They Say I'm DifferentUnited States Betty Davis
Hard Hitting Funk from the queen of the genre. The former Mrs. Miles Davis, one of the 20th centuries most important musical figures, yet you rarely hear her name mentioned. She introduced Miles to Sly and Jimi and helped inspire Bitches Brew. Her music is savage wild hard hitting funk Hard hitting sexy funk, still sounds fresh all these years after it was recorded. This is one bad ass Woman.

Sco-MuleUnited States Gov't Mule
A Guitar Lovers dream, Warren Haynes and John Scohfield just feed off each other pushing the jams into outer space. Passionate amped up numbers. A true music lovers dream. Reminds me of an early 70's fusion album despite its recent lineage. A powerhouse of a record.

RelapseUnited States Eminem
The most disturbing album on this list but it is mesmerizing. Its like watching a great slasher film, eminem even uses slasher imagery in many of the songs. Some call it horror core some say no either way the album is eerie and compelling. A fantastic look into a troubled mind attempting to get sober a scary and uncomfortable portrait at times. But a powerful artistic statement.

1999United States Prince
Funky sexy and bad ass album with some of my favorite Prince songs. Hard Hitting and powerful. I can remember knowing this album was dirty as a kid but not really knowing why. It just oozes Prince from beginning to end a classic and as definitive as any album he would make.

If I included more than 1 album per artist in my chart, it would have something like 60% in common with yours! Excellent choices, some old-school favorites, and a couple of suggestions that were new to me and I will check out.

Excellent chart. Some real groovy juice. This is music you can really feel and I like how it's quite unpredictable but still made of albums I feel like most who like music should easily appreciate.

Not much in common (only 8 albums & 8 artists) but phenomenal choices in rock, hip-hop, funk, soul, prog, jazz, etc. Super rich and inclusive. Great notes too. Loved seeing Cat Stevens at #12, he was one of my first loves and that album was among the first few I owned. I saved some of your rap selections to listen to later. None of your choices seemed cliche (Even Beatles at #1), I'm glad you chose this method of entry. Saving this chart to my favorites.

I liked reading your notes. They are really sensible. And I liked what you wrote about trying to make an honest chart about what are REALLY your favorite albums, rather than what you think SHOULD be your favorite albums. But even that isn't as easy as it sounds, as I've discovered.
