Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by arialblue (2019)

« View previous chartView next chart »

I'm currently going through my music collection re-ripping it all to FLAC and tagging and rating as I go. The arcane rating process leads to the album rankings posted here. I've been going over a year now, so this list is starting to take shape. There are a few important albums missing, and several artists are not really represented in the right way, but this will be corrected over time. This chart represents the top 100 albums in my collection AS RATED SO FAR.

I'm not including artists' best-of albums as it seems unfair (they've grouped together their best songs, of course it's going to be a good album!), but will include live albums, remix albums and archive collections. Most compilations rated in the top 100 are included too.

Always looking for signposts to new music, so if something you see here begets a recommendation, please comment below and let me know. Your input is very much appreciated.

Hope you enjoy browsing my list!

Peace,

Ian

LeftismUnited Kingdom Leftfield
An astoundingly good album, delivering superb hits of house mixed with dub, jungle and ambient. Truly a masterpiece.

The Dark Side Of The MoonUnited Kingdom Pink Floyd
It's an obvious choice, I know, but this is a brilliant album - tender, angry, profound. It has it all.

Tubular Bells IIUnited Kingdom Mike Oldfield
Less acceptable to like than the groundbreaking original, but the tunes, production and arrangements are more than that album's equal - and for me personally, they outstrip it.

Wish You Were HereUnited Kingdom Pink Floyd
Bookended by two exceptional longform pieces, and including the exquisite Wish You Were Here, this is perhaps Pink Floyd's most thoughtful album.

DebutIceland Björk
Nearing perfection for the Icelandic pop pixie. Whether covering standards, partying in the toilets, or wailing uncontrollably, this hits the spot in so many ways.

The WallUnited Kingdom Pink Floyd
So much has been written about this album that it would be pointless me stating any truths about it. Suffice to say it's a rock opera worth devoting an hour and 20 minutes to. Picks you up, whirls you around and spits you out again.
