The Best: Album

Welcome to “The Best,” a new series from the people who brought you “Would You Do,” “Blogger Interviews” and “What Really Grinds My Gears.”

It’s just what it sounds like: what’s the best ______? “Best” is such a subjective word and that’s really the point — let’s get you guys talking! If this works, there will be intelligent, thoughtful debate on the day’s topic. And if it doesn’t work, well, back to the drawing board.

Some great music over the years. And we don’t listen to that many types — Country, R&B and Pop have never really caught our ear. But there are some very successful artists from those genres. And then there’s the stuff we do listen to.

Some of the top albums ever recorded that come to mind:

-Dr. Dre: The Chronic
-Pearl Jam: Ten
-Snoop Dogg: Doggystyle
-Nirvana: Nevermind
-The Beatles: Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

Wow! Some great music. The best album ever made? Yours please in the comments.

    Not sure if it was on an actual album, but Disco Duck by Rick Dees is probably the worst song ever.
