I was initially going to write out a list of my Top 5 favorites albums but as I began writing out the list, I started thinking of other lists and couldn’t stop going. So I compiled all of the lists here for your reading pleasure. I’m sure some of my picks for movies or albums might raise some eyebrows or shake some heads so if you want to let me know your Top 5 you can send them to me sans postage and handling to aferguson@iafalls.com
