My Favourite Albums

This is what we would call my favourite albums of all time. Anything on this list is quite worth buying.

It’s quite possible I forgot some things, and any ranking is interchangeable with most things up to 10 or 15 spots away, because ranking things is silly. But for some reason we love to do it anyway.

Expect it to be updated with some amount of frequency (last time was July 05)
