Disintegration by the Cure is certainly up there.

please?

how about all the fucking poseurs who name drop jazz artists while deep inside, money's on them not even liking the bloody genre itself.

definitely not saying you're one of them, but like i said, i reckon there's a few who get their rocks off by doing so.

insert arrogant smiley here.

You're referring to people who would post a picture of Kind of Blue.

I'm going to name two.

I'm a jackass like that.


Led Zeppelin- Led Zeppelin II:
A cohesive, single-driven record that is responsible for spawning some of the most derivative crap bands in history. The transition from Side A to Side B is one of the best ever.




My Bloody Valentine- Loveless:
The genetic code for almost every good record that followed (especially for bands like Radiohead, Sigur Rós, and any of the post-rock ambient practitioners) was transcribed from Loveless. Elements of the sounds from this album can be heard in the roots of early 90's alternative, and its cult status is (I would argue) as widespread and potent as The Velvet Underground & Nico and any of The Smiths' work.




------


Oh, and for those wondering what Mr.Brau was trying to post at the beginning of this thread, here it is:

While I'm a big Radiohead fan, and agree with the choice of Kid A as one of the greatest, and agree with others, particularly Led Zeppelin IV, this is undoubtedly the greatest album of all time:



From start to finish, I've never heard a better album and one that goes on revealing new layers and new nuances every time you listen to it. If you don't agree, read Jack Kerouac's On the Road and you'll understand.

If we're talking Dylan it's Blood on the Tracks and Highway 61 all the way.
I wholeheartedly agree. Blonde On Blonde has always sounded better live for me than in the studio. Something about it that's not quite right.

Speaking of this btw, does this album count?



According to iTunes, I've listened to this album more than 40 times.

Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues live is heaven.

And on another note, Bringing It All Back Home > Highway 61 Revisited in my humble opinion.

Just for fun, I'll rank his 60's efforts:

Blonde On Blonde
Bringing It All Back Home
Highway 61 Revisited
The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan
Nashville Skyline
Another Side of Bob Dylan
The Times They Are A-Changing
Bob Dylan

Haven't got John Wesley Harding actually

Two picks

Best rock album ever:


Best instrumental album ever:


And no, I don't think putting Miles Davis is supposed to be fancy in any way. I just think he was the most innovative musician in the 20th century, along with the Beatles.

As much as i love U2 i don't think any cd is better than Joshua tree. I am excited for the 20th anniversary.

If I didn't count U2 I would say Fleetwood Mac's Rumours

My own personal album would be Joshua Tree. If I were stranded on a desert island with the choice of only one album, that would probably be it (though it's not my choice 100% of the time...).

Objectively, all personal choice aside, I would have to agree with several people here and say Revolver. It's significant not only as a turning point in the career path of the Beatles, but, on the heels of Paperback Writer, made the idea of studio experimentation "cool" for all of musicdom. It's almost like the George Lucas of music--love it or hate it, the art has never been the same since.

I wonder what it was like in '65-'66 when people who bought Rubber Soul heard Revolver.

Quite possibly the biggest change in style from album to album ever.
