la musica rock?

troppo complesso e sfuggente dare una definizione... ma su centinaia di libri e altrettante pagine web il termine è stato chiarito, confuso e manipolato quando necessario... non mi sembra importante approfondire...

i migliori album della musica rock?
no, no, solo i miei preferiti...

naturalmente, esistono criteri per valutare quanto una data composizione (nel nostro caso l'album) ha rivoluzionato e sconvolto criteri compositivi esistenti e influenzato quelli futuri (motivi congiunturali, "stato di grazia" dell'artista) ma, esiste veramente un criterio per valutare i migliori album della musica rock? forse... i critici infatti, valutando alcuni parametri compilano liste e classifiche considerando alcuni album "fondamentali" o "classici"… tempo a dietro la "famosa" rivista Rolling Stone ha proposto i "500 Greatest Albums"...
ad ogni modo, sino a quando esisterà la libertà di ascoltare, ognuno ascolterà quello che gli pare e compilerà la sua classifica... ed è giusto! altrettanto giusto però, è dare alla musica la libertà di essere ascoltata... ma su questo punto il discorso diventa lungo e sarà chiuso qui...
la classifica che segue si basa sul numero di ascolti che le mie orecchie hanno subito da ogni album, dal vigore e dalla beatitudine che mi ha regalato... naturalmente la lista è in evoluzione e cambierà seguendo gli impulsi della mia vita...lo so che mancano molti album importanti... però così vanno le cose ;) ...
gli album visibili sulla vostra destra sono gli ultimi ad essere ospitati...
