As I go through this list, I realise how many albums / bands that are properly good that I have ignored or avoided for so long. This is ridiculous and I am glad I am doing this exercise.
It is shocking, in retrospect, how a young mind can decide something "isn't for them" simply based on (perhaps) who listens to them (aunts? men? wallies?) or how they are talking about. Fleetwood Mac is another classic case. I have never listened to them (and much like Amy Winehouse, it seems from my FB feedback that it;s another album that everyone in the world knows except me).
