It's a pretty diverse list. There's pop, country rock, indie, ambient, hip hop, speed metal, shoe gaze, art rock, post rock and more.

The albums from this list that have really stayed with me and begged multiple plays are from Haim, Boards of Canada, Justin Timberlake, Kanye West, Julia Holter and Daft Punk.

Are any of these likely to make the all time top 100? My pick of the most likely to succeed are Yeejus and Random Access Memories.
