Gimme Top 5

The concept of this section is very simple: every Wednesday (or so), Still in Rock proposes to list a few “top 5”: the best songs of an artist, the best albums of a label, the best albums of a musical genre and so on…. One day, we’ll even make the top five of these top five, I promise. The exercise is necessarily subjective but it compensates with one of its qualities: to titillate all those who think that lists are useless. Whether you like it or not, the amount of information available on the Internet is endless, so let’s try to put some order into it. Enjoy reading my friends!
