I thought I should share a little list of some of my all-time favourite albums. They're not in a specific order, and I'm sure I've missed something but this is a start. They are from quite a range of genres, so even if you don't like the first couple, I'd suggest looking through them all because I really want to share these albums as I think everyone should listen to them! Please enjoy and if you find one you like message me so I can join you in your excitement about the brilliancy of the music! I've included Spotify links (you're welcome)

The Best Of David Bowie 1969/1974 - David Bowie

disney, meeko, and music image
Pocahontas Soundtrack - Alan Menken

Bonus Round

These are albums that I love and want to share with the world, but aren't necessarily my favourite albums of all time

13.

1989, Taylor Swift, and era image
Taylor Swift

Genre: Country/Pop
Ok so I know this isn't just one album but I couldn't choose - I love all six of Taylor's albums. Her earlier albums are nostalgic and sweet, whereas Reputation is chock full of female power and makes me feel invincible (also Swifties will be pleased to see that this is number 13 on the list)

14.

selena gomez, fetish, and selena image
Selena Gomez

Genre: Pop
Again, I couldn't choose a favourite Selena album, so I just put her in as a complete artist. Similar to Taylor, her first albums are much more nostalgic, whilst her later albums are so empowered I love the evolution

15.

scientists, cat, and cats image
With Love And Squalor - We Are Scientists

Genre: Alternative/Indie Rock
If you like Two Door Cinema Club, you'll probably like this although it's a bit harder. There is so much anger in these songs, but it's not aggressive, and actually some of the songs are really sad
Track to highlight: Inaction

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (Original Soundtrack) - Carter Burwell
