Albums I’ve Listened To/Enjoyed From Rolling Stone’s Top 500 Albums of All Time List

What follows is a list of albums I’ve listened to and or owned/enjoyed from the list of Rolling Stone magazine’s 2012 (not the recently revised 2020 list) list of 500 greatest albums of all time list. Albums I owned or otherwise listened to/enjoyed before embarking on the “list challenge” are indicated in bold. This list will be periodically updated each time I listen to a “new” album from that list. I’m taking a look at both the 2012 list and the 2020 list, so I’m not putting albums in any “order.” What is NOT included are albums I didn’t finish listening to (for whatever reason)
