The best year for music?

I have always had strong, rather passionate opinions about music.  One of the few physical fights that I have had, in my life, started with an argument about music. However a few years ago if you had asked me – what was the best year ever for music? I would have had trouble answering.
 
Maybe:
1968 – Beatles – White Album, Rolling Stones – Beggars Banquet, Jimmy Hendrix – Electric Ladyland, Otis Redding – Dock of a Bay

Or:
1970 – Marvin Gaye – What’s going on, Led Zeppelin III, Van Morrison – Moondance, The Doors – Morrison Hotel

I would have probably have gone for:
1977 – Sex Pistols – Never Mind the Bollocks, Clash – The Clash, Ramones – Rocket to Russia, Iggy Pop – Lust for Life, Bob Marley – Exodus
These days I would find that question easy to answer it was:

1959 – Miles Davis – Kind of Blue, Charles Mingus – Ah Um, Dave Brubeck – Time Out, Ornette Coleman – Shape of Jazz to come

It’s official, I am not very Rock n’ Roll anymore!
