(In alphabetical order.  Note: I’ve combined Radiohead’s Kid A and Amnesiac due to their studio relationship.  An asterisk [*] indicates that an album is shared between Greg’s Top 50 Albums list and mine.)

    I love your stats. And I love our shared taste. And I love that there are more bands I need to discover/rediscover due to your list!
