50 Albums you must hear before you buy a house 2.0 (6): 25-21

The end of 2013 is approaching quickly now, and so is the top of our all-time album lists. Kicking off the top half this week with a lot of notorious albums:

DOK:

21. Radiohead – Kid A (2000)
22. The Beatles – Rubber Soul (1965)
23. Cream – Disraeli Gears (1967)
24. Neil Young – After The Gold Rush (1970)
25. George Harrison – All Things Must Pass (1970)

GvZ:

21. (24)  Santana – Abraxas (1970)
22. (16)  Electric Light Orchestra – Out of the Blue (1977)
23. (28)  Bob Dylan – Blonde on Blonde (1966)
24. (*)    Neil Young – Harvest (1972)
25. (27)  The Beatles – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967)

RKH:

21. (*)    Jefferson Airplane – Surrealistic Pillow (1967)
22. (30)  Radiohead – OK Computer (1997)
23. (11)  Bob Dylan – Desire (1976)
24. (35)  Guided By Voices – Bee Thousand (1994)
25. (21)  The Beatles – Rubber Soul (1965)

The smaller the numbers, the bigger the names, as is clearly the case here. Four artists stand out this time: The Beatles, Radiohead, Bob Dylan and Neil Young. Rubber Soul is RKH’s first Beatles album in the list on #25, while it’s DOK’s second on #22 after Sgt. Pepper.  That one is GvZ’s second Fab Four album, preceded by Young and Dylan’s second. Other albums from them are found on the exact same spots in DOK’s and RKH’s lists respectively. Last but not least, Radiohead features both those lists with Kid A as well as OK Computer. The smaller the numbers, the less the variety.
