If you were thinking you'd get to stream all of Paramore's new self-titled album in one sitting this coming Monday, think again. The band will be premiering the album over the course of four nights on its website. Four sides in four nights - starting this Monday. The band explains the details in a video in the replies.
A note on how we made the list: Albums got docked points if the artist went on to far greater achievements (which is why Please, Please Me and Greetings from Asbury Park, great as they are, didn't made the top ten); conversely, we gave a little extra recognition to great debut albums that the artist never matched (hello, Is This It and Illmatic!).
