Tomatrax Long Player Countdown – Part 1 (100 – 91)

Happy new financial year! To celebrate the occasion we will be looking at the Top 100 albums that have stood out for Tomatrax over the past 10 years.

As always there are some rules around what is and isn’t eligible, they are as follows:

* must be at least 35 minutes in duration and/or have at least 9 tracks. It it doesn’t meet either of these, it’s considered to be an EP, and thus would have been considered for the Tomatrax Extended Player Countdown.

* must have been released between 1 January 2010 and 31 December 2019

* no live albums (there will be a Live Long Player Countdown later in the year)

* no compilations (there will also be a Compilations countdown later in the year).

and now onto the list…
