  • 1973 - Very few years can match what this year gave us!

    Prog rock, hard rock, R&B/Soul, rock, glam rock, pop rock, punk rock......what a Top 10!

    http://www.besteveralbums.com/yearst...ir=desc&page=1

    Along with 1967 and 1971 this year rounds out what I believe to be years that likely will never be duplicated.

    My 1973 stats:
    Top 10 - 9
    Top 25 - 17
    Top 50 - 29
    Top 100 - 48

        Sometimes they'll mention up front how they arrived at the list, but more often than not they leave you guessing and many of them are purely opinion pieces. I don't give any of them much credence, but they can be fun to look at.

          '73 was freshman year in college and I don't know anyone who played the Iggy Pop album. Brain Salad Surgery, Goats Head Soup, Brothers and Sisters (!), There Goes Rhymin Simon, etc. In fact, no one played Skynyrd or Genesis either. Maybe it was a NY thing.

          Hell I played Bowie's Pinups to death. Perhaps though a bunch of covers, the most unappreciated Bowie album ever. What a collection of great songs!!!! 2-4-6-7-9-11-12 were spectacular with "See Emily Play, I Can't Explain and Where Have All The Good Times Gone" being my favorites.

            I was living in Montreal then and Prog was extremely popular there, as it still is. We were early adopters of Floyd, Genesis, King Crimson, ELP and the like, and there wasn't a Prog band that didn't play in the city. Skynyrd, ZZ Top, Steely Dan, etc. were popular, but not nearly to the same degree. Much like your experience in NY I think there are many other examples throughout the US & Canada.
