Okay, okay. I get that Revolver is the second-most critically acclaimed album of all time, and the goat album for many people. It’s one of my favorite albums of all time myself. But c’mon, only five votes for It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back? That album was the one which established Hip Hop as an art form, which is today arguably the most popular genre of music in the world. While there were other rap albums beforehand which are considered classics (Raising Hell, Paid In Full, etc.) It Takes A Nation elevated the genre singlehandedly imo. It’s the Pet Sounds of rap music, if you really think about it. I’d argue that It Takes A Nation was more important, revolutionary, and simply better musically-wise than Revolver is. I know that is definitely an unpopular opinion, but I thought I’d share my thoughts on that.
