This took months to finish. These will probably be the last additions for a while. FINALLY.

I felt like the list was severely lacking older albums, so I spent some time looking at some older stuff.

List Addition/Subtraction Megapost Part II

Finally back with part 2 of the megapost. It’s taken a while to track down some of these albums & record them for the list. In fact I added so many albums that I’ll have to split the megapost into a third part!

Also, thanks to my followers that responded to my request post. The album you requested may not be added, but I really do appreciate the input. It might help me discover an album I otherwise may have overlooked. Keep them coming!

So here’s part 2, containing predominantly lesser-known but acclaimed hip-hop albums, among other things.

(R.E.M. 1980-2011)


To all my followers

Please remember that the List incomplete & always subject to change, which means that if an album you expect to be on the List isn’t on it now, it might be in the future!

If there is an album missing that you think should be on the List, I’d love your input. you can drop an album request in my ask box anytime (gimme a beat) & it would be really helpful, especially since I may indeed be overlooking some great material.

So to all my followers: what albums do you think should be added to the list?


List Addition/Subtraction Megapost Part I

Hello everyone! Got a ton of new additions to the list, & I fixed the list up because some of the years of release were wrong, so if you notice any albums posted in this update that were already on the list previously, it might be because the year was wrong or I forgot to add it to the list at all.

Also, it seems I have new followers? Hey new people! (:

Making some changes to the blog

Not sure if I’m gonna continue reviewing albums in chronological order. I might just start reviewing whatever the hell album I want (on the list of course).

Some new additions are coming. I also fixed up some errors on the list like albums being on the wrong year, or albums not even being added to the list. I’ll post the entire new list but i might just do it on pastebin to avoid cluttering my followers’ dashboards (:

This ain’t the whole decade obviously. Trends so far remain mostly the same as the 2000s, with the exception of dub music (dubstep) becoming more popular.

So that’s the whole list! I had to remove the following albums though:
The Mars Volta - De-Loused In The Comatorium
Arctic Monkeys - Humbug

Good albums, just not rated high enough. I bet fans (like me) would rate them otherwise, but unfortunately this list is compiled for acclaim by professional critics ):

The new Arctic Monkeys didn’t make it on to The List but I expected it to! It sucks because it’s a very good album & I suggest fans of alternative rock to pick it up! It’s called Suck It & See.

Bon Iver’s new album hasn’t been reviewed yet, but I added it anyway because I’m almost certain it’ll receive high acclaim.

Accolades!
Total: 589 albums

Artists with the most albums on the list: The Beatles, Radiohead, Miles Davis, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Tom Waits, David Bowie, Marvin Gaye, Prince, Madonna, Blur, PJ Harvey… probably Bob Dylan if I added more of him.

Decade with most albums: the 1990s

Decade with least: 49-59

Most popular genres: Hip-Hop, Alternative Rock, Electronic, Experimental, Indie, Folk, Progressive Rock, Soul, R&B.

Trends for this decade include grunge, alternative rock, britpop, east vs. west coast gangsta rap, the revival of soul, & the beginnings of indie rock & industrial music. Trip-hop also came from this decade, house music grew in popularity.

I think this decade has the most albums too.
