To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal...Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle...

So I was listening to some old albums that I liked in high school and start to feel a little nostalgic... These memories of mine led me on a quest to discover my favorite albums of all time. So I began... but I quickly realized my list was too long. There are just too many to pick from. So instead of making a list of all of them I decided to make a list of my favorite albums for any given year.

I made a rule that I had to have listened to the album in that year. For example, I really liked DJ Shadows- Entroducing which was released in 1996 however, I can't add it to my list because I didn't discover it until 1999. So it is out of the picture.

The list goes all the way back to 1990 when I got my first cassette tape for my birthday.
