Apple Released Their Top 100 Albums of All Time

Apple has officially released their list of the top 100 albums of all time. From their website, the list is “Assembled with the help of artists and experts, it’s a modern love letter to the records that have shaped the world we live and listen in today.” The list includes albums new and old, from the Beatles to Taylor Swift’s 2024 album “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” The genres range from rock, to pop, to hip hop and more. You can find the full list here, but let’s dive into the top 5.

5. Capturing hearts with deep introspection and dreamy soundscapes, it’s “Blonde” by the incredible Frank Ocean. This album is a journey of love, loss, and self-discovery.

4. Next up is the legendary “Purple Rain” by Prince. A groundbreaking album that seamlessly blends rock, pop, and funk, it’s an everlasting tribute to the genius of Prince.

3. In third place, we have the timeless classic “Abbey Road” by The Beatles. Featuring some of their most iconic tracks, this album is a cornerstone of music history. This album was released almost 30 years before I was born. To think it’s still timeless and iconic to this day is something that’s a sight to be seen.

2. Holding the runner-up spot is Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” This album didn’t just break records; it redefined them, bringing unmatched energy and unforgettable hits. When I think the success of MJ, this is the album I think of.

1. And finally, the greatest album of all time according to Apple – “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” by Lauryn Hill. This album transcends genres and generations with its powerful messages and soulful tunes. The biggest song I remember is Doo Wop (That Thing) which played on radio a lot.

I truly am indifferent to the top 5, mostly because I have not listened to these albums front to back in its entirety. Some honourable mentions that I personally am a big fan of are #7: Good Kid, m.A.A.d City by Kendrick Lamar, #9: Nevermind by Nirvana, and #23: Discovery by Daft Punk. I’m sad Nickelback didn’t make it.
