Off-Topic: So here I am .. thinking that I haven’t burned a new CD for my car in about 2 years. So, I load my MusicMatch and start to ponder …

What Type Of Music Do I Want To Listen To?

Well .. then it hits me … How about all of songs from the Top 10 Greatest Albums of Time? Fortunately, my car stereo can play songs in .mp3 format .. so this “BURN” could actually fit 18 complete albums (including a double album) so I’ve extended this list to the Top 18+ Greatest Albums of All Time. Oh, and just in case the Country & Western Groupies and Rap Groupies and Pop Groupies want to argue that their favorite album isn’t on this list .. I will even go once again to modify my title to include only CLASSIC ROCK Albums that I grew up with!

And .. since I don’t want the added pressure of stating that one album is better than the other … I have decided to just sort this list in order by the year of its release.

What makes a Top Album Of All Time? Well .. i.m.o. – it will be ..

* one that you can play all the songs back to back and over and over …
* one that you know all of the words for every song on the album ..
* one that make your feet tap as you sing along .. even after you turn the music down ..
* one that you never get tired of listening to the album .. and of course ..
* one that ends up on this list created by HART!

Feel free to click on any album and view the track listing on Amazon (or even buy the album!)
