The rebirth of hip-hop's originating borough the Bronx can be credited in part to this two-man crew. The spirit of rap's forefathers can be felt in the gritty weight of this duo's pioneering sound. Learning from their cohort Lord Finessethe two started an underground buzz by street promoting their demos then selling the tapes out of the trunks of their cars.
Their debut album, Runaway Slave, followed in the fall and is seen as an early-'90s hip-hop essential. The album brought a bouncing hardcore sound of crisp, jazzy horns, stiff drum kicks, and snapping snares that could get a party hopping but could also satisfy the non-dancing purist nodding his head in the back of the club.
The album truly is a D. The sequel to their raw, stripped sound came in with the under-appreciated Goodfellas and the two were major contributors to D. Listen again to the delirious cacophany of 'Running Up That Hill', and it sounds like God struck that deal, Album).
Tori Amos would have spawned no earthquakes, Alison Goldfrapp would lack her juiciest cherries and romance would have withered on the vine. Jamaica's invention of dub - a stripped-down, echo-laden instrumental remix of a vocal track - was spawned principally on the B-sides of local reggae hits and in the island's competing sound-systems, with technician-engineer King Tubby as its master creator, a man who could 'play' the mixing console.
This collection of ethereal melodies by melodica maestro Augustus Pablo distilled the art into album form. It would be years before the West caught up.
The charismatic N'Dour, Senegal's top star, changed the West's perception of African musicians, just as he had revolutionised Senegalese music. Nothing sounded like the fusion on Immigres, with its lopsided rhythms, whooping talking drums and discordant horns, topped by N'Dour's supple, powerful vocals.
Immigres also redefined the role of West African griot, addressing migration and African identity. In fact, 'world music' would not exist as a section in Western collections. This remains the live album by which all others are measured, and is still the best delineation of the raw power of primal soul music. The catalyst for many great soul stylists, from Sly Stone to Otis Redding, it also provided an early lesson in dynamics for the young Michael Jackson.
The tracker encompassed a vast range of life's issues - emotional, social, spiritual and environmental - all performed with bravado and a lightness of touch. Looking and playing like a brother from another planet, Hendrix delivered the most dramatic debut in pop history.
Marrying blues and psychedelia, dexterity and feedback trickery, it redefined the guitar's sonic possibilities, Album), while beyond the fretboard pyrotechnics burnt a fierce artistic vision - 'Third Stone From the Sun' made Jimi rock's first and still best travelled cosmonaut.
Prince had been plugging away with limited success for several years when the man in tiny pants reinvented himself as a purple-clad movie star. Like Michael Jackson, he felt that the way to gain crossover appeal was to run the musical gamut: in this case, from the minimalist funk of his earlier albums to the volume-at rock of Jimi Hendrix.
The title track is a monumental, fist-clenching rock ballad that, perversely, whetted our appetites for far worse examples by Christina Aguilera among others. Sounds like it was pretty tough to be in Pink Floyd in the early s. You had all the money you could spend ker-ching! You didn't get on with your bandmates because they all had superiority complexes.
You couldn't enter the recording booth without having an existential crisis. Alongside The Harder They Come movie and soundtrackCatch a Fire changed the perception of reggae from eccentric, lightweight pop to a music of mystery and power.
Dressed in a snappy Zippo lighter sleeve, and launched with rock razzmatazz, it delivered a polished, guitar-sweetened version of what Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Album) Wailer had made when white audiences weren't listening.
By turns militant, mystic and sexy, it helped make Bob Marley the first Third World superstar. Until the late Eighties, Manchester was thought to be a forbidding, dour place where the ghost of Ian Curtis still clanked about. The Stone Roses' concatenation of sweet West Coast psychedelia and the lairy, loved-up rave culture was as unforeseeable as it was seismic. Ecstasy pulled the sniffy rock kids away from their Smiths records and into clubland; the result was an album whose woozy words and funky drumming sounded as guileless as it did hedonistic.
Until Stax Records and Otis Redding arrived, the Southern states were a place you had to leave to make it unless you were a country singer. Recorded weeks after the death of Redding's idol, Sam Cooke, the album cast Otis as Cooke's successor, an embodiment of young black America with white appeal - alongside Cooke's 'A Change is Gonna Come' was the Stones's 'Satisfaction'.
With terrific backings from the MGs and the Markeys horns behind Otis's rasping vocals, it defined 'soul'. Equally important was the use of electronic keyboards, then in their infancy, which vastly expanded the range of available textures. Head Hunters kickstarted the stylistic and ethnic fusions that have enlivened jazz for 30 years. A mere 30 minutes long, this was none the less the album where heavy metal was first forged. Its ponderous tempos, cod-satanic imagery bassist Geezer Butler was a Roman Catholic and Dennis Wheatley fanTony Iommi's sledgehammer guitar riffs and Ozzy Osbourne's shrieking vocals all went on to define the genre and shaped most arena rock of the Seventies and Eighties.
To restore it took he and his three 'brothers' just one Spit Remix - Show & AG* - Full Scale (CD and 16 tracks, all under three minutes. Brevity was the New York punk rockers' first lesson to the world, along with speed, a distorted guitar thrash and a knowing line in faux-dumb lyrics. In an era of 'progressive' rock pomposity and minute tracks, the Ramones' back-to-basics approach was rousing and confrontational. Long before they recorded the first rock opera, Tommy, they unleashed a stream of singles that articulated all the youthful pent-up frustration of Sixties London before it started to swing.
Obliterators of rap's boundaries, Massive Attack pioneered the cinematic trip hop movement. Massive Attack's debut LP spawned the unforgettable 'Unfinished Sympathy' and remains a modern classic. In fact, there would be no British urban music scene to speak of. In parallel with Jeff Buckley, Radiohead's Thom Yorke popularised the angst-laden falsetto, a thoughtful opposite to the chest-beating lad-rock personified by Oasis's Liam Gallagher.
Sounding girly to a backdrop of churning guitars became a much-copied idea, however, one which eventually coalesced into an entire decade of sound. Coldplay would not exist, nor Keane, nor James Blunt. Pure, startling genius from beginning to end, Michael Jackson and producer Quincy Album) seemed hellbent on creating the biggest, most universally appealing pop album ever made. Jones introduced elements of rock into soul and vice versa in such a way that it's now no surprise to hear a pop record that mashes up more marginal genres into a form that will have universal relevance.
Their self-titled debut - the first rap album to go gold - was rough around the edges and catchy as hell. The Chic Organisation revolutionised disco music in the late Seventies, reclaiming it from the naff Bee Gees and ensuring the pre-eminence of slickly produced party music in the charts for the next three decades. They also created a hit-making formula that mixed dance beats with monster hooks. Yearning, melodic, jangly, and very northern, The Smiths' first album was quite unlike anything that had gone before.
It helped that Morrissey was a one-off and that Johnny Marr had taken all the best riffs from Sixties pop, punk and disco and melded them into his own unique style. But there was something magical about their sound that endless successors have tried to replicate.
Thanks to producer Andrew Weatherall and some debauched raving, this former fey indie outfit enthusiastically took on dance music's heady rushes. It was a conversion bordering on the Damascene, but one being mirrored in halls of residence, cars, clubs and bedsits all around the nation.
Screamadelica brought hedonism crashing into the mainstream. There's something refreshingly jolly about the modern-life paranoia expressed by chief Talking Head David Byrne on this album that moany old Radiohead could learn from. Opening track 'I Zimbra' splices funk with afrobeat, paving the way for Byrne and Eno's mould-breaking My Life in the Bush of Ghosts album a few years later.
Paul Simon's Graceland might never have been made. The birth of English folk-rock. Considered an act of heresy by folk purists, this electrified album fragmented Album) band. No matter, the opening cry of 'Come all you roving minstrels' proved galvanic. Until Dare, synthesisers meant solemnity.
Phil Oakey's reinvention of the group as chirpy popsters, complete with two flailing, girl-next-door vocalists, feminised electronica. You might argue Nirvana's landmark album changed nothing whatsoever. All their best seditious instincts came to nothing, after all.
And yet Nevermind still rocks mightily, capturing a moment when the vituperative US underground imposed its agenda on the staid mainstream. Five good-looking young men hauled the jangling sound of Television and the Velvet Underground into the new millennium, reinvigorating rock's obsession with having a good time. Ten years after hip hop's arrival, its original joie de vivre had been subsumed by macho braggadocio.
Three Feet High made hip hop playful again, with light rhythms, unusual sound samples and its talk of the D. Acid house was sniffed at as a fad until it started producing 'proper' albums. Frequencies was its first masterpiece. Updating the pristine blueprint of Kraftwerk with house, acid, ambient and hip hop, it made dance music legitimate to album-buyers.
Restricting our anniversary list to a mere 50 was a tortuous process. We know you have opinions on these highly emotive matters, so join the debate and make a case for your choice of record at observer. The Observer Music. The 50 albums that changed music. Sun 16 Jul KE 3 Kraftwerk Trans-Europe Express Released at the height of punk, this sleek, urbane, synthesised, intellectual work shared little ground with its contemporaries. KE 5 Robert Johnson King of the Delta Blues Singers Described by Eric Clapton as 'the most important blues singer that ever lived', Johnson was an intensely private man, whose short life and mysterious death created an enduring mythology.
SOH 6 Marvin Gaye What's Going On Gaye's career as tuxedo-clad heart-throb gave no hint he would cut a concept album dealing with civil rights, the Vietnam war and ghetto life. LH 12 Miles Davis Kind of Blue A rare example of revolutionary music that almost everyone liked from the moment they heard it. NS 14 Joni Mitchell Blue Though Carole King's Tapestry was the biggest-selling album of the era, it is Joni Mitchell's Blue that remains the most influential of all the early Seventies outings by confessional singer-songwriters.
SOH 15 Brian Eno Discreet Music Brian Eno, it is said, invented ambient music when he was stuck in a hospital bed unable to reach a radio that was playing too quietly, giving him the eureka moment that set the course not only for his post-Roxy Music career as an 'atmosphere'-enhancing producer, but for the future of electronic music. EJS 20 The Byrds Sweetheart of the Rodeo At one inspired stroke, Sweetheart vanquished the cultural divide between acid-munching, peace-preaching long hairs and beer-swilling, flag-waving good old boys by creating the enduring hybrid of country-rock.
