It has some great songs, many OK ones and even some that are among The Beatles' worst, but the album as a whole sounds spontaneous and creatively boundless. With The Beatles, even the "weak" songs are good... or at least fun.(First added to this chart: 06/28/2012)

For many,this is the best Latin American album ever. Rubén Blades is an intelligent, literate composer and in this record he is at his height, offering 7 instant classics that are not only enjoyable but relevant. The songwriting is extremely well crafted and it can make people laugh, cry or reflect by recounting either everyday life stories or important social issues of Latin America.(First added to this chart: 09/14/2012)

This album is considred by many as strange. I agree with that, but if you happen to be in the right mood for accepting Miles Davis being experimental, then you will be blown off by the music and the musical ideas.(First added to this chart: 09/14/2012)

The ultimate Soul concept album, it has crossed genre borders and is frequently listed as one of the best albums ever based on the pure quality of its music, the effortless way in which the songs flow, the voice of Marvin Gaye and the interesting lyrics. This is one of my 2 all time best "on the road" albums, along with "American Beauty" of the Grateful Dead.(First added to this chart: 06/28/2012)

What an amazing collection of songs! George Harrison shines, with arguably the two highlights while the meddles in the "B side" rank among The Beatles´ best.

Sometimes I forget how good the Beatles are until I play this record after a while of not listening to it, and it just blows my mind.

In addition, the artwork is iconic with Paul barefoot and the VW with the 28IF plates, etc, etc...(First added to this chart: 06/28/2012)

I have heard this record hundreds of times and it just keeps being great. The powerful mix of amazing guitar riffs, bass lines and drums with some very fun lyrics makes it a classic. Listening to the Pixies always makes me say "screw everything"... and that's a great feeling :)(First added to this chart: 06/03/2018)

Very experimental and daring in its time. The name of the album really suits its music and Coleman's interpretations are very avant-garde.(First added to this chart: 09/14/2012)

"A Tabua de Esmeralda" has lots of great songs like: "Os Alquimistas Estao Chegando", "O Homen Da Gravata Florida", "Minha Teimosia, Uma Arma Para Te Conquistar" and "Zumbi". I like the mix of Brazilian rhythms and topics with 70's style sounds, especially funk.(First added to this chart: 07/04/2012)

Beautiful songs that create a dreamy mood. You can spend the whole fall and winter listening to this album as there is no better music to match a beautiful dark, grey and rainy Vancouver day.(First added to this chart: 11/16/2015)

It's a great chart full of stuff i'll need to look up! You should check out the album O LP by the Brasilan jazz band Os Cobras if you haven't yet. You'll probably really like it!

A very nice chart, except The White Album (I hate "Ob la di, Ob la da", the worst song I have ever heard in my life !).

Excellent stuff! Nice to see jazz up there too. I just wanted to point out that the surfer rosa you have up there is actually a weird compilation of surfer rosa and come on pilgrim. If you meant just surfer rosa as Im guessing you should make that change
