      bio sam jutros u biblioteci da učim. osam minuta listao "kliničku ehokardiografiju", pronašao na polici ovu divotu i čitao sledeća četiri sata.

    • Aaaahhh I sit, listening to Einstürzende Neubauten's great album, "Kollaps" which is semi-rhythmic collection of German yelling, banging on garbage cans and recorded sounds from every day objects such as water burbling, feet shuffling and what almost sounds like a broken AM radio.Such is the story of my life.My good friends Mike and Karen generously bought me this book several months ago, which was very much appreciated (of course). As close we are, they did not know that they were dooming to a [...]

    • Just a short note: I thought this was a solid book of important album, with only two flaws - including a Limp Bizkit album (should have chosen Deftones' "White Pony" or something, even Linkin Park would do), and I don't think Britney Spears fits in (but this one is just my opinion) anyway at least the former should've been taken off. Otherwise great book with reasonably good taste.

    • I love lists. On the other hand, any fucker with an opinion can put together a list, so let me modify that to say I like lists but I love lists that include justification for each entry, or have some over-arching criteria by which they are constructed. If this book were merely a bare list, it wouldn't be particularly elevated above the thousands of other lists (on discogs for example), but it is more than that. A list like this will never satisfy everyone, and in fact its almost guaranteed to sa [...]

    • Sinds 2014 lag dit boek op het toilet. Bij elk bezoek las ik een paar albums. Geen literair hoogstandje wel leuk om door 70 jaar pop rock disco jazz triphop indie muziek heen te gaan. Nu nog alles luisteren .

    • There is much for music lovers to be happy about once they get a hold of 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. Arranged by decade (1950s to present day), the hefty book is full of compulsively readable reviews written by various music critics, all more than willing to back up exactly why they consider these selections essential to your musical life.Kicking off with Frank Sinatra’s heartbreaking In The Wee Small Hours, 1001 Albums tells us that Sinatra was almost a has-been when he recorded [...]

    • I thought the "1001 Movies You Must Watch Before You Die" was a surprisingly varied and informative book. For every "Titanic" was a "Satantango". It was for this reason that I picked up "1001 Albums". I was disappointed to see how unadventurous it was. For the most part we're presented with a stale list of standards that do very little to expand musical horizons. When the most "out there" release included is by Einsturzende Neubauten, we have a problem. What I hoped this book would provide was i [...]

    • An Xmas gift at my request. thanks RJ! The title is somewhat extreme . Lord, I don't feel the obligation to listen to them all or to follow any kind of order. That would be too much like work!a link to youtube videos of a great many of the songs. youtube/playlist?lista complete listblacksunshinemedia/music/1List cut and pasted from user B0nnie Sinatra, Frank – In the Wee Small HoursPresley, Elvis – Elvis Presley (1956)Louvin Brothers – Tragic Songs of LifePrima, Louis – WildestDomino, F [...]

    • Inevitably, a compendium like '1001' will mean different things to different folk, merely because of combinatorial maths, let alone age, parents', children's and friends' influences, when and if you had your own family, surrounded by boys or girls, which country you lived in, and so on; not to mention eclecticism, audiophilia or simple 'good taste'; or whether you read the NME or Melody Maker, both, none or others. It will have glaring omissions, harrumphed inclusions, substitutions begging, hun [...]

    • For those who have spent the large part of their teen/adult years searching out the most obscure and underground music to whet their musical palates, this volume offers great suggestions to get acquainted with the "classics." 1001 Albums gave me some great listening recommendations in the areas of jazz and rock, making me step outside my comfort zone and acknowledge that some mainstream releases are certainly worth a listen. Who would've imagined that I'd ever buy (and like) a Byrds cd?!!

    • I haven't finished this yet, I still have about 120 albums left, but this was the most unique musical experience I've ever had. 3 years ago I listened to every album in this book I owned in order (maybe 70 albums) and it took me a month, and I had a lot of fun. Then later I decided to take the plunge and listen to the entire book in chronological order and review each album as I listened to it. I've gained incredible insight into the evolution of music from this, and have found many new bands, a [...]

    • had this one as a wee lad and it definitely turned me on to some Cool Shit like einsturzende neubauten, liars, neu, dr. octagon, etc. however the book really runs out of steam towards the end of the 90s / early 00s when they just start recommending trash like kid rock (this is objective okay, no one fucking likes kid rock) and the vines. most of the 'classics' are pretty predictable choices or super well known. definitely neat as a primer to the wonderful world of music but idk, i could happily [...]


    • SVENSKA UTGÅVAN: I princip exakt likadan som originalutgåvan på engelska, förutom att texterna till resp album av de engelska skribenterna är översatta. Det är endast 30 st svenska album med i boken (inkl 4 från ABBA), som inte finns i den engelska originalutgåvan, vilket var lite av en besvikelse.ENGELSKA UTGÅVAN: En mycket värdefull samling av album, och intressant musikhistoria.

    • Alla som läser den här boken kommer garanterat att tycka att vissa artister / musikstilar / tidsepoker är över- eller under-representerade. Kort sagt, den listan som presenteras här är helt fel. Men det hindrar ju inte att det är underhållande läsning.

    • Completely basic. You will find Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears in this book but not one word about electronic legends such as Squarepusher or Venetian Snares. No thanks.

    • Although I enjoyed most of these 1001 albums, I have to say that it's a very subjective selection, even not considering the fact that most of the albums are of the english language.

      Настольное издание для любого любителя современной популярной музыки

    • Neljä tähteä inspiroimisesta ja uusien-vanhojen artistien esittelemisestä. Kirjana tai tiedonlähteenähän teos ei ole kummoinen, vaan lähinnä luettelo hyvistä pitkäsoitoista. Albumien kuvaustekstit on koottu useilta eri toimittajilta ja siitä syystä vaihtelevat mielenkiintoisista tyhjänpäiväisiin. Kymmeniä lättyjä tuli kuitenkin hankittua kirjan myötä ja lisää tulee kerättyä seuraavien levytilausten yhteydessä. Ei huonosti yhdeltä kirjalta.

      An overall enjoyable read from an interesting series. Any such work is going to be driven by the biases and preferences of the authors and editors. My taste and theirs do not necessarily match up. That they are fans of Bowie cannot be missed - nine of the 1001 albums, or basically 1%, are Bowie records. A bit much. But then maybe seeing as three of the albums I must hear are by Dexy's Midnight Runners. Uh, no.Nits can be picked - I would take 'Tumbleweed Connection' over 'Madman Across the Water [...]

    • How I'm going to this is rate the albums as I listen to them and I may write a blog highlighting my favourite songs on the albums. In The Wee Small Hours - Frank Sinatra 5/5Self-Titled - Elvis Presley 5/5Tragic Songs of Life - The Louvin Brothers 0.5/5----------------------------------------I can't really list what I think of every album but it's an interesting list that's for sure.

    • Part of a growing stable of “1001 blanks you must blank before you die” titles published by Universe, 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die lists a variety of records from a variety of popular music genres from 1955 to 2008 (though heavily weighted towards the later periods of this range), organized by large group of music critics and editors to be particularly representative of the development and evolution of modern music. Borrowed to me by a friend after I expressed my desire to learn [...]

    • There is nothing a music geek likes more than a good list, and this book may be the mother of all music lists. Just like it says on the tin, the editors and several authors list 1001 of their favorite albums from 1955 - 2005. Instead of ranking them from 1 - 1001, they present the albums by year of release, moving from crooners, jazz and the first stirrings of rock and roll in the mid 1950's then focusing almost exclusively on rock and pop music through to the mid-2000's. It is a fascinating boo [...]

    • Ordered chronologically, this book contains albums that are considered to be great by a series of critics. Starting with Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley, the book continues on through the rest of the 1950s and on into the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and early 2000s. Since it has a huge amount of material to cover, I imagine the list had to be pared down quite a bit.All the entries have the name of the artist, the name of the particular album in question, and some basic stats about the album; the [...]

    • A good book to list all the influential, remarkable western popular albums. I put many albums to my wishlist, although many I knew before too but I tried to listen to all artists/bands so it was quite a long project. Visually this is very clear and neat looking and it categorizes albums by decades, starting from the 50's (I would have liked if there would have been music from the 30's too). There are many reviewers so the quality and style varies a bit but not dramatically. Usually there are fou [...]

    • I love compendia such as this, which condense a vast and varied field into bite-sized bits, like a well-seasoned stew or packaged breakfast cereal. The authors show a somewhat British bias, and an artist bias, resulting in numerous Where are they and Why is this in here and Who the hell are they talking about among the recognisable wheat. Whether or not I will ever hear most of these albums is not the issue (how long would it take anyway--a million years?--who has that kinda time, except maybe S [...]

    • This book is a gluttonous attempt at something that is proven again and again to do nothing but piss people off because of the exclusion of albums that should rightfully be included, but just didn't make the cut due to the contributors' taste in music. That being said, there are a lot of albums included that I was pleasantly surprised to see (Dennis Wilson's Pacific Ocean Blue being a great example.) Also, the format becomes glaringly insufficient when I'm reading in 2011, and hit 2005 as an end [...]

    • I am currently reading this massive volume, and for the most part, I enjoy it when I read it. I've tried to read it from cover to cover, and so far am up to 1987. While I was reading it, I noticed some very interesting albums I might be interested in listening to, so I bought some sticky tabs to mark those pages. I've probably marked hundreds of albums at this point. It definitely opens you up to some eclectic albums, ones you probably wouldn't consider just seeing it on the CD shelf.I enjoy tha [...]

    • Less a giant tome of musical treasures than an exercise in tedium, 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die was something I wanted to love but couldn't. I wanted to discover a lot of music that I may have missed, but it focuses mostly on what's widely discussed as classics anyway so I already knew about most of what was included here. Of what I hadn't heard, hardly any piqued my interest enough to get me to check them out, in fact the only group this book turned me on to was Wire.I don't really [...]
