The best collection of songs. The strongest most solid sound of Dylan's career. Together makes my top choice. [First added to this chart: 06/18/2017]

Again, best songs make the best albums. This collection is stronger than Rubber Soul or Sgt Pepper's, and makes just as much of a sonic leap. McCartney's songwriting in general takes a huge step on this one. For No One, Here There and Everywhere, Good Day Sunshine, Got to Get You into My Life, and of course Eleanor Rigby.

His best lyrics, mixed with his most chaotic sound. Some of the most profound songs ever written appear here: Visions of Johanna, Stuck Inside of Mobile, Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands... First double album in pop music. [First added to this chart: 06/18/2017]

Another one of the first amazing album to exist outside of the vein of what popular music was doing. Nicely straddles genres, incorporating elements of psychedelia, folk, county, R&B, and blues traditions. [First added to this chart: 06/18/2017]

Get a feeling you felt more when young, discovering Beatles (and others), and that later, new music, don't reach in all the way? I have had a decade like that. Only read then. Now music grips me again. I guess it's the love for my kids boosting it.

We've got a lot in common. Plus, it's nice to see your comments on why you love these albums, especially the top 10.

We're pretty similar I think - there are lots of albums I love on your chart that will probably make it onto mine eventually (Pirates, Stormcock, Good Old Boys, the Stones, Soft Bulletin), I just have a system where I don't add stuff to my chart until I've covered it on my blog.

It takes a person of rare intelligence and the most exquisite taste to have Nilsson Scmilsson in their Top 100. Heh heh. No, seriously. Why it isnt in EVERYONE'S, i will never ever understand. Ha ha.
