By no means a comprehensive list, here are fifteen of the greatest albums by female artists in my library. Again, the order of entry does not imply a ranking, these are all albums I consider to be worthwhile, extraordinary and musically engaging; simply enjoy them!
Little Queen – 1977
“Barracuda” destroys; whose says girls can’t rock?
Kala – 2007
Unmistakable, fearless and divisive; must be M.I.A.
Pearl – 1971
The whiskey-weathered voice and sheer power of a talent taken way too early.
Hounds of Love – 1985
Her breakthrough album, made entirely in her home studio.
I Do Not Want What I Have Not Got – 1990
Her genius lies in small touches, dynamics and contrast.
Stumble Into Grace – 2003
Collaborations with Malcom Burn and Daniel Lanois breathe new life.
Bad Reputation – 1980
Post-Runaways, pre-Blackhearts; the original bad girl.
Bella Donna – 1981
Her debut album proved that she didn’t need Lindsey like air.
Peach – 2017
Blues, rock, guitars and attitude.
Jagged Little Pill – 1995
Canadian girl wins over the world. Brilliant songwriting.
The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill – 1998
Stunning debut, crossover or cross-culture, all good.
Hannah Wicklund & The Stepping Stones – 2018
Tiny girl, huge sound.
Back to Black – 2006
One of a kind talent; gone too soon.
Horses – 1975
Intense, emotional and electric; Smith has never made a bad album.
19 – 2008
Before she ruled the world, Adele made simple, stunning music.
One thought on “Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves”
Wow !! Love this list, so many I have and memories 😱 Dan and I saw Alanis live and her show was amazing. You were living in table view and Allie and I went to get pizza in a hurricane/ mega storm and had Sinade playing. First time I had heard her. Think Ana Popovic needs to be added – power house.
Great list Rick
