I hereby challenge all readers to put out their personal list of the 20 Greatest albums of all time.
Top 15 /10 is also appreciated.
Use the comments section in this post or check out our Facebook page.
The poll will be open till Tuesday’ish.
- ONLY 5 Bob Dylan albums allowed
- It’s an album list, but 2 exceptions are allowed (Greatest Hits/Very Best/..)
This is meant to cover artists that didn’t really put out many “albums”, typically older music 40/50s.
Again: Don’t take theses lists so seriously ! It’s meant to be FUN.
It was a great poll to host, and we got lists in from 52 musicologists.
- It’s nice to see (though hardly a surprise) 3 Dylan albums on top (as on my list)
- lists with fewer than 5 did not count
- Live albums did not count, including my own “Live @ San Quentin”, as stated above.. this will be a separate poll
