The Current's 893 Essential Albums

The Current realized a dream this year, a dream to compile a definitive list of the 893 most essential albums of all time. From March 23 - April 17, nearly 8,000 listeners, readers and members of The Current submitted their top ten most essential albums. We consolidated the lists, and from May 5 - 12, we counted down the 893 Essential albums. We couldn't have done this without you, seriously.
