4 albums in common; This is one of the most unique charts I've seen on this site. It's great, really. Your notations are great, too. The only thing that keeps me from giving this a solid 100 is a few choices that I don't really agree. But beside that, this chart is amazing.

Although a good chart, I took some points off for being a little too short. Can't wait to see your other 50 choices!

The 70s punk rock items, balanced by the masterpieces of Alan Parsons production - this is a choice

From michaelroc2011 12/15/2013 09:17
Bit too punkish in places for me and I have not heard a lot of the albums. But I really like your inclusion of The Stranglers. And glad not to see the usual old "classics" apart from Dark side of the Moon - which has indeed stood up to the test of time.

Have you heard Mark Lanergans Band - Blues Funeral? No inclusion of the The Doors?

There's so much here that I haven't listened to, so it doesn't seem fair for me to rate the chart. However, it seems very unique, and there's a lot of artists I like. It's very interesting, so good job.
