Kriterier: Der det finnes ulike UK- og US-utgivelser, har jeg valgt de versjonene som ble utgitt i artistens/bandets hjemland for nummerering (for eksempel gjelder dette The Beatles og The Rolling Stones). Samlealbum, mini-album, 10-inch-album, EP’er, remix-album og annet snusk er ikke tatt med i utregningen (det er derimot livealbum og soundtracks).
