In all fairness, that album is probably more enjoyable than any of the Beatles albums. It's just soo accomplished, and flows quite magically. Lyrically, it's more conceptual as well.

Quite essential.


Maybe a Shadows compilation might compliment the 60's stuff. That's who so many of those gun 60's bands were listening to.

Personally, I'd put it above about half of the Beatles' discography, and sometimes higher, depending on my mood. Definitely essential. I almost put an asterisk next to it because it's so damn essential.

Station to Station and Aladdin Sane by Bowie should be high on your list. Space Oddity is great, too, but that's probably more of a personal favorite than anything.

Personally I'd put Hunky Dory, Heroes, and The Man Who Sold The World above Aladdin Sane.

Life On Mars is probably my favorite Bowie song. So Hunky Dory perhaps?

Life On Mars does not sound anything like the rest of Hunky Dory, which is supremely eclectic (and, to be honest, a bit of a mixed bag quality-wise), so keep that in mind before purchasing.

Station To Station and Aladdin Sane are his best, in my opinion.

No, Pfan, your list is not weaker. There are more albums there, and better variety. But yeah, you're still missing a ton. The list I posted earlier is so eclectic that it would probably suit anyone's tastes to an extent, so go with that.

Just a tip...most if not all of these well-known records are up in full on Youtube. It's a fast way to listen to full albums, albeit in youtube sound quality - so you can know if you like them or not before taking the time to torrent/buy them.

I didn't think I had as many as he did. Shows my math talent.

It's damn close. By my count, you have 46 and he has 45.

I should count how many I have, but it would take forever. Probably around 150 or so. That's not counting my parents' vinyl collection, which amounts to around 100.

Here are some more suggestions I didn't see mentioned:
1962:
James Brown - At The Apollo

1965:
The Byrds - Mr. Tambourine Man

1969:
The Stooges - The Stooges
Johnny Cash - At San Quentin

1970:
Sly and The Family Stone - Greatest Hits (or just go all the way and get A Whole New Thing (1967), Dance To The Music (1968), Life (1968), Fresh (1973) and Small Talk (1975) too in addition to Stand! and There's A Riot Going On.

1973:
Lou Reed - Berlin

1978:
Van Halen - Van Halen

When I get home and look at my collection I might come up with some more great titles from those two decades.
