What a brilliant idea for a thread,

I'm going to go away now and think up my choices

I don't even like listmaking and rating like this, but .. at least 1972 has to be Close to the Edge and 1973 must be Dark Side of the Moon. Popular and unoriginal picks perhaps, but that's only because they deserve their fame, I think. ;)

edit :

And for 1959, Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue" > Coleman's "The Shape of Jazz to Come" .. I think!

Very nice list you've got there! Was Neurosis or Comus contenders in your list?

First Utterance is definitely a great album, definitely a contender for 1971.

Oh, yeah, figures. I did prefer Tago Mago myself as well. In my opinion, only a very few albums can feel as complete as In the Court of the Crimson King, so I'm checking out Don Cherry's "mu" First Part as we speak. You might be very resourceful, and I say that with gratitude for your listing!

I prefer "mu" Second Part but First Part is great as well. Eternal Rhythm is a masterpiece as well in my opinion, maybe my favorite Cherry album.

Eno was way ahead of the curve back then, and still is. Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy was excellent, too. Way cool list, particulary the 90's.
