All-Time:Les 100 meilleurs albums de rock (2010)

Hello, it's me again. It didn't expect to come back that soon, but today, I found a cheap little book called "Les 100 meilleurs albums de rock" in a nearby store and since it was really cheap (2.90€) I couldn't help but buy it. The author is called Nicolas Dupuy, he created two blogs: Crosstown Traffic, mythes, anecdotes et fabulations rock'n'rollesques" and "Are you experienced? encyclopédie rock'n'rollesque interactive irraisonnée". But, more importantly, he is the author of the french edition of "Rock for Dummies".

The list is made of 100 albums plus 2 albums for each (in a section called "Encore plus?" which means "Want more?", similar to the "Ca devrait vous plaire" sections in the previous book I gave you the list), taking the whole list to 300 (in fact, I think it's 299 because of an overlap I seem to remember).

Here's the list:

Re: All-Time:Les 100 meilleurs albums de rock (2010)

I like these picks, especially the "encore plus" section, which highlights a lot of albums I've never heard of that seem interesting. I've gotta say though...strange picks for the 2000s. I'm all for being different, but it seems like this writer knows a lot more about 70s rock than he does 00s rock.
