My Favourite 100 Albums of All Time, The Ultimate List

This idea is unashamedly stolen/borrowed from Kendall, who posted his list here. As he’s my oldest friend, and our musical discoveries crisscrossed and intertwined at the most formative of times, I’m sure he’d be proud that I’m continuing the legacy of his idea. Whilst I have tried to stay true to Kendall’s rules of 3 albums per artist, I absolutely can’t in the case of Bon Jovi. I could have included 10 albums from my favourite band, but have limited it to 4, with a solo effort from Jon Bon Jovi too.

I also have way more than 3 albums from various artists, as compilations and soundtracks have always made up a huge part of what I listen to, and as it’s my list, I make the rules. Please do comment away, on what you’d have included that I haven’t – let’s get the discussion flowing. Like Kendall, these albums are in alphabetical order rather than ranking them 1 to 100, but it would be all Bon Jovi/Jon Bon Jovi at the top. Yes, I have a very eclectic taste in music. Hey, variety is the spice of life.
