The Best Albums of the 60's

Eraserhead
 
The Velvet Underground & Nico
The Velvet Underground & Nico
"The most influential album of the decade, and one of the ten best of all time. Lou Reed & Co. created one of the most surrealistic and prophetic rock albums ever. Still years ahead of its time."
The Beatles (The White Album)
The Beatles (The White Album)
"The Beatles were falling apart, but still making fantastic music. Uneven, but therein lies the charm. While my Guitar.., Helter Skelter, Julia, Birthday, Revolution, are just a few of the hits."
White Light/White Heat
White Light/White Heat
"The follow up the legendary debut. Its louder, noiser, nastier, and just as important as their debut. Sister Ray & WL/Wh are 2 of their 4 best songs (Venus in Furs & Heroin are the others)."
Pet Sounds
Pet Sounds
"Brian Wilsons heartbreaking and unforgettable masterwork influenced everyone from the Beatles to Cameron Crowe. It is an album that has rarely been matched emotionally."
Electric Ladyland
Electric Ladyland
"The greatest guitar album of all time. Hendrix reached perfection with this album. One of the best double albums ever released. A landmark of sixties rock."
Stooges
Stooges
"The Stooges debut and the debut of the proto-punk movement that The Velvets had hinted at in earlier albums. It also brought Iggy Pop into the spot light...the world has never been the same."
Highway 61 Revisited
Highway 61 Revisited
"Highway 61 singlehandedly brokedown so many barriers that is impossible to understand its significance. Surreal lyrics, drunken vocals, & epic song structure are only a few of the areas it invented."
Rubber Soul (1990)
Rubber Soul (1990)
"The first serious Beatle record. An album that showed the world that the Beatles where more than just a "boy band". One of the few perfect albums ever made."
Led Zeppelin 1

"Led Zeppelin's debut album is ridiculously assured and confident. This album helped kick start the metal movement and helped destroy psychedelic rock."
Are You Experienced
Are You Experienced

Revolver
Revolver
"The Beatles 2nd best album (sorry Sgt) is song for song one the all time great albums. Their songwriting and musicianship didn't get much better than this. An earth shattering album."
Blonde on Blonde

Bringing It All Back Home

"Bob Dylans first foray into electric rock pays off brilliantly (even though he pissed off his fans). A record way ahead of its time and one that grows in stature and popularity every year."
Forever Changes

Music From Big Pink

"The Band's debut album is so sonically different than anything else being released at that time that is hard to believe it came from the same era (Sgt, Hendrix). A masterpeice that defied the odds."

"The Stones most popular album and one that marked the end of an age not only for the Stones (Brian Jones RIP), but for the 60's (Altamont)."
Tommy

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
"The Beatles hit their creative peak with the amazing and extremely influential Sgt. Peppers. At the time, this was the greatest accomplishment in studio technology (and still one of the best)."
Astral Weeks

"The most personnal and painful album (besides Plastic Ono Band) I have ever heard. Van Morrison never reached this peak again, but he left us a masterpeice of compassion and longing."
Kick Out the Jams
Kick Out the Jams
"One of the three best live albums ever (The Who's Live at Leeds is the best) and the MC5's best album. This was punk before punk existed. A legendary night captured forever."
