Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by discojets1 (2017)  

« View previous chartView next chart »

These albums are what I perceive to be the greatest albums of all time.

My Top 10 albums are set in stone, but everything else tends to move around a lot.

I've also added something at the end to show how quickly I took a liking to the record.
INSTANT CLASSIC – Loved it on first listen
FLIP-FLOP – Hated it/thought it was boring on first listen, loved it after revisiting some time later
SLOW BURN – From mediocre to excellent over many listens

Just listening to Selling England and thinking how I love that and Foxtrot (also SLOW BURN albums as you've put it), and I don't like Lamb that much... Hope that will change. Oh and did I mention how good this chart is?

I like your INSTANT CLASSIC,FLIP-FLOP, and SLOW BURN categories - I'm sure once my chart gets to 100, we'll have lots in common. We're already at 10/40.

Son glad to see supertramp at the top. Very intreating chart. It's interesting that you choose The Lamb over other Genesis stuff.

35 albums in common says a lot about our common tastes, but it is never too much to compliment a fellow that can really appreciate the same taste. Great chart!
