Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by SubzeroButcher (2019)

« View previous chartView next chart »

This is my personal favorite top 100 albums.
They have to be albums that I own, listen to frequently, & have as little filler as possible.
Plenty of typical BEA (i.e. Abbey Road, OK Computer, Blonde on Blonde, etc.) have been omitted because they do not meet one of the criteria above.

Let me know what you think of it.

White PonyUnited States Deftones
Intense and Fragile are the aesthetics of an album that perfectly encapsulates everything I want in a band and in general appeal to me on a core level. The melodies and verses now etched into my being. My favorite album from my favorite band will take top billing on my personal list.

Led Zeppelin IIUnited Kingdom Led Zeppelin
Guitar/Drums/Bass/Vocals. The raw attitude it emits along with the sheer talent of the band who would go on to change the very way we think of Rock and Roll. This is, in my opinion, the greatest band that ever was and on their second effort, they pulled away from the pack and bombastically launched themselves into the history books.

Future PerfectUnited States Autolux
Rough and Gentle. Small and Massive. Calm and Furious. Every song on this album is solid and I can't get enough of the sound. They took the quiet/loud formula of their contemporaries and spun it into perfected euphoric wonder. As far as I'm concerned this is Shoe-gaze but its also so much more.

Houses Of The HolyUnited Kingdom Led Zeppelin
Post IV Zeppelin. Lush landscapes and bigger instrumentation fill in where swagger and scrappiness once prevailed. Their scope of the world has enlarged and so has the sonic palette.
Seriously every song is a drop dead classic any band would be lucky to have written just one of these beauties

You're A Woman, I'm A MachineCanada Death From Above 1979
Abbrassive, Funky, Loud, Punk. This debut comes barreling through and never really lets up. A ball of energy that reinvents the duo trope of blues-rock solitary.
Also, they have the best bass sound I've ever heard!

Diamond EyesUnited States Deftones
An album forged out of tragedy but that rebirthed a career. After having lost an original member to a horrible accident, the band came back to the studio and created something in solidarity for the first time in a long time. This is the sound of an experienced band back on the right tracks and having a good time doing it.
Some of their best material comes from this record and I can never get enough.

Planet Of IceUnited States Minus The Bear
After achieving the heights of one of the best indie math rock albums ever the band decided to dig deeper and expand the horizons of their own skills. They left behind the cute song titles and modest production and entered into a world of Progressive rock with pop hooks that are just insanely too sweet to behold. They pushed their own envelope and created a modern classic.

Led Zeppelin IVUnited Kingdom Led Zeppelin
A journey of the body, soul, and mind. Through Middle Earth battlefields, upon the mystic stairways, and all the way to the murky South. The template for heavy rock was set here. This is the Old Testament of how it is done and it is good.

Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm NotUnited Kingdom Arctic Monkeys
Whenever the British invade America they always do so in style. Whether it's in redcoats or shaggy bowl haircuts, they always make an impression on the youth of America. I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor was the next big thing and the rest of the songs did not disappoint. A certain wide-eyed innocence and small neighborhood observations were all the charm that was necessary for the early 2000's Brit takeover.

Damn The TorpedoesUnited States Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
Lyricism like a road map of Americana life, Music that comes from the heart and singles that nobody can resist. Tom Petty is attitude, romance, and rock and roll. As mighty with a pen and paper as he is with guitar and amplifier. Each song is a gem and part of the fabric of classic rock and storytelling in general.
