Top 30 Greatest Music Albums by arialblue (2020)
The story so far...
For 20 years I collected CDs with a fervour. In November 2019, I decided to rid myself of the obsession of acquisition and got rid of my CD collection. After a few moments reflection, I decided that the problem wasn't the CDs themselves, but my attitude to collecting. So, I have again begun to build a music collection, albeit in a much more slow and considered manner. As I buy music, I tag it and rate it, and now, make a decision as to whether it will appear in one of my BEA charts. Clearly this is a slow burning project, and I'm pleased about that. So the charts presented here probably won't truly reflect my favourite albums for a while yet, as I build them gradually.
Any suggestions for future purchases are welcome, and I'm always looking to expand my palette of interest.

A truly great album. Melding house, dub, jungle and ambient to perfect effect, this could soundtrack any time of day, but is particularly effective late at night. [First added to this chart: 12/01/2019]
Such an incredible album. Witty, wrenching and profound, it stands in a class of its own among the prog rock of the day. [First added to this chart: 01/13/2020]
A seminal album in the field of electronic music. Taking its cues from the contemporaneous work of Tangerine Dream, this expands the sonic palette to fully realize the capabilities of the synthesizer. [First added to this chart: 12/25/2019]
Less cool to like than the 1973 original, but full of better tunes and more convincing production.
Not the most fashionable of his albums, but just as catchy throughout and with some great synthesizer moments. [First added to this chart: 12/25/2019]
After near critical oblivion in the 80s, Pink Floyd came back with a brilliant album for the 90s. Featuring many of their trademarks, this combines superb songwriting with exceptional playing. [First added to this chart: 12/01/2019]
A melding of indie, shoegaze and krautrock aesthetics, to devastating effect.
Never one to stand still creatively, Jean-Michel Jarre embraced the vocoder for this often bizarre album. Despite its oddness, there are some truly great moments here, not least on the epic album opener, Ethnicolor. [First added to this chart: 12/01/2019]
Bringing the Bristol Sound (as it was called back then) to the mainstream, this album has stood the test of time admirably, and sounds as fresh today as it did in 1991. Jazz samples, a lovers rock cover and the acclaimed Unfinished Sympathy all come together for an excellent album. [First added to this chart: 12/01/2019]
Canterbury Scene at its finest. Jazzy vibraphones, superlative drumming, soft oboes and superb guitar work make this an essential listen. [First added to this chart: 12/26/2019]
