Re: AMF Favorite Albums of All-Time -- RESULTS

I wish Sgt. Pepper's had been the album to take a surprising drop instead of Blonde on Blonde and Exile on Main Street...I think the Beatles are in for redemption after Arcade Fire beat all of their albums last time around.

Re: AMF Favorite Albums of All-Time -- Prediction Thread

Beatles albums from 1965-1969 in the top 30: 5 Any album made from 1990-2017 in the top 30: 6 I wonder if/when newer music will begin to have more proportional placement on the top of the list.
