    Here is part 2 of my introduction to rock series
    This is not any step by step learning process as such.
    Assuming that you are already a rock music listener, this is just a list of my favourite albums listed in alphabetical order.
    Again I have missed out some good artistes and some good albums, but this list is just from the back on my head.
    so maybe people can add on to this.
    I have intentionally left out some real cult albums, which i think is foolish to add since everyone would have already heard it

    A request to all IGTians
    If at all you do wish to add some albums, please include albums before 1990.
    I would want to keep this thread away from Death, Trash, Nu, and other sorts of metal forms.

    Thank you
