50 Albums Every Woman Should Own

Esquire.com kicked off their Music Week with a list of “75 Albums Every Man Should Own,” which had lots of great stuff us ladies at The Frisky actually own, like, David Bowie’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On, and Bob Marley’s Catch A Fire. But shockingly, there were only four albums featuring female artists (that I counted — someone correct me if I am wrong) — Tina Turner (with Ike Turner), Nico (with The Velvet Underground), Liz Phair’s Exile In Guyville, and The Pixies’ Doolittle (featuring Kim Deal). Really dudes? No Billie Holiday? Or Aretha? Or Janis Joplin. Fine. But what about the albums every woman should own? The Frisky compiled a master list, only we didn’t shy away from including dudes. Check out the full list of 50, after the jump, and please add your own in the comments!
