Well, I went through my albums to make sure I was putting together the most inclusive yet comprehensive list I could. I also made a point not to have more than one album per artist (which is why I put "close second" a few times instead of listing the album separately, for when it was a really hard choice). Also made sure not to include and best of/greatest hits compilations.
