Welcome to our album-by-album roundup of what we think are some of the most pivotal albums in music production history. Over the course of last year we analysed a variety of records from numerous different genres and eras, looking at their creative inception, approach to production, use of music technology and the resulting impact on popular culture and the development of music making.
