As I write this post, Phil's Tracks is more than halfway through its 3rd season, and I have already introduced 9 of my top 10 albums all time. Starting with my very first episode, I assigned an album rating for the Maintrack (album) for that episode. Based on 5 maximum 5 stars. The criteria has changed as time went on, and is now as follows:
***** Top 10 Album All Time
**** Top 100, Outside the Top 10
***Not Top 100
** Like only one song
* Album meant for someone, not meant for me.
To date, I have announced 9 of my top 10 5 Star Albums. Leaving room for only one more....unless I relegate one to 4 stars....and yes in Episode #72 I will announce what album will be relegated.
Here are the current 5 Star Albums and the corresponding Phil's Tracks Episode.
#3 Jethro Tull Aqulung
#4 Meat Loaf Bat Out of Hell
#26 Moody Blues Days of Future Passed
#32 Bruce Springsteen Darkness On The Edge Of Town
#33 This House Is Not For Sale Bon Jovi
