Sort by: Rating | Release Date | Rating Date | Name5.0 classicEminem The Marshall Mathers LPit's got so much anger, so much hilariousness, so much line-crossing, and such fantastic production that the immense skill that goes into em's lyrics (the continual multi-syllable rhyme schemes most notably) often goes overlooked.Kanye West My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasyi can't even believe the balls, expansiveness, and replay value of this album.Neutral Milk Hotel In the Aeroplane Over the SeaWeezer Weezerjust an unbelievable debut. wonderfully-mixed, simple, yet rewarding. plus, i truly think that "only in dreams" is one of the greatest, most emotional songs i'll EVER hear. EVER.4.5 superbBen Folds Five Whatever and Ever, Amena very nice, pleasant little album with a handful of memorable tracks. nothing
groundbreaking and it has a few duds, but for the most part just a solid album.
EDIT: fuck, this is good. i still think there are duds, but most of the non-duds are
simply terrific.Big L Lifestylez ov da Poor & DangerousBon Iver For Emma, Forever AgoColdplay Parachutessometimes uplifting, sometimes downright depressing, this album came as a surprisingly good output when i first tried to get into coldplay.Coldplay Viva la Vida or Death and All His FriendsDr. Dre 2001dear god, these beats. however many years pass, i can't imagine any person or trend (especially dre himself - i'm sure detox is RIGHT around the corner...) in hip-hop making this record sound dated. stylistically, of course, the content, features, and post-g funk bumping sound of these tracks many not exactly be "in," but everything sounds so lively and fresh that i'm confident in this album's ability to inspire and awe upcoming producers for decades to come.Eminem The Slim Shady LPwhile the marshall mathers lp clearly meant more and at times was just as shocking/funny (and for an actual purpose, unlike some of the misses found on encore or relapse), the slim shady lp has got to be the most lyrically-entertaining album i've ever heard. honestly, who else prior to this was writing lines like, "you thought i was ill, well now i'm even moreso / shit, i got full-blown aids and a sore throat. / i've got a wardrobe with an orange robe / i'm in the fourth row signing autographs at your show." not only is this whole album packed with funny, irreverent material, but the complexity of rhyming presented was years ahead of its time. i used to consider the mmlp this album's superior, but it's getting harder to do so with each listen.Kanye West Late RegistrationMetallica Master of PuppetsOasis Definitely MaybePink Floyd The Dark Side of the MoonRadiohead OK Computeri remember the day i first listened to this i gave it a 2.5. my oh my how things have changed.Sublime Sublimewas my favorite album of all time for a couple years (until the marshall mathers lp blew my mind and then some). every single song is at least a 4-star and this album is completely flawless. rip brad and this new "sublime w/ rome" shit is a disgrace.Sum 41 ChuckThe Beatles Abbey RoadThe Beatles LoveThe Offspring Ixnay on the HombreThe Offspring Americanathe perfect mix of punk and pop/punk, plus with some standout non-traitional tracks for a band like them. this is perhaps the first cd i ever loved.The Smashing Pumpkins Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadnessafter much thought and deliberations (and listening), fuck it, i 5'd this. initially, i think i gave this a 2.5 several years ago when i first heard it. but as i've grown as a musician and listener alike, i've come to truly appreciate the absolute majesty and ambition of this album. 28 songs and maybe 2 or 3 i don't love. what an album.redit: 4.5. meh.Third Eye Blind Third Eye Blind4.0 excellentAlice in Chains MTV UnpluggedArcade Fire FuneralBjork HomogenicBlack Sabbath ParanoidBoston BostonColdplay A Rush of Blood to the HeadColdplay Live 2003Coldplay Prospekt's MarchDavid Bowie The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust...Deltron 3030 Deltron 3030Earl Sweatshirt EARLEminem Curtain Call: The HitsEminem The Slim Shady EPEminem InfiniteEminem Relapseif everyone who gave this album less than a 4 sat there and paid attention to the insane rrhyme schemes, i guarantee they'd reconsider their rating. i mean, on "my mom," for rexample, he rhymes "mother would wanna see her" (all 7 syllables) 8 times in a row, and on 3 ra.m. he literally has 25 straight lines ending with a rhyme of "audience." and also, anyone rwho says "thank god shady got his edge back on recovery" or some shit is a fucking idiot or rjust ignorant as hell. 90% of this album's contents are em rapping drugs, raping lesbians, rand killing people, etc. i don't really give a fuck if this album doesn't have much of a rpoint to it, cuz, save "if i had" and "rock bottom," did the slim shady lp?Eminem Relapse: RefillGorillaz Demon DaysJay-Z The BlueprintJay-Z and Kanye West Watch the ThroneJeff Buckley GraceKanye West The College DropoutKanye West GraduationKanye West 808s and HeartbreakKendrick Lamar good kid, m.A.A.d cityLudwig van Beethoven "Moonlight" Piano Sonata No. 14 in C♯ minor, Op. 27, No. 2MF DOOM MM..

No debate, some pioneering tones going on. HOWEVER, as an actual album, Electric Ladyland has no cohesive value whatsoever. There are multiple extended blues jams that have no place on any sort of studio album; I can't see how Jimi just "jamming out" for 12 minutes constitutes a song, especially when it was very likely all improvisational and recorded in one take. Even many of the tracks with shorter run times suffer from being little more than jamming for jamming's sake. Innovative sounds: check; ahead-of-its-time guitar work: check; an utter lack of direction as an album: double-check.The Offspring Conspiracy of Onethe fact that this is the ONLY soundoff for an album w/ 500+ ratings pretty much indicates how unmemorable it is. this is a surprisingly weak effort from a band whose previous albums (especally ixnay and americana) were very solid. furthermore, the 3.2 rating baffles me. as a whole, this album is just very safe and forgettable, a 3 at best.The Smashing Pumpkins OceaniaThe Strokes Room on Fire2.0 poor3 Doors Down Away from the Sun3 Doors Down Seventeen DaysEminem The Marshall Mathers LP 2Flobots Fight with ToolsKiD CuDi Man On The Moon: The End Of Daywhat exactly is kid cudi's appeal? i get that this is more or less a concept album and i'm a fan of a good handful of the beats on this album, but i mean what's the big fucking deal with kid cudi? he's boring as shit and lacks the difficulty of many of his peers (especially given the almost standard practice of multi-syllable, extended rhyme sequences these days) from a lyrical perspective. and singing-wise, he's just as much of an underwhelming yawn. like even the aforementioned beats that saved this album from getting a sub-2 weren't cudi's doing, cuz he merely co-produced a few songs on this overly-long mess. so, again, what the hell is kid cudi's appeal?Linkin Park Minutes to MidnightThe Offspring Rise and Fall, Rage and GraceThe White Stripes Get Behind Me SatanWeezer The Green Album1.5 very poorGuns N' Roses Chinese DemocracySimple Plan No Pads, No Helmets... Just Balls1.0 awfulbrokeNCYDE I'm Not a Fan, but the Kids Like It!Deep Purple Rapture of the Deepthere are few people on this earth i hate more than ian gillan. he is an ATROCIOUS singer and thinks he's hot shit, trying to add unnecessarily over-the-top bluesy fills into basically every song in which he's ever sung. and holy shit, the fact that he has his own band called "gillan" is just hilarious. i hate pretty much every lead singer (at least ones who just sing and don't actually play any instruments) that does a solo project and names it simply their own name. what the fuck is that shit? w/o the actual MUSICIANS in your band, you'd just be acapella, so how the fuck can you name the entire band just "gillan" or "ozzy osbourne," etc. and granted this is a "deep purple" album, but unfortunately ian gillan's solo career doesn't exist on this website, so i pretty much had to use this album to rip on him. and not only do ian gillan's attempts at bluesy profoundness irritate me to no end, but the guitar and organ work (songwriting-wise, not in terms of skill) are just horrendous as well. this album is the epitome of shit.
and i know what you're thinking, "why do you listen to it then?" well my dad and i both play the drums at my house, and over the past 5 years or so i've had the displeasure of hearing this trash over and over and over again. it is quite possibly the single most annoying music i've ever heard (and i used to have to listen to nickelback at work).Melissa Etheridge Fearless LoveMillionaires Bling Bling Bling!laughably bad. .Nickelback Dark HorseSoulja Boy Souljaboytellem.comSublime with Rome Yours Truly@daniel johnson, here's the review: "the least important 2/3 of sublime" w/ rome disgrace brad's legacy w/ a poppy shitfest.Van Halen 1984i can't even begin to describe how much i hate this band.
