  • Top 50 Favourite Albums WIP (rough draft / no order)

    Okay, so it's time to start compiling some favourite albums, in no specific order, yet. This list isn't going to be the typical 'greatest of all time', instead it will consist of personal favourites. Hopefully it will be interesting...

    A few guidelines:
    - No repeated artists showing on the list, it's alright having 2-3 albums per artist but we'll try and limit albums per artist.
    - Must have listened to album. Can't just listen to half an album and then make a decision on whether or not it's certifiable lol
    - Albums can be of any year, any genre.

    So here are 74 albums that I've thought of so far. I've put them into decades so I can see how the list is going to shape up...
