List of favorite albums by month

From TheAlmightyGuru
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of my favorite albums based on the month they were released.

When I love multiple albums released in the same month of the same year, which frequently happens because albums are primarily released in the fall, this list will only show my most favorite album of the month. Although this does cause many of my favorite albums over all to be eliminated, it gives a better view of my favorite music across time.

Compilation albums are measured based solely on new content only, and albums with an unknown month of release are ineligible.
