Essentials

These are albums that are worth mentioning because of their impact and simple, awesome goodness, that came out some time ago and have already received just attention. As such, these aren’t albums that we want to talk about in the main part of the blog; they’ve been talked about by many other authors for quite some time, but they’re worth mentioning because they’re so fundamental to any collection of music. Much of this, we suspect our readers will have already heard, so we’re going to pull these out of the regular stream and give them a relatively-static page. We’ve listed them in alphabetical order by artist, then chronologically by album. If we do cover any specific album from this list on the main blog, we’ll be sure to turn the title of the album into a link here. By no means is this list all-inclusive, and we intend to add to it when we deem necessary.
