Top 10 Albums Meme

I saw this over on Dewayne Mikkelson’s blog, so I thought I’d do my part to spur it on.  The top 10 albums (in no particular order, and I’m excluding electronica):

  • Led Zeppelin – IV
  • Miles Davis – Birth of the Cool
  • Nirvana – Nevermind
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers – Blood Sugar Sex Magik
  • Pearl Jam – Ten
  • U2 – The Joshua Tree
  • Depeche Mode – Violator
  • Duran Duran – Duran Duran
  • The Police – Synchronicity
  • The Ramones – The Ramones

A bit of variety in this list, but I feel that most of these albums helped define (or even invent) their genre of music.

Nice List! Nirvana and The Police almost made it onto my list. I could probably have made a Top 10 for 4 different genres. Thanks for the linkage too!

Depeche Mode; One of Persian blogs (which is being written in US) introcduced me to them, after that I couldn't leave this great band.

I agree with most of that list. Perhaps I'll do my own. I wanted to point out, however, that "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is just one track on the album "Nevermind." Unless you were referring to a single or EP version. Picky, sure, but I think you might agree that "Nevermind" as a whole was the seminal work, not just the track. Love the blog, keep up the good work!
