What are some objective masterpieces of their genre?

I'm not asking for your 10/10's, or your personal favorites; I'm asking for albums that, regardless of your appreciation of them, are undeniably the most well executed of their particular genre.

If you'd like, you can attach the genre you think it applies to on your post.

For instance: Ambient.

where the fuck do you think you are? this board is loaded with underage users who know next to nothing about music in the long run and just resort to liking whatever based on fads.

don't ask serious questions on this board. there's no use.

Psych rock

>>53391248
That's a bit much, I think. Albums like Black Foliage or Piper at the Gates are much better choices.
>>
>>53391222
>>53391243
wait hang on, this thread is about objective and undeniable truth. theres no scope for discussion, you just apply your objective and undeniable criteria and post the best album only. so which is it?
>>
>>53391271
Well, some people don't think out their choices a lot.
That being said, I actually partially agreed with him on his choice.
I'll refer you here: >>53391230

>>53391268
black foliage is too poppy to be called psychedelic rock
>>
>>53391296
IDK, the core principles of the album are pretty much Psych-Rock. Certainly it isn't an ordinary Psych album but the idea of the semi-hallucinogenic interludes and sound collages is arguably very much a Psychedelic ideal.
>>
>>53391291
I think it would help, for the sake of clarity, if you laid out the objective and undeniable set of criteria used to determine the best albums. Then we could use them in other threads too, and send the list to all the music reviewers so they can stop disagreeing.
>>
>>53391317
I'll refer you here: >>53391230

>>53391325
No come on, how can we hope to agree if the criteria for selection arent made clear at the outset. Besides, think how many arguments it would solve beyond this thread.

You've failed. Madvillainy is unquestionably timeless. If you have an argument to dispute that, feel free to let a river of shit flow from your mouth.

Not really, since it sounds like shit. Even Death Grips are objectively sonically miles ahead of that, and that's what matters most in music

Live 77 from LRD is better imo even though Haino is god

>>53392585
these are some good fucking picks man. But I'd put Repetition, as LTIY is much more post rock than post hardcore.

Also, it's really tough to pick the best in post rock as its so fuckin diverse. ECIM, Hex, Laughing Stock, something by stereolab or sigur ros?

Remember the thread is masterpieces, not necessarily the sole best of the genre. I think we can agree these are all fantastic. Which one is the best is definitely open for debate though. As for modern day, D'Angelo is unfortunately untouched.

I used to think that too until I started learning about production and mixing and what it means to make a good recording. Rated R is better.
