Music: 10 Great Albums Worth a Listen


Roseville, CA- Music tastes are as subjective as it gets, but few things are as fun as music opinions. Unlike politics, sharing and debating music is a fun endeavor and persuasion is never out of the question.

With music in mind, we decided to put together a list of albums that have kept our attention for countless hours and in some cases, decades. These albums may or may not have made it across your aural nerves, so we'll share a sampling of our favorites for those looking for a new listen.

Covering a few different genres from pop, blues, jazz to harder edge music, we hope you find something you enjoy.

Head over to your favorite Internet radio and give these a try! Enjoy.

10 Great Albums Worth a Listen

(in mostly no particular order)

10- The Chess Box Set - Willie Dixon
Blues at its finest. What better place to start than with an album where you realize where many rock n'roll classics were hijacked from.

9-  Little Broken Hearts - Norah Jones
Easily our favorite album from Norah Jones. Catchy tunes full of light and dark moments.

8-  Volcano - Edie Brickell
Forget what you know about Edie Brickell. Quality albums and incredible musicians have been her trademark since the 1980's. This album crushes it.

7-  Everything All the Time - Band of Horses
A friend played a great song off this album for me, followed by another, and get the picture.

6-  Fandango Nights - Willie & Lobo
Outside on a warm summer's night, a neighbor threw this on the turntable and I became an instant fan of this flamenco style duo.

5-  Ozzmosis - Ozzy Osbourne
Great production, musicians and songs. Heavy with pop sensibilities throughout. Ozzy's finest album to my ears.

4- The Final Cut - Pink Floyd
The incredible and underrated succcesor to The Wall and finale for Roger Waters at the helm.
Amazing album.

3- Fate of Nations - Robert Plant
Rock / Pop tunes and a family favorite that accompanies us on long road trips.

2- Cosmo's Factory - Creedence Clearwater Revival
Not a dull moment on this 1970 gem. Songs holds up amazingly well.  

1- Achtung Baby - U2
Wow! A cover to cover masterpiece and new direction that the band took as the 90's commenced.
Many old school U2 fans shrugged it off. Perhaps the greatest album of the past 30 years.
