Great breakdown. It’s great to read Jay’s catalog through someone else’s eyes. I think it speaks to his universality as an artist that no two people could agree on a list like this because everyone has experienced his music through their own lens of life. I really enjoyed this. By the way, I’d put The Black Album at #1 based on my own journey with Jay’s catalog. It’s the ROC!
Co-founder of Def Jam always trumps one part of a three part 60′s folk band that didn’t release an album until the 60′s were over.
Hey David Crosby! Rick Rubin has done a lot more than you to change the face of music. Sure you were part of the 60′s and bla bla bla but by the time you came around you were just part of an existing movement. Rubin on the other hand kickstarted a movement that changed everything, not just music. By the way, Rubin is known for breathing new life into tired careers. Obviously you know you’re all washed up if you hired him.
I can’t stand the user interface on Spotify. I’ve tried out all of the different services and in my opinion, Rdio is the best one out there. I’d rather pay a few bucks a month than deal with Spotify’s interface and all of the advertisements. Hopefully Spotify ends up like Myspace… breaks some new ground, but is ultimately replaced by a superior and more popular service.
He should record an album with Metallica and hail it as the greatest work of the last twenty years.
What about the Finally LP? Maybe not an album but it’s such a good collection it deserves making the list.
Just called the 800 number, in four to six weeks I’ll be rockin’ some PUNK on my discman!
Hey Y’all, as 916-er who recently relocated to NYC, it’s awesome to see my old ‘hood repped on my fave blog ever! Good call on featuring Sister Crayon. I’ve been touting them for a long time and always knew that Terra would one day be a star. As to Tres Hermanas, yes, it’s home to the best Mexi in Sactown and also home to the best bartender in Sactown. (Those margaritas will put you to bed.) Great to see Phono Select make the list as well. They are the closest thing to Other Music on the West Coast. Lastly, shout out to The Rum District peeps!
Hate to be predictable but I’ve gotta go with Dark Side of the Moon. It’s like cold water running through my vanes every time I hear it.
“Let Down” is right.
