This week marks the 50th anniversary of the release of 'Revolver', in my opinion the greatest album of the rock era. Others?

Nothing compares to "Aquarium" by "Aqua"

220px-Aquariumcover1.jpg


This brave album pushed all boundaries of musical quality like no album before it.

The highlight of course being "Barbie Girl".

The deep social undertones, particularly my favorite line "Life in plastic, it's fantastic", hearkens to the sudden availability of cheap credit to the masses, leading to an uptick in living standards as extremely high end consumer goods became available to people who otherwise couldn't afford it before.

If you're looking for a riveting and deep experience, this journey through the soul in musical form will rock your world.

"Exile On Main Street" by the Rolling Stones merits a mention.

The Beatles in the eye of the hurricane and the white noise that followed them everywhere. This is when they became legendary, imo. This is what gave them the ability to do Rubber Soul and all of the cool concept albums and out of the box stuff after.

Revolver is awesome. hard to pick a best album of all time, though; i can only pick a favorite of mine, and those tend to change from time to time. for the past couple of years, Desire by Bob Dylan has held the top slot.

Achtung Baby is U2, and it's great, but I also loved Rattle and Hum. Joshua Tree is horribly overrated.
