I finished the first 10 albums today so it's time to recap how it went. Here we go:

50. “Here’s Little Richard” by Little Richard

  • I've heard Little Richard's songs for basically my entire life, but it's always been a song here and there. Listening to the entire album was interesting because it had a good 3 or 4 songs that all had the same basic beat as "Tutti Frutti." It was enjoyable because he is great, but still a bit repetitive.

49. “At Fillmore East” by the Allman Brothers Band

  • The Allman Brothers are really good live. I feel like they're more bluesy live, but I honestly haven't heard much more than their usual popular songs. Hopefully I'll get to listen to a studio album during this challenge so I can compare.

48. “It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back” by Public Enemy

  • Public Enemy is amazing, and so is this album. I almost feel like it should be higher than number 48.

47. “A Love Supreme” by John Coltrane

  • I knew I'd enjoy this one because I do love jazz. This was a great soundtrack for working, which is what I was doing when I listened to it. Energetic yet relaxing at the same time - it's hard to describe.

46. “Legend” by Bob Marley & the Wailers

  • I've heard this album many times because it got added to my collection back in high school thanks to a LiveJournal community for sharing albums, but it's always a great listen. I don't think there's a single song I would say I even remotely dislike.

45. “The Band” by The Band

  • I don't care for the Band, and I absolutely hate the song "The Weight," so I'm glad it wasn't on here. This album wasn't my style but it was tolerable. I doubt I'll ever listen to it again.

44. “Horses” by Patti Smith

  • I don't like Patti Smith, and I knew I'd hate this one. At one point I didn't even know what I was listening to because it got so bizarre. If you dig her vibe then you make like this, but I hope I don't encounter her again further down the list.

43. “The Dark Side of the Moon” by Pink Floyd

  • I've heard this album more times than I'd even like to admit, but it's one of the few Pink Floyd albums I enjoy listening to. I had wanted to watch The Wizard of Oz when I listened to the album because I've never done it, but the night I planned on it, we had a tornado and it was a bad time. Anyway, "Time" is the best song on here and their only track I'll never skip.

42. “The Doors” by The Doors

  • Another that I am well familiar with. I don't think it's their best album, but it is good. I hate listening to "Light My Fire" but at least "Twentieth Century Fox" comes first in the track order so I go into it in a decent mood.

41. “Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols” by the Sex Pistols

  • I don't even want to grace them with anything more than this: I would like to kick Johnny Rotten in the balls. That is all.

I've started the next 10 already, so I think that recap post will happen before the weekend ends:

40. "Forever Changes" by Love
39. "Please Please Me" by the Beatles
38. "The Anthology" by Muddy Waters
37. "Hotel California" by the Eagles
36. "Tapestry" by Carole King
35. "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars" by David Bowie
34. "Music from Big Pink" by the Band
33. "Ramones" by the Ramones
32. "Let It Bleed" by the Rolling Stones
31. "Bringing It All Back Home" by Bob Dylan

Some good and some really bad, but more to come later!
