Consequence’s 100 Greatest Albums of All Time dropped earlier this week, so let’s talk about the rock albums that made the list.
I am fan of rock and/or roll music. Which is convenient, given the fact I’m a rock radio DJ. Some of my earliest musical memories are of rock songs I heard on the radio, or that my parents played from their vast record collection on our stereo at home. I collect songs and records myself, and I’m constantly scouring the internet for bands new and old to fall in love with. So Consequence has been a trusted companion of mine for years now, going back to when they were called Consequence of Sound.
This music blog that is so much more has turned me on to countless bands over the years. And they’ve given me reason to revisit and rediscover older musical gems as well, thanks to their compelling, passionate brand of music journalism. They’re celebrating 15 years, and their 100 Greatest Albums list is part of that celebration. And you know we love a good list here at ROCK 92.9, whether it’s ranking all 92 Led Zeppelin songs or dropping 50 of our favorite power ballads on you.
Consequence’s 100 Greatest Albums of All Time: Rating the Rock
To be clear, the scope of Consequence’s music and pop cultural coverage is wide, ranging from underground to mainstream and spanning countless genres. You’ll find that scope represented on their full list. But for the sake of this exercise–and because we’re Boston’s ROCK 92.9–I’m singling out just the rock albums that made the cut. You’ll see where they placed on the Consequence list, get a little bit of their analysis, and I’ll add my thoughts. Because the only thing that’s better than finding a brand new Top 100 list is finding reasons to argue about it!
