During the second half of 2015, I will be listening to and writing about some of the best Singer-Songwriter albums of all time.  This list was released by Uncut Magazine back in December of 2013.  I wanted to go through this list (in addition to the greatest albums of all time) to get a deeper sense of how singer-songwriter albums differ from albums in general.  Only 3 of these albums were also on the greatest albums list.
