It took me about an hour to think about 10 albums I love, bold certain words, get the pictures, and type up a description. I'm so done with this thread :lol:

That's the same rule I always set myself. For me, it makes it a fun challenge to pick the best of the best, in my opinion, of the bands/artists I like.
