The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything is....42 Favourite Albums
There is a thing going round on social media to share your 42 favourite albums, using https://www.neverendingchartrendering.org - you can search and drag your favourite albums' covers to create a "topster" image.
I am really enjoying seeing other people's lists. And I am certain that by the time I finish writing this, I will have remembered ten albums I have forgotten and kick myself, but here's mine.
If you are interested in doing this, please do share on twitter and tag me (@backinblackh)!
