Today (16th October) marked National Album Day, a celebration of those mystical, fantastical and downright beautiful albums that changed the course of history and the music industry as we know it.
Nevermind. Abbey Road. Pet Sounds. The Dark Side of the Moon. Back to Black. Let it Bleed. The Bends. Kind of Blue. Are You Experienced.
These are just a few genre-changing, mind-bending evolutions of music projects that were just far too ahead of their times.
In celebration for National Album Day, what will YOU be listening to on repeat today in honour of?

Adele took the first and fifth slots, with 21 and 25 respectively. Amy Winehouse, Madonna and Shania Twain made up the rest of the top five.]
