Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by quadrophenia17 (2018)

« View previous chartView next chart »

It's very hard to pick your favorite albums, and it's even harder to put them in some consecutive order, so just consider this an incomplete list. It's also bound to change, because of new releases and other various factors. These are the albums that keep getting better the older I get, and make me want to come back for more.

But enough rambling; here's my list. Enjoy!

Achtung BabyIreland U2
"Did I disappoint you or leave a bad taste in your mouth?"

Tracks: Re-arranged in order of preference (try listening to the album in this order):

One - We are all one. We work better together, we know this, yet it is pride that tears us apart.

Love Is Blindness - Do we really see what is in front of us? Or only what we want to see? Love is blindness, and we are dying to see.

Acrobat - The world is a tough place, not very fair. Where do we belong? We want to belong to something so bad, that we will act like an acrobat jumping through hoops to get noticed.

Ultraviolet (Light My Way) - We all need some uplifting from someone we love and trust. We are not so strong all of the time.

Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World - Don't worry. Everything will work out just as it is supposed to. There is no need to try and fix the world. Focus on what is right around you...be still.

So Cruel - What to do after things seem to be hopeless. Relationships and Rules. Dependence versus Independence.

Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses - Moving away; rising up. Being okay with decisions made. Forgiveness and understanding.

The Fly - What we will do for love...The Good, Bad, and Ugly.

Mysterious Ways - Love; she is a mysterious creature. Things we must do to get what we think we are searching for.

Zoo Station - Ready to engage in life again. Feeling strong after a brain vacation.

Even Better Than The Real Thing - Renewed energy and strength. Feeling like never giving up on love/life.

Until The End Of The World - Life is renewed/life is good. The cycle starts over with someone you know and you try to save them from what you have gone through.

The Joshua TreeIreland U2
"With or without you, I can't live with or without you"

"U2 graduated to superstardom with The Joshua Tree, an album that's survived all those years in the spotlight as a masterpiece." – Pitchfork

This is my favorite U2 album to introduce new fans to the group. Though I don't love it as much as 'Achtung Baby', I feel this is much more hopeful than 'Achtung Baby'. Also, this is the first time since 'October' that they were exposing their faith in their music. Though not as blunt as 'October', it serves well with what the themes of the album of faith, and the idea that is America. It's a great album for beginners, as well as one that older fans can enjoy more and more as the years go by.
