It’s nearly impossible to keep an artist’s momentum going forever. For as much greatness as some of the classic bands might have, no one can keep that artistic fire burning until the end of time. On the other hand, when these bands were firing on all cylinders, they left us with more classics than we can count.
While many bands can try to make a career off of the strength of one album, these bands have had periods where every single release was an absolute masterpiece. Some of the records may have become more iconic than others over time, but that doesn’t diminish the quality of these songs in the slightest. If anything, it’s a testament to the musicianship of these artists that even when they end up putting something more lackluster out, it’s still some of the greatest music in their field.
From prog to metal to down and dirty rock and roll, each of these bands have had numerous classics under their belt and have built up a firm legacy to their name. Though it’s almost anyone’s guess as to which albums are the best, you pretty much can’t go wrong listening to any of these. Fasten your seatbelts...this is where it starts to get good.
I'm just a junkie for all things media. Whether it's music, movies, TV, or just other reviews, I absolutely adore this stuff. But music was my first love, and I love having the opportunity to share it with you good people.
