I've decided to do a countdown of my favorite 50 albums of the past five years.
I want to rank these 'modern classics'.
All albums in the countdown were released between 01 August 2008 - 01 August 2013.
I've included studio albums only, no greatest hits packages or live albums.
Some albums that didn't make the Top 50:
- Garbage | Not Your Kind Of People (2012)
- Kings Of Leon | Only By The Night (2008)
- Jessie J | Who You Are (2011)
- Alanis Morissette | Havoc & Bright Lights (2012)
- Train | Save Me, San Francisco (2009)
- OneRepublic | Native (2013) *
- Kanye West | Yeezus (2013) *
- Jay-Z | Magna Carta Holy Grail (2013) *
* It's too early to rank these records. I need to listen to them more and put them in perspective.
