I thought this would be a fun thing for all of us to do :magic: 

Go to http://topsters.net and pick between 50, 100 or a custom collage :)

Mine is based around a few things:
iTunes and last.fm plays, influence on my life, how it challenged me to discover new genres, the amount of songs I enjoyed on the album and how obsessed I was with the album
Some artist have a song or two that have completely changed my perspective on music or have had a huge impact on my life, but the rest of their music didn't do much for me so I decided not to include those.

Things that surprised me:
There's not as much metal as I expected there to be.
I wanted to include more Judy Garland, but they didn't really have that many albums by her. 
I didn't include any showtunes /musicals outside of Evita, which isn't even my favorite musical 
Maybe I should make a list of my favorite songs then one of my favorite showtunes 
But that would just be a pointless mess right? :stretcher: 

I considered taking off some of the repeated artists to include other artists I love.
Madonna for example has 6 albums on this list, but she's also made a huge impact on my life by being one of the first artists I ever loved.
Her music introduced me to so many artists I love today, plus helped me through so fucking much when I was younger.
Not having the albums that shaped me into who I am today doesn't feel right. 
Looking at it now I feel weird about not including David Bowie, Barbra Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Accept, Ozzy era Black Sabbath etc. since they've been hugely important artists in my life.
What a mess, I just made this and already want to change shit :stretcher:
I need a top 500 list :stretcher:

This was so much fun to do! Like @trayertrash, I included all my all-time favourites, a few current favourites as well as some albums which I don't actually think are that great but which meant a lot to me growing up. :stretcher: I didn't include EPs or soundtrack albums cos I thought it was kinda cheating but there's definitely some Sky, Bonnie and Neon EPs I'd include if I could. :P

@Countess Great list :hail: 

I recognized everything but the ones beside Skye, Nelly Furtado, Heidi and Leona - what are those? :o  

Leighton Meester - Heartstrings: Still a stellar album tbh, California soft rock with a lot of heart to it. <3 

Dev - The Night the Sun Came Up: I don't really check for her now, but I used to love this album and be obsessed with her!

U2 - All That You Can't Leave Behind: My mum used to play this in the car every time we went driving and I used to sing my little heart out to it. :stretcher: Still has some jams tbh!

Kid Cudi - Man On The Moon: The End of Day: Another one I never listen to anymore but I remember being totally obsessed with it for about six months.
