i'm too lazy to look up images right now and i need to think about this more, but...


1920'3 - 1930's: piano rolls by george gershwin, "collected works" - annette hanshaw.

1940's - 1950's: "what'd i say" (ray charles), "voice of frank sinatra," "elvis I" and "elvis II," various singles - billie holiday.

1960's: "pet sounds" - beach boys, "reckoning" - grateful dead, "are you experienced" - jimi hendrix, "let the sun shine in" - pebbles & bambam.

1970's: "there goes rhymin' simon" - paul simon, "ladies of the canyon" - joni mitchell, "ziggy stardust" - david bowie, "regatta de blanc" (or some other album) - the police.

1980's: "meat is murder" - the smiths, "get happy!" - elvis costello.

1990's: "automatic for the people" - REM, "wish" - the cure, "reading, writing and arithmetic" - the sundays, "flood" - they might be giants.

oughts: "18" - moby, "fantastic plastic machine" - tomoyuki tanaka, geogaddi - boards of canada, "OK computer" - radiohead.

20-teens: i'm not aware of any particularly influential music being made so far in this decade.

No NWA, no Marvin Gaye, no Muddy Waters, no James Brown, no Herbie Hancock, no 2Pac? I need to make a list.

No Thriller? Best selling album ever. No Illmatic? Changed the way rappers rap. Or is it only rock and its sub genres?

I'll go the very difficult way and take only one per decade.
Each one of these albums is seminal for the following decade(s) rather then for the one it was published.

'60s


'70s


'80s


'90s


'00s

Forgot about The Smiths. Fantastic band. This album introduced them to US college radio which was the only way to hear cool music back then. The Queen Is Dead ranks as one of my all time favorites.

Well that's kind of the idea.

I've always loved the Smashing Pumpkins but I've also always thought that their influence on following artists is definitely weak.

This will be considered a seminal album of the 2010's.

Imo they're both great albums, and neither of them was really groundbreaking, but Achtung Baby a little more so than Joshua Tree.

Joshua Tree came out in the mid 80s and although it was a turning point for the band, it doesn't really define that decade imo. It's a great album that musically combines traditional American music (mainly blues and gospel) with U2's signature sound.

Achtung Baby, which came out in '92 is U2's masterpiece imo. It's the album that found the right combo of musical influences and packaged them together with a figurative punch to the gut. Every song is not only good, it's superb. It made U2 relevant for another decade and the ensuing tour set a standard for arena and stadium shows for that decade.
