Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by Boogn1sh (2019)

Not an attempt to list the greatest albums, or most important, or most influential, or in fact be objective in any way, I am not a expert so I'll leave that to them. These are my favorite albums, the one's I've listened to the most and think I will continue listening to...Can't believe I wrote that almost 10 years ago. I'm happy to see this site still exists and is still active. Decided it was time to update the list and see how things have changed over the past decade. Not sure what I'd put on top at this point, the top 10 is pretty much interchangeable. I would probably pick Bob Dylan (a bunch of random stuff from different bootlegs) as my top album, as that's not an option, guess this works. On the Beach has probably brought me the most happiness

I really love this chart.
When I read your bio, usually people who head their chart with "not an attempt to ... be objective in any way" have that as justification for having the same three artists making up the top ten, or for never trying to explore music outside of their limited comfort zone. But with your chart not so at all.
So many picks I adore from a variety of the musical spectrum - if you added some notes to a few of these picks I'd give you a perfect score for sure. Brilliant stuff man!

This is one of the most interesting charts I have seen. It is also hard to argue with most of the picks. Great to see Third Sister Lovers and Another Green World in the Top ten. Also liked Spacemen 3, Apex Twin and Avalanches in there.
