Top 100 Favorite Albums

I love listening to albums. As in the entire album. That's the way I prefer to listen to music β€” the whole album as intended (sometimes) by the artist, rather than as singles in a play list. They can be intentional and linear, or even tell a story from start to finish. Or some great albums are great just because every song on it kills, and they all feel right together or compliment each other.

Here is a list of my (current) 100 favorite albums.

I chose these albums because they are the albums that I just keep coming back to, listening to them over and over again; or they had a very profound impact on me and have left a lasting impression, or even if they aren't my favorite artist I just felt that the album was extremely impressive in its execution and quality.
