Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by infinitejester (2019)

My favorite albums as of November 2018.

My initial plan is to update this chart and the other charts every 6 months or so, time permitting. This way, I can also see the shifts in taste and progressions of what I listen to.

When I first started this, my scope of music tastes fell within what I guess you would call "my generation" of music. I'm sure that's natural, of course. Being born in the mid 80s would mean being a teenager and early 20s during the 2000s, so a lot of albums from that time hold a particular meaning.
Granted, that is also why I got interested in this site in the first place: to explore more music while documenting the progress.


Enjoy.

You know what I'm gonna say don't you ... (see LedZep for my thoughts on your chart) BUT I appreciate the conscious effort you've stated in your chart to explore stuff out of your comfort zone. Seeing as you like stuff with a more modern feel, I'll try and recommend some older picks that have an ahead of time quality:

The United States Of America - The United States Of America
Nico - Desertshore
Steve Reich - Music For 18 Musicians
Faust - Faust IV
Young Marble Giants - Colossal Youth
