I'm one of those who prefers "Revolver" to "Stg Pepper's" and I'm also a great fan of "Rubber Soul". "What's Going On" is one of my favorite albums ever, everyone should own it.

Pompous overblown read. Like the following:

47 Nirvana

Nevermind (1991)

You might argue Nirvana's landmark album changed nothing whatsoever. All their best seditious instincts came to nothing, after all. And yet Nevermind still rocks mightily, capturing a moment when the vituperative US underground imposed its agenda on the staid mainstream. Without this ... no Seattle scene, no Britpop, no Pete Doherty.

Nevermind (pardon the pun) that Ten came out 6 months earlier and would still have been successful even had Nevermind not been released...

I have kicking around the house somewhere:

The Beatles ~ Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967)

Robert Johnson ~ King of the Delta Blues Singers (1961) purchased in the 80s

Bob Dylan ~ Bringing it All Back Home (1965)

The Beach Boys ~ Pet Sounds (1966)

The Clash ~ London Calling (1979)

Stevie Wonder ~ Songs in the Key of Life (1976)

Pink Floyd ~ The Dark Side of the Moon (1973)

Otis Redding ~ Otis Blue (1965)

The Who ~ My Generation (1965)

Fairport Convention ~ Liege and Lief (1969)

I worry about some of those dates :( All on vinyl and we don't have a turntable or even a Dansette!

It isn't a "best ever" list so I suppose that explains the abscence of magnificent stuff like The Stones "Exile on Main Street" or Bob Dylan's "Blood on the Tracks" - which surely should be in there somewhere.

True American.

The "Seattle Scene" started with a band called Green River, who morphed into Mother Love Bone who then became Pearl Jam. Other notables around at the time were Soundgarden, Alice in Chains and Mudhoney.

Nirvana arrived very late onto an already burgeoning scene. It is a complete myth that they were early leading lights.

But I think Nevermind made it to number 1 on the album charts where as none of the other bands achieved this? Could be wrong. Never the less, I like all of those bands, Alice in Chains probably my favourite of them all.

Pearl Jam released 10 in 1991 and it became one of the best selling albums of all time.

They followed this up with Vs, Vitalogy and No Code. All reached number 1 in the US. in fact Vs sold an incredible 1 million copies in its first week of sale.

Oh by the way I am not doubting Nirvanas commericial success, or the influence they had and continue to have. Just their place in the early Seattle scene.

For those youngsters out there - Possibly the best intro to a song ever

Clicky

When sticking three songs together in one single was almost compulsory - Turn the sound right up (just dont ask about the video - bloody students)
