Pick and scale your top 5 artists and attach a recommended album from each. Though your favorite is probably well known do try to add material that may be a little less well known, but essential at the same time. Oh and also add genre just for clean-up purposes. This can be about finding new music from a standpoint time in music history, or this could be another ****ing worship thread, it's really up to you.
