Ten classic albums released in 1977:

  1. Billy Joel - The Stranger (September)
  2. Meat Loaf - Bat out of Hell (October)
  3. Bob Marley & The Wailers - Exodus (June)
  4. Jackson Browne - Running on Empty (December)
  5. Sex Pistols - Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols (October)
  6. Lynyrd Skynyrd - Street Survivors (October)
  7. Cheap Trick - In Color (August)
  8. Jimmy Buffett - Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes (January)
  9. Fleetwood Mac - Rumours (February)
  10. Talking Heads - Talking Heads: 77 (September)

Earlier today, the Onion AV Club posted a new article in its My Favorite Music Year feature, an appreciation of 1977 by Jason Heller. Reading it, I was surprised to see so great albums named, and when I looked at the 1977 in music Wikipedia entry, I saw he'd only scratched the surface. It's a pretty amazing collection of music.
