My Top 100 Album Countdown Spectacular: 100-91
You like music? I like music.
A lot of you that are subscribed stuck around through my Apple Music Replay Top 100 Songs countdown, so I figured if I did my Top 100 Albums you wouldn’t have an issue.
100. Shawn Mendes by Shawn Mendes: Favorite Song, Lost In Japan: While I’m not the biggest Shawn Mendes fan, his self titled album scratches an itch that I didn’t know I had. It’s a relaxing and pleasant album to listen to that doesn’t do too much or bombard you with multiple vibes.
99. SATURATION III by BROCKHAMPTON: Favorite Song, BOOGIE: BROCKHAPMTON just announced their retirement which is upsetting, so I had to pay homage to them by adding my favorite album from the group to the list. SATURATION III is wild, upbeat, and electric from the first track to the final record scratch; unlike Shawn Mendes’s self titled, SATURATION III keeps you guessing.
98. Paramore by Paramore: Favorite Song, Still Into You: Paramore is a good, simple band; and their self titled album is the best of the bunch. Still Into You headlines the album and is an absolute banger like a lot of Paramores hits (Misery Business, Hard Times, Ain’t It Fun).
97. Whale Machine: Emissary to Atlantis by Whale Machine: Favorite Song, LARPing!: JR Specs teams up with his cousin to create the Whale Machine duo and their first album, WM:ETABWM is awesome. It’s funky with a groovy alternative feel that JR has sort of adapted in his own music. It’s a style that I love and is working for him.
96. Songs From the Big Chair by Tears For Fear: Favorite Song, Everybody Wants to Rule the World: Tears For Fear is okay; they’re not my favorite 80’s group, but on Songs From the Big Chair, they present hits like Shout, Everybody Wants to Rule the World, and Listen.
95. DC4 by Meek Mill: Favorite Song, Blue Notes: I am not a huge Meek Mill fan, but DC4 has enough bangers on it to make me put the album in my top 100. Blue Notes is my favorite because of the opening beat used and how it’s a slow build to a hard beat drop and Meeks lyrics.
94. Sublime by Sublime: Favorite Song, Santeria: Sublimes self titled album is the second best of the bands career and part of the reason is because of a song like Sublime. It was such a banger and was played so much that it was a nice cap to the bands studio albums.
93. Daytona by Pusha T: Favorite Song Come Back Baby: While Pusha Ts next project may be my favorite by the rapper, I have to keep Daytona as my current favorite. The diss track against Drake, the Kanye feature on What Would Meek Do?, and Come Back Baby’s production make the seven song album memorable.
92. The Chronic by Dr. Dre: Favorite Song, Nuthin’ But A G Thang: The Chronic is a staple when you discuss 90’s hip hop and was a lock to make the list. Dr. Dre is very slept on as a solo artist because a lot of his well known work is as a producer or on a feature, but he absolutely killed this project.
91. Big Boi & Dre Present… Outkast by Outkast: Favorite Song, Rosa Parks: Outkast had an unreal six album run between Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik in 1994 to Speakerboxxx/The Love Below in 2003. And they wedged Big Boi and Dre Present... Outkast in 2001 to continue their legacy. The duos funky hip hop sound is so unique and really has never been replicated; especially songs from this album like Rosa Parks, B.O.B., and Ms. Jackson.
