In the Charts tab on Rateyourmusic.com, you can listen to the top 100 albums in a row, and you'll get the top from all genres over the past two centuries'
I should mention that I'm into long and weird challenges, so I've thought about this idea for 5 seconds and... yes, I've listened to them all
The first list: 9 personal favourites,
living rent-free in my heart
I've loved many of these albums long before the experiment began (some I even have on vinyl), and having a reason to re-listen to them was a real gift. And yes, sadly here are only two Radiohead albums. My only advice about this list — you should hear (or re-hear) these albums right now. Seriously, I mean it
The second list: 9 least favourite albums,
that I never wish to listen to again
Firstly, for me as an auditory person, it's extremely challenging to listen to all of the 'hard' music, simply because artists often tend to scream and make some unpleasant and annoying sounds — and it instantly makes my anxiety alive. Second, it turns out I really hate the harmonica timbre (which is why I can't stand almost all of Bob Dylan's songs)
The third list: 9 most amazing findings in this top,
that were completely unexpected
Surprisingly, I've never listened to any of these records before (and now they are an inseparable part of my daily music routine). I have experienced the same perplexity with every album on this list — how could no one have told me about it?
In case you're wondering 'wow, it should be so exciting to listen to all of this music' but you don't have a 3,5 free days — I've picked one song from every album and made the overall playlist. It's 'almost 100' and not 'exactly 100' songs because both Spotify and Yandex Music don't have comprehensive worldwide music libraries.
But yes, it's still about 10 hours of great tracks! Enjoy
