50 All-Time Favorite Albums, as of 2021

What makes a favo­ri­te album? I find that a lot of albums I con­sider to be my favo­ri­tes acted as gate­ways to new gen­res that I other­wi­se would­n’t have explo­red. A favo­ri­te album can be thrown on at any time and enjoy­ed all the way through. Some albums earn a spot on my list not only becau­se I can lis­ten to them from begin­ning to end and enjoy every sin­gle track, but they defi­ned a moment in time during an important part of my life and trig­ger nost­al­gic memo­ries. The­re are a few albums on this list that I haven’t lis­ten­ed to in a long time, but also some that I just dis­co­ver­ed within the last twel­ve months. I feel like making a list like this could be inte­res­t­ing in order to see how pre­fe­ren­ces chan­ge during the coming years.
