Top 100 Albums Of All Time

"Great, now everyone's taxes are going to smell like bong water."

So I realize that there is pretty much no way I can do the predictions like I did last year because...well, I'm actually working. So, hopefully, I can write down some of my thoughts and observations, but unfortunately, they won't be nearly as in-depth as in previous times. So, I figured I would do something a little different this time around. In case you are not aware of this, I am obsessed with making lists. Always have been, and it doesn't seem like I'll be slowing down anytime soon. Anyway, I have been doing a ton of downloading since I got my new laptop (let's just assume that it's legal and I'm doing it over a connection that I'm paying for...). With all that being said, here's my newest list: The Top 100 Albums of All Time. Many have made them before, and I won't be the last, but I guess I figured I would give you some insight into the kind of tunes I'm into.
