it sounds like an incredibly ignorant thing to say - and probably is - but im of an age where all my bowie, hendrix, dylan, led zep etc is on compilation albums and i have never felt the need to dig any deeper.
also having piper at the gates of dawn as the one pink floyd entry is just trying too hard to be cool.
I have 14, though to be honest my "Remain in Light" was bought on cassette last year in a charity shop because it was 20p, and it doesn't play properly.
How many of those 14 I actually like, is a different matter. Most of them were bought "after the fact" because it seemed that everyone was going on about how essential they are and how no indie kid should be without such classics.
I am happy to say that I fell for rubbish like Screamadelica neither first time round nor during its multiple revivals and reassessments!

Never mind Oasis, there's actually some albums on there that are really great, but didn't "influence" much (although maybe this is someone's list of albums that influenced them as a person rather than influencing other music?)

Considering most of them weren't commercial pop records does that mean you own loads of Stock Aitken Waterman or that you're an alternative music snob? ;-)

Don't worry, that Smashing Pumpkins bollocks that has 2 good songs buried in 2 whole CDs of quagmire, is in there...
Not for me. There is a default ticked box "share my activity on my Facebook timeline", deselect that and you can just scroll the list, tick the ones you own and it keeps count and gives you option at the end to "share" your result on Facebook. I did it this way.
