Most of what's on the charts is on there for a damn good reason. For as much as some of the material may seem annoying, many of the songs that are at the top of streaming services always have the tendency to get stuck in your head. However, other albums aren't meant to be catchy...nor even pleasant. Throughout the tenure of rock music, there have been many albums that have challenged the listener throughout their runtime. Whether it be a newer band with an abrasive sound or a seasoned band going through a weird point in their career, these albums have definitely made a handful of jaws drop in their time.
Granted, some of these are much harder to handle than others. While some of these just get by on the shock factor alone, the rest of these albums stand out because they put your mind through a woodchipper by the end of their runtime. They can be unpleasant, innovative, or just plain strange, but these albums have made many fans come back for more over the years. Even if they never really set the world on fire, all of the music presented here has at the very least intrigued the public over the years.
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.
