The list is generated from my last.fm statistics (http://www.last.fm/user/aussiepoida). I would love to type a description and explanation for each one, but I simply do not have the time.
The number in the brackets represents the number of times I've played a 'track' from that album. Its no the total amount of times I've listened to the album as a whole - I'm not a madman after all :-)
I'll be curious to see how this list changes over the next year or two. I've been listening to some exciting new music lately (like M83, which I'm quite fond of) and I'm sure the placings will change considerable over the next few months. Its also interesting to see that a lot of albums that I havent listened to in ages are in my top 10.. namely The Beatles :-)
On the topic of lj-cuts: I would love to create some manner of lj-cut in order to please some of my readers that dont like my 'long' posts taking up room on their friend pages.... but alas I have no idea how to create them. Yes, I am a moron, but I've just spent 30 minutes fixing this post back up, because something went wrong when I tried to create a cut. Crazy.
