Tops 10

Classer c’est bien. Lister aussi. Classer des listes, faire des greatest-best-of c’est un mode de pensée. Bienvenu au royaume du choix et du renoncement. Parce qu’on le sait bien, 5 ou 10, ce n’est jamais assez.

Cet « à peu près Top 100 » est une visite guidée historique des incontournables du hard rock et du metal, une « notice », un ensemble de repères. Il ne s’agit pas de choix personnels mais d’un ensemble de disques qui dressent le portrait de quasi 50 ans de hard / metal.
Un seul album par groupe (sauf rares exceptions, certains groupes ayant des phases très différentes dans leur carrière) et écarté les lives (une exception pour Scorpions).
Une réserve : les styles / groupes les plus récents ne sont pas forcément bien représentés pour des raisons de recul difficile à prendre et parfois d’une manque de maîtrise des styles.
