I’m off down the beach but looking forward to jumping back into this thread later to see all the massive beefs you’re all gonna have with this list and one another. :grinning::+1::wink:

Conor Oberst might well have five across Bright Eyes and Desaparecidos, but probably that doesn’t count.

Would Conor Oberst count? I reckon there was at least four Bright Eyes albums (Fevers, Lifted, Wide Awake, Digital Ash) plus Desaparecidos and solo stuff.

No way Benji is that low?? Damn has he become such a meme that everyone has abandoned his masterpiece album. And I was sure I saw Smoke Ring for my Halo pretty often … funny how you can just see what you want to.

Also yay Transatlanticism made it, only as a token entry

Ghosts of the Great Highway and April >>>>>>>>>>> Benji
