Radio-Active Records' Mikey Ramirez's Top Ten LPs of All Time (sort of)

Sharing your personal musical favorites is an intimate act. It's like getting naked in front of another person. They can see your flaws. They know your predilection for Mariah Carey, which would be like a boil on your bottom. That Kraftwerk love, that's your smooth skin, and the Chris Brown stuff, it's that mole people either love or hate.

We were psyched that for Record Store Day, Radio-Active Records' Mikey Ramirez was willing to tell us his top ten favorite LPs of all time. This is some personal shit! Luckily, Ramirez's picks are a lot cooler than most of ours would be. So, it's musically like Jennifer Aniston getting all in the nude (you may hear yourself saying, "Nice tits!").

There's no order to these picks, and as he said, "Keep in mind, this list is constantly changing." He introduced this list with, "This is almost impossible, but here it goes."
