History of AOTY-core

(Inspired by DoubleZ's fantastic "The history of the albums")

Trying to rate all the albums AOTY users love in chronological order.

Rules:
1. Every album on here is listed in chronological order to the best of my ability
2. but if an album's specific date cannot be found, it will be put on here as if it came out on January 1 of that year, or the first of the month that is listed.
3. To enter the list, an album has to have at least 100 user ratings,
4. and have an average user score of 80 or higher
5. No albums from after 2011.
6. At the start of 2022, I'll update the list with albums from 2012, then 2013 in 2023 and so on.
7. EPs are included as long as they meet the criteria.

Obviously, users are always rating albums from all time periods, so there will be albums that cross the threshold to be included on this list after I've already made it. I'll do my best to keep up on those albums and update the list as needed, but please comment if there are specific ones I've missed.

This will take me literal years if I stick with it, so please be patient!

Aight, just got done listening to every 60's album on this list! I wanted to take a bit of a break from rating stuff so I figured I'd listen to as much stuff as I could so I'd have more context for figuring out how I feel about all of them. Expect reviews to start again soon!
