Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by discojets1 (2017)  

« View previous chartView next chart »

Here are a few things about my chart before you need to know
- I slightly prefer progressive and artier genres and styles, and the majority of my chart is from the 70's, but hey, music is subjective and my ears just prefer this period of music and I've tried to keep the selections in my chart fairly personal.
- I've also added in the description in each album which shows the genre, key songs.
-My chart tends to move around a lot (even my top 10), for I am constantly discovering new music.
-I've also added something at the end to show how quickly I took a liking to the record.
INSTANT CLASSIC – Loved it on first listen
FLIP-FLOP – Hated it/thought it was boring on first listen, loved it after revisiting some time later
SLOW BURN – From mediocre to excellent over many listens

The Lamb Lies Down On BroadwayUnited Kingdom Genesis
My absolute favorite album of all time. Its theatrical, elaborate and one of the most strangely rewarding pieces of progressive rock music i've ever listened to. The album veers between wild improvisation and tight control. It is ultimately the perfect showcase for Genesis's signature blend of art and power.

Genre: Progressive Rock

KEY TRACKS(S): In The Cage, Carpet Crawlers, The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, IT, The Colony Of Slipperman

Crime Of The CenturyUnited Kingdom Supertramp
Supertramp's breakthrough album, this ultra-tight, progressive, and at times emotional album delivers the notion that Supertramp is a unified entity. The album is as always a showcase for the bands signature electric piano and saxophone.

Genre: Art Rock

KEY TRACK(S): School, Bloody Well Right, Dreamer

In The Court Of The Crimson KingUnited Kingdom King Crimson
This mellotron drenched mixture of psychedelia, jazz, and classical is one of the most fantastic progressive rock albums of all time. All the musicians blend together to create an album of force and originality. With Fripp and McDonald piling on layers of sound, and Greg Lakes foreboding vocals, this album set the tone for the incoming prog revolution.

Genre: Progressive Rock

KEY TRACK(S): 21st Century Schizoid Man, Epitaph, In The Court Of The Crimson King

AnimalsUnited Kingdom Pink Floyd
Pink Floyd's scathing attack of capitalist oppression is one of the best progressive rock albums of all time and my personal favorite Pink Floyd album. David Gilmour shines on this album and he paints with his guitar over Richard Wright's bleak panoramic soundscapes. Its processed and rich but at the same time minimalistic. It to me, shows Pink Floyd's appreciation for sound

Genre: Progressive Rock, Art Rock

KEY TRACK(S): Dogs, Sheep

Remain In LightUnited States Talking Heads
On Remain In Light, rhythm takes control. Each of the eight songs adhere to a single guitar-drum riff. Thin shifting layers of keyboard, percussion, and guitar features are prominent. Lots of afro-beat, and funk flourishes spruced throughout. Very innovative and revolutionary album, Remain in Light paved the way for tape loops and using the recording studio as an "instrument."

Genre: Post-Punk, Afro-funk, Worldbeat, New Wave

KEY TRACK(S): Once In A Lifetime, Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On), Crosseyed And Painless

At Fillmore EastUnited States The Allman Brothers Band
At Fillmore East is one of the most brilliant live albums ever recorded. The first two sides are devoted to exceptional versions of blues standards such as "Statesboro Blues", and T-Bone Walker's "Stormy Monday." Side three is devoted to the groups "Hot Lanta," and my personal favorite from the album, a jazzy, hypnotic rendition of "In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed." The album closes with a 23 minute version of "Whipping Post." Duane Allman shines immensely and represents how groundbreaking his playing was in his very short career cut short at the age of 24.

Genre: Blues Rock, Jam Rock

KEY TRACK(S): Whipping Post, In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed

FoxtrotUnited Kingdom Genesis
Foxtrot is one of the most essential albums in the progressive rock cannon. It is the first Genesis album that really attacked like a rock band. There is a vitality that remains throughout and the production improves immensely from the bands previous album. The highlights are the opening and closing tracks "Watcher of The Skies," and "Suppers Ready." The opening track opens with a melodramatic intro and kicks of the album with a lot of energy. The closing track that takes up an entire side of the album is one of the most rewarding pieces of music when taken the time to listen to.

Genre: Progressive Rock

KEY TRACK(S): Suppers Ready, Watcher Of The Skies

RedUnited Kingdom King Crimson
King Crimson's last album of the 1970's is no doubt the band's heaviest to date. With Robert Fripp's serrated guitar treatments, over Bill Bruford's beat jungles, and John Wetton's heavy thundering bass, this album's songs are hard to tell which of them are compositions or wild improvisation. In my opinion this album houses one of Bill Bruford's greatest performances. Although this album might have been avoided by most people when it was released it is become a cult classic and has become influential for grunge and heavy metal.

Genre: Progressive Rock, Experimental Rock

KEY TRACK(S): One More Red Nightmare, Red, Starless

Just listening to Selling England and thinking how I love that and Foxtrot (also SLOW BURN albums as you've put it), and I don't like Lamb that much... Hope that will change. Oh and did I mention how good this chart is?
