As I previously posted, I’m burning CDs and getting back into listening to albums instead of just playlists. I’m really enjoying it, but it made me wonder what are must-listen albums for others. So what are they? Any genre or time period.

10. Pink Floyd: Obscured by Clouds

This is such an underrated album too - it really laid the foundations for what was to come, at least in terms of the Gilmour/Waters/Mason/Wright dynamic. I’m a bit more pedestrian and would pick WYWH, but this one has so many good tracks. The title, Childhood’s End and Free Four in particular my faves . 

My list: 

Master of Puppets - Metallica (but their first four in general are top tier) 

Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd 

The Fragile - Nine Inch Nails 

Songs for the Deaf - Queens of the Stone Age 

Random Access Memories and/or Discovery - Daft Punk 

Low - David Bowie 

The Score - The Fugees 

Physical Graffiti - Led Zeppelin 

Crack The Skye - Mastodon 

Self Titled - VAST

Operation Ivy - Energy

It's insane how good they were, and how influential for such a little known band that didn't last long. I remember listening to a bootleg cassette that had been copied so many times as it crossed the US to Ohio. It sounded like crap from being a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy and so on, but was still so great.
