My Most Important Albums, By Year (1978-2003)

Listly by Saren Sakurai

This list is inspired by the book Mo' Meta Blues by ?uestlove, in which he lists his most influential albums by year. The rule is that you have to have worn out the record in the year it was released. I have plenty of other records that were immensely important, but I came upon them after the year in which they debuted. This is more about immediate effect, in the moment, at the time.
