Definitive Albums


Every artist has a definitive album.  That's not to say a band can't have more than one exceptional record, it's just that every band has one album you can point to and say "that's the one".  This would be their magnus opus.

With the exception of a few artists, the definitive album is usually a no-brainer.  Ask ten people to name it and they'll nail it.  Starting tonight, while I await the "Six Feet Under" finale, I'll start naming artists and their definitive albums in blocks of ten, in alphabetical order.  This should be fun.

  • 2pac - All Eyez on Me
  • 3rd Bass - The Cactus Album
  • A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory
  • AC-DC - Back In Black
  • Aerosmith - Pump
  • Alanis Morrisette - Jagged Little Pill
  • Alice In Chains - Dirt
  • Barenaked Ladies - Gordon

Feel free to disagree with my choices.  That's what makes this so fun.  More tomorrow...
