List item: Listen to the 250 greatest albums
So we finally arrive at the first of four albums from the year I was born. When you look at the list chronologically it is around this time that rap starts to make an appearance. There is a bit of a concentration of rap and hip hop here with the likes of Public Enemy, Run D.M.C. and The Beastie Boys all making appearances.
From then on rap and hip hop appear sporadically with a greater concentration starting in more recent years once again. Weird, since I can not remember a time that this has not been high in the charts. It’s just one of those things I guess. After all, pop is everywhere and it’s grossly under-represented on this list.
I’m not going to spend much on this album, it failed to maintain my attention throughout and found myself thinking about all the music I could set up in my iTunes after it was finished (a mixture of St. Vincent, Liberty X, Sufjan Stevens, Natalie Prass and Carly Rae Jepsen). It takes a lot for this genre to keep me interested. It’s not like I don’t have rap and hip hop that I don’t listen to (Broke With Expensive Taste by Azaelia Banks being one I had on during work yesterday), but it’s not really my favourite.
