Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by TerryTezza (2019)

« View previous chartView next chart »

This is my Top 100 chart which is based on albums I have grown up with and have discovered later in life and been played many times. The albums I choose are based on it working well from start to finish and with a theme is a bonus. There is also that element of magic and journey I look for in an album too throughout. There are many artists that I would love to include but lack that album that captures me throughout and some albums that are not highly recognised that I feel are underrated

The Dark Side Of The MoonUnited Kingdom Pink Floyd
This album to me is the perfect album about life and also it was released on the year I was born. I listen to it every year. The topics, creative sounds, guitar solos, clashing drums and great comments like ‘I’ve always been mad.’ You have to explain why your mad even though your not mad.’, are priceless. The songs are timeless in its approach Like Breath, Time, Money and the politically driven Us and Them to the final classic lines of Eclipse. A pure joy to listen from start to finish.

Achtung BabyIreland U2
For me this album is U2 at their best (along with The Joshua Tree) being very creative in the sound and lyrics on an album on relationships in all forms and a paranoid look about society and views on life, like with Zoo Station and The Fly. In the 80’s I was a big Simple Minds fan and resented people calling them a try-hard U2 so wasn’t a huge U2 fan then. Come 1991 and listening to Achtung Baby on high rotation and I became obsessed with U2 and discovered all their music. All the songs are great especially Until The End Of The World, One and even the dark and haunting Love is Blindness. They made so many great B-Sides from this album they could have done a great double album which they did recently for the Anniversary version. An amazing music piece that is perfection.

Abbey RoadUnited Kingdom The Beatles
This album is The Beatles at their best with all shining through and especially George and Ringo. Come Together, Something, Here Comes The Sun , even Octopuses Garden and all of the last songs blending together end The Beatles collaboration on perfect note including Paul's little song of the Queen at the end. Amazing!!!

New Gold Dream (81-82-83-84)United Kingdom Simple Minds
An album of pure magic with an enthereal and mystical sound that takes you into an adventurous dream. A superb and very special work from start to finish. The album captures the early 80’s synth-rock sound in a classy fashion. From the opening track of Someone Somewhere in Summertime to Promised You A Miracle and the magical Big Sleep and even Hunter And The Hunted this album always captures me. Simple Minds have plenty of great albums like Once Upon A Time and Street Fighting Years but this album stands out as the best.

Odyssey Number FiveAustralia Powderfinger
This is my favourite Aussie album that has been on high rotation over the years. From the opening guitar stroke on Waiting For The Sun to it’s twin song Thrilloilogy and Whatever Makes You Happy, the album is about classic rock ballads. Great to see it got voted Number 1 on the radio station Triple J Best Australian Albums Of All Time in 2011. With lyrics like ‘If you measure the world by the mark you make’ and ‘A fine line for the people in this lucky land’, the album is about social, political and emotional issues. Some songs are misunderstood like ‘My Happiness’ which is a sad song about drifting apart in distant relationships and ‘Like A Dog’ being a political protest song about the government ignorance on the Aboriginals request for an apology and more respect.

OK ComputerUnited Kingdom Radiohead
This album captures great emotion on the struggles, alienation and paranoia in a world controlled by technology. A very prophetic album more about today than when it was released in 1997. The music is brilliant with various electronic buzzes mixed with great guitar rifts and heavy drums. This album has been on high rotation over the years for good reasons. Every track is engaging with raw emotion and some great lines like ‘Ambition makes you look pretty ugly’ and ‘the government...they don’t speak for us’.

Sam's TownUnited States The Killers
This is the most underrated album by critics from my point of view and have seen shared views from many others online. It is a brilliant album full of great raw rock songs with some calm pop songs too. A concept album on living in a small town in America and questioning the American dream with topics on serving in the army to drug addiction to relationships of optimism and heartache to self doubt. Songs like For Reasons Unknown, Read My Mind to the more raw rock songs of When You Where Young and Uncle Johnny, this album is a classic but it takes a number of listens to appreciate.

KickAustralia INXS
An absolute legendary Aussie album that conquered the world. The album proved record company managers wrong when they wouldn’t release it as the album. Maybe because the album was ahead of its time with amazing new musical styles and clever simple rifts. INXS created gems from the opening track of Guns In The Sky to New Sensation to the poetic Mediate and the title track Kick, this album is as grand as ever. I listened to this album on high rotation at high school knowing all the words but sadly not the mathematical homework lol.

Demon DaysUnited Kingdom Gorillaz
One of the great mix of music styles and imagination of all albums by Damon of Blur. Some dark tones on surviving the harsh world and fragile environment along with some upbeat classics like Feel Good and Dare. This album has so many styles from hip hop to rock to classical and more and yet it works brilliantly.

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1Australia Midnight Oil
Starting the top 10 is true Aussie icon band at their best in Midnight Oil with 10 to 1. The album covers a whole range of political topics with some attitude and pleads for solutions in this complex world. From Destruction of Cambodia to business deals in parking lots, this has so many great lines to read about. I remember after an Oils concert everyone in the train sing their song U.S. Forces...magic.
