So I am going through this book and listening fully to all the albums on it... List a bit suspect but it was a present and its exposing me to fabulous stuff I never heard or re-visiting albums I have not listened in a long time..

No cheating... All albums must be listened to ... First song to last ...

So follow also on my journey or join me... I have been synopsing on my Facebook (through 51 albums so far picked randomly) Look me up (Adam Behlman) there or I'll start posting the picks and a silly comment on here too..

So right now 51/1001 - U2/Achtung Baby

    Sorry, two Captain Beefheart albums (only 2-3 pages in, could be more) is a dealbreaker. I've tried and tried to give his stuff a shot, and have heard Trout Mask Replica many times. Can't do it again.

    Very interesting, I don't suppose some of those would be easy to listen to. :lol: One persons trash is another persons treasure. It's good to see lots Waits, The Kinks, The Cure, Joy Division and Iggy Pop's The Idiot on there. :D happy listening!

    Very, very cool that you're doing this. I started doing something similar. Maybe before I reveal what it is, I should revive it since I haven't done anything with it in almost a year. Now would be an excellent time to re-start.

    Away on a bit of a vacation ... So here is some new ones...

    53/1001 - Yes/The Yes Album - Program Rock meets The tri person harmony ... Seen All Good People, a classic
    54/1001 - Miriam Makeba/Miriam Makeba (1st record) - Unreal... Beautiful voice ... Amazing songs...amazing life
    55/1001 - Harry Nillson -Nillson Schmilson- Never heard it before ... Heard the songs but never pit two and two together.. A very breezy listen (had to do twice). After reading a bit about him you can see his influence on later Lennon.
    56/1001 - Queen/Night at the Opera - Thunderbolts and Lightening... Very very frightening ... A classic
    57/1001 - Dexy's Midnight Runners - Searching for the Young Soul Rebels - Only knew C'mon On Eileen.. Lots of the Specials and the Commitments ..
    58/1001 Talk Talk/The Colour Of Spring - Another one hit wonder in US where I missed the rest of it... what a voice..
    59/1001- A Tribe Called Quest - People's Instinctive Travels and Paths of Rhythm - Queens in Da House!! Q-Tip by far the most intelligent rapper of his generation IMO

    And on we go...

    Are you just listening once and moving on? I've found that it takes about 5 listens before I start to really digest an album.

    Sometimes, especially when I don't get it on first listen... I agree with your assessment but I do wanna finish before I die :lol: :shock:

    60/1001 - Green Day/Dookie - always somewhere on my most listened too, but great hearing it all the way through again
    61/1001 - Shack/H.M.S. Fable - Did not catch me until last song Daniella... hauntingly Beautiful
    62/1001 - Last album on list ... I love this band... Amazing front through back.. Funeral still my fave but this a close second.

    how are you listening via rhapsody? I wonder if there's a play list you can share or something.

    63/1001 - Paul Simon/Graceland - Diamond on the Soul of His Shoes, one of my faves and another Queens shout out!!
    64/1001 - Incredible Bongo Band/Bondo Rock - If you like Bongo's you'll love this album!! Inna-Gadda-Da-Vida, with Bongos!!
    65/1001 Country Joe & The Fish/Electirc Music For the Mind and Body - Like I was back in the 80's in the backseat of my friends car... On the corner...
    66/1001- XTC/Skylarking - Dear God is a wonderful single. Did not connect with the rest of the album. Will listen again
    67/1001 - Q-Tip/The Renaissance - From listiening to ATCQ just a week ago, this is a huge step forward. More Jazz and Alternative than anything I have heard in hip hop. Queens Rules!!

    I think any list like this will have some faults but overall this is very good.
    It is interesting to scrollthrough and watch popular music change. Watch the Jazz era filter out and rock come in and then later watch rap inch in as well.

    My biggest complaint is they have some decent entries for 80's and a couple 90's big time metal bands, but nothing from the 2000's. No high on fire, mastodon, baroness or others that may be deserving of a mention.

    Overall though pretty good job
