In the US #1 singles, this came up for discussion that there'd be interest in an album thread similar to the US and UK #1 singles. I think merging the US and UK together helps paint a broader picture of music from any given era instead of one territory or another where you have albums like Thriller, Rumours, Saturday Night Fever, Purple Rain, The Bodyguard and 21 amongst others that stay at the top for a good half year, if not longer. Why 1970? I know this will be a source of contention, but I think it's a good starting place because in the 60s for every Beatles album that might get 20-30 pages alone, there are tons of easy listening and original cast albums that might get the chirping of crickets. 1970 is a good starting place and most of the greats from the 60s will still show up. Albums will be covered when they reach their first peak.... Rumours for example reached #1 in the US nine months prior to its UK peak, so the US peak is when we cover it.
