Muddy Waters- Folk Singer

in 1963 when the folk kick began, Chess records decided to cash in by recording their own folk album.

So they put Muddy, Willie Dixon and Buddy Guy in a studio with 2 acoustic guitars and a stand up bass and recorded it live.

it's as crystal clear a picture of how good blues can be at it's root essence, a timeless portrait of something uniquely American by 3 undisputed masters.

29. Tool - Lateralus

Undeniably one of the most influential bands in progressive rock, there is no other band that has ever managed "weird" as well as Tool. An unmatched frontman, complex time signatures, and one of the best drummers in the business make them a must-hear. This album is their best, imo, although them's fightin' words with many Tool fans.

i also dont think greatest hits have a place here.

Certain bands maybe greatest album is ok, but only a couple exceptions

32. Greatest Hits - Sly & the Family Stone

:D

Anyway, their Greatest Hits album includes two songs that became stone-cold classics that were NOT included on any other album: "Hot Fun In The Summertime" and "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)". If we don't include Greatest Hits albums, then those two songs are never heard by anyone--500 albums, over 5,000 songs, and neither song has ANY chance of being on the list? Hell, no lol...

That's nuts. Led Zeppelin should have 6. The Beatles should have at least 6+. The Rolling Stones probably have 5.

You see why I say that, then. Having a large percentage of the albums taken up by The Beatles, LZ, Pink Floyd, Rush, Rolling Stones, Metallica, and the like leaves less room for other great, unique, "must hear" artists. I'm not denying that many of those albums would make a "top 500 albums list"...but that isn't what the point of this is.

Those are all albums you need to hear though. 500 is a lot. That's plenty of space for the contrarians to post stuff that nobody knows of to make themselves feel better :silly:

But in all seriousness. 500 is a LOT of albums. There's plenty of space.

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - The Beatles (1967)

This has to be on the list. It was a groundbreaking album in many ways, with timeless music.

Which is why I've been trying to get it added for FOUR pages now. :ols:

35. R.E.M. - Murmur (1983)

The album is so good. Laid the groundwork for the explosion of alternative rock that would follow in the 80s and 90s. Radio Free Europe and Talk About The Passion are the gems.
