    These are 10 albums that anyone with a passing interest in rock 'n roll (whatever that means anymore) should have a passing knowledge about. They may not be everyone's favorite albums by these bands, but it's my take that you can't form true opinions about music of today without an understanding of what's come before. No album on this list was released after 1973; many "classic rock" fans have heard these albums until their ears have bled, but they're pretty good building blocks.


    Rolling Stones - Let It Bleed
    The Who - Who's Next
    The Band - Music From Big Pink
    Sly & The Family Stone- Stand!
    David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust
    The Beatles - Revolver
    Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
    Jimi Hendrix - Electric Ladyland
    Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
    Bob Dylan - Bringing It All Back Home

    To go w/Tom's excellent suggestion,I would like to suggest:

    Oh,and:
    I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.

    That is an amazing list. And I want to have NightGoat's babies. I assume you haven't listened to all of those yet? I may join you in catching up on some of the stuff on there I haven't dug into yet.

    I think I've listened to maybe thirty of the albums on there. I kind of got derailed by Coachella preparation, but I'm listening to more know as I procrastinate on studying.

    I would like to see these threads consolidated. Soul's seems to be a little bit more focused at this point but if we can conjure a system to select (either by poll or in thread suggestions or even agreed upon dictating by one user) an album or two for dedicated listening each week then I can see this becoming a fun and instructing tour through music past and present.

    Focused? Who cares, we are both just trying to listen to new music, as many others on this board want to.

    I felt like the entire album is drenched in sun. I really enjoyed You Still Believe In Me, and the fading out of the harmonies that come right back in and surprise you. Wilsons voice in general is captivating, and the album made me want to listen to more Beach Boys to gain greater insight into his mind and worldview, as the lyrics in Pet Sounds I think highlight his psychological troubles.

    I found myself falling into the music, picking out very subtle and momentary flourishes within such a seemingly simple album. His voice swirls around you and the music is the tide that pulls you back to shore.

    I had trouble listening to Sloop John B, Caroline, No, and Wouldn't It Be Nice without singing along. They are all classics to me, but I had never heard them in context of the album. Let's Go Away also was a fantastic, and quite literal, interlude.

    5/5

    I haven't listened to it yet. That list o the first page are just all of the suggestions I've received from this thread.

    But I will listen to them soon. I have a week off school in a week and a half.

    You're right. I forgot where we were. Organized discussion has no place on this discussion board and we should just post random lists as has been done since time before time.

    Please resume.

    I would say change the Melvins albums suggested on the first page to Houdini. It's definitely the easiest access point while still being great and weird.

    I don't see why Dan The Automator isn't bigger than he currently is. The man is a fucking genius.

    You should post your responses to each album you listen to.
