Here's my list of favorite albums, listed by year of release, from 1970 to 1979.

These are general rankings of how I see them today and based on the Last.FM playcounts (2005-now) put through my formula:

Total of each Album's Song's (running time X playcount)
DIVIDED BY
Album's Total Running Time

Thanks to MediaMonkey, that formula gives the Albums' REAL playcounts, taking every song's lenght/playcount into consideration. You'll see the result besides each albums, along with my 10* Rating, and total % these ratings give each Year.

(*) are albums that contained only a few song(s) I was into or listened to;
and those without are albums I discovered years later.

    Zappa is great but he has so many damn albums it's hard to know where to start! About the Stones, I don't really like or see what's the big fuss about them... they bore me to death...
