Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by Oselju (2018)  

« View previous chartView next chart »

I have got a little more than thousand albums and I listen to the music for more than 45 years ! To establish a ranking was very difficult for me. I have favor the degree of emotion which each of these albums brought me and still brings me today.

Abbey RoadUnited Kingdom The Beatles
I was 10 years old. I put this album on the record player of my father and I took a very big slap ! It was the first musical shock of my life.

What's Going OnUnited States Marvin Gaye
I discovered Marvin Gaye late. One of my friends offered me this album when I was student. The first listening upset me. Since I am passionate about the life and the work of this giant of the soul music.

The Queen Is DeadUnited Kingdom The Smiths
In the 80s no other album got me so many feelings.

Night BeatUnited States Sam Cooke
This album is probably my oldest musical memory.

Sam Cooke invented soul music.

A Ghost Is BornUnited States Wilco
I saw Wilco twice in concert (Berlin and Barcelona).
They have released five excellent albums ("Being There", "Summerteeth", "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot", "Sky Blue Sky" and this one).
"A Ghost is Born" stills my favourite.

channel ORANGEUnited States Frank Ocean
I read that in a newspaper about "Channel Orange" : "Everything is in this album : love, hatred, fear, enjoyment, violence, sex, unconsciousness ...".
Correct ! I fully agree with that.

Darkness On The Edge Of TownUnited States Bruce Springsteen

The Trials Of Van OccupantherUnited States Midlake
Some ballads of a moving simplicity, but a sophisticated atmosphere.
"Roscoe" remains unquestionably for me the most beautiful song of the 2000s.
