Top 85 Greatest Music Albums by Crhmgs (2020) Unknown

Hi! this is my top 100 albums chart. I have been a member of BEA for almost 3 years now and i didn't even had a profile pic just until yesterday (lol) and today i decided it was the time for me to do my personal 100 albums chart, which i hadn't done either. The reason i'm doing this just now is that i'm a pretty indecisive person and i want to know all the angles before making a decision, meaning that i wanted to listen to a lot more music before making this chart, i know i can eventually change the chart, but somehow that didn't feel quite right to me. At the present time i have only listened around 500 albums which might be a lot for most people (especially in my country, México) but for me it isn't, i wanted to listen to 1000 records at least, before making this chart, but something inside of me, told me that it was the time for me to do it, because if i don't start with this now, i don't know if i will do it later. I will add descriptions in spanish... whenever there's a record that on my native language, but don't worry, i will translate all my words in those cases, and will obviously try to give my insight in every single one of them.

One thing i feel obliged to say before starting is that this chart will NOT be merely based on what albums i might think to be the greatest of all time, i will instead, base the list on personal favourites of mine and records that i feel don't have the recognition that they deserve. I'm doing this because i really want that the people who get to see my chart to discover music/bands/singers that perhaps they didn't know about. I find the top 100 in BEA to be great, but obviously some of the most known albums in the site have already acquired enough points for people to know them, and i want to put both recognized and not so recognized records, to make it well balanced, this means that my chart will be changing continuously as i get to know more music. I will appreciate all feedback/recomendations you guys do... That being said... let's get started!

29/03/2020: I know my chart lacks a lot of descriptions, and i'm so sorry for that, but i will start to write them daily as of now. At the moment the records that have descriptions are: #1, #2, #59, #77 #82 Thanks a lot for taking a look, and for voting my chart, it means a lot to me!

My relationship with Mr. Dylan has been quite a ride so far... And Blonde on Blonde might be my favourite album of all time. I didn't like it that much at first, but the more i listened to it, the more i fell in love with it, it's just a fantastic and well-crafted record. Every song it's different but, somehow all of them fit within this abstract, sad an magnificent world Dylan created. This is one of those records that came in the right place and the right time and along with The Beatles's Revolver and The Beach Boys's Pet Sounds changed music as we know it, forever. but out of all of those records i prefer Blonde on Blonde because it was such an ambitious and beautiful proyect and i happen to think that it's records like this one the reason why i listen to music. Still feels fresh after more than 50 years and in my opinion it's almost as relevant as Highway 61 Revisited. It has some of my all time favourite songs, sometimes one after the other, that's gotta worth something right?

My favourtie songs from the record are (pretty hard to pick, but here i go):

"Visions Of Johanna" is my 3rd favourite song of all time, and my favourite out of BoB it's just so perfect and mysterious and in my opinion it describes perfectly how it feels to not have the words to describe one's feelings while having them them at the same time, if that makes any sense, lol. It feels to me like noticing all the vague details in daily life and seeing the irony of it all, like trying to distract yourself from something you know you simply cannot ignore, it is almost philosophical. There are so many things you can say about this song and many quotes you can quote (duh!) that is almost hard to believe. A masterpiece, and my all time favourite lyrics from a song ever.

"One Of Us Must Know (Sooner Or Later)" It's just a great, personal and emotional song, one of the best songs in the record.

"I Want You" This was actually my favourite song on the record before "Visions Of Johanna", even if it's not anymore, it still is in my top 10 songs of all time. The first time i listened to it, i fell in love and it made me feel in a way that very few songs have. Beautiful, melodic, melancholic and a hell of a catchy song. Dylan at it's very best.

"Just Like A Woman": A song for the ages, Dylan manages to portray an abstract imagery (including anphetamine and pearls) of a woman, whom he knows better than anyone else and might even love. He looks beyond the superficial things and knows she is vulnerable, and just not what she appears to be.

"Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands": Written for her wife at the time, Sara; Dylan made what is in my opinion, the most beautiful gift a lover could ever ask for, this song is eleven minutes long, an eleven minutes long letter to the person he loved the most.

It would be a cliché even if i say that it's a cliché to talk about OK Computer, nevertheless i'm going to try:

The first time i heard OK Computer i wasn't surprised...at all, as a matter of fact i thought it was overrated, i used to prefer The Bends (which is still one of my favourite records) and Kid A. Some years later, having listened to a lot of more albums, artists, genres i gave OK Computer another chance, i was blown away.

The atmosphere that Radiohead creates with this instant classic is astonishing, spotless, dreamy and it feels so alienating that it's even hard to believe somebody made this record. Every track here it's a 10 on my book, i even love "Fitter Happier" which is a track that may seem a little dated, but, i found it to be a perfect type-of interlude, because the past 6 tracks have A LOT TO DIGEST. Within the first second of "Airbag" you already feel this is going to be different from any other thing you have heard before. Paranoid Android might be the greatest track in the record, and if i may say, one of the greatest songs ever made. After the sad and beautiful Let Down, comes Karma Police which manages to tell a poetic story of "loosing yourself" while being critical and wishing the worst to others without realizing where you are standing in, and i consider the last seconds of the song to be one of the greatest music moments of all time, it always gives me goosebumps, a masterpiece.

I don't know if this is the greatest record ever made, but for me, it is indeed the best record i have ever listened to, i don't know anything quite like this and i'm frankly not sure if i will ever listen to something like this again, this is art at it's very best. Well, since almost

Ohhh... god, where do i start?

Thanks!! And yeah i love The Cars first record, there are a lot of great tracks there that i still jam to; Moving In Stereo, My Best Friend's Girl and Just What I Needed, but unfortunately i have only listened to this and "Heartbeat City" which i enjoyed because of song like You Might Think, Magic and Drive (one of my favourites) , but i think their debut it's on another league, I really want to listen to their whole discography, though. I'm pretty much a Dylan fan, and having heard almost all of his material i have to encourage you to give Blonde On Blonde a chance, you won't regret it! even if you don't love it as much as i did, i know you will find it interesting at the very least! Ohhh and thanks for the comment and for voting, this chart is a mess and i surely will change a lot of these records, and will try to add descriptions to all of them whenever i can!

Some nice picks here. The Cars rock, and seeing them on your chart reminded me how fun their songs are. I really need to dig deeper into Bob Dylan's discography. While I love a few tracks from it, I have never listened to "Blonde on Blonde" in its entirety (shame on me!).
