Default The Prog 100

I'm using JJJ's format for this, except I"m doing one album per post to drag it out as long as possible. Just because I can.

The Beatles – Magical Mystery Tour (1967)
My third favorite Beatles album, this wild ride starts off with the humorous title track, which sets the phsychedelic atmosphere for the rest of the album. The lyrics remain consistently cryptic but the album has wild musical swings, going from the gentle pop/rock of Hello Goodbye, to odd yet endearing phsychedelic masterpieces like I Am The Walrus and Strawberry Fields Forever.

Aesop Rock – None Shall Pass (2007)
Aesop just gets sloppier and sloppier with each album, but fortunetaly for him Blockhead's producing skills only increase. Tracks like None Shall Pass create a dense yet sparkling atmosphere, complete with eery synths, and strange seemingly random voices. Songs like the Harbor showcase Aesop's incredible storytelling abilities, but are offset by lazy, boring tracks like Catacomb Kids. Overall a strong effort, probably the first underground rapper featured on MTV...

Well, Aspects are hard to describe, and don't worry this list is going to be 100 albums, the reviews will be longer the more I care about the album.

The Clash-London Calling (1996)
Joe Strummer turns in epic vocal after epic vocal, on the Magnum Opus of punk, while Mick and the rest of the gang become the first band to dabble in various world pop forms(Lost In The Supermarket most notably). Being the first punk band to dare incorperate pop into their music the Clash sound uncertain at times here, escpecially in moments Brand New Cadillac where they seem like they're forcing themsselves to stick within traditional punk boundaries. Overall the album comes across as a somewhat musically jumbled affair, always on the verge of falling apart. Thank god for Joe Strummer, because without him the album would lack direction, but instead his rough growling of endearing yet powerful lyrics is the glue that holds it all together.
