This Geek’s Opinion: The five best albums ever made

Yesterday, I mentioned to someone that The Beatles’ Abbey Road was, in my opinion, a member of the top five albums of all-time club. Then, came the tough question: “What albums make up your top five?”

I thought I would be able to rattle them off right away, but it turned out to be harder than I thought. There are so many artists that I love. So many songs speak to me and about me. I love so many albums that I could probably, if given enough time (and some sort of iTunes gift card compensation), put together a list of at least 100.

In the end, I focused on one thing….full albums. Yes, I’m talking about those perfectly orchestrated albums that, if you only listen to a few songs, instead of the entire album straight-through, you feel like you cheated. These are the ones that grab me by the arm, hold my eyelids open an yell, “Do you see?! This is why life rocks! Whoo! Freebird!”

So, almost 24-hours later, I present my top five albums of all-time:

5. The Avett Brothers – Live, Volume 3
4. Bruce Springsteen – Born to Run
3. Led Zeppelin – Led Zeppelin II
2. The Beatles – Abbey Road
1. Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon

(Disclaimer: These are my top five albums. This post in no way, shape or form constitutes an attempt to convince you that they’re awesome or make them your favorites. Seriously, if you don’t know good music, it’s your own fault. Wait. I’m just kidding…probably.)

Every day is different. You just need to open your eyes and see it…

365 days later we say, “Thanks again, Steve.”

Whether you’re an Apple fan or not, 365 days after he left the world, Job’s vision continues to touch millions of lives. We should all strive to have such a positive impact on the world.
