I think it's part of a range of "1001 books", of various things to see / hear before you die (eg. Movies, Books etc)!
Here is another list compiled by a music journalist, and followed from the same Wikipedia link (but these are for sale): http://www.1000recordings.com/the-list/
Ben Howard album is decent.. I love 'Against me - As the Eternal Cowboy' but its folk/punk rock.. The acoustic tracks are raw and full of emotion.. Check it out if you can be bothered
Electrocompaniet PI 2 | Naim ND5 XS | Chord Epic | ProAc Studio 115
Always good to get suggestions.
I have to say, that is one of the best lists of this type I have seen in a long time. I usually get really irate about this sort of thing and start yelling "why is Rainbow's Rainbow Rising" not in the list?????" or something, but there seem to be lots of good albums on the list. Having it chronological was a good idea - I hate the normal ranking system. Only 1 album worth getting between Led Zep 1 and 2?!!

Denon TU-1800 DAB/FM Whirlwind amplifiers Tellurium Q Black
the Ben Howard slbum is worth a purchase for sure! You tube Against Me - 'Sink Florida Sink' and '"Unsubstantiated Rumors Are Good Enough for Me to Base My Life Upon' on YouTube.. The latter I always test new gear with.. DIY but such a great recording
So was it on the list? If not, start yelling!
It is interesting to see the stuff that drops out / comes in.
I read a definition once that said we shouldn't call "classical" music that but "permanent" music, ie music that has stood the test of time. Of the albums of the 1960s, which is when I was a teenager, the ones that have stood the test of time are those of the Beatles and of Dylan.
Thank you Cno, that's a nice long list. Bit unorthodox, but I take what I can get these days!
Sometimes you forget about the music with all the obsessing over gear, seriously considering a break from hifi to concentrate on the music a bit more.
I was thinking about this the other day actually. In me youth, I had a couple of friends who introduced me to music I wouldn't have touched with a barge pole otherwise, and I still play those albums. I find that while great, spotify and YouTube cannot replace people who are enthusiastic about certain albums or artists.
it wasn't but then again there was lots of interesting stuff so I'm Ok with that. Lots of deep purple
