When just milling around the flat one evening, avoiding doing any revision for exams again, I realised that it had been a long long time since I last got any new music to speak of. In an attempt to broaden my horizons, I suggested to my 2 flatmates that we each select our favourite 5 albums of all time and send them in each others direction. Sounded simple enough. It wasn't. Selecting my 5 albums has been tough and I know my 2 flatmates have also struggled to wittle it down from the countless albums they own to a mere 5.
Before revealing the 5 I chose, it is important to make a few points.
Firstly, there is a distinct lack of any albums from before 1980. This goes way back but was essentially due to the fact I grew up listening to my dads music; ACDC, Led Zeppelin, The Ramones e.t.c. Whilst these artists would undoubtedly feature on any list of all time top albums, I view these as my dads music and not music I had discovered myself. All 5 albums I have chosen were downloaded by myself having no prior knowledge of them.
