COMPETITION: Rec me classic albums.

Seeing as I start field work for real in a week and I’ll be doing that for the coming 12 weeks I need stuff to jam. The rules of this competition are simple. Rec me classic albums I have yet to rate, both in the sense of albums that are generally considered classics as well as personal classics (i.e. Sgt Peppers is as good of an entry as your dads cover band or whatever as long as I’ll be able to find the on the internet). Rec 3 albums per person and I’ll rate them accordingly and update this list continuously. The person with the highest overall total score of his or hers 3 recs win a price consisting of a physical release of our new album as well as a pack of great tasting Swedish treats. Disclaimer: in case of a draw we’ll have a knock out round. If you don’t want to participate in this magical happening you can just rec me good shit and I’ll be satisfied with that. Admissions close Friday the 9th! List is eternal 5’s. Also check back soon for Snay -17. Hype!
