Albums By The Year: 1973

Welcome back to this special retrospective music-posting feature. The gimmick is simple — each week, you post your favorite 25 (or whatever) albums of a given year. We are now moving backwards until we run out of either albums or years.

Prog! This is the year of prog, no question. Just look at all this prog, damn. No Joni Mitchell album this year though, so i’m not going to have much to say about it. Post your 1973s, please
