334 (33%).

There are quite a few albums on that list I'd happily avoid for the rest of my life though.

Let's say you're given a terminal diagnosis and dedicate your last 6 months to working through this list. You listen to everything other than Robbie Williams' Life through a lens and have a couple of days left.

Do you actually do it?

Absolutely not. I reckon there are hundreds of better albums elsewhere. Probably thousands.

Hey, any album with Angels, Let Me Entertain You, Old Before I Die and Lazy Days on it deserves a quick rotation.

253 or 25%. Always great to see bands such as RFTC, Mudhoney and Dinosaur Jr in these lists.

If counting criteria only for full album heard i just got 34 out of 1001. :lol: I know almost of that list but rarely last on full album. Listen to single track or two always my kind of thing.

Surprised how much 80s/90s stuff I've not listened to properly.

The day I listen to a Robbie Williams album is the day I welcome death.

Do I have to have listened to each album start to finish, or if I reckon I've heard most of the songs on an albumn can I tick it off?

Only 80. Surprised at how few modern ones I'd heard, actually.

There's a few in there that I know I really should listen to. I'm tempted to try and go through the list, actually, because I obviously need to expand my horizons.

451. Working in record shops really helped. A lot of shite in amongst those too. There were some odd inclusions in the list as well as some glaring omissions given some of the stuff that was of a similar nature in there.

Marvin Gaye's 'Hear, My Dear' is a terrible record, interesting because of the story behind it, but not a good listen at all!

Page loading very sloooooow when i go to next page.
Currently on page 15, and have 1% :lol:
I never listen to old albums, they sound shit.

And i am also only marking the ones where i heard the whole album, not only a few songs on the radio.

I’d say 12% i’ve listened to all the way though and probably at least double that for albums i’ve only heard some of the tracks.

44/1001 4% :lol:

Probably heard songs from half of them, but not listened to the full album.
The other half i haven't even heard of.

Some weird picks on there aswell. Some of my favourite bands' albums aren't even the best ones (from when i had 'favourite bands').
Slipknot - Iowa - is considered their best album, but this site only had their first, self titled, album on there.
Pantera - Cowboys from hell - Their first, and most important, album. Probably rated 2nd of their albums, but my favourite.
Korn's first album should be on there aswell, not only "Freak on a leash".

Guess these polls/tests aren't suited for us metal heads :)

I found the metal choices very strange too...

Got 194 in all, pretty much all the rock/metal.

Watched a documentary recently about Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen, listened to Never Mind the Bollocks after, still an absolutely amazing album.

Yes. All old albums sound like shit. I don't know why they don't just destroy all music recorded before 2003.

We can pretend i said that, if it makes you feel better.

I have heard most Beatles songs, but no clue what albums they are on, or if i have listened to all songs on any of their albums, so i don't select them.
Same with Lenny Kravitz, Def Leppard, Pink Floyd, Sabbath, etc, but never listened to their full albums, and i don't like any of them enough to bother doing so.

Dunno about the others, but Pink Floyd as an actual *whole* album experience quite work. Especially their 70s albums (ANIMALS!)...even for the metalheads. Try it!

It really is. Hard to believe it's 42 years old...

You like Slipknot, korn and others and have never listened to a full Sabbath album? Weird.

I'm just happy Taylor Swift finally made the list.
