    Which Album of the Year wins do you think were correct looking back?

    In my opinion:

    1968: The Beatles, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Band
    1972: Carole King, Tapestry
    1978: Fleetwood Mac, Rumours
    1984: Michael Jackson, Thriller
    1999: Lauryn Hill, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill
    2010: Taylor Swift, Fearless (The weakest lineup in recent years)
    2011: Arcade Fire, The Suburbs
    2012: Adele, 21

    1973 : Innervisions – Stevie Wonder

    1977 : Songs In The Key Of My Life – Stevie Wonder

    1979 : Saturday Night Fever – Bee Gees

    1984 : Thriller – Michael Jackson

    1989 : Faith – George Michael

    1991 – Back On The Block – Quincy Jones

    1992 : Unforgettable.. With Love – Natalie Cole

    1999 : The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill – Lauryn Hill

    2003 : Come Away With Me – Norah Jones

    2004 : Speakerboxx/The Love Below – Outkast

    2012 : 21 – Adele

    2014 : Random Access Memories – Daft Punk

     

    I still list have to listen to many of these other albums though. And artists like Sade, Prince, Madonna etc definitely deserved to win AOTY at some point.

    Last few years…
    2016: yes, Swift
    2015: yes, Beck
    2014: yes, Daft Punk
    2013: no, Mumford & Sons (either Frank Ocean or Black Keys)
    2012: yes, Adele
    2011: hell yes, Arcade Fire
    2010: hell no, Swift (nobody from that list deserved to win)
    2009: can’t say, Plant/Krauss
    2008: of course not, Hancock (Kanye’s Graduation should’ve won)
    2007: hell yes, Dixie Chicks
    2006: no, U2 (Mariah, Kanye had better albums)
    2005: no, Charles (Alicia, Green Day and Kanye had better albums)
    2004: yes, Outkast
    2003: no, Jones (Dixie Chicks had a better album)
    2002: maybe, O Brother (U2 had a great album, much better than their future winner)
    2001: no, Steely Dan (Eminem should’ve won)
    2000: yes, Santana (TLC’s Fanmail is a favorite of mine, but I can understand why Satana won)
    1999: of course, Hill (amazing category).

    I loved watching Alison Krauss and Robert Plant clean house in early 2009. (smiles)

    God bless you and them always!!!

    Holly (a fan of Alison since 1994)

    P.S. I can’t wait for Alison’s new album on February 17th! (smiles)

    The Dixie Chicks’ Taking the Long Way, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’ Raising Sand, and Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill are modern-day masterworks that hands-down deserved their trophies.

    Even though there’s some filler on it, I think the “Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack deserved its win due to its impact and some absolutely killer singles and album tracks.

    True. The album is amongst the most defining of its decade and created such a dance craze. There are so much classics on it

    One thing for certain, in last two consecutive years Grammy voters got wrong to crown AOTY title.

    I’ll take it this way, the years they picked a great or at least good album:
    1968 – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
    1971 – Bridge over Troubled Water
    2002 – O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack
    2011 – The Suburbs
    2014 – Random Access Memories
    2015 – Morning Phase (although Beck has made a lot of better albums than this one)

    But there are lots of Grammy winners I haven’t listened to, so my opinion doesn’t count much.

    Well…I’m not a 1989 fan, but I/we can at least understand where the win came from. Much more understandable than her Fearless win. The only thing it has going for it, is that it was a “country” album and the most popular from an awful list. Like I said, nobody deserved to win that year. But 1989 at least is a respectable win, with or without Kendrick on the list.

    Hell, Swift’s 1989 doesn’t deserve Grammy. Kendrick Lamar’s is much better, but Grammy is Grammy, they went commercial lately.
