which albums are most stereotypical for their respective decades?
it doesn't have to be necessarily good, well-known, or defining, just stereotypical. You hear it and think "this is the most [decade] album I've ever heard"
for example I think this is the most stereotypically 60s album. Everything in it screams the 1960s.
as a bonus, what are the albums that are most like this for a decade that they weren't made in?
so what's pic related about
I'd like to hear a /mu/tant explain it
Here's a long, in depth, multi-part analysis if you're interested. It's really good
Bands with one good album

>show is 21+
Just a reminder that hating Death Grips is just another meme
So a friend recommended me this band called My Bloody Valentine and sent me Loveless.
And my first thought is, what is this noisey shit? Probably the worst fucking thing I've ever listened to.
Discuss the greatest album of all time (objectively).
Post rare Mangums.

>skips Moonchild / only listens to The Dream and then skips it
>listening to instrumental music

Bleach is objectively and unequivocally the best Nirvana album. You're welcome to think otherwise, but you are wrong. The truth of the matter is that this is by far the best thing Kurt ever did. A daring synthesis of sludge metal and garage rock with the melodic prowess of the Beatles on steroids. The whole album exudes a bleak atmosphere that makes you feel like you're literally living under a bridge injecting heroin while it's raining. This is true grunge, and it's beautiful.
Nevermind is where Kurt tries his hardest to make an album as accessible as possible. He does it well but it isn't something I find very interesting, and you shouldn't either. This isn't grunge, it's commercial grunge (or proto-post-grunge) and is literally one of the most predictable albums ever recorded (If a song starts quiet, it'll get loud and distorted during the chorus - unless it's acoustic, in which case, it doesn't change. It's all 4/4 and midtempo, most of the guitar solos follow the vocal melody to the T, the guitar never plays anything but basic notes and chords, and the tone is so crisp, clean, and lifeless, it might as well have been played by a session musician - basically, each and every dark, weird eccentricity that made Nirvana Nirvana has been completely obliterated). This album is the very epitome of a band "selling out".
In Utero is also commercial grunge only this time Kurt tries a bit more to hide the fact that he's pandering to plebs. Ultimately this is the worst Nirvana album. Here Kurt is trying to appease both the Nevermind audience and the Bleach audience, but he fails at both. This album does nothing new and it's the tamest "noise rock" you will ever hear.
>b-but Steve Albini produced it
yes let's just ignore the fact that the lead single was remixed into sounding nothing like the Albini version or that Steve Albini ultimately dismissed how the album ended up sounding (and rightfully so)
Everybody post a song and listen to the song below and listen to it, then review/rant about it

If Clarence Clarity had a better name and a less vaporwavey cover, how many AOTY lists would this top?
