Everybody loves music. Lets get away from these shitposts, politics, and memes for a second to work on a project together. So, I stole this idea from 4chan's music forum, but I want to create a music catalogue of the [b]most essential[/b] albums from every genre, the albums that truly define the style of music. I thought this could be a neat community project for #OffTopic to work on, and after, we'll have a music catalogue for everyone to use when they want to listen to something new. This is a great way to find new music, and have general music discussion and debate.
Imaged above, you can see an example catalogue I threw together pretty quickly just to show you what I mean (That's NOT the final rap catalogue, just an example I made!). Obviously, each genre has subgenres, or distinct families of music, and I'm not well versed in genres like Metal and Jazz, so you guys have to help me out with that.
I'm looking for the 5 most distinct subgenres from every genre, and at least 5 of the [b]most essential[/b] albums from each subgenre. Everyone has their favorite types of music, so I'm sure this won't be hard to do, so long as everyone contributes to the thread and keeps it alive. This will not work if you don't contribute or help out the thread.
I'm going to make individual posts in this topic with each main genre I think should be included, and I want you guys to comment your suggestions on the respective posts so I can keep everything organized. Suggest some albums (artist and title please), and subgenres. I'll need help from fans of each genre to make a good catalogue, so please communicate with your fellow music fans and discuss/debate which albums and subgenres ought to be there.
-Community Music Catalogue
-Only the [u]most essential[/u] albums. Not your favorites, the ones that define a genre
-Comment your suggestions in the corresponding posts from me below
-Debate with other fans of the same music to get best possible list of albums and subgenres
-Keep thread alive, this will take some time to complete, but I'm confident we can with enough cooperation from everyone[/b]
Edit: keep posting, I'm going to take all suggestions after a while and then we'll vote on the best
