INCONTOURNABLES

Voici des albums que je considère incontournables pour plusieurs raisons : ils ont marqué une étape de l’évolution de la composition, de l’enregistrement studio, d’un style, d’un mouvement, bref, des albums phares. Je les classe de façon chronologique pour ne pas en faire un classement comparatif qui ne rend jamais justice aux œuvres…
