The Who - Who's Next (1971)

This album is a staple of classic rock, and many of the songs are recognizable for the constant play on radio stations, films and commercials. I still remember "Bargain" from I think it was Chevy commercials. I'm sure everyone remembers Fred Durst doing the cover of Behind Blue Eyes for the ridiculous Halle Berry movie. Anyway, The Who has a shitload of great music that even I have yet to discover, but this album's sick.
  1. "Baba O'Riley" – 5:11
  2. "Bargain" – 5:33
  3. "Love Ain't for Keeping" – 2:12
  4. "My Wife" (Entwistle) – 3:41
  5. "The Song Is Over" – 6:16
  6. "Getting In Tune" – 4:50
  7. "Going Mobile" – 3:42
  8. "Behind Blue Eyes" – 3:42
  9. "Won't Get Fooled Again" – 8:32

Okai - Dekonstruktion of the Mind (2006)

Somewhat political album from Okai but several songs keep it from being too political. The album has wonderful production (all handled by Ayatollah) and the undertones of the album serve Okai well.

3. Bout that
4. Black poetry
5. No question ft. Vinia Mojica

Rappin' 4-Tay - Off Parole (1996)

This is easily one of my favorite west coast rap albums. Rappin' 4-Tay (he was that one dude who was on "Only God Can Judge Me") shows why he's the god damn man when it comes to making that pimp shit.

Death Cab for Cutie - Transatlanticism

Death Cab for Cutie is a Grammy nominated American indie rock band formed in 1997. Transatlanticism presents a polished version of the heartstring-tugging formula that has earned the Washington state quartet its cultish following: melodic, melancholy songs about feeling both smart and confused, hopelessly romantic but wary of love.

The eleven indie lullabies here -- ostensibly about a long-distance relationship -- are both tuneful and rough-edged, with singer Benjamin Gibbard's plaintive boy-next-door voice wafting delicately over crunchy guitars, piano and random percussion. The title track is an epic, fully formed tear-jerker, and more lighthearted fare such as "Expo '86" and the waltz-tempoed "Death of an Interior Decorator" get by on their childlike charm. Transatlanticism is an album about young men enduring lost love in an ocean of memory

The band has never sounded more cohesive, the track sequencing is brilliant, and it capped off a triumphant year for a band whose time and greater recognition is finally due.

1. The New Year
2. Lightness
3. Title and Registration
4. Expo '86
5. The Sound of Settling
6. Tiny Vessels
7. Transatlanticism
8. Passenger Seat
9. Death of an Interior Decorator
10. We Looked Like Giants
11. A Lack of Color



Hollow Tip - Flawless

Classic sacramento album. Hollow Tip's voice is monotone similar to Guru, in combination with his intriguing flow makes him a very entertaining and unique rapper.

Highside Records (1998)

3. Chasin' Dollars
4. Playah Clickin' (feat. Mic-C)

12. Lavish Habits (feat. San Quinn & Dame)
13. Close to Da End

Guns N' Roses - Appetite for Destruction (1987)

Note: Alternate cover art shown, cause it's gnarly. I mean you got a fuckin robot rapist.

Anyway, this is Guns N' Roses first album, aka the fastest selling debut album in history. During a period where hard rock was actually fuckin hard, the album covers it all, sex, drugs and rock and roll. Axl Rose has one of the greatest singing voices in the history of music. For every hard ass track they got the sweet ballads too. Every track on this album is amazing, ranging from great to classic. Y'all probably heard half the album already. My favorite is My Michelle, which is a true story about a girl they went to high school with.

1. "Welcome to the Jungle" 4:34
2. "It's So Easy" 3:23
3. "Nightrain" 4:29
4. "Out ta Get Me" 4:24
5. "Mr. Brownstone" 3:49
6. "Paradise City" 6:46
7. "My Michelle" 3:40
8. "Think About You" 3:52
9. "Sweet Child o' Mine" 5:55
10. "You're Crazy" 3:17
11. "Anything Goes" 3:26
12. "Rocket Queen" 6:13
