Please Please Me / The Beatles

From the opening chords of “I Saw Her Standing There” to “Twist and Shout,” The Beatles’ debut highlights the group’s live energy and songwriting strength. Recorded, edited, and mixed in just over 25 hours, the mood of the album is raw and exuberant.

Control / Janet Jackson

After two solid but low-profile releases, “Control” turned 19-year-old Janet Jackson into an international superstar. It’s a subtle concept album about feminine independence — from the take-no-prisoners electro-funk of “Nasty” to the shimmering delicacy of “Let’s Wait Awhile.” The mixture of vibrant, melodic pop and dance floor-ready R&B especially shines in “What Have You Done for Me Lately.”
