What I’m Listening To June ’24

Hello all, and welcome again to another edition of What I'm Listening To! This past month, Apple Music released their Top 100 Albums of all time. They say that they had music industry experts and artists vote and had a criteria to determine the list order. Well, needless to say, I had some major questions with this list. So, without further ado, here are five albums I have an issue with! 

Body Talk - Robyn

Coming in at 100, when I saw this, I just said "Who?". I literally had no idea who this person was. My coworkers even tried playing me music of hers, and I had zero clue. How did this get past Man on the Moon by Kid Cudi? Make it make sense!

Blue Lines - Massive Attack

At 87, and yet another band I have no idea who it is. I consider myself a well versed music lover, and my friend, try as he might, could not get me to recognize any of their hits. I'm sure there are those who will scold me for not knowing them. I don't care!

Trans Europe Express - Kraftwerk

If you say you knew who Kraftwerk is, I'd call you out, because I had never heard of these guys before in my life. Looking them up, I can understand why they were on the List. This band brought the beginnings of electronic music to life in the 70s/80s. However, at number 71 I find it too high. Look at the list yourself, and you'll see this band above such artists as Elton John and Madonna. Huh? Nuts!

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - Kanye West

Out of all the Kanye albums to put on, they go with his 4th or 5th best album? What "experts" did they talk to about this? Graduation, Late Registration, and College Dropout are all better than this. This album isn't bad, but come on.

When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? - Billie Eilish

Good record, but not a Top 30(!!!!!??) album of all time. What are we doing here folks?! Who voted for this to be so high?! This is unwarranted, sorry, but that's just the way it is. No way that NWA's Straight Outta Compton is worse than this. This was higher than Jagged Little Pill by Alanis Morissette. Like, what? They said this was better than Notorious BIG's Ready to Die album. GAAAAAAHH!!!!
