Studio Brussels' 500 Greatest Albums of All-Time

Postby Chilton » Wed Jun 03, 2015 6:39 pm

Hum... Not much support for the French rock scene from our Belgian neighbours, heh? :P No matter, that's still great to see more Arno and TC Matic. However, I'm puzzled by the inclusion of Stromae's Cheese, because it's nowhere near the quality of Racine carrée IMO. It has one fantastic song, but aside from one or two others, the rest of the album is pretty dull.

Very rock-oriented list, but the inclusion of two Underworld albums made my day! Most underrated band ever :)

A Belgian list of 500 albums without Jacques Brel! :(
I think the list would be eligible anyway.

There are several lists from Studio Brussels at rocklist.net: http://www.rocklistmusic.co.uk/studio.htm
Is this the first time the staff put together a list for listeners to choose from?
Everyone you meet fights a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.

I can't answer your last question, since I'm not Belgian myself, but for the lack of Jacques Brel, I think it's safe to assume that this list is rock-exclusive (with a few token albums in other genres, but obviously not chanson).

I'm not 100% sure, but I think it's indeed the first time they did this.

Studio Brussels is a self-proclaimed radio station for youngsters and, as Pierre already mentioned, it's extremely (alternative) rock-oriented, so indeed no Jacques Brel :angry-banghead: , but lots of dEUS and Balthazar. :happy-partydance:


@Pierre, it's a Flemish radio station, so that probably explains the lack of French-language albums. I'm actually surprised Serge Gainsbourg got in.

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for the explanation!
