Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by BLO (2019)

« View previous chartView next chart »
Here's my personal list of favorite albums. Keep in mind, I haven't listened to everything. I made sure to add albums that I feel are greatly unappreciated and unknown. I understand I don't have much past the 70's, so let me know if there's anything newer you think I'd like!

I always been a sucker for the fusion of classical music and rock. I also love me some doot bois (horns). This album combines them all, along with psychedelia and thought provoking themes. Also, after reading on the story behind the title of the album, my appreciation for it as dramatically increased.(First added to this chart: 11/22/2017)

This is the cleanest sounding record I've ever listened to. The high points (Abbey road Medley, Harrison's compositions) are some of the best songs ever recorded and the low point (Silver Hammer) is still a good track. Always picks me up on a bad day.(First added to this chart: 11/16/2017)

Unconditional love, sex, kickass riffs, drugs, and country blues. Easily the best Stones album. Can't You Hear Me Knocking and Wild Horses are easily the highlights.(First added to this chart: 11/16/2017)

An amazing recording of a bunch of really weird instruments and beautiful harmonies. Some of the songs sound a little similar, and the instrumental tracks could be a bit better. Otherwise This is a beautiful piece of art.(First added to this chart: 11/18/2017)

This album may not have greatly written lyrics that make you ponder your own existence, or musicians with legendary skills, but what this album does better than any other album is something more fundamental. The melody. Each song flows wonderfully and every word, while generic, fits perfectly with every note. The string sections in each song never feel overblown, and create such a lifting atmosphere.(First added to this chart: 11/16/2017)

Probably technically the best album ever made, this album is a beautiful, flowing piece of work on life, and what drives people to insanity.(First added to this chart: 11/16/2017)

The most consistent album I've ever listened to. So happy and brilliantly produced. You get to see not just Brian Wilson, but the whole band a peak creativity.(First added to this chart: 11/16/2017)

This album will bring you to tears then make you jam out in a matter of minutes. Surprisingly a lot of variety for a S&G record.(First added to this chart: 11/21/2017)

Two of the best songs ever composed, Shine on You Crazy Diamond and Wish You Were Here, are on this album. Not a bad track on here but Welcome to the Machine is a bit too drab and drawn out.(First added to this chart: 11/16/2017)

We seem to have quite similar taste in music. You should listen to more hip hop.

I like this chart a lot and have or recognise many of the albums and artists. I too love the 70s but less so the 60's - although I like many of the 60s artists and albums you have here.
It's always interesting in your chart when a more recent album appears - like Stone Roses, Arcade Fire, Strokes, Fleet Foxes and Neutral Milk Hotel - love that stuff.
I like your comments and found similar views on many albums like Black Angel's Death Song on Velvets and Nico!
I've been listening to more recent stuff myself (post 90's which I guess is still nearly 30 years ago!!!) and found lots of excellent although different from the 60s and 70s.
I've also added your Croce album since I've never even heard of him but hope our musical taste persist with that suggestion.

22 albums in common is quite a lot. I think it's just too heavy on the 70s and 60s, but they were the best period in popular music imo, so I can understand that.

a very nice diverse chart but you should explore more music from the 80s 90s and so on.
