Guib's Essentials (Alphabetical Order)


Well, this is a very simple list and something you've probably seen a lot of other MS users do in the past. Basically, I'm just going to list the albums I wouldn't live without, my all time gems. There's no particular ''Genre'' that I'll be covering and I will also try to limit myself to one album per band and up to 3 favorite tracks (even though all the albums there have no bad tracks IMO, of course some exceptions may apply). Of course this is just an ''opinion'' list, meaning that I'm not saying these albums are all masterpieces or whatnot, it's just my personal favorites. I hope you'll agree with me and if not well, doesn't matter... Oh Also I'm only adding MS featured albums.

P.S. I will not take suggestions for this list and it is very unlikely that you will make me change anything on there, but we can still discuss after all.
(Though it is highly possible that I change my mind on my own... I'm like that.)
