I highly doubt that any of us could make such long lists from the music in 2009. They just don't make music like they used to. Simple fact.
Whizkid suggested 1973 for the next round -- any other suggestions?
This afternoon I was reading this article and this part jumped out at me:
Saying Rumours is my favorite album is about as bold as saying that my favorite book is The Great Gatsby or my favorite movie is The Godfather.
Which got me thinking...
What are some stereotypical "awesome" albums that pretty much everyone is supposed to like, but for one reason or another you just don't?
I'm not as "musically open" as most of you are -- for instance, I refuse to listen to Bob Dylan. I won't even try. Call me close-minded. I guess I am. I know what I like and I like what I know.
Just as an example, I can take the top 10 of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" that Rolling Stone magazine put together and I don't like over half of them.
I'm sorry but (in my ears) there's no way that London Calling is superior to Who's Next. And the first time a Led Zeppelin album appears is at number 29? Give me a break. Isn't it pretty much universally accepted that they are the greatest hard rock band ever?
Well I sort of got off topic there, but comment with your opinions on the RS's messed up list or what albums you're supposed to like as a rock and roll fan, but just can't get into.
