What is Recorded Music's Greatest Year?
The last few months in store has involved some heated debate brought about by listening to Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list. Lists like this are highly subjective and when it comes down to it quite trivial, but listening to it has never the less sparked plenty of conversation about a wide range of different things. It also got us thinking about what was music's greatest year for album releases?
