Re: The Most Essential Albums You Need To Own

I only own 10 of them, but for my musical tastes, most of them aren't essential.

Re: The Most Essential Albums You Need To Own

Now zero for me.

"Owning" music is so yesterday...I can stream all of these albums (and almost any other one ever made) any time I want. Having an extensive knowledge of music is becoming the equivalent of a big record collection Music has ascended into the cloud(s) it is no longer a thing to be possessed

If you're talking about spotify, I'd love to know how you can stream Sgt Pepper on that program.

Aren't they still struggling to get the Beatles on there?
