Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by Mack1212 (2019)

« View previous chartView next chart »

The album is both a compilation and a single unit at once. While a radio-friendly single can be moving for several minutes, only the album fully reflects the artistic intention of its creator, including the ways in which the songs and their neighbors work as a cohesive unit. It is important to not only look at the album as a collection of individual works, but as a monolithic snapshot of an artist's mind. Of course, the album's influence on other works is of chief importance as well.

The criteria for this list may be composed primarily of 3 things:
1. Composition - How moving (in whatever sense) is this music?
2. Originality - How unique is it among its contemporaries?
3. Influence - Did this album have a significant impact?

Hope you enjoy!
