These lists get done a lot. Everyone has their own taste, but I can't see how Derek & The Dominos - Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs can be left off anyone's top ten list. I hear something new every time I put it on. That album is rock and roll in it's purest form. It's one of the few albums I see to go back to again and again. The others being Eat a Peach and the ABB's first album.

I'd make a strong case for either Sticky Fingers or Exile on Main St. but I don't think either really is a great album as a whole; they just contain some great songs. Sticky Fingers might be though... would have to play it again.

LZ4 is pretty over-rated. It's like Dark Side of the Moon. I think both groups did better work. Oh well...

I'm the guy who doesn't like Pet Sounds, Rubber Soul or London Calling all that much, so what can ya do!

Black Oak Arkansas, "Raunch 'n' Roll" is one of the top ten albums EVER made? WOW. And that from a guy who had to cheat and list a 10a. just to get Miles Davis on the list. So "Raunch 'n' Roll" is ahead of Kind of Blue. THAT IS HEAVY, MAN. And I was into BOA when I was a kid, even into Raunch 'n' Roll; I sure as hell never in my dreams thought of it on a top 10 list, but then, we all have our faves now, don't we? Just an observation. I usually reserve comment on this kind of thing, but just could not resist that one.

Hey Rob! Over the years I have played Raunch N Roll Live probably as much as any of my rock albums since the 70s. Still one of the greatest triple-lead guitar albums I have heard, great drumming from Tommy Dog Aldridge. Jim Dandy Mangrum can get on your nerves sometimes with his voice, but all in all a great rock n roll live album that I love. I f you noticed, most of my favorites are from the 60s/70s except for Johnny's Unearthed box set and Loretta's Van Lear Rose (Please listen to this one, it is good).

Love Kind of Blue, but I enjoy Coltrane solo more. Which reminds me, I need to add 10b to the list

The House That Trane Bulit - The Story of Impulse Records. Great cd set and also a wonderful book by Ashley Kahn. He also wrote The making of Kind Of Blue and the Making of A Love Supreme. Both good reads too.

I'd leave it off of mine. It's a great album, no doubt, but there's a lot of filler material on it in my opinion.

What does a "hit" have to do with a good album? All I said is that there are better LZ albums. This one just happened to be their most mainstream effort.

And "amazing" is also a subjective term. I'm not amazed by any of them.

I always felt II was more radio-friendly and mainstream. But what Led Zep album before 1976 isn't mainstream at this point?

Every LZ album is mainstream these days. Just that IV seems to have the ready-made hits. I suspect it's the album that serves as most people's introduction to the band; it definitely gets the most airplay. That is why I could never listen to it again. Overkill x1000.

What's an 'album'?


I was thinking the same thing. In the age of the ipod shuffle, albums barely exist anymore. There are some revolutionary albums that changed the music scene on it's own (Kind of Blue, Revolver, Blonde on Blonde, Pet Sounds, Allman Brothers at Filmore East, Nevermind) and some that are just exceptional collections of songs (Let It Bleed, Remain in the Light, Physical Graffitti) but all can be broken up, song by song, and listened to out of sequence by anyone on the subway. There are, however, the few albums that are impossible to break up without losing the artistic whole, like What's Going On, Dark Side of the Moon and Abbey Road. Shuffling Mean Mr Mustard and Polythene Pam is to miss the point.

That's not to say that the mp3 players have made Sgt Pepper irrelevant or compromised its artistic accomplishments and importance in popular music. It's just that I wonder if it hasn't run its course as a medium? There are very few albums I listen to beginning-to-end any more (which makes it easier for me to pick out albums that I favor), though I probably listen to a full album more than most people do nowadays.
So many people don't even buy full albums anymore, we've come full circle back to the 'hit single' days of the 60s (Time Life has been baiting customers that complain about buying an entire album with songs you don't even want - those days are over, without the help of Time Life music). Which begs the question: will there be a new format?

Before artists were limited to under 3 minutes of wax they could cut, then the side of an album (would there have been a break in Dark Side of the Moon at all?) and now it seems they are limited only by what a record company feels the public will pay for. Have we witnessed the death of the album completely or will it change and evolve? Very few artists are able to fill up an entire album with solid material, and the public is unlikely to want more music than they can get in a concert, so it's unlikely to expand much. Still, when something becomes so easily packaged, it usually means it's time to turn the format on its head.

So here's 10 albums I really dig at the moment, beginning to end, that might even be important, too. I kind of proved my own point to myself (not that I was trying to) as I paired down these 10 albums. I started with about 20, and the ones I knocked off were more recent (for the most part) albums that I just happen to like a lot of songs off of (Thievery Corp's The Mirror Conspiracy, Zero 7's Simple Things, Fiery Furnaces' Blueberry Boat, Johnny Jenkins' Ton-Ton Macoute, Traffic's Traffic, Derek Trucks' Joyful Noise, The Band's Music From Big Pink). As I eliminated albums off of the list, I thought about the whether each album is great as a whole or whether it was just an album that had a lot of great songs. Here's what I came up with:

Eat A Peach, Allman Brothers
Stop Making Sense, Talking Heads
Kind of Blue (or Bitches Brew), Miles Davis
Bob Dylan's 30th Anniversary Concert
Abbey Road, The Beatles
Getz/Gilberto
Electric Mud, Muddy Waters
Laid Back, Gregg Allman
Live at the Fillmore West, King Curtis
What's Going On, Marvin Gaye

Two albums that deserve to be on this list are Gregg Allman's Laid Back and The Paul Butterfield Blues Bands' East-West. I have too much. No idea how to narrow it down to ten, but if there was a fire in the house I'd go looking for these two.
