Back in August of last year, I was in Books-A-Million, looking for some inspirational books to read in my spare time.   In my search, I ended up in the “Music” section where I came across this book entitled, “25 Albums That Rocked The World”.   It was, essentially, the publication’s, Omnibus Press, opinion on the 25 most culturally influenced albums ever created, with a detailed summary of  each album and its impact.
