    Favourite song = too narrow and variable, favourite genre = we saw how that ended.

    But what do you think are the best albums ever released?

    I'll start (with a few of the very obvious picks), feel free to comment on them or others.

    Rumours - Fleetwood Mac (1977)
    Hugely influential, full of absolute classics and how the songs tie in to the band's interpersonal problems at the time is briliiant. Surprised it ever got made with all that going on, let alone that it was of such quality.

    Back in Black - AC/DC (1980)
    Second-highest selling album in history, #1 in it's genre. Again it's got tons of absolute belters on it. What a debut for a replacement lead singer.

    What's Going On? - Marvin Gaye (1971)
    Nothing short of a masterpiece. Flows together perfectly from one song to the next, it's not just a haphazard collection of singles. An early concept album and still one of the very best.

    I'll have to think about this but off the top of my head Led Zeppelin III and IV both definitely make the cut.
