Your zeal is admirable, Monte, but please don't feel the need to take the time and effort to post links to album reviews to prove a source's eligibility. We trust each other here!

If I do add this list, I will probably include only the 40 "pop" albums. That way I can enter it as a ranked list (i.e., the top ten followed by 30 honorable mentions). I reserve the right to make my own work as complication-free as possible.
