Synopsis:

Get ready for the albums that will change your life.

1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die welcomes you to the essential guide to the most mouth-watering musical sounds, from Miles Davis' jazz landmark Kind of Blue in 1959 to the White Stripes' triumphant Elephant in 2003.

Freshly revised and updated - and now in its seventh year - this fascinating book is the ultimate critical guide to history's greatest albums, spanning more than 50 years of outstanding music across all genres, from the genesis of 1950s rock 'n' roll to the technological and electronic innovations of the 2000s.

With inside knowledge and incisive criticism from 90 internationally acclaimed music journalists, this book provides an indispensable companion to the music itself.

Discover acknowledged milestones, old favourites and many unexpected treats. Detailed descriptions of each album are accompanied by fascinating insights and trivia, such as:

  • What album did Time magazine consider the greatest of the 20th Century?
  • Which anthemic Prince song was his attempt to write a Bob Seger-style country track?
  • What links Count Basie to Batman?
Relive Bob Dylan's darkly visionary Highway 61 Revisited, recorded in 1965 in an America at war with itself as well as Vietnam. Skip forward to Johnny Cash's remarkable renaissance in the 1990s and Ali Farka Toure's Final masterpiece.

Whatever the size of your record collection, if you love music, you will love 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.
