5.0 classic
Pink Floyd The Dark Side of the Moon
While not as straightforward of a concept album as The Wall, Dark Side gives us a journey through things like time, money, death, relationships, in essance it's an album about human life. It's free flowing, mellow music makes it an easy listen for mostly everyone, which is why it's highly regarded as Pink Floyd's masterpiece, and even one of the greatest albums of all time. It may not be the best but, it definatly one of the best.
Pink Floyd The Wall
The Wall is one of the finest if not the best concept albums created. The music is beautiful, and sometimes terrifying. To tell a story as deep as The Wall is a lyrical nightmare that only Roger Waters could've pulled off. The only 2-disc album that I can sit through.
Radiohead Kid A
After the release of OK Computer, Radiohead was set, they could've done anything they wanted to do, they had the whole music world by the neck and it was their turn to choose what to do. No one would've predicted Kid A (which I think is the best title for an album ever) The 10 track, electronic, and completely experimental album is probably the strangest album to hit #1 in the US. Most will say this album isn't as good and well achieved as OKC, well I say wrong. I give Kid A a 5/5 because it is an album that got so far with no advertising, it's an album that shook all the mainstream listeners off the bandwagon, leaving the true fans behind. It is beautiful and haunting, and it may not be a mainstream stadium rock album, but it's a piece of art.
Radiohead OK Computer
OK Computer's release is the day Radiohead told the world to hold on tight. After 2 albums that really couldn't regarded as more than rock albums, Radiohead blew the critic's and the public's minds with their junior album OK Computer. The album is dense, complicated, but not complicated enough to destroy the listening experience. With amazing lyrics, beautiful layers and textures, OK Computer proves to be one of the best things to happen to the music world in a long time.
Sufjan Stevens Illinois
Illinois is Sufjan Stevens' 2nd album in the promised 50 albums for every state in the Union. This album gets a perfect score because it's a perfect album. It's been awhile since I've heard an album so well thought out and completed that the moment this was first played to me, I had already realized the genious behind it. The album is very well written, has beautiful songs, most of the indie and alternative genres. Hopefully he will finish his 50 disc set, he doesn't seem like and artist who looses his talent, he seems to only get better.
