Jim Croce Photographs & Memories: His Greatest Hits
Jim Croce was a wonderful folk musician. And this is the album that defines how great he was. It's a wonderful mixture of how he mastered both slow songs of love and fast ballads. Songs like Bad, Bad Leroy Brown, Photographs and Memories, and Time In A Bottle will go down in history as some of his greatest tunes.

Pink Floyd The Piper at the Gates of Dawn
The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, the album that started it all. For Pink Floyd that is. This album is one of the best psychadelic albums of the sixties, alongside The Beatles Revolver and other such favorites. Lead man Syd Barrett's improvised solos and acid inspired lyrics and songs are what give Piper it's awesome sense of insanity. First of all the instrumental songs, such as "Interstellar Overdrive", use beautifully put together guitar riffs and synthesizers to make a strangely catching melody. At some points what you here may not make sense, but by the time the songs over, everything is fine. Other songs are ultimate psychadelic anthems, such as "Bike" and "Astronomy Domine". An example, "Matilda Mother" tells the story of a mother telling her child a story. What the story means however is for the listener to figure out. Anyways, in conclusion, Piper at the Gates of Dawn is not only great instrumentally, but it is equivalent lyrically.

A very good album. Many people will say that Nirvana is overrated and that the only reason that people listen to them is because Kurt Cobain shot himself. There is some logic to that, but that doesn't change that this album is still a classic. It is a great album both lyrically and musically. Not just the singles, the majority of the album is wonderful.

Rage Against The Machine The Battle of Los Angeles
I'll assume that anyone reading this will know that Rage Against The Machine were a nineties group that mixed Marxism with metal-esque guitar riffs and a funky bass beat, so I'll get straight into the album. Rage Against The Machine's The Battle of Los Angeles was the groups third and final studio album. It is a great album by a wonderful band; however, it is not the definitive Rage album. If you want that, take a look at the self-titled or Evil Empire. This album is not the best of Rage because although it has some great songs, the majority of the album is sub-par compared to the others. Take a look at the singles for example. Sleep Now In The Fire and Guerilla Radio are by themselves, but compared to Bulls On Parade or Killing In The Name, the winners are clear (latter two). One of the problems of this album is that these two songs are grossly overplayed, which has caused their actual meaning to become overlooked.

In conclusion, this is still a great album by a great band, but not the best of said band.

Red Hot Chili Peppers Blood Sugar Sex Magik
I just recently got into chili peppers and by listening to their Californication album. I thought "Hey, this is all good, but some of this is too slow." Now I had heard that a bunch of RHCP fans love BloodSugarSexMagik, so I went looking for it. Well I found it and it's exactly what I was looking for. The slow songs are good, but they don't fill up the record as much. It's my personal favorite RHCP album so far
