Why so serious? Well, this is a serious matter…
These are my chosen records, the list is dynamic. That means that it changes from day to day. The top 10 is fairly constant, but they switch places. My lists are always snapshots of my mind on a particular moment.
I am working on a list for concert albums, the list below would have been a bit different if we hadd allowed live albums to be included.
The list would also have looked a bit different if we had allowed more than one album by the artists.
