|Top Albums Of 1973|
I actually thought this year was a little better than it was, guess not.
|10|| ||Lynyrd Skynyrd|
I rip on Skynyrd a lot, mostly because a lot of their music is complete shit. And there's probably about 3 songs on this one that fit that bill. That said, the influence some of these songs had on me when I was young make this album stick out for me.
|9|| ||Don Cherry|
Another fantastic avant-garde jazz album.
Waits' first effort is a collection of bluesy ballads. I'm actually surprised I like this album as much as I do.
|7||The Modern Jazz Quartet|
Blues on Bach
I really like the fusion of classical and jazz, and this delivers.
|6|| ||Pink Floyd|
Dark Side of the Moon
This is a really good album, despite two songs really not being very good (Money, Us and Them). Other than that, this was the album that defined them as one of rock's predominant acts.
Selling England By the Pound
Genesis is sometimes hit or miss with me, but this one is a definite hit.
Birds of Fire
This is my favourite of theirs. Some of the best fusion ever. Billy Cobham rules.
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
If this album had stayed more solid all the way through, it could have been ranked higher. But a few weak tracks towards the end damages its stock.
|2|| ||Herbie Hancock|
I think this is generally regarded as his best, and I can see why. This is great, Watermelon Man is ultra groovy.
This is one of Zappa's more straight up rock albums, but it's the best of them all. So many great tracks from Camarillo Brillo to Montana. Absolutely fantastic.
