Para el número especial conmemorativo del 30 aniversario de la revista Rockdelux, desde redacción nos pidieron nuestros 50 álbumes más relevantes durante su singladura para confeccionar una lista más amplia. Y esto fue lo que envié el verano pasado. Lo publico hoy, con la revista ya en la calle, para dejar constancia de mi aportación, tan personal e intransferible cuando la confeccioné entonces como posiblemente caduca al día siguiente.
