    Album of the Decade.

    Reading the news this morning , I stumbled upon a story where Lady Gag-me says she hopes her next release (due in May) will become "album of the decade." Well, we'll have about 9 and a 1/2 years to find out...the decade began less than 6 weeks ago. Good luck with that!

    Let's expand on this thought, for a moment, or 15 minutes ( about what most pop music artsists should have for their fame), and think of what album we would vote for ourselves for the following decades ( well, albums weren't the BIG thing until the 60's so we'll start there).

    1960's, 1970's , 1980's , 1990's , 2000-2010. 
     
    My choices without giving tons of thought:
    60's- Cream - Disraeli Gears.
    70's- This Year's Model-Elvis Costello
    80's- The Smiths - The Smiths
    90's-(tie)Ragged Glory-Neil Young/Violator-Depeche Mode
    2000-10-American Idiot-Green Day

    This is way too difficult as I must try and be objective:

    60's - Revolver (Beatles) This was the easiest
    70's - Night at the Opera (Queen) This was the hardest
    80's - London Calling (Clash)
    90's - Dirt (Alice In Chains)
    00's - One by One (Foo Fighters)

    Honorable mention (I always have to do this)

    60's - Are You Experienced (Hendrix), Pet Sounds (Beach Boys); Sgt. Pepper (Beatles)

    70's - Toys in the Attic (Aerosmith) Led Zeppelin III (Zep), Harvest (Neil Young)

    80's - Pyromania (Def Leppard), Appetite for Destruction (Guns and Roses)

    90's - Ten (Pearl Jam); OK Computer (Radiohead)

    Interesting choice for the 70's with Neil's massively under-rated gem , 'Time Fades Away' ...I thought , at times, maybe, I was the only one who liked this LP, but sometimes I wonder if I was the only one who ever bought it. Took me years to find it on CD and when I finally did it was  homemade CD-R, but I am not complaining , it was copied very well and sounds great.

    Of all the decades the '70s was the hardest for me to pick(it was a decade of the R&R album).  Like I said I was just feeling that LP today,  I think I tend to get tired of so many of the great ones from that decade which, though great, are over-played.

    60's: Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme (Simon and Garfunkel)
    70's: Who's Next (The Who)  / After the Goldrush  (Neil Young)
    80's: The Smiths  (The Smiths)  / 1999  (Prince)
    90's: Achtung, Baby  (U2)  / Grace  (Jeff Buckley)
    00's: Elephant (White Stripes)

    (have a killer cover to log over in the cover thread from the White Stripes I just remembered)

    I'd like to hear the remix sometime.  The original has a murky sound (perhaps appropriate considering all the water in the settings and the themes).

    Re: Album of the Decade.

    gah, i hate american idiot with a passion. the radio doesn't play good music anymore. for those who included it in the list, i suggest looking into the 00's a little further...there is a LOT of really, really good music that came out. i can assist if anyone would like some guidance.

    i was unclear as to whether i needed to post IMO the most influential or the one that I like the best...

    60's - Abbey Road - les beatles
    70's - zep IV (closely followed by exile on main st. and dark side of the moon)
    80's - joshua tree - u2
    90's - OK computer - radiohead
    00's - Illinois - Sufjan Stevens (HIGHLY RECOMMEND) (toss up with kid A)

    Re: Album of the Decade.

    Interesting, ...we had 'London Calling' by the Clash listed as a 70's LP and also as an 80's LP.

    The judge (me) has decided to allow both as he (me) is a huge fan of the Clash and is very ashamed at not listing this LP himself.

    "The sheik he drove his Cadillac...he went cruisin' down the ville...the muezzin was a standin'...on the radiator grille!!!...SHARIA DON'T LIKE IT...ROCKIN' THE CASBAH, ROCKIN' THE CASBAH..."( I know , that song wasn't on that album, but I couldn't help it).

    phsmith8...I really don't have lots of music from after 2000, I just picked one that I remember...I am getting older and have a fondness for many things of the past, I guess. I am sure that you can be a better judge of that decade than I am....I will make you the judge on anything from 1990-2011, but I gotta keep my authority on music from 70's and 80's...it is, after all my thread."Laughing

    London Calling was named album of the decade for the 80's by several music rags way back when. It was recorded in "79" and released in England on 12/14/79. It was released here in the states after the New Year. It is considered by most to be an 80's album.

    Who's Next is in many respects a better album than my choice, Quadrophenia.  They are both colossal albums.  I love Quadrophenia because of how ambitious it is.  Who's Next was originally intended to be a concept album itself, called 'Lifehouse' I think, but Pete couldn't finish it off.
