Roadie Crew: 40 most important concept albums in history (2017)

For a change, this one's ranked. And not only did I managed unwillingly to find a third nom for KISS's Music from "The Elder" , I also managed to find pretty much the only list in the world where it's ranked above Ziggy Stardust . I'm pretty sure that's some sort of sin that I'll have to p...

Roadie Crew: anniversary lists (2016 & 2017)

Looks like they started a thirtieth anniversary thing in 2010 with the 1980 list I already posted, continued in 2011 for 1981, then gave up on it and resumed them in 2014 and 2015 for 1984 and 1985, only this time making lists of songs rather than albums.
