Guitar World greatest albums - decade anniversaries lists (2011-2015)

Postby Pierre » Fri Oct 06, 2017 10:42 pm

Apparently that was a thing a few years ago at Guitar World - celebrating the tenth, twentieth, thirtieth or fourtieth anniversary of a year with a top of "essential albums of", "albums that defined" "great albums celebrating their #0th anniversary" and other random qualifications. Also, when they say 50, read 5#.

Personal unnecessary achievement: I just managed to find a second list with KISS's Music from 'The Elder'! Embarrassing.
