Buying Advice

For each featured artist, I provide a list of albums worthy of your consideration, along with some explanation of my ratings. These assessments are based on several factors: the quality of the tracks contained on each album; the number of tracks included; plus the overall cohesion of each collection. I only list or provide commentary on albums that I can recommend to at least some degree.

For each album listed, I supply one of the following three ratings.

  • Essential (5 Stars) — These are albums that I believe should be part of every rock music collection.
  • Recommended (4 Stars) — While not essential, these are still albums unquestionably worth owning.
  • Worthy (3 Stars) — Albums to consider purchasing for your favorite artists, or for a really complete collection.
