Re: The Art of the Album

Due for an addition to this thread.

Greatest Greatest Hits
Title is pretty self explanatory. There are some greatest hits compilations that have just gotten so much play that they deserve their own recognition as albums. A lot of these are party tunes that have mad mass appeal.



At The Movies
OSTs can make excellent whole albums. Guys like Tarantino, Scorsese and others are masters at using music, popular or otherwise to establish mood. Nothing like over music while watching a flick.



Canon
Some albums just can't be argued. Their greatness is widely accepted by the critiques and masses alike and usually with good cause. There's no fighting talent and while I don't necessarily enjoy everything that makes the usual GAOAT lists there is merit to a rock-n-roll canon.



I love professional-wrestling.

Sex Machine and Purple Rain.

I will add Butterfly (1997) and it's what I'm listening to right now:

Re: The Art of the Album

Might as well give this a shot


Part 1 Vintage

These are several albums I grew up on, and timemarkers that helped carve my taste in music. Some of these I discovered later on, but still fit the category

Re: The Art of the Album

Thanks to Blarg for his kickass contribution. A lot of stuff I really enjoy, I promptly whipped out the King Crimson upon looking through.

I actually really enjoyed this record, though its been a while. Great segue.

For Ladies Only
Title stolen from a sweet Steppenwolf tune. Female artists need to get some specific love up in this thread.



With Feeling
Another set with a connection to Mariah as I look at some of my favorite soul/Motown/R&B albums.

You're welcome 777.

Re: The Art of the Album

Update/new entry.

Rockin
Rock 'n' Roll is at the center of everything and there's some strange universal appeal when the rhythm takes hold and toes tap and shoes move.



In Concert
I prefer studio LPs to live albums, production quality usually suffers and they almost never live up to capturing the live experience. That said, here are some that I absolutely love.



This Year
2012 has been kickin my ass so far. Here's eight greats that I'll likely listen to for years to come. Sure to see some other additions as albums are released leading into the Christmas season.



I love professional-wrestling.

Re: The Art of the Album

Wow, haven't seen this thread before, good work. I'm impressed. Not going to go through EVERYTHING, obviously, but a few key points..

- No Need For Alarm by Del is an amazing album, good choice. Not one that always pops up in the top rap lists but I love it, and he's one of the best IMO.

- Germs, Bad Brains, Dead Kennedys? Agreed.

- Death Grips are really cool. Maybe a little overrated, but still sweet. Haven't listened to the new album enough but I'll get around to it.

- blarg's lists are very good, especially including Immortal Technique and After The Gold Rush. Repped (sorry 777, need to spread more before getting to you). Which leads me on to..

- Favourite ever live album, good idea, and one I don't really touch on often. Have to give it to..



Neil Young's Time Fades Away.

Absolutely love this album. The first in the so-called Ditch Trilogy, it may be my favourite period for his work. Young himself seems to hate it, saying he felt he had the wrong band, playing songs the crowd weren't interested in, and just generally sounding like he had headed for the nearest ditch. Maybe that's what makes it so interesting to me.

Maybe one day it'll get an official re-release, but for now, download it (or spend $200 on the original LP), and listen to it through headphones on a cold, rainy day. Can't beat it.

Re: The Art of the Album

@NoGimmicksNeeded, thanks. You and I have touched on Del and Bad Brains in prior posts I believe. If there's one word that really describes what I look for in an album it would be 'unique'. Death Grips certainly fits into that category.

Will definitely look into that Neil Young album.

In the meantime I'll keep adding shit. I realize I'm starting to recycle artists by posting other records but whatever man, who gives a shit.

Last Year
To continue along the same idea as my last set, 2011 was a damn fine year for me in the music department as well.



More
Rap and Hip Hop.



More
Rock and Pop.



More
Punk and Alternative.



More
Hard Rock and Metal

Re: The Art of the Album

Milo Goes To College defines pop punk for me, frankly. You could make an argument for the Buzzcocks and probably convince me, but that Descendents album is basically where you can source the 1994 punk breaking again, Epitaph/Fat Wreck bands, and even the later shit like Good Charlotte or whatever. Just a perfect combination of hardcore, punk, and hating girls for being into some jerk instead of you.
