Love Devotion SurrenderMixed Nationality Carlos Santana / John McLaughlin
Jazz Fusion goodness, Two guitar gods just drop jaws left and right on this amazing record. Truly underrated and one of my all time favorite albums.

RevolverUnited Kingdom The Beatles
One of the first psychedelic records many were ever exposed to. Fantastic record where the beatles really started to show their more artistic side. Tomorrow Never Knows is fantastic and really changed pop music.

Purple RainUnited States Prince And The Revolution
Fantastic Album has been among my personal favorites since the first time I heard most of the songs in The Movie Purple Rain. Explosive and powerful, Prince at his all-time best. I hope he is resting in peace he gave a lot of beauty and passion to this world.

The ChronicUnited States Dr. Dre
The album that introduced the world to the G Funk Era and to Calvin Broadus aka Snoop Dog. A Hazy 420 Cannabis coated masterpiece. Its relevance can not be understated. One of the first records to bring casual music fans into the gangster rap world. Fun, Funny at times, hard, and edgy this album was like a day in the life of a compton citizen.

Everybody Knows This Is NowhereCanada Neil Young And Crazy Horse
Rough sonic assault by Young and Crazy Horse. Cowgirl In The Sand and Down By The River are wondering guitar thrashing masterpieces. The title track and cinnamon girl also stand out on a brilliant album by a brilliant artist.

Bruce and the bands debut a tremendous statement amazing song writing and the band is just so tight a great record with Springsteen sounding like a New Jersey shore version of Bob Dylan.

Stand!United States Sly & The Family Stone
Such a culturally and ethnically diverse band playing some great rock, soul, and funk. Sly is a genius and this record is his greatest achievement. The whole catalog is worth having but this is the zenith.

Madman Across The WaterUnited Kingdom Elton John
Classic masterpiece with a 1-2-3 punch to open the record that can stand up to any opening trio in rock. Madman Across the Water and Tiny dancer are both perfect songs though rather different. Elton is strong in both playing and singing on this record.

Bridge Over Troubled WaterUnited States Simon And Garfunkel
As finely sung as any album ever recorded, coupled with fantastic lyrics make this an all time epic. Truly beautiful and a testament to the greatness of the late 60's early 70's as the true peak of music.

Rock N Roll AnimalUnited States Lou Reed
One of my favorite openings of any album. Intro->Sweet Jane is glam rock guitar driven beauty. Crystal clean and piercing guitar as opposed to the grungier sound of the Velvets. Lou Reed at his Rock God best. Steve Hunter and Dick Wagner on duel lead guitar are both exceptional on this album. Their playing on the intro is some of the best in music history. Another amazing Live Record.

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.
