As perfect and cohesive as an album should be

I always think of dark side as a 43 minute song. but don't get me wrong with that
Its Awesome how all the songs work with such synchronicity talking about very powerful topics like Death, Madness, Time in human life, etc.

I Remember how i listen to this album every night in my student apartment and oh my god those were good times of discovering music, sometimes i started listening this at 10 pm, 12 pm, 3am and also go out driving alone with this masterpiece around the city at night

The Level of production is so high, you will think this record was recorded in 2021 (yeah its 2020)
Perfect Album that will start the first out of 3 Perfect Albums

Best Hard Rock Album Ever

I mean come on, every song here is a 90-100 except for "four sticks"
I was at my 2 year in College when i arrive at my apartment and my roomie was listening to "Misty Mountain Hop" at madison square garden and for that moment Led Zeppelin blew my mind and change my musical experience because i wanted to know more and more and discover new genres, bands and artists
Member by member Led Zeppelin is the best band ever and this is their best work

The Best Album By the Best Band Ever

Its so amazing how in a span of 3 years they change from "Love me do" to "Tomorrow never knows"
This album has everything from Romantic Ballads to Art Rcok and Experimental
My only "disappointment" is that the singles "Rain" and "Paperback Writer" are not on the album
Nevertheless another masterpiece from the Fab Four

Best Debut Album of All Time

Lou Reed and John Cale what a perfect and ahead of its time duo, From the Iconic album cover to the production of Andy Warhol and the amazing Art rock and Proto-punk songs that will shock you if you are in the mood
Track by Track a masterpiece that at time of release was real underground music and with cero praise
In my opinion no other album has influenced (Created) so many artists and genres than this one

The Perfect Goodbye from the best Songwriting Partnership and the most influential band of all time

The 2 George songs are AMAZING, John Songs are Excellent but the Medley is Perfect, Paul is almost the responsible for the medley and almost all songs are from him, the song The End closer the greatest chapter in contemporary music history
Im not sure if this is better than Revolver, both are awesome albums

The Absolute Best Concept Album of All Time

A Bisexual Alien with no Gender comes to Earth to become a Rock Star When the planet only has 5 years of Life left and that's only the first 2 Songs !!!!
I Don't want to spoil you with the rest of the story so get your headphones and start listening, for those who knows this one you know what im talking :)
A perfect Record with some of the best songs of in my opinion the Best Solo Recording artist (Tied With Miles Davis i think)
You have to play the record, close your eyes and picture the 38:29 minutes of Creativeness Bowie have with this one because the recorded this and Hunky Dory in just 1 Year!!!

Thank you For all Space Man

For the majority of BEA user's this is the best album of all time

And I cant disagree that much, perfect transition from "The Bends" to a real artistic statement for Radiohead
I just cant get enough of this album and this is not even my favorite album from them, (In Rainbows is) almost perfect record from start to finish, so many emotions, so many different songs and styles, the music here is just AWESOME and the lyrics will let you thinking, absolute CLASSIC

Kendrick Showed here he is a living Genius

Happiness, Sadness, Isolation, Death , this album has everything.
For me this is the best Thom Yorke vocal achievement, you can feel the emotions the song is trying to give you till the first second.
Every Song here is so good but the most important thing is how this songs interacted with each other to form the album atmosphere until the last second of Videotape.

Incredible how 10 years after the band "Masterpiece" Radiohead comes out with this another "Masterpiece".

Art Rock / Experimental Rock / Art Pop / Electronica

This is the album that for a period of time put The Beach Boys (Particulary Brian Wilson) tied with Lennon/Mccartney in terms of musicianship and taking the music in the mid 60's forward creating some all time classics
This is what happens when a genius stop touring and focus just 1 year in a music studio trying to create the ultimate album, the vocals here are so precise, so well crafted, its difficult to believe this album has almost 56 years with some of the greatest songs ever i mean who doesn't like God Only Knows????

Composed, Produced and arranged by Brian Wilson with help of Tony Asher

Art Rock / Psychedelic Pop / Chamber / Progressive Pop

God Only Knows, / I Just Wasn't Made For These Times / Sloop John B

Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some charts can have several thousand ratings)

This chart is rated in the top 2% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 90.8/100, a mean average of 88.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 95.0/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 24.7.
