I'm assuming all genres of music are included in this correct? Illmatic is easily my fav album and I personally think it's the GOAT.

I was actually thinking of going with Illmatic but I'm going with...

22. Sublime - Sublime

Some could argue 40 oz was better but personally self titled has my heart for many different reasons. haha

Stillmatic is up there for me as well.. I remember thinking "wow.. Jay just killed Nas no way is he gonna be able to top that" Then I heard Ether and I kinda changed my mind. lol

threads like this are great to weed out those who bother to read the OP, and those that don't.

I say we ignore those who don't follow the rules. Start giving people passes and all hell is going to break loose. Sitckboi's got the proper list.

How do "Greatest Hits..." albums fit in? I got the band/group I want to go with on my next entry, but I'm struggling on which one of their albums to go with. Their Greatest Hits compilation covers all my favs. Is that a no go?

Thanks to Stickboi for keeping a list.

I'm down with greatest hits albums. They are a good way to get introduced to a band you might not be terribly familiar with.

I'm on board with ignoring people who don't follow the rules. As for the Greatest Hits album, I'd pass on those, or I would have done "One" by the Beatles. I picked what was in my opinion their best album.

May I make one suggested addition to the rules? Only one album per band/artist.

I think bands that create or change genres should certainly be heard to totally round out one's experience. This band has changed heavy music forever, and inspired the invention of a complete subgenre of metal (djent). While I realize that I am in an extreme minority in actually enjoying this band, they are one of the most influential and creative heavy acts in the history of music.

16. Meshuggah - Nothing

The rules in the OP Califan...read them. Do you really feel like being ignored Zoony-style?

Actually, yes, I do enjoy being ignored :yes:...

Anyway, I saw posts like this:

1. Jimi Hendrix - Electric Ladyland (1968)

2. Talking Heads- Remain in Light (1980)

3. Oceansize - Effloresce (2003)

4. The Rolling Stones - Let It Bleed (1969)

5. The Beatles - Rubber Soul (1965)

6. The Clash - London Calling (1979)

7. Chicago - Chicago Transit Authority (1969)

8. Beach Boys - Pet Sounds (1965)

9. Megadeth - Rust In Peace (1990)

And didn't bother seeing how many of those listed were theirs and how many belonged to others :ols:...

But fine, I shall edit my post, sir!!

I'll go with the obvious choice for a white Irishman.

14. Public Enemy - It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back

15. Husker Du - Flip Your Wig

16. Meshuggah - Nothing

17. Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique
18. Blonde on Blonde---Bob Dylan
19. Sign O' The Times - Prince
20. Jane's Addiction- Nothings Shocking

I really think that greatest hits abums don't fit well here. An album is a snapshot in time that shows a band at their peak.

21. Stevie Wonder - Songs in the Key of Life

Disagree. Sometimes a "Best Of" album captures a musician or band far more perfectly than any single album ever could.

I'd vote against the one-album-per-band amendment. $.02

And can we PLEASE put Sgt. Pepper on there? I followed the &^$%^%$# rules!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks. :)

Also, how about an accompanying discussion thread? In case there are albums we haven't heard that we have questions about or whatever. It'd probably be best not to clutter the actual list thread.
