A bit more old school here, sorry for the long write up in no particular order:

1. Earth, Wind & Fire - "I am"       

An album with hits like "Boogie Wonderland" and "After the Love Has Gone", other stand out tracks include the opening "in the Stone" and "star". You know an album is pretty solid when one of your hits isn't good enough to be part of it - "September" which they opted to leave out.


2. Prince - "Purple Rain"         

Regularly ranked among the best albums in music history, it was ranked the second-best album of the 1980's by Rolling Stone and 76th out of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time; and for good reason!  You may not know of Prince, but you definitely have heard his hits at some point.
There is not a single bad song on this amazing soundtrack, made for the movie of the same name which also dominated the scene. With four singles making it to #1 on numerous charts, the album was certified 13x platinum and held the record for 24 weeks at number one; not broken until 2012 by Adele's album 21. 

3. Erykah Badu - "Baduizm"    

​The Debut album by the artist dubbed "the Queen of Neo-Soul", it's a wonderful introduction to the wonderful world of Badu, combining the sounds of hip-hop and soul together to make something amazing. The album is recognized alongside D'Angelo's "Brown Sugar" and Maxwell's "Urban Hang Suite" as beginning neo soul's popularity and helping it gain commercial visibility during the 90s.


4. Jamiroquai - "Emergency on Planet Earth"  

Frankly ahead of their time, the album mix of funk and acid jazz, dealing with still relevant world issues such as environmental awareness, war and politics, brought organic sounding music and instruments to the public eye; such as the didgeridoo. While their sound has changed since their original formation in 1992, their evolution has not come at the cost of their music. 


5. DJ Quik - "Safe + Sound" (couldn't find the full album) 

Inspired by funk and soul artists such as George Clinton and Roger Troutman, DJ Quik is an example of what happens when P-Funk meets G-Funk. The bass lines and talk box use certainly rise to the top of  Quik's unique sound, with the album considered one of DJ Quik's best works. Stand out tracks such as "Get at Me", "Safe + Sound" and "Dollaz + Sense" are complimented by equally smooth and funky tracks like "Somethin' 4 Tha Mood", "Don't You Eat It!" and "Tha Ho In You". An album that keeps on hitting through it's whole play through.
