The Best Albums Of The 1970s-Part 6 Out Of 10: 1975

Hello and welcome everyone to the 10 part series: The best albums of the 1970s! These right are the best albums of 1975!

There were a lot of groundbreaking things happening in the 70s. Funk and Soul were stretching out and embracing psychedelic tendencies in equal measure with socio-political themes. Rock was getting harder and harder and metal was right around the corner due to a large number of these harder edged rock bands(Zeppelin, Sabbath and the handful of excellent proto-punk and proto-metal bands). Electronic music was starting to peek it's head into the mainstream and coming out from under the extreme underground and intellectual circles. This era gave birth to some of our most creative icons who would go onto last multiple decades. So dig in, see what the 70s has to offer!
