My Favorite 30 Albums of All-Time

Artists appear only once in the list. My Top 30 albums, along with my favorite tune on the album.
In no particular order, except Guster is easily the best of all albums and groups. I reserve the right to change this list at any time… because I know I’ll think of replacements and omissions. Sure, The Beatles rock... so does KISS, but they just did not make my list.

  1. Blues Traveler, top 30 albums of all time??


  2. Dude, "Hook" is such a stud song... it makes the album. I know, it's a reach, but it's so fucking hard to knock it down...

    Maybe I should have clarified too - it's my favorite 30 albums, not the top 30 of all-time.

  3. I got it!

    Though I'm curious if you like any other songs on that album. To tell you the truth, I thought "HOOK" was the only song on their!

    I kid, I kid!
