This is a list of albums I am most enjoying this month. It can also indicate which albums are most likely to move up or be added onto my "GREATEST ALBUMS OF ALL TIME LIST", especially if the album stays on this list for a long period of time. I'll be updating it as much as necessary throughout each month. Anything that shows up on this list is highly recommended, even if it were a new album that only lasted a day. To even have a chance at this list, the album must already be outstanding. Anything less will not catch my attention enough to be worthy of addition.

Numbers to the right indicate how many times I've listened to the album this month. The number following that is how many times I've listened to it in my lifetime so far (usually an approximation, but close in its accuracy).
