Hollandude 100

The Hollandude 100 are 100 albums I like… a lot.

NOTE: Many artists on this list deserve more than one album on this list.  However, by following a One and Done policy, space is created for more idiosyncratic selections.  By including Animals by Pink Floyd, I’m saying if you put a gun to my head, I’d take that over Dark Side of The Moon… and not necessarily because it’s a better album but because it’s a more compelling to me now all things (frequency of exposure, etc) considered.  No box sets except Nuggets which I couldn’t resist.  Otherwise limited to 2 album/cd compilations.

List is for entertainment purposes only.  No gambling!
