Top 50 Albums

As promised, this is my list of my favorite albums. I used almost the same formula as before, but instead of multiplying the score by hours of music, I added 10% of the total minutes of the album. So if the album is 49 minutes long, I added 4.9 to the score. Here are my current Top 50 Albums:

Florence & The Machine - Love their sound! How did Marilyn Manson get on your list—blah! I don't listen to a varied music list, but I've always appreciated most of the artists you've introduced me to—thanks!

Deanna: Franz Ferdinand may not be one of the best bands of all time, but these 2 albums are solid.

Kelsey: Marilyn Manson got on the list the same way all the others did--by producing a killer album. We don't choose the music we like, it chooses us.
