Top 100 Music Albums of 1970 by Gowi (2019)

« View previous chartView next chart »

The sixties had just ended and a new decade had begun – a decade that would be far more diverse than its predecessor as the contemporization of rock and roll had long since passed and people were ready to expand, experiment, and challenge the status quo. The sound of sunshine and protest would be replaced with something much more aggressive. For 1970, it was the beginning of one of the most important decades in modern music.
