Top 50 Greatest Music Albums by MarkMayes (2019)

Music, it's timeless. Not to be categorized; and within the context of this forum examined as an album -- a complete play. Myriad album's critical concensus are merited, the albums in this chart though, have nothing to do with other's ratings, only mine - they are complete plays that are completely playable, from start to end, that ring true and can be listened to repeatedly.

I know you said it's a work in progress, but 9/10 of you top 10 albums are what I think are some of the most overrated albums ever xD, really sorry. Props for The Soft Bulletin & Velvet Underground & Nico though.
