Personal Favorite Music Albums

Michael J. Krizik
The list author says: "This is just a long listing of some of my favorite music albums, although they are put together on a list, I don't really feel there's a particular order for them to go by. I did also list some other recommendations (since amazon only allows up to 40 items) so you can check those out as well."
