I didn't really look at it as an order, I just did 50 albums that I love and that mean a lot to me or helped shape my taste in any way and just made sure the top 4 was right. The rest I knew just belonged in my top 50, but didn't have a specific number attached to it in my head.

Well he is the ****. I snubbed quite a few albums by keeping it to one album per artist except in a few cases.

I'd love to see yours, Neo.

I thought about doing it, but I really haven't listened to enough total music to put together a meaningful top 50.
