100 Must Hear Albums Re-Born!!! Nomination Phase Round 1
« on: October 29, 2012, 02:30:03 PM »
So, I am basically taking over for DB Barnes. Hopefully, we can drum up some interest in this here thread.

The rules will be the same as Barnes...and here they are:

Inspired by Kete's 103 Movies You Have To See poll, I figured it might be fun to do the same for albums. As with the movies poll, the goal of this thread is to generate a list of albums that should be experienced by everyone at least once in their life. The only qualification for nominating an album is that, for whatever reason, you feel it is important enough to deserve a place on a list of the top 100 must-listen-to albums of all time.

Feel free to make a case for your nominations, or even post a song from the album so people can check out a representative sample. Here is a handy how-to guide for embedding YouTube videos.

Hopefully, the list will serve as a celebration of great music, as well as a way for people to be exposed to music they may not have experienced. If it turns out we get to one-hundred albums and feel we haven't even scratched the surface, we can always keep going.

Here's how it works. There are two phases: Nomination Phase and Voting Phase.

Nomination Phase:
Post your nominations in the thread. Please bold your nominations so they stand out and don't get lost in the shuffle.
One nomination per person, per session.
Please post a YouTube clip of a representative song from the album, and include a statement as to why you believe the album is worthy of a spot on the list.
All nominations are considered, and once we receive ten nominations, the poll will start.
There is no limit on how many times an album can be nominated, but if your nomination doesn't win, let it rest for at least five rounds.
A new nomination session will begin once the previous poll begins.

Voting Phase:
The poll will last for one week.
Everyone gets ten votes per poll.
The top 3* vote recipients from each poll will be immortalized on the All Y'all Need to Hear This!!! list.


*My one modification


I shall begin by nominating Ten by Pearl Jam

I forgot two of the elements of nominating:

Here is Ten in its entirety:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/dAPXRN556Ok?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/dAPXRN556Ok?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US</a>

I can't explain why I love Pearl Jam so much. I only "liked" them when this album originall;y came out in 1992. It wasn't until the last year that I fell in love with the band. And it's not even Eddie that I love...it's the guitarists, Mike McCready and Stone Gossard. Mike's song on this album is Even Flow. Any live version of this song will have an amazing guitar solo.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/M6RMc9aA3ME?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/M6RMc9aA3ME?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US</a>

Guitar solo starts at 2:38. Hard to hear, but you cantotally see McCready lose himself in the moment

The other reason I chose this album was because of my absolute favorite song by PJ: "Porch"

Enjoy

I guess I'll take the first nom for Dark Side of The Moon by Pink Floyd.

I don't think there's any logical reason why I should even need to explain why on this one. If anyone has been in the dark for the past 40 years and has never heard of this album, I can write up something... and then ask if you've been living under a rock.

Here's a video sample (ie, the whole damn album):

I assume this means that we got to start over, right?  Or are we picking up where we left off?

If it's the former, then I'm going with Q: Are We Not Men A: We Are Devo by Devo.  It's Devo's best and most influential album and well worth a listen.

Here's a few choice cuts, since I can't find a full album.

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/LuQZ-VVkVu4" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/LuQZ-VVkVu4</a>

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/Cwx_Qq56YTA" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/Cwx_Qq56YTA</a>

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/6gi4Cn5i_Xs" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/6gi4Cn5i_Xs</a>

Fantastic guitar work, inventive and atypical time signatures and a consistent message throughout (and throughout there work).  That message: mankind is devolving!  Devo is a symbol for the future, present and past of humanity (in that order) and how as we go forward, we discover it's the new backwards.  Devo has many good albums, but I think there first is there best, and there most experimental.  It doesn't really sound like other music, and though Devo was one of the pioneer's of New Wave, the first album doesn't quite fit in there.  It's catchy, it's rockin', it's dark and it's by far their best work in a VERY respectable career (and a few weak ones in the late eighties)

My favourite Devo quote, from an interview:

"What's made young men like you so cynical"
"We're not cynical, we just watch the news."

I'd like to nominate Metallica's Master of Puppets.




Quite possibly the greatest speed metal album of all time. From super clean to balls to the wall gain, this is one dynamic album. And melodic as hell to boot! The guitars are huge and the guitar harmonies are a thing of beauty. One of the best things about it is that it's stood the test of time and can run with any speed metal today. This album just kicks my ass every time I listen to it.

The title track is the epitome of epic. Crank it.

I don't mind at all. Frankly, I love the concept and look forward to participating, but I could do without the ongoing administration and number crunching.
