Rush- Moving Pictures 

Pearl Jam- Ten

Fleetwood Mac- Rumours

Bruce Springsteen- Born To Run

U2- The Joshua Tree 

 

Five albums the world seems to agree with me on, all 10s in my humble opinion.

I wouldn't dare argue against any one of them being a ten. Especially not the PJ record considering, you know... lol

With the exception of U2, these are all top ten albums of all time for me. 

 

Which reminds me, I am spinning another 10:

 

Fleet Foxes- Fleet Foxes

Bruce Springsteen- The Promise

 

I shiver thinking just how incredible a follow up to Born To Run this could have been. It would have been glorious, a triumphant double album, a legendary moment in time.

 

And then I feel joy it never happened because it isn't close to being as brilliant as what we got instead: Darkness On The Edge Of Town. 

 

This man...my god.

I saw that! I was surprised and delighted! I got into Rush via an interview with Mastodon, where the drummer said Moving Pictures changed his life.

 

And around the time I discovered Rush I was a massive Fleet Foxes fan (still am). So when I saw Geddy talk about this album I was so happy, it felt like Rush was my kinda band. Like I'm an eclectic listener, and you can just tell listening to Rush that their tastes have no limits

That's one of the beautiful things about them that kept them going for so long. If they'd just stuck to their favorites from when they started, they would've stagnated after Hemispheres (arguably they were already stagnating at Hems, but that take would get me in trouble here).  It does make you wonder if they had been a bit more prolific in their later years what other inspirations might have shone through in their music.

I have had a love/hate relationship with Hems. I now think it's an incredible album that's also THANK GOD the final release in that vein.

 

They really did the right thing moving forwards.

Totally agreed. They reached a limit on what they could do with epics and fantasy and out playing everyone else in 78.  Honestly, if it weren't for La Villa I don't think that album would have the adoration that it does compared to the four around it.  So happy they heard The Police, lol.

Haha my feelings exactly. The album is fantastic...but it's also...honestly...sorry Hems fans...not quite the classic you guys make it out to be.

Biffy Clyro- Puzzle

 

Biffy in the UK are rock giants. To me, this album was the Moving Pictures of the 2000s UK scene. Took them from indie darlings to mainstream superstars, with none of their edges softened.

Biffy Clyro- Only Revolutions 

 

Near perfect follow up.

Taylor Swift- The Tortured Poets Department 

Taylor Swift- TTPD: The Anthology

 

31 songs, no filler. Gosh! 

 

I have come to truly love her latest album, and the bonus "album", the Anthology tracks, is full of brilliance. 

 

Taylor Swift is a juggernaut. And a terrific songwriter.

Yes! I thought it was really good. My favorite songs on there are the 2 singles Legendary and Living Proof, however, the other songs are good. It’s not my favorite of theirs but its nice to have a new album from them :smile:

I don't get why, the songs are all fantastic, and varied. She could have saved these for a twelfth album if you ask me.

 

Still, I do prefer the main album, but The Black Dog, The Prophecy and Robin are terrific standouts.

I wasn't even old enough to experience this, but whenever I revisit this era it excites me so much after knowing what the 80s had devolved into. Of course metal still had and has much to offer, but the major cultural and genre reset that came with the "Seattle sound" is for me the most exciting era of rock music history.

Zakk Wylde famously said the "hair metal" bands had become like Van Halen turned up to 10 in all the wrong directions by the end of the 80s.  The "grunge" bands brought much needed authenticity back to music.
