OK, so these are the albums I own. I have been collecting music for years... and have inherited a lot from other family members. I will start with CDs, but may also add in the albums on vinyl and cassettes (wow, remember them?!)
They will be mostly older names, names from 80s and 90s with a few "modern" artists here and there. Yes! Yes! I know I need to branch out a bit more from the mainstream. That would be nice but I don't have as much money to spend these days. Not like I did when I was 18 / 19 / 20, when money grew on trees. :s
OK, here we go....
A | How Ace Are Buildings | Hi-Fi Serious | Teen Dance Ordinance
a-ha | Hunting High and Low | Scoundrel Days | Stay on These Roads
AFI | Sing the Sorrow | Decemberunderground
ABBA | Romance
Adam & The Ants | Dirk Wears White Sox

31 Jul 2009, 19:47 by concretedonkeyEquipment used to play vinyls: Pro-ject Carbon with the Ortofon 2M Red cartridge, generic Kenwood amplifier, Tannoy Revolution 8XT floor speakers (pictured below), Rega fono MM pre-amplifier.
My computer comes equpped with an old Soundblaster X-Fi XtremeMusic sound card and foobar2000 is used for playback. Lossless (FLAC) is the norm in 'ere, although 1/3 of my digital music collection is still in mp3. I also have a spinclean for manual cleaning of the vinyls. Pain in the arse. Vinyl records are not likely to be scrobbled to last.fm. Gone are the compulsive days of early adulthood and nights with Universal Scrobbler.
My iPod 4g nano is the last of its kind that is able to scrobble. The sound quality is pretty bad, when compared to newer models. It's good for gym, though. Earphones - AKG K32something (the text is kinda worn out).
Planned upgrades: Ortofon 2M black cartridge, Synthesis Flame amplifier, proper biwire speaker cables. …

7 Jan 2007, 16:47 by FunkafonikHere's my list of favorite albums, listed by year of release, from 1980 to 1989.
These are general rankings of how I see them today and based on the Last.FM playcounts (2005-now) put through my formula:
Total of each Album's Song's (running time X playcount)
Album's Total Running Time
Thanks to MediaMonkey, that formula gives the Albums' REAL playcounts, taking every song's lenght/playcount into consideration. You'll see the result besides each albums, along with my 10* Rating, and total % these ratings give each Year.
Note that I haven't necessarily discovered and enjoyed all these albums on their released years, some I discovered years later. So these are also based on how important (to me) some of these albums were at the time.
(**) are the complete albums I was into at that time;
(*) are albums that contained only a few song(s) I was into or listened to;
and those without are albums I discovered years later.
