Essential Charts EDIT COMMENTS (151) SHARE

All charts provided here are to be used as an entry-point into a genre, allowing you
to gain a basic understanding of what a genre could have to offer. It is
recommended that you explore genres on your own after having listened through
some of the recommended music. Help with exploring music can be found at the
Discovering Music page.

Do not treat the /mu/ essential chart as a "required listening for /mu/ chart." It
doesn't matter if you have or haven't listened to the albums on the chart at all. The
only reason it has been added to this wiki is for archival purposes and ease of
access for everyone. If you come to /mu/ and listen to a lot of albums that happen
to be on the /mu/ essentials chart, everyone will call you a "/mu/drone" and hate
you, because a lot of people on /mu/ seem to think that the /mu/ essentials is a list
of albums that only /mu/ likes, and is not a list of some of the most critically
acclaimed albums of all time that a lot of people like outside of /mu/. Remember
that being your own special little snowflake is an encouraged behaviour, and you
should show this by flaunting your chart and in peoples faces, filled with
music by obscure EAI, Onkyokei and field recording artists from countries that you
can't even pronounce.

You can download (nearly) all essential charts from here .
