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!

Born To RunUnited States Bruce Springsteen
"Wendy, let me in, I wanna be your friend. I wanna guard your dreams and visions"

"Born to Run is, however, Bruce Springsteen’s most Bruce Springsteen album -- the one that exemplifies the go-for-broke barrage of guitar, piano, sax, and glockenspiel that most people associate with the Boss." – Billboard Magazine

Literally one of the greatest albums of all time, my favorite by Springsteen. Each song offers something different while conveying a similar tale of desperation. An amazing listen from beginning to end. This is the ultimate album for high school graduates hoping to leave their small hometowns and find their destiny.
