The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From MarsUnited Kingdom David Bowie
Brilliant concept album from Bowie during his amazing 1970's run of classic albums. This truly takes the listener on one hell of a magical joyride and still inspires and amazes after countless detailed listenings. A true masterpiece in signing playing and songwriting. This album truly is deserving of its nearly mythical status A true classic of the genre and the era.

2001United States Dr. Dre
Such a funky fun classic ip hop album. How could you say dre fell off his last album was the chronic. This is a masterpiece that introduced the masses to a white rapper from Detroit named Marshall Mathers who went by the MC name of Eminem or Slim Shady. Snoop returned and this was just banger after banger. Another Ganja soaked blast from the west coast by the king the DR.

White Light/White HeatUnited States The Velvet Underground
Noisey chaotic and brillant. Its amazing how different yet amazing all the Velvet Underground albums with Lou Reed are. Original fantastic work of art though not surprisingly a failure as a chart topper. Influential to this and hs proven its staying power and sure majesty over the 50 years since its release.

Bambu (The Caribou Sessions)United States Dennis Wilson
Bambu is such a beautiful soulful yet heavy at times album. This masterpiece was shelved until 2017 win it finally got an official release. This record is pure genius and essential along with Pacific Ocean Blue.

The Modern LoversUnited States The Modern Lovers
So ahead of its time Jonathan Richman and crew had the record delayed on them for a few years and it still sounded ahead of anything else that had come out. One of the most influent albums of the era. was not a commercial success but has become a cult classic.

Appetite For DestructionUnited States Guns N' Roses
A seminal records of 80's rock n roll. Slash has some of the best guitar playing ever on this album. The solos in sweet child of mine and paradise city are terrific hair raising showcases and Axl is at the height of his powers just commanding the songs with some of the best rock vocals. Hollywood to the core a truly legendary record.

What a wonderful album absolutely an amazing piece of comic book hip hop crossed with gangsta rap with tremendous mic skills from such a large array of MCs. This is a classic for a reason its a bad a$$ record. Wonderful production a true classic

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.
