The HMOverlord has had an ABC Award generously bestowed upon him by Cave Of Fame! As a result I am compelled to do my own music-related ABC list. I decided to do mine in picture form!
Here is my A to er… Y of albums I love (really wish I owned ZZ Top’s First Album now). In picking the albums I gave myself a couple of ground rules:
- Only one album from an artist is allowed (or it would have been mostly KISS and Manowar)
- No compilations or live albums (no KISS Alive! then…)
- Has to be a CD I own so that I can fit them into a pic! (That ruled out Killer and Master of Puppets cause I only have them on vinyl)
- Ignore “The” and “A”
- The album title has to be on the spine (so no Aqualung or In Trance)
These rules mean that this is not a definitive list of my favourite albums. For example: Def Leppard’s X is the only album I own that starts with an X! As a result, Hysteria couldn’t be included even though that’s one of my Top 10 albums of all time. But I have only included albums that I genuinely love and rate highly (except X) so hopefully this is interesting anyway and you can praise/deride my inclusions/exclusions at your leisure!
And while I’m at it I’d like to pass on an ABC award to some of my favourite bloggers. I’m interested to know what ABC lists this lot might come up with (although I understand if they don’t have the time to take part). Please note, you don’t have to do a list like mine or follow my rules! It can cover any topic in whatever form you like… as long as it’s an A-Z (or A-Y…) list!
