The Album Top 100

posted: May 19, 2012

Real life has been keeping me very busy lately, which explains the lack of updates for over more than a year! Fortunately there's one thing I seem to be able to combine with whatever it is I'm doing at the time, and that is music.

So when Studio Brussel broadcasted the Album Top 100 (a list of one hundred albums combined by the listeners), I tuned in and listened to as much of the tracks as I could.

Anyway, here is the list (included are the tracks that have been played on air).

If you want to know more about an album, just click it's link - those that are already in my collection are listed in italic and link to my own music pages, the others are linked to their DiscoGS master releases.

There still are a lot of albums to be discovered, though - but thanks to my morning and evening commute, I've got plenty of opportunity to listen to them in my car.
