I haven't heard the Lorde album.
Two albums in my top five didn’t crack the top 200, despite being from some huge artists.
Not entirely surprised by The Suburbs, because I feel like Arcade Fire isn’t a well-loved band here.
A little surprised by Sam’s Town.
I couldn’t decide which Killers album felt like it belonged on my list, so I didn’t end up including any of them. They don’t really have a clear all-timer for me, as much as I love them.
I would be so stoked to listen to The Black Parade (and The Con) for the first time
We have loads of hip hop classic threads on here if you wanna check them out. These are the only two from the albums listed, but still plenty to check out!
HIP HOP CLASSICS: Madvillain - Madvillainy • forum.chorus.fm
HIP HOP CLASSICS: Wu-Tang Clan - Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) • forum.chorus.fm
I’d go Wu Tang then Illmatic then Madvilliany
If you’re fine with doing Ye, start at College Dropout
That’s how I felt about Gaslight albums outside T59S. I just didn’t know which one to go with, so ended up not going with any. Even though I’ve probably spent more time with their discography than all but Springsteen.
But currently listening to American Slang again and want to kick my own ass.
I would have said the reverse. But they're all classics, so there's no wrong answer.
I always find that people not super into hip hop but into other genres fuck with Wu a lot
I’m kind of surprised the Joyce Manor s/t cracked the top 200 but Never Hungover Again didn’t.
I feel like, given the songwriters I know you like, you could definitely be a big fan of The Weakerthans
I listened to a different Weakerthans album while going through some lists in this thread a little while ago - Left and Leaving. I enjoyed it! I just haven't been back to their other albums yet, but I'm sure I would like it too.
S/T is their best record tbf
Them and the Beastie Boys are definitely a gateway drug
In high school I have a hip hop hating metal head that first Wu-Tang album and he has since transformed into basically a hip hop only guy
I've heard about half of the top 100, gonna slowly make my way through the rest of it.
Also I forgot to put Astral Weeks on mine :(
e: gonna just bump this record made by a Velvet Underground member, RIYL desolation sprouting warmth & beauty
That’s actually the first time in my whole life I’ve seen someone rep a Nico album that isn’t Chelsea Girl. Cool!
Out of the top 100, I've heard everything but Southeastern, Coheed, White Pony, On Letting Go, and The Con.
More than I wanna count for the next one but I'd estimate maybe like 1/5 of it is unheard?
Oh damn forgot about this. After a quick skim I think that the only three from the top 100 that I haven't heard are Lorde, Spanish Love Songs, and the newest of the two Menzingers albums. Many of these are records that I listened to once, didn't like, and didn't return to though so maybe I'll revisit some of those. From the second 200 there are about six or seven more I haven't heard and lots and lots that again I've probably only listened to once.
my list was perfect
On the off chance anyone's interested, I wrote a little thing about Spotify Wrapped and how the albums I'll forever associate with 2020 came out of this thread:
Spotify Wrapped is our messy soundtrack for a chaotic year
Kate Bush's Hounds of Love is stellar. thanks y'all.
It’s the best and I shoulda ranked it 2
This was a really nice little piece and reading things like this always fires me up to keep recommending old records and talking about them. Never know who’s going to stumble onto something they love for the first time.
Maybe it's because I'm a noob but I'm having a tough time finding this 'list' everyone's talking about.
