Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by Daydreamer (2019)

« View previous chartView next chart »

A rough prototype, there are many albums which would definitely be in my top 100 but I didn't know where to place them so I will be adding them as soon as I figure out where they should be.

Also I by no means think these albums are the greatest using some objective criteria, more like 100 best albums ever according to my tastes and opinions. Enjoy :)

The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From MarsUnited Kingdom David Bowie
David Bowie is for me the greatest rock star ever. Larger than life, enigmatic and incredibly unique. This album is filled with so many great melodies combined with Bowie's theatrical siging which are forever imprinted in your mind. This is rock drama at it's finest.

In RainbowsUnited Kingdom Radiohead
Up to this point Radiohead have conquered the world with both rock and electronic music, so here they gave as some kind of synthesis of their previous sounds - alt rock and electronica. But it sounds incredibly fresh, creative and concise, without a single note out of place. Also, this is probably their best album lyrically with songs dealing with personal and emotional problems and only make the songs more powerful and hard hitting. They had an amazing run from 1995-2000 and with this 2007 release they proved that they hadn't lost a bit of that magic.

The Dark Side Of The MoonUnited Kingdom Pink Floyd
What else can be said about this masterpiece? After so many listens it hasn't lost a bit of its magic. It has the most perfect flow ever and literally not a single note is out of place. Pure perfection. I literally can't even thing a single thing that describe how good this album actually is

OK ComputerUnited Kingdom Radiohead
Radiohead are the Pink Floyd of the modern era. Creative, innovative and daring. This album is the soundtrack of the modern man living in the era of technology dealing with modern problems of isolation and loneliness. They created a bluepring many other rock acts would copy and music was changed forever.

Born To RunUnited States Bruce Springsteen
What I love about Springsteen so much is that he is a man filled with so much passion and he pours it all into his music. Born To Run is the last album of his early romantic idealistic phase which would soon be replaced by hard realism. This is the album when it all came togheter for him, making one last great statement of youthful hope and resistance.

In The Aeroplane Over The SeaUnited States Neutral Milk Hotel
A little piece of true magic recorded by Jeff Mangum. A concept album losely based on Anne Frank but also dealing with themes of family, relationships and reincarnation. Mangum's voice will soon become one of your favourites since it's incredibly passionate and his lyrics are on a Dylan level with some incredible surreal imagery. Incredible stuff.

LowUnited Kingdom David Bowie
David Bowie the chameleon. Never has the art of reinventing itself been so beautiful like on this record. Bowie teamed up with Brian Eno and Tony Visconti to make something incredibly unique and ahead of it's time, yet to pleasant to listen to. The fact that Sides A and B are polar opossites and I still can't decide which one I like better really says something.

Highway 61 RevisitedUnited States Bob Dylan
Released as a second album from his electric mid 60's trilogy this album finds Dylan at his most cynical, biting and agressive. Mike Bloomfield's guitar playing gives the music that hard edge and drive matching Dylan's scathing lyrics and delivery. Some of his most imaginative lyrical work can be found here.

RevolverUnited Kingdom The Beatles
The one where they cemented themselves as kings. Having already made one step towards seriousness with Rubber Soul, they took it one step further with this one. Their most psychedelic, trippy, LSD influenced records with some lovely eastern influences remains one of the more groundbreaking albums of all time. It's so much ahead of it's time it's not even funny.

FuneralCanada Arcade Fire
Given the fact I wasn't big on indie rock and that this band is so unique in many ways, I expected this album would take some time to get into. However, it grabed me from the first second of the first song and never let go. The sound is so raw which makes the songs even more emotionally engaging, and even though it deals with some dark themes like death or loss in general, it never feels bleak or desperate, but almost like this album is a beacon of hope during hard time. I find it incredibly catharsic and optimistic

Good chart! Was nice seeing Innuendo and Bone Machine on here mixed in with tons of highly rated albums. Innuendo is easily one of Queens best and most underrated songs.

Very classic orientated chart with good choices. For me some Can or/and Jimi Hendrix is missing but it's still a good chart.

Good chart. Maybe a little bit heavy with top-100 albums but hey, they're highly regarded for a reason. Maybe I would suggest some late 70's punk / post punk. Talking heads, patti smith, Brian Eno. Good luck!
