Time Magazine posted a while ago a list with the 100 best rock- and pop-albums of all time.
Fine. But the list consisted of only albums in the english language, consequently excluding a whole world of contemporary music.
It’s like posting a list of classical music and excluding german, russian and austrian composers, and thereby not having Beethoven, Mozart, Stravinsky, Bach, etc. on a list of the all-time best composers! You would not take such a list seriously.
The Time Magazine list included only albums with american and english artists (with the exception of a couple of canadians and Bob Marley…) – and so it’s a list with only commercial value. There’s so many good albums from the rest of the world who easily could be considered better albums – and this list includes some of these.
This list is my subjective list of mostly non-english speaking artists – with fantastic music that I hope you’ll explore. I’ll try to enter two albums a week, so the list should be finished in a year…
I’m looking forward to get recommendations of artists that I’ve missed – my goal is simply to share my knowledge and expand it at the same time.
