Straight Outta ComptonUnited States N.W.A
The album that brought Gangster Rap to the masses. Gritty urban tales from one of Raps most important and influential groups. Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Easy E are three of Rap histories most important figures add MC Ren and DJ Yella and the talent is unsurpassed in hip hop except for maybe Wu-Tang. F#@% the Police got them on the FBI radar and all the controversy helped make this record a legend. The title track is easily one of the genres best tracks.

Brothers In ArmsUnited Kingdom Dire Straits
An amazing hits filled masterpiece. Money for nothing is legendary and one of the most identifiable songs of the decade with a fantastic assist from Sting on background vocals. Knopfler is at his writing and playing best. A truly decade defining album. This is terrific quality music.

One More From The RoadUnited States Lynyrd Skynyrd
Tremendous live album from the southern rock gods. Triple lead guitar assault combined with one of the sweetest lead vocalists in rock. One of the greatest live albums ever recorded. Free Bird, Tuesday's Gone and Sweet Home Alabama are rock classics along with several other choice cuts make this live record a must have for any southern rock, classic rock, jam or even country fan.

Parallel LinesUnited States Blondie
New Wave Classic this is one of the first records I ever bought, Debbie Harry is an Icon for a reason and this is her masterpiece. Cant believe i still get a thrill out of this album even after nearly 40 years of listening to it.

Fulfillingness' First FinaleUnited States Stevie Wonder
Funky Classic from Stevie Wonder during a period where he put out classic album after classic album. All of them from this period are essential for any top notch record collection. The playing is out of this world and the singing is every bit as good. Boogie On Reggae Woman is among my favorite Stevie Wonder Songs.

AnimalsUnited Kingdom Pink Floyd
Powerful political statement with some of Waters most scathing songs of the political elite.Pigs Three different ones is probably the best of a great collection of political songs pigs on the wing is a more personnel song about a relationship. this is Waters at possibly his deepest lyrically a true masterpiece.

Punk with a more classic rock approach. tom verlaine is a guitar god who makes a clever inventive original punk record. the sprawling title track is a special high point on the album.

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.
