It is hard to see but The White Album
+1 I bought it the day it came out in '68...I was fourteen. There was nothing like it at the time, and nothing like it since with regard to the range of styles. Compare "Blackbird" to "Helter Skelter" and your head will explode.+1. Was just returning to post the image. Thanks for saving me the trouble. First album I ever bought with my own money, when I was 8. Never was the same again.
Big L was an incredibly gifted MC, and that Lifestyles... album was an incredibly raw and stunning work. Pretty amazing to think that album was the first time I ever heard Jay Z on anything, just as a footnote.
