In 2014, I listened to (and wrote about) Rolling Stone's Top 100 Albums of All Time.  Early in that project, I discovered the Acclaimed Music list (which is widely revered as the list).  Once I started comparing the lists, I saw how many albums on the Acclaimed list that I hadn't covered from the Rolling Stone list.  In the first half of 2015, I will cover those additional albums.  In the second half, I will cover the Top 50 Singer-Songwriter Albums (list here).
