 artists in common! And I'm happy to see that you've just added Soundgarden's Superunknown to your list.
