5.0 classic
Alice in Chains Dirt
The best grunge album bar none. It's easy to see how this foreshadows Staley's tragic death.
Bad Religion Suffer
I am just an atom in an ectoplasmic sea/Without direction or a reason to exist/The anechoic nebula rotating in my brain/Is persuading me, contritely, to persist rLyrically the greatest album of all time.
Bad Religion Against the Grain
I'm not entirely sure why I love this album so much. It makes me some cool atheist kid, I guess.rBut in all seriousness, this fucking kicks ass.
Black Sabbath Paranoid
I tried giving this something other than a 5 but Satan punched me in the face and told me to stop being such a pussy.
Blackalicious Blazing Arrow
Gift of Gab is an absolute BEAST. His delivery is so incredible that I can't do it justice via text. You have to hear it for yourself. Chief Xcel's beats are equally good, and add the right atmosphere to this album that makes it one of the most uplifting in all of hip-hop.
Bob Dylan Highway 61 Revisited
"Like a Rolling Stone" was named by Rolling Stone magazine as the greatest song of all time. I can see where they're coming from. Then there's the 7 others track of folk-rock perfection ("Desolation Row" being the other major highlight), which make this an absolute masterpiece. 'Blood on the Tracks' nothing, this is Dylan's best album.
Eminem The Marshall Mathers LP
What the hell happened...this record is such a brilliantly well-done display of grandiose violence in music that's its hard to believe this is the same Eminem who made, well, every Eminem album after this one.
John Williams Star Wars, Episode IV: A New Hope
See my review for my thoughts on the greatest soundtrack of all time.
Madvillain Madvillainy
DOOM engrosses the listener in such a dense wall of rhymes and Madlib's production is so involved (it's the best-produced hip-hop album ever in my opinion) that the natural high this record induces in you almost starts to approach the artificial high they utilized to make this record.
Metallica Master of Puppets
The pinnacle of a genre. R.I.P. Cliff Burton, Metallica died with you.
Nas Illmatic
Deep like The Shinin', sparkle like a diamond/Sneak a uzi on the island in my army jacket linin/Hit the Earth like a comet, invasion/Nas is like the Afrocentric Asian, half-man, half-amazin
Pearl Jam Ten
You know why it's called "Ten"? Because that's the rating it deserves. Even though sputnik only goes up to 5. This is pure, raw emotion, a gem of the 90's rock movement and Vedder's "golden baritone" is godlike.
Pink Floyd Animals
This sprawling five-song epic is just too damn good. The best album from a band I absolutely worship.
Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here
Pink Floyd showing yet again why they're probably the best rock band ever.
Pink Floyd The Wall
One of the all time best Floyd albums. It's their most rock-oriented, contains what may be the greatest guitar solo of all time, and its nihilistic message adds a certain philosophical weight.
Radiohead Kid A
This is one of those "how the fuck does a human mind create this" albums. I can't say anything about this that hasn't been said.
Radiohead OK Computer
The best album of the 90's, and the 20th century, and the A.D.'s, and of all time. Nothing I could say here would explain how much I love this album.
Radiohead In Rainbows
A less manic-depressive OK Computer with even more gorgeous instrumentation.
The Notorious B.I.G. Ready to Die
If he's wasn't the best damn rapper period, he certainly had the best flow and released arguably the best hip-hop album of all time.
The Smiths The Queen Is Dead
The crowning moment of The Smiths' career, and a crowning moment of alternative music itself. If you don't love "There is a Light that Never Goes Out", you're not human.
Weezer Pinkerton
X Japan Art of Life
Aptly named, 'Art of Life' covers the full scale of life's emotions in half an hour. Even better, it does it in 9 minutes with the piano solo.

4.5 superb

"A lot of people tell me they enjoy that album. It's hard for me to relate to that. I mean, it, you know, people enjoying that type of pain, you know?"

Kanye West 808s and Heartbreak
Kanye West My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
Second only to Madvillainy in production, this albums is hampered by West's lyrics and some questionable guest stars. Still pretty close to a 5.
La Roux La Roux
Lady Gaga The Fame Monster
Her fashion sense is outrageous, her message can be preachy, and Born this Way is of questionable quality, but The Fame Monster is a superb work of pop music, namely, "Alejandro". Pop's "Like a Rolling Stone", the king of its genre. Yes. It's that good.

Celph Titled The Gatalog: A Collection Of Chaos
The (main) problem with the Army of the Pharaohs collective is that all of the members are outshined by Celph Titled. Some of the members such as Apathy and Vinnie Paz are good enough to not be completely murdered by a Celph Titled verse, but truth be told his verses are always the funniest and most memorable. This huge collection of songs featuring Celph show why he's the best (and by far the most clever) member of AOTP.

Jedi Mind Tricks Servants in Heaven, Kings in Hell
Finally...Vinnie Paz puts some thought into his lyrics. There's self-loathing, ancient wisdom done right, there's even a Dillinger Escape Plan reference. "Uncommon Valor" is Paz's most mature verse to date, and R.A.'s verse is the single best verse I've ever heard. Definitely the highlight of the album, and even the highlight of JMT's discography.

Vinnie Paz Season of the Assassin
A welcome change from Vinnie Paz's standard raps about being a half-machine-half-Muslim Christ-killing boxer (although there's still plenty of that), Vinnie has switched to a more traditional from of braggadocio. He also offers his opinions on serious topics and shows his maturity in a way not seen since his verse on "Uncommon Valor". Recommended tracks: End of Days, WarMonger, Same Story (My Dedication).

This is probably closer to a 3, especially because I'm such a huge fan of Dominos-era Clapton, but "Cocaine" and "Wonderful Tonight" make this a great album.

Jedi Mind Tricks A History of Violence
Vinnie Paz has become too comfortable rehashing the same flow and thoughts, Jus Allah returns and worries that if he doesn't force 50 rhymed syllables into every bar he'll die, and Stoupe's fascination with string arrangements and female vocal samples becomes annoying rather than awe-inspiring.

Not sure why there's a 'Live' here...boring, repetitive, even a quality cover of Kiss' "War Machine" can't save this album from mediocrity.

Jedi Mind Tricks Visions of Gandhi
Vinnie Paz is 'Muslim'. He makes that explicitly clear. He hates gays, Christians, the government, and all of the other stuff 'Muslims' hate that gets them the reputation they have among uneducated bigots. Did I mention he hates gays? Highlight lyrics of this album include such gems as "I like anything related to death". Deep.
