Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by discojets1 (2019)

« View previous chartView next chart »

Here are a few things about my chart before you need to know
- I've added in the description in each album which shows the genre of the album as well as the "key songs" on the album.
-My chart tends to move around a lot (even my top 10), because tastes are always changing
-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

When I read "progressive and artier genres and styles" I prepared myself for a by-the-numbers prog affair but was pleasantly surprised to find a real gem of a great chart! Absolutely adore the inclusions of Long Season, This Heat and Reich, would be nice to see a hip hop album or two sneak in (and some notes maybe)? Keep it up!

Great collection of artists. I have a lot of the same artists but different albums. I love these albums too though.

How could I have not run onto your chart earlier I don't know. We have a similar taste and I love your top 20 (thumbs up for Animals and Crime of the Century in particular). However, I miss some key post-70's prog. Have you checked Wilson/Porcupine Tree stuff for example?

Love finding very personal prog centered charts on this site. Great work and some impeccable choices. 16 albums in common!

I have to ask though, are you not a fan of Rush?
