Hottest 100 Australian Albums Of All Time: 81-100

Music is a subjective thing. That’s why there is no overarching, all powerful body that can make finite judgments over a song or album’s worth. Instead, we quantify such things using public voting systems – such as triple j‘s temperature-themed listicles, the most recent of which is dedicated to uncovering the Hottest 100 Australian Albums Of All Time. Have you voted? If so that means you somehow contributed to the albums that were ranked from #80 to #100 which have been revealed. And if you didn’t vote, that’s okay because it gives you license to shit on the list without feeling any guilt.

I guess the disclaimer we all have to keep in mind is that the results invariably serve as a demographic breakdown of Triple J’s core audience which, while mixed, is listeners between the ages of 18 and 30.
