My Top 411 Albums (The 2008 List)

Below is a post my Top Albums 1-200,  that first appeared on my now-defunct blog in February 1999.  And I kept updating it until July 2008.  At that point I expanded the list.   And then I stopped at #411.  Not sure why.  Moved onto other things.  But Rolling Stone Magazines updated Top 500 albums list had me digging these long discarded album lists from the past.

My recently updated All Time Top 50 Albums shares many of the ones listed below.  Of course 12 years later and there are some albums I'm less enthused about.  In fact, 25 albums on this list ended up on my new Top 50, and 2 artists are now represented by different albums than the ones below.  And the difference between this '08 and '20 list is that there are no Greatest Hits/Compilations.  

Looking back I think it's a fairly interesting peak into my musical mindset circa the late 90's to mid-00's.  

The intro text is the same as it was in 1998.  But I took out any references to linked pages, as those are no longer available.

Top Albums All Time 1-200


Basically, this is a list of my favorite albums, with a twist. No Greatest Hits/Compilations. You also won't find Christmas CD's. Although, I could've added ones by Phil Spector and Elvis Presley. A closer look at the list will reveal a dearth of pre-Beatles acts. Remember, that the album as album didn't reach full bloom until the mid-60's.

End of Donald Trump's Presidency

Wish I could tell you that this is the last we will see of Donald Trump. But it's not.  The carnival barker will keep lying, hold his COVD super spreader rallies and try to con his way out of any legal troubles that will come up.  There's talk of him starting his own Trump TV station. It's also possible he'll run again in 2024. Or groom his dummy son, Jr., to do it. So, yes, I celebrate the fact that he was defeated, and wish Joe Biden the best. But the harm this monster did in 4 years will take generations to erase.
