I think the 80's pretty much sucked as well. Although of course there was some good stuff.

Now we're talking !

As for the 80s, Tom Waits and Van Morrison are the only artists that come to my mind that maintained a great standard of work. 1989 was a really good year with many of the old timers publishing some of their greatest album : Lou Reed, Neil Young, Dylan, Van... We also had Maria McKee's first solo album, the Georgia Satellites' third, and Stevie Ray Vaughan's "In step", which I personally love.

My favourite year ever ? Let me have a look ...

1971 was a great year for music. So was 1967,1968,1969, and 1977,1978,1979 too. I also love 1991 as I was a moody teen needing grunge music to fill my soul. Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, and Soundgarden did the trick. B)

1968 was a great year for music and helps prove why the last 5 years of the 1960's was way better for Rock N' Roll than the first 5 years. I love the fact you selected The Kinks are the Village Green Preservation Society, a severely underrated album!

That's a list not too much different than I might choose . The two Arctic monkeys I think still sound great, and Wildwood is still Wellers best album for me. And of course the Stone Roses

I'm from the Generation X so I was really starting to come into my own musically speaking at 14 years old. 1987 was a landmark year for me but I like music from many decades. I have many wonderful memories from 1987 and this plays into my love of that year in particular.

I put a list together and will try to post over the next day or so. I will need a little time to enter 52 years. However in my compiling I came across a very interesting revelation.

Now I know there would be a few lean years just like I knew there would be some tough choices to be made on other years with selections.

The only rule I followed is that I needed to have owned or had in my possession any albums on my list.

Now what I learned is that out of a collection of approximately 500 albums, 300 CD's I do not own

anything that was released in 1999 and 2000.

I found it hard to believe then realized most of my time during that time was devoted to the reunion tour.

I did not buy a new release but I sure acquired a shit load of boots in addition to the countless hours spent trying for tickets, waiting for ticket drops and off course spending time on Greasy Lake.

Agree with you regarding "lean music years" and "bountiful music years", 1998 and 1999 were tough, the late 90's was full of gangster rap, boy bands and awful Nu Metal! I'm 40 now and have always purchased at least 3-5 new albums every year, many times that number ranges from 20-25 as collecting music is my hobby. I look forward to your list and thank you. If it's alright, how about I list the albums I have from 2000. :)

2000

U2 - All That You Can't Leave Behind

Coldplay - Parachutes

Radiohead - Kid A

P.J. Harvey - Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea

The White Stripes - De Stijl

Ryan Adams - Heartbreaker

Johnny Cash - American III: Solitary Man

A Perfect Circle - Mer De Noms

The Smashing Pumpkins - Machina/The Machines Of God

Iron Maiden - Brave New World

Madonna - Music

Agree with you regarding "lean music years" and "bountiful music years", 1998 and 1999 were tough, the late 90's was full of gangster rap, boy bands and awful Nu Metal! I'm 40 now and have always purchased at least 3-5 new albums every year, many times that number ranges from 20-25 as collecting music is my hobby. I look forward to your list and thank you. If it's alright, how about I list the albums I have from 2000. :)

Coldplay - Parachutes

Radiohead - Kid A

P.J. Harvey - Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea

A Perfect Circle - Mer De Noms

The Smashing Pumpkins - Machina/The Machines Of God
