Here it is folks, my all-time ten favorite rock albums. Each album will have my reasons for choosing it as a favorite. I’m not claiming these are the greatest rock albums ever, just that they are the records I’ll never get tired of listening to. And if they spark some debate, awesome!

In the coming days I’ll review each album individually, but for here’s the list:
