My Top 100 Album Countdown Spectacular: 80-71
Keep rocking and rolling.
80. This Gigantic Robot Kills by MC Lars: Favorite Song, Hipster Girl: For many of those who followed along, I imagine that seeing this album was a head scratcher; it’s one of the best nerd core albums ever put out and is the opposite of main stream hip hop.
79. Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) by the Wu-Tang Clan: Favorite Song, Bring Da Ruckus: When I was in middle school I bumped this album religiously through my massive Sony headphones so I knew for a fact I’d have this one on here. Just an all time great album from one of the greatest rap groups of all time.
78. Retrospective by The Animals: Favorite Song, Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood: You have to pay respect to the greats. This album transcends time unlike others from the 60’s and 70’s which is a trait that the all time great albums have.
77. 40oz. To Freedom by Sublime: Favorite Song, Date Rape: Sublime is a fun and easy band to listen to, but a song like Date Rape sets them a part. The way that they can tell a story about a girl getting sexually assaulted and the guy who did it going to prison and getting thumped in the seat is immaculate.
76. Licensed To Ill: Favorite Song, Girls: While I do believe Wu-Tang is better than the Beastie Boys, Licensed to Ill has little to no skips. The way that they have a rock song like Fight For Your Right with a rap song like Paul Revere was revolutionary at the time.
75. AM by Arctic Monkeys: Favorite Song, Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?: I’ve been on a massive alt rock/indie music kick lately and AM was an album Hugh put me onto. Ever since, I’ve been humming “why’d you only ever call me when you’re high”.
74. ATLiens by Outkast: Favorite Song, ATLiens: I firmly believe Outkast is the greatest rap duo ever and ATLiens in my opinion is their third or fourth best album which is saying a lot because of how great it is.
73. All Killer, No Filler by Sum 41: Favorite Song, Fat Lip: Punk rock is a genre I frequently listen to and this album touches all the bases; heavy guitar, fast paced drums, and lyrics about fighting the man and hanging with your friends.
72. The Slow Rush by Tame Impala: Favorite Song, Borderline: Again, I’ve been on a massive indie kick and this album has been a true rotational piece much like Jonas Jerebko on the 2017 Celtics.
71. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill by Lauryn Hill: Favorite Song, Doo Wop (That Thing): Lauryn Hill is one of, if not the greatest female hip hop artists off all time because she’s had a successful solo career outside of her work with the Fugees. Not many artists can say that. The Miseducation album has fabulous melodies that really showcase her beautiful voice.
