I've got a thing for this! :p

https://www.last.fm/user/clearyss/libra ... 2017-06-01

Here's my last 4 years of Spotify:
1 Takuya Kuroda — Rising Son
2 The Process: Jon Batiste / Chad Smith / Bill Laswell — The Process
3 Esperanza Spalding — Radio Music Society
4 Jeff Bradshaw — Home: One Special Night At the Kimmel Center
5 José James — No Beginning No End
6 Derrick Hodge — Live Today
7 Robert Glasper — Mood
8 Raphael Saadiq — Stone Rollin'
9 John Patitucci — Brooklyn (feat. John Patitucci Electric Guitar Quartet)
10 D'Angelo — Black Messiah

This contrasts really heavily with my teenage years, which was basically Seattle grunge central, and Deftones :p

Most of this was between the ages of 10-20 as I don't listen to as much music anymore, and I don't listen to the same albums over and over like I used to.
Also, what cassettes I had in the car at the time had a say in this list :)

Pavement - Brighten the Corners
Built to Spill - Live
Tool - Aenima
Belle and Sebastian - Tigermilk
Rolling Stones - Exile on Main St
Beatles - Abbey Rd
Sonic Youth - Goo
Nirvana - Nevermind
Radiohead - ok Computer
You am I - Hi Fi Way

Most played for me is from when I was young and only had access to a limited amount, thus they got more action. Still I stand by this list.

1. Beatles - Sgt Pepper
Given to me on vinyl by an older cousin as he was getting into tapes and CDs and we still had a record player... :)

2. Queen - Greatest Hits (Japanese version)
First CD in the house when they were brand new things

3. Queen - Greatest Hits 2
Second CD in the house :)

4. Beatles - Rubber Soul
Mine and my Mum's fav Beatles album

5. You Am I - Sound as Ever
First CD I bought

6. You Am I - Hi Fi Way
Second CD I bought

7. You Am I - Hourly Daily
A classic

8. Big Star - #1 Record/Radio City
Found digging into YAI influences

9. Cake - Fashion Nugget
Not sure there were many days of high school where I didn't listen to this at least once

10. Bluebottle Kiss - Revenge is Slow
A cracker I still listen to regularly

Geez I have good taste! Some other artists in there I would have listened to more but their catalogue is more varied so not so much focus on a single album, more the entire spectrum, such as the Rolling Stones, Radiohead, Queens of the Stone Age, The Posies, Ryan Adams, Screamfeeder, Ween, Velvet Underground, Television, Teenage Fanclub, Supergrass all as honourable mentions.

+1 on tough gig. This is my best guess, in no particular order -

1. Led Zep 1
2. Led Zep 4
3. Who's Next
4. Abraxas (Santana)
5. Volcanic Rock (Buffalo)
6. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (Elton)
7. High Voltage (ACDC)
8. Wish You Were Here
9. Marquee Moon (Television)
10. Black & Blue (Rolling Stones)

just missing the list were the first 4 or 5 Beatles albums, half a dozen Dylan albums, Machinehead (DP), Electric Ladyland (Hendrix), the rest of the Led Zep catalog, and 20 Beat Classics (Georgie Fame)
