Wolf Van Halen: “No legitimate list like this can overlook the importance of what Van Halen 1 did for the electric guitar” – Consequence 100 Greatest Albums LIST – 2022
I know these are subjective (and in the age of social media, designed to get people to hate-click and argue) but in my opinion, no legitimate list like this can overlook the importance of what Van Halen 1 did for the electric guitar.
Especially for a pretty well-rounded list of many genres, it’s disappointing to see something like this. It almost feels disrespectful.
Alas, this is the internet and I’m playing into the hand of social media by commenting on it blah blah etc.
Also, hey, please don’t pile on and shit on the list in their mentions. You think you’re defending something you like but that only makes you look like a stupid asshole.
It’s all subjective after all. Nobody is wrong when it comes to this. But also, no one is right.
All I’m saying is… you can’t ignore what that album did, and what my father did for the instrument.
In my opinion, that can’t be argued.
What makes an album truly great? 🤔
It’s a question we spent hours debating in hopes of creating this definitive ranking.
