Synth-pop, 1990. The greatest synth-pop record of all time with songs like "Personal Jesus", "Enjoy the Silence", "Policy of Truth". It has a perfect tracklist, amazing music and very good lyrics too. It's definitely a 90s masterpiece.
Electronic Rock, 2007. Quite long tracks, really enjoyable and danceable, great flow of the songs on the Album. Definitely Good.
Folk, blues, 1965. A record which is a prove of the fact Bob Dylan is arguably the greatest songwriter in the history of music, but not as perfect as the following two "Highway 61 Revisited" and "Blonde On Blonde". It also contains one of the best opening tracks of his entire discography "Subterranean Homesick Blues" and the masterpiece "Mr. Tambourine Man".
Jazz, funk, 1979. Although the title track is quite captivating and catchy, the rest of the project is quite basic and not as interesting. Decent record anyway.
Punk, new wave, 1977. An album to listen to for all the lovers of the genre and the music in general, especially to have some fun with entertaining rythmic solutions and glamorous melodies. Finally, not a bad song on the whole LP and a tremendous three track run just before the last moments of the project (Hanging Around, Peaches, Grip).
Pop, rock, 1983. One of the most iconic records of the 80s and one of the most interesting pop albums of that period. "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" is a perfect timeless anthem and songs like "Time After Time" and "When You Were Mine" (the second is a well executed Prince's cover) helped her to become the popstar we all know.
Soul, R&B, 2006. "Back To Black" is definitely a rollercoaster of feelings and thoughts. Although this is an album full of good songs, most of them lack originality and variety and even if the record is vocally impressive, it also sounds like it was recorded during the 60s, so the tracks on the LP result not as powerful as they could have been in that period, but they still remain meaningful because of their quality. In a few words, this is an interesting project but not essential.
R&B, soul, 1969. "Hot Buttered Soul" is not properly a terribile record but unfortunately I found it really monotone and boring. The songs on it are niether pleasant nor unforgettable and probably too long. In conclusion this album is nothing special.
Folk, rock, 1998. I'm sorry, but "sex & drugs & rock & roll" is much better than "tequila, sexo y marijuana". Just not my cup of tea.
Alternative rock, 1996. Despite the fact this record was released in the 90s it still sounds really fresh and actually good. Since the first tracks it's clear that in this album Beck is very inspired and the tracklist is really well balanced between the different moods of the songs. Maybe this is not a masterpiece, but it's definitely a cult.
Folk, rock, 1969. Essential record for all the rock n' roll lovers and one of the most influential albums in the history of music. This is a true masterpiece full of great and memorable songs both lyrically, vocally and instrumentaly (eg. Whispering Pines, Up On Cripple Creed and basically any other track). If you want to spend 44 minutes listening to beautiful music this may be the right LP.
Country, folk, 1962. This record is a vast collection of interesting and danceable songs and also commercial successes like "I Can't Stop Loving You". Maybe it's not an artistically sophisticated album but it's definitely a good one in every aspect of its composition.
Alternative rock, 1995. This album probably lacks of a bit of maturity but on the other hand, it contains impressive songs like "High And Dry" and "Fake Plastic Trees" which defined Radiohead's sound. In the discography of the band this record is in my personal top three right behind "OK Computer" and "Kid A", so I found it really tasteful and quite brilliant.
Indie rock, 1993. Chill record with a really well balanced tracklist which flows perfectly during the whole LP. Unfortunately there isn't a hit "Song 2" (Blur), "Girls & Boys" (Parklife) or "Coffee and TV" (13), but this album is still pleasant and peaceful.
Bossa nova, 1967. If you think 1967 is the year of "The Velvet Underground & Nico", "The Doors", The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn", "Are You Experienced", "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" this album aged much worse than all of these masterpieces. Of course, there is The Voice in it and the record starts with the lovely "The Girl From Ipanema", but there is really nothing more than this.
Alternative rock, 2002. A really well produced and inspired album from the beginning until the end. All the tracks are very enjoyable and "In the Morning of the Magicians" is definitely one of the best songs of the 2000s. In conclusion this is an impressive album.
Indie rock, 1986. An incredibile record full of great performances by every member of the band and with an amazing tracklist. Every song is fantastic and it's almost impossible to pick a favourite one, from The Queen Is Dead" to "Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others". This is easily one of the best 3 albums of the 80s and so an incrdible masterpiece.
Salsa, 1978. Pretty interesting record, perfect for moments of happiness with absolutely funny and enjoyable songs, but not memorable. Anyway, this album is not bad at all.
Funk, soul, 1969. In my opinion this album feels quite basic and not really ambitious. It's a record which I simply don't get, but it's also far to be a bad LP. For me this is only decent, but probably it's just a matter of taste.
R&B, Soul, 1984. The vocals on this record are extraordinary and the whole LP feels like a deep experience full of passion and love. The songs on the album are really sexy and smooth, and "Your Love Is King" is a hit which is still iconic nowadays.
Glam rock, pop, 2016. In this "Blackstar" there is a great Bowie but not as perfect as the David Bowie of the 70s, who was a pure musical genius with at least 5 masterpieces in his catalogue. This record maybe isn't a masterpiece, especially for his impressive standards, but it's definitely a fantastic album, and "Lazarus" is one of his 30 best songs ever.
Alternative rock, 1993. Gentlemen starts with incredible music since the first moments of the record and that feeling gets better going through this album. Every song portrait a different vibe to enjoy and the voice matches perfectly with the instruments in all the project. Definitely in the top 20 records of the 90s and in the top 10 of its genre.
Psychedelic soul, 2019. This is nothing more than a nice album with some interesting songs and a few fillers. This is a record which is not memorable, but on the other hand it is also really far to be an uninspired project, infact some tracks work quite well, e.g. "Solid Ground" or "Piano Joint".
Alternative rock, 2010. One of the greatest albums of the 2000s because of its production and its composition. Listeners of every generation could enjoy this LP because there is a strong connection between classic and original. All the songs are perfectly disposed during the tracklist and the project feels like a true masterpiece: songs like "Desire Lines" and "He Would Have Laughed" are a prove of it.
Peaceful. Inspiring. Dreamy. Hypnotic. Magic. Essential. Breathtaking. Wonderful. Post Rock. 1999. Sigur Rós. Ágætis Byrjun.
Alternative rock, 2000. Really interesting debut album and one of the best mainstream records of the 2000s. Also arguably the most interesting and the best LP by Coldplay. Songs like "Shiver", "Yellow" and "Trouble" are great pop/rock songs both artistically and commercially.
Punk blues, 1996. Good energy, but pretty basic music. Nothing more than a decent record after all.
Alternative rock, 1995. An album to listen to have some fun and to enjoy catchy tracks. The record is solid in every of its parts and sounds really fresh. "Vow" and "Stupid Girl" are probably the best section of this excellent project.
Progressive rock, 1974. The track "School", the best of the whole album, opens this record in the most interesting way possibile and there are also a few other moments on this record where superlative music is played. On the other hand, although the rest of the LP is really solid, it is not enough to be a masterpiece.
Hip hop, funk, 2003. For the lovers of the genre this record is undoubtably one of the best albums of all time. Almost all the tracks are really interesting for both their sound and their lyrics. Maybe the small problem is that it's very demanding to listen the whole LP in one session, but to be honest it's made as a double album, so that's quite fine.
Folk rock, 1987. Quite normal album, which is fine for an easy listening, but it isn't a record to remember at all. Despite the songs are really simple the project is quite entertaining.
Alternative rock, 1999. It is a decent record but the tracks are incredibly less powerful than in "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots" where the band improved on the songwriting and on the composition of an album. In the end, this LP is quite captivating, but it is not their best work.
Folk, 1970. Fantastic album by an amazing duo. Every song is memorable and there are at least five masterpieces: "Bridge Over Troubled Water", "El Condor Pasa", "Cecilia", "The Boxer", "The Only Living Boy in New York" and also the other tracks are great. One of the best albums of the 70s for sure.
Rap, 1990. I am not a big fan of old school rap, so I probably don't get this album. I found the flows a bit repetitive, the chours quite powerless and the productions are too "old fashioned" for my personal taste.
Alternative rock, 1994. A decent grunge record with a few really well done hits, e.g. "Doll Parts". Probably not one of the best albums of the genre or of the period, but still a solid record to enjoy from the beginning until the end.
Progressive rock, 1971. "Pictures At An Exhibition" is a funny live record with catchy instrumentals and a interesting sound. For me it's a good album, but I also think that it is very far to be one of the best live records of all time.
Progressive rock, 1981. The most successful and critically acclaimed record by Rush, which also contains the biggest hit by this iconic trio: "Tom Sawyer". It is definitely one of the best projects of this band, but my favourite one is "Permanent Waves".
Psychedelic rock, 1967. Very interesting album by such an underrated band. Maybe not one of the best 10 record of the best year in the history of rock music, but definitely not really far from them. The guitar is the most satisfying part on this great project.
New wave, 1986. A really well done pop album of the 80s with impressive and tasteful productions. The songs are all very intelligent in every aspect of them and the vocals match perfectly with the instruments. Nice job!
Progressive rock, 1976. Almost 5 stars because of the overture which is something phenomenal. The album has also a fantastic tracklist and the musicians are in a really good shape on this record. Unfortunately there is not an universally acclaimed hit on this LP, so their masterpiece for me remains "Permanent Waves" in which I find only unbelievable songs.
Trip hop, 1999. A well executed record and quite enjoyable song but not so brilliant or innovative. It is a pretty normal album for me, so it could be an interesting listen for the lovers of the genre, but there are better projects.
Synth-pop, 1990. The greatest synth-pop record of all time with songs like "Personal Jesus", "Enjoy the Silence", "Policy of Truth". It has a perfect tracklist, amazing music and very good lyrics too. It's definitely a 90s masterpiece.
Alternative metal, 1999. Just a normal record with simple ideas developed quite well during this project. The album also has one big hit "Drive" which increased the commercial success of the band.
Jazz, 1975. An enjoyable live album, but not one of the best jazz record of that period. The performance is undoubtably good but the project is quite normal.
Post disco, 1999. This record feels pretty lazy because every song is too repetitive and hasn't nothing different from other thousands tracks of this genre. The productions aren't good at all and I found them quite boring and uninspired. Also twelve tracks are definitely too many for this kind of project.
"Brothers and sisters, the time has come for each and every one of you to decide whether you are going to be the problem or whether you are going to be the solution." Well, this record is undoubtably the solution. Absolute masterpiece.
Punk, 1977. A record with a great energy and a lot of fantastic songs. It is also one of the best debut albums of the 70s and a really good one for the lovers of punk music. In the end this project is very interesting and enjoyable.
Grunge, 1991. Arguably in the top 3 of the greatest grunge records of all time with Nevermind by Nirvana and Superunknown by Soundgarden and one of the best debut albums ever both musically and commercially. It contains huge hits like "Alive", "Even Flow", "Black" and all the tracks are just amazing.
Punk, 1978. Of course not one of the greatest punk rock record of that period but a really enjoyable and funny one. Also the song "Another Girl, Another Planet" is an incredibile banger. Maybe too many fillers, but still a very solid project.
Art rock, 1974. This is the debut record by the musical genius Brian Eno. Despite the fact this album is a bit immature it contains brilliant ideas which Eno developes in his next projects. Some songs are really interesting, some others are more confused but the LP remains a good record, but quite normal for Eno's standards.
Pop, rock, 1968. One of the most famous album in the world by the most famous band ever. It contains huge masterpieces such as "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" and "Helter Skelter" and a lot of other great tracks but it is probably not as cohesive like "Abbey Road" or "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". In the end this is in my top 5 Beatles' albums, but not in my top 3.
Indie rock, 2010. One of the best inde records of the 21st Century and one of the peaks of this band. The album is really solid from the start until the end and the tracklist is just perfect with also a great mood mostly quiet and calm. Both voices during the project fit really well the vibe of the LP, the lyrics are pretty clever and the music is always interesting.
Country, 1957. Obviously this record feels quite old nowadays but the songs are well written and played. Maybe not a great album or one of the best of that period or that genre, but definitely a decent one.
New wave, 1979. The songs on this record are quite impressive in every aspect and the tracklist absolutely on point. Also every song is relevant on the whole LP so there aren't fillers. This is arguably one of the most mature and most complete projects by Costello and in conclusion one of his greatest albums.
Pop, 1993. A normal record which is not memorable or very interesting but on the other side it's not bad at all. The tracks have nothing special but they flow quite fluently. To describe this album in one word: decent.
Country, folk, 1971. Very good record full of great songs and a really well played cover of "Stand By Me". The mood is calm but sometimes melancholic and the tracklist is clever and interesting. After all the project is really solid.
The Reggae Record.
Rock, 1970. This is not a Led Zeppelin's masterpiece like I or IV, but it's definitely one of their best projects and it contains also one of their biggest hits "Immigrant Song". Great record.
Indie rock, 2000. This is absolutely one of the most brilliant indie records of the early 2000s because of its great productions and very interesting songs. Smooth album, cleverly composed, quite an experience.
Country, 1963. This record didn't age really well at all. It's just an old fashioned project full of songs which are not so interesting nowadays. Unfortunately a pretty boring album.
Jazz, fusion, 1970. This is what happens when a musical genius like Miles Davis is inspired by the music of another genius such as Jimi Hendrix: timeless masterpiece.
Hardcore punk, 1984. With politically relevant and clever lyrics and an innovative sound this album is definitely one of the most ambitious projects of that period. Songs are really cohesive and the record flows amazingly. Extraordinary stuff!
Punk, 1989. On this album the songs are good and the energy is amazing, but the project is not so powerful even though it is really enjoyable. After all this is a solid record but nothing more.
For me it is not a bad album, but I'd rather listen to the "Venice Beach League Playoffs 1987" cassette, dude.
Jazz, 1957. A funny and danceable record with a really good afro-cuban rythm. Even though I prefere other genres, I found it quite interesting and also enjoyable.
Crazy punk record. I like it!
Probably one of the best indie rock records of the first decade of the 2000s. Already the first song "Zero" sets the tone for the whole album with a lot of energy and also the music is very interesting. Then, after the impressive hit "Heads Will Roll" the project continues in great style until the end.
Eight consistent tracks and overall a pretty good record, but really nothing more than this.
The debut record and already the first masterpiece by The Clash (a.k.a. the only band that matters).
One of the most beautiful and sophisticated records ever and one of the most brilliant albums of the 70s for sure. More than a hour of great music, just incredible!
Really tasteful record with a variety of enjoyable tracks and interesting productions. The overall project is absolutely solid especially because of the great atmosphere of every song on the album.
Some good songs and some fillers, so nothing more than a decent record with some highs.
Definitely one of the most important new wave records of that time and maybe the best album by Simple Minds. This is a project which every pop music's fan really should enjoy, because this is a very well produced LP of that genre.
One of the most powerful end revolutionary albums in the history of music where almost every track is a masterpiece and the others are also beautiful and where the music is as perfect as the ideas behind it. Fantastic record from the start to the finish!
Great record with Layla and other well assorted love songs.
Considering Cale's talent and carreer this record is not so artistically pleasing and memorable as other highlights with the Velvet Underground or by himself. To be fair it is a very well composed album but maybe a bit too simple (even though really pleasant) for a genius such as John Cale.
All of the songs on this record have a peaceful atmosphere and the voice and the lyrics are really sweet, with tasteful trip hop productions. Definitely one interesting album of the year 2000.
This record is certanly a lot of fun and energy, but the all the rest is pretty standard. Still a decent project though.
No guts, no glory.
Pretty solid album with a well balanced tracklist and quite interesting songs.
A more than decent jazz album, quite enjoyable and interesting. Maybe not my cup of tea, but a solid record for sure.
A smooth and sweet album full of beautiful songs with romantic lyrics and tasteful productions. One of the top two Beach House's projects and one of the best records of the 2010s. Also "Take Care" is maybe in my top three of their entire catalogue.
On this record some songs are better than others. Still solid though.
A normal pop album by Madonna but without her usual huge hit, which is not terribile, but it also means that this record is far from being memorable.
Folk influences are really strong on this record and the final result is a quite good album of the late 80s but not so ambitious.
That's a NO for me.
Very simple and normal but still quite good.
A David Bowie quite in a good shape but the following "Black Star" is slightly better and for the British genious this record is quite forgettable. But this means that this album remains undoubtably good.
Definitely one of the strongest record of the genre of that period which is also an interesting evolution of the sound of the band. Their style remains unique and all the tracks are relevant and enjoyable. In conclusion, the cover is very nice.
One of the most impressive debut records and one of the most beautiful albums of the 80s, with a well defined sound which is very recognisable in every R.E.M.'s project. Maybe they will never top this LP, or maybe Green and Document are really close or even better than this, but for sure they set the bar very high.
In the top 10 albums of the last 20 years, without a doubt. Almost every track is a masterpiece and the overall project is simply amazing and undoubtably memorable.
An enjoyable new wave record with really catchy and danceable tracks and a great energy. Quite interesting overall.
Not as precious as Treasure but still a beautiful jewel. Fraser's voice is something amazing and the music is soft and powerful at the same time. Quite brilliant project in the end.
Good riffs, good vocals, good punk: very interesting album.
One of the most brilliant and most influential albums of the 70s full of extraordinary songs and also a very recognisable hit (Damaged Goods). Great tracklist and impressive project!
Kurt Cobain's favourite album. In my top 50. 5/5.
Cool guys, good music, pretty solid record.
A perfect pop punk record of that period: all the tracks are really catchy and danceable but also punky and crazy.
A hip hop classic record made by legends. High quality rap for sure.
Very tasteful techno music during the whole project, which is one of the best of the genre at least of that period.
It's an ok record, just not one of my favourites of the 2010s.
One of the most tasteful, sophisticated and intelligent pieces of music of the last 20 years. Maybe not perfect, but still an overwhelming record from start to finish.
In more than 40 years this record feels like it dindn't age a second: it's still innovative and brilliant nowadays. An absolute masterpiece by one of the most talented and influential bands in the history of music.
Not the best Stevie Wonder's project, but still a quite enjoyable record.
Really not bad but a bit too easy. Karma Chameleon is a huge hit though.
A good example of a solid album of the genre, especially for the early 2000s. I don't think this work is a perfect, but it is pretty interesting.
Alright, really good one!
A record full of outstanding performances by a legend of music.
This is britpop. Britpop at its best of course!
A wonderful colossal!
Cult by one of the best lyricists of all time.
Good job Sir.
In the tracklist of this debut record there are only masterpieces. More than impressive band and music!
Typical album of the late 80s with some good tracks and some fillers. Not bad in the end.
Nine interesting and intense cuts on a solid record for the hardcore punk scene.
Great album with flawless productions and really tasteful vocals too. PS: Pyramids is definitely one of the best songs of the 2000s.
Sweet, beautiful, melancholic and peaceful.
The Dude never disappoints! PS: this one is their ultimate masterpiece.
No caption needed.
There is some rap in this gangsta.
Enjoyable album from the start until the end, solid and interesting tracks overall.
2/3 tracks are true masterpieces, the others are still good but not so memorable. So it is a great record but not their best.
Maybe the best album by Stevie Wonder enjoyable and interesting in every track with also great hits such as "Isn't She Lovely" or "Sir Duke". Phenomenal project, probably a bit too long, but still impressive.
The first huge commercial success of jazz music in the 50s and also one of the most innovative albums of that period.
Unfortunately I found this record really boring and really far from my taste.
Enjoyable record with funny and catchy tracks and a quite good mood.
Hard rock classic, definitely a beautiful record.
For me this record is just decent, but objectively it is quite solid.
Superb album with a great and intense interpretation of all the lyrics and also an outstanding composition: masterpiece!
This is a minor project in the Smith's discography, but it's still good (only not memorable).
Interesting but not special, pretty nice job.
Iconic masterpiece by the most legendary and brilliant industry plants in the world of music. This record is easely in my top 10 albums of punk rock music.
Excellent product, but I preferred "The Band" of 1969 a little more. Great performance after all.
One of the best albums in Prince's career very danceable and with a lot of catchy choirs and melodies.
It's a pretty nice record for the genre of that time, but nothing extraordinary.
Objective masterpiece such as all the first four albums by this amazing band called Talking Heads.
Very good record, the ending part is a bit less powerful than the first two songs which are huge international hits, but great album anyway.
Really nice record, very calm and tasteful for a peaceful and overwhelming experience.
So Damned Good.
One of the 50 most beautiful albums ever and absolutely the best trip hop record of all time (this is not an opinion). Such a wonderful experience!
One of the most enjoyable records of 1968 and maybe The Kinks' best project ever. In other words, this is a really good album.
Smooth and sensual performances on a beautiful album from the beginning until the end.
Very very nice record with a lot of interesting tracks. Probably one of the most important albums of the early 90s.
Not a bad album at all, but unfortunately this is a project that I'm not crazy about.
Great hits and other fantastic tracks on an enjoyable and incredible record, but Iggy Pop has done even better especially in the late 60s and early 70s with The Stooges.
Nice album, but not so memorable even though several songs are really enjoyable.
Absolutely a decent record, but nothing more than this honestly.
Probably the best record by JAY Z and also in my top 20 hip hop albums of all time.
Impressive record with a great sound. The songs are really interesting and the tracklist flows perfectly. Maybe this is not at the level of the best Pixies, but the final result is more than enjoyable.
Too old fashioned style for my personal taste (especially considering that albums such as "Sgt. Peppers" or "The Velvet Underground & Nico" came out in the same year), but not a bad country record at all.
A Forest is a masterpiece of a song and also all the rest of the album is much more than valid, so this is a really captivating and enjoyable project.
I have some contrasting feelings about this project, but in the end I think that it is just a pretty normal record.
A record to enjoy from the beginning to the end, also characterized by a stunning sound. This is definitely a perfect album in order to have some fun.
This album did not impress me, but I still found it quite solid. It's a more than decent record, just not memorable.
I found this record quite boring and without any song that I actually enjoyed unfortunately.
One of the best three albums by The Stones and an incredible masterpiece.
This record is not Astral Weeks for sure, but it is quite close to that masterpiece.
I quite enjoyed this record, but I didn't find anything remarkable on it. So it's a good album, but not excellent.
Such a good album with very interesting and danceable rythms and nice melodies: pretty incredible.
Not my style, but a solid record after all.
Pretty impressive songs for a convincing and tasteful album: this is absolutely a very good record.
A beautiful record by one of the greatest artists of his generation.
Great pop punk album and also definitely one of the best projects by this very cool band.
Not my favourite record by The Stooges, which means only almost a masterpiece, great album.
Interesting album, but quite normal overall.
One of the best new wave albums ever created, full of brilliant songs and also really popular and influential: a masterpiece in every aspect.
Nice record but not memorable: still pretty enjoyable.
Quite enjoyable album but nothing particularly interesting: good but not excellent in my opinion.
Maybe the most iconic album of the last century: Classic.
Aladdine Sane, like Ziggy Stardust, is one of the most ambitious and well executed projects in David Bowie's entire carreer, and so a massive masterpiece.
I'm not a fan of Christmas songs, but these ones are really well executed, so the final project is quite interesting.
You can't always get what you want, but this record needs 4 stars.
Solid record and good music but this album sounds a bit too old fashioned for me. I still like it though.
Some cuts on this record are quite enjoyable, but some others are almost unlistenable for me. I feel I didn't completly get this thing, but on the other hand I didn't dislike it at all.
I enjoyed this project, it's quite a vibe.
One of the most beautiful albums of the early 2000s and in my personal top 3 of her discography: impressive!
The right album to have some fun with and definitely a solid project.
Great passion and incredible interpretations by one of the greatest singer-songwriters in the history of music.
Probably their best work after 'Blood Sugar Sex Magik', so an incredible record but not perfect.
Really tasteful album by a great band, if we consider their early works.
Beautiful: a masterpiece in every song!
I'm sorry, but I find Linkin Park very overrated and especially this album.
Amazing voice and interpretation of a beautiful album.
The best album by Kate Bush and an outstanding pop masterpiece of the 80s.
Definitely a really solid record, but unfortunately not my favourite genre of music. In conclusion, a good album but nothing special for me.
Nice record full of very interesting rythms but maybe a little too long for me.
A pretty decent record in my opinion, but not so impressive.
This record is definitely not a disaster, but it feels so fake to me.
Interesting record with many catchy songs and a really nice flow through them.
My 3rd favourite record of all time and the biggest grunge masterpiece in my opinion. Every track is more than good and the music and lyrics on this album are simply a work of art.
Beautiful album of the 50s thanks to The Voice.
Good vibes, nice music, solid record.
An incredible record by one of the most important and influential pop/rock bands out of the 60s.
