My Top 100 Albums Of All Time

My Top 100 Albums Of All Time
The following is a list of my most favorite albums of all time. This is the music I grew up on, and music I will always have with me until the day I die. These all IMHO are must-owns. I made this list while going through my collection, which at times is alphebetized, sometimes organized according to genre, year, phase of my life associated with music, you get the idea. In no way is this list made in order of importance, as all of this music is equally important to me. I must also say that paring this list down to 100 albums has been a task I've worked on for almost 2 weeks now, and I still don't feel completely comfortable with all of my choices - as there were many others - but set a goal for 100, so here they are.
