Yea Mo*Te was a masterpiece.

Did you listen to the reissue of Controlled Bleeding? The bonus tracks are amazing harsh noise that even Merzbow would run away from. I should relisten to his industrial metal band soon, Skin Chamber.

No headaches yet, but yea, that ear pain. I have work for the next 3 days though so my ears will have a break.

Done 1/3rd now

Merzbow - Hybrid Noisebloom (1997) 6/10
灰野敬二 [Keiji Haino] - Next, Let's Try Changing the Shape (2004) 6/10
Sightings - Through the Panama (2007) 5/10 Like a more atonal yet less interesting version of Liars
Various Artists - Kosmoloko (2004) 6/10 Jumps back and forth from awesome to mediocre so many times, but I guess that's expected with a 5 artist split
T.E.F. - Symptomatic Harbinger (2003) 6/10
Kevin Drumm - Land of Lurches (2003) 7/10
Richard Pinhas and Merzbow - Keio Line (2008) 7/10 Noise for joachimt. Progressive Noise. Pinhas is one of the members of Heldon. I saw both of them play with Wolf Eyes a few years ago. A fantastic concert.
Prurient - Pleasure Ground (2006) 5/10 Yes... I don't really like Prurient
Yellow Swans - Psychic Secession (2006) 8/10
Pedestrian Deposit - Fatale (2006) 7/10
System Planning Korporation - Information Overload Unit (1981) 8/10 Their weakest album so far but still awesome. Very different from their other stuff. Felt a lot more primitive. I wonder how their 2 sellout albums are like

#1 Radiohead - OK Computer 3/5
Well, it's not bad (especially Paranoid Android) but I somehow have no wish to explore it further and I probably won't become a Alternative Rock fan.

#8 My Bloody Valentine - Loveless 3.5/5
I like the hypnotic nature of Shoegaze and how the vocals are often not the 'lead instrument'. Nice tunes but nothing I'd call great.

#10 Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin [IV] 4/5
I have this on vinyl. When the Levee Breaks is their biggest masterpiece, Stairway to Heaven is great as well. I really like the folk influenced that are much stronger than in their previous works.

#11 Miles Davis - Kind of Blue 4/5
Cool Jazz is really relaxing. I think I'm slowly beginning to get the right feeling for jazz.

#12 David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars 4.5
There really isn't a weak song on this. After continued listening to this I've come o see the greatness, most notibly in Moonage Daydream, Starman, Ziggy Stardust. Star is underrated.

#13 The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds 4.5/5
Just got this on vinyl. One the best pop albums of the 60s. The Beach Boys are simply the masters of vocal harmonies, an element which is among the most defining parts of 60s pop. The instrumental songs aren't that strong though and the album could use a bit more variety. Sloop John B (l)

#14 Black Sabbath - Paranoid 4.5/5
Like the Bowie album I had expected to give this 4 stars after the first x listens but liked it more during the rating playback. The lyrics aren't as stupid as in other metal recordings and the generally slow tempo appeals to me and Planet Caravan is a cool piece of Psychedelia that adds to the variety.

#15 Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited 3.5/5
Greats: Like a Rolling Stone, Ballad of a Thin Man. There's already a glimpse of what makes Blonde on Blonde one of my 5 star albums but the blues rhythm tends to become a bit boring, like on Bringing It All Back Home.

#833 The United States of America - The United States of America 4.5/5
A very unique and experimental Psychedelic Rock album that I will write about in the Psychedelia Lounge, quite eclectic and bigger than the sum of its parts. Highly recommended!

#573 The Rolling Stones - Aftermath 3.5/5
Starts strong and has 3 really awesome tracks (Mothers Little Helper, Under My Thumb, Out of Time) before boring R&B becomes prevalent. Goin' Home could be much cooler and sounds like it influenced one of my favourite songs (The End by The Doors).
Spoiler: click to toggleShow
1. Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon 3.5/5
2. The Velvet Underground & Nico 4/5
3. Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here 4.5/5

5. The Beatles - Abbey Road 5/5
6. The Beatles - Revolver 4/5
7. Radiohead - OK Computer 3/5

Halfway done now! Well, there's still RRR 500: Various 500 Lock-Grooves by 500 Artists but I feel like there's no point in listening to a digital copy. This looks like something that you HAVE to have the physical copy of, as it requires you to play around with it.

李剑鸿 [Li Jianhong] - 三生石 (San Sheng Shi) (2008) 8/10
Guilty Connector - Beats, Noise, and Life. (2006) 8/10
The Gerogerigegege - Instruments Disorder (1994) 7/10
Skullflower - Orange Canyon Mind (2005) 5/10 I wouldn't call this noise. It's noisy, but not straight up noise, more like psychedelic rock. I feel like you need to be on drugs for this.
Propergol - Program Vengeance (2005) 4/10 The samples completely killed this, and there's almost a constant use of samples. All the reviews say that this is the scariest shit ever, but I don't see it. Mighty might enjoy this? It's pretty much a horror movie, just without the movie part. Close your eyes while watching a horror movie and it's like this album.
Genocide Organ - Remember (1997) 8/10 Took me a while to realize this was a live album.
Brethren - Savage Inequalities (2005) 6/10 THEY WILL PILLAGE OUR LAND, TAKE OUR JOBS, AND RAPE OUR WOMEN
灰野敬二 [Keiji Haino] - Saying I Love You, I Continue to Curse Myself (1996) 8/10 What an amazing album name
Merzbow - Antimonument (1986) 7/10
C.C.C.C. - Rocket Shrine (1997) 9/10

Time to get back into this!

4. Johann Sebastian Bach - The Goldberg Variations (1956, Glenn Gloud) 2.5/5

The Goldberg Variations are hard to play, are intersting concerning musical science, but I just don't really enjoy listening to them too much. There are other things from Bach I admire more. Gould plays it great on the Piano though.

5. Ellington at Newport (1956, Duke Ellington) 3.5/5

Bitching big band swing / jazz. Great solos, cool compositions, and the atmosphere is well preserved.

6. Béla Bartók - Concerto for Orchestra (1956, Chicago Symphony Orchestra / Fritz Reiner) 4/5

Great stuff. I don't think I have ever listened to much Bartok (I always assumed it is rather heady and difficult), but this rocks hard. Right on the verge between complex and immediatelly captivating.

7. Pithecanthropus Erectus (1956, The Charlie Mingus Jazz Workshop) 3/5

Good technical play and great musicianship, but as it often with impro jazz elements I admire it while listening, but forget about the whole thing rather quickly afterwards.
Listened to so farShow
1. Richard Wagner - Tristan und Isolde (1953, Wilhelm Furtwängler / Ludwig Suthaus / Kirsten Flagstad) 3/5
2. Clifford Brown and Max Roach (1954, Clifford Brown and Max Roach) 3.5/5
3. Ludwig van Beethoven - "Choral" Symphony (1955, Orchestra and Chorus of the 1951 Bayreuth Festival / Wilhelm Furtwängler) 3.5/5
4. Johann Sebastian Bach - The Goldberg Variations (1956, Glenn Gloud) 2.5/5
5. Ellington at Newport (1956, Duke Ellington) 3.5/5
6. Béla Bartók - Concerto for Orchestra (1956, Chicago Symphony Orchestra / Fritz Reiner) 4/5
7. Pithecanthropus Erectus (1956, The Charlie Mingus Jazz Workshop) 3/5

I started listening to the albums from this list a little less than a year ago, and now I'm almost done with it, 39 to go.
I'll probably post my favourite from each year when I'm done, in a few weeks.

I left the chronological approach a bit. I think I wouldn't be able to stick to it if I would to it in such a rigid fashion.

8. #651 Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Cole Porter Song Book (1956, Ella Fitzgerald) 3/5

Quality recording. Some of those Cole Porter songs are all-time classics and the interpretation is interesting enough and Fitzgerald sings great of course, but overall it lacks a bit of a spark.

9. #111 Giant Steps (1960, John Coltrane) 3/5

The virtuosity and fluidity is great. But as with other jazz being based on lots / mostly solos, it just hasn't much staying power with me and much to grab me. I enjoy listening to it, tap my foot along, and forget about it quickly afterwards.

10. #19 The Doors (1967, The Doors) 4/5

Powerful, energetic and full of wild youthful energy and grandeur. It features some all time classics that are as fresh as back in the day. Wouldn't it be for two or three songs I consider more filler material, I would say this comes close to perfection. I could especially listen to the album version of Light My Fire all day. The whole thing is what I consider - with nostaghia for a time I didn't witness - a perfect time capsule for the culmination of the hippie era, mixed with growing frustrating of a country and generation in undefined turmoil, filled with a strong lust for life.

11. #94 Astral Weeks (1968, Van Morrison) 3/5

Intersting mix of jazzy elements, with folk parts and a great deal of improvisation to it, all feeling kinda hippie-ish and free-flowing. Neat and fun to listen to, but it didn't rock my world.

12. #55 Black Sabbath (1970, Black Sabbath) 3.5/5

Perhaps the title-giving track with its dark guitar sounds is the true birth place of (Doom) Metal as we know it. And it is the track that really stands out to me on the album, with the rest having a more blues rock feel to it, although with a guitar work that is reminiscent of things to come, clearly being an influence on a lot of musician of future eras of heavy guitar music.

I love this album. Got one problem with it though. Every time "The Way Young Lovers Do" is on I'd rather listen to the cover by Jeff Buckley, an amazing vocal performance.

I change my rating scale. I just like the 10/10 system more.

13. #903 The Incredible Jazz Guitar of Wes Montgomery (1960, Wes Montgomery) 6.5/10

Some of the Bop elements are lovely and the guitar play is of course masterful. But see my comments on other Jazz soloists. It just goes on and on and has little to hook me for a whole album.

14. #254 The Köln Concert (1975, Keith Jarret) 8/10

Pure piano solo concert that, as i understand it, was mostly improvised and conceived on the spot. And it is quite magical. Great blend of being emotional and technical at the same time, with both jazz and classical elements. I think I would have had goosebumps in the audience.

I relistened to Astral Weeks and liked it better this time around. So everyone please calm your pants. ;) I still have to say, that my problem is that I just really don't care for all tracks equally. Astral Weeks, Cyprus Avenue and Madamae George are fantastic. Really great. Then there are one, two tracks that I like fine too (Sweet Thing, Ballerina). But I just don't really care for the other three.
In general, upped my rating to a 7/10.

15. #306 Song for My Father (1965, The Horace Silver Quintet) 6.5/10

Harmonic jazz album, with some really catchy parts. But almost too melodic, almost bordering on what I consider background lounge music or „elevator jazz“ at times.

16. #585 Crazy Rhythms (1980, The Feelies) 7/10

Predates what would now be lumped into the undefined alt-rock or indie-rock genre. Not surprising considering the album title, this has some really fancy percussion work. Ultimately a bit unmemorable on a single listen. It's been a few days since I heard it and can't remember much of it, beside it going along very nicely and very well put together.

17. #973 Misplaced Childhood (1985, Marillion) 8/10

I obviously knew Kayleigh from this album, because who hasn't heard it a million times on the radio in his life. So I was surprised to discover that this was likely one of the weaker aspects (although it is a solid song on its own) of a concept album that just could have been made in the 80s, with its unapologetic grand operaticness. Liked this lots.

18. #409 Repeater (1990, Fugazi) 7.5/10

Really cool post-hardcore album, that still has a lot of the carnal aggression and easy accessability of the hardcore punk era, but breaks it up with much more musical experimantation. Strong stuff, with great surprising nice touches.

19. #446 Bergtatt: Et eeventyr I 5 capitler (1995, Ulver) 7.5/10

I think the first album in my progress that I knew before in its entirety. It is not the darkest, the evil-est, the hardest or the technically best black metal album ever. But it is one with a lot of “heart“.
Strong atmosphere and the different vocal styles work really good as does the contrast between the mellow, folky parts with the metal parts. Although the transition between them is sometimes not really smooth. Some elements seem a bit more naive to me now, as when I was a teen, but that's no surprise considering that the band were teens themselves when they made this.

20. #785 Rated R (2000, Queens of the Stone Age) 8/10

Fat guitar sounds, driving rhythms, intersting compositions. So all the things that are great about rock music, and those are done splendidly. Sprinkled with a good bit of crazyness and technical playfulness, with druggy-lyrics and some unusual instruments here and there. This album put QOTSA on the map for a broader audience, and rightfully so. I can't really find much at fault here.

If you liked Misplaced Childhood may I recommend to check out Script For A Jester's Tear and Fugazi, which I consider even better albums.

No problem, mate. I think we've established that you prefer their later work, whereas I'm more into their earlier stuff :)

Kinda nice coincidence that I first heard an album by a band that made an album called Fugazi and afterwards heard an album by the band called Fugazi.
But that gave me a short moment of confusion when I read your post. :D

BTW, listening to Jester's Tear right now. I indeed do like it so far.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

hehe, actually that coincidence did cross my mind as well, I even put the Fugazi band on my Spotify playlist :lol:
Glad you're enjoying the Jester's Tear, make sure to check out the Fugazi album, I think it's actually my favorite by Marillion.
Here's a sample for you (one of my favorite songs):

I'm trying to get back to this now. Does anyone know where to find Otis Redding / The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Historic Performances Recorded at the Monterey International Pop Festival?

there's docs of them. They'll even get you checks on the Criterion list :P

(I think the Hendrix is his complete set, not sure about the Otis)

What a fecking awful voice. I hated all of this, except for Love Me or Leave Me.

This forgettable tripe is #11 of all time? RYM voters are crazy and/or deaf.

'Eventually' is one of the worst things I've ever heard.

Fine but I'd never listen to it again.
Looking through this thread again was a bad idea :wacko:

Btw instead of finishing that list, go through my top 50. There's only 4 noise albums (a few more albums are noisy though) and only 3 albums are 4+ hours.

I'll give a listen to some of the albums I've not hear on this list I think. Though I quite like the acclaimed music list http://acclaimedmusic.net/

Though the problem I have with these album lists is, I usually need to listen to an album a few times to really get into it, if it's an album I could like. I know pretty quick if it's not my thing, but there's good albums where I didn't like all the tracks straight away until I listened repeatedly. It's difficult to find teh time to listen to a 1000 albums, when I want to listen to ones I'm just getting into.


Doesn't seem there's a checking off system, in RYM like ICM, that's unfortunate, I like checking off.

There is this website: https://www.icheckmusic.co/

But he doesn't have RYM on it (yet). I think he will focus on static lists first.

Thanks. Though yeah I guess it's pretty difficult to track an ever changing ranked list.

Especially since there's not a simple export-import function like there is for movies on IMDb.

There's an "exclude albums I've already rated" option on the chart section, which is kind of like checking off a list entry. It does keep updating though.

Lol Einstürzende Neubauten isn't in the top 1000. No noise in the top 5000. At least you got some modern classical works like Pierre Boulez.

He does have just the top 100. Not sure how up-to-date it is.

That website isn't the best :\ I'm not really into all those Pitchfork lists.

He only just started. If you want to give him feedback, there's a topic on the official forum.

I've listened to almost 30 albums in the last week and am just finishing the last album of 1970. Took a break from this for ages because I just wasn't in the mood for it, but I'm getting through quite a bit now. I still haven't heard anything that I particularly like though. I hope to finish the 1970s by the end of the year, which will be nearly halfway through, but I doubt I'll be able to stick to it lol

Yeah music is pretty personal a lot of the time I reckon. I tend to like the majority of stuff from the top 2 or 3 hundred of these lists, though there's some I don't get at all. When it gets past the higher ones it's really hit and miss, not sure I'll progress that far through this 1000.
