Due to public demand (well, several people have asked), here's an ongoing list of the albums that reach the hallowed heights of four Ts and above, irrespective of their * rating. As you can see, they're arranged by their T rating, with their * rating noted. I could've made all the artist names links to the review, but I couldn't be arsed.

I've removed the entries for standalone singles (always rather shaky ground), as it's impossible to compare one track's 'Tronworthiness to an album's. Bootlegs have also gone, as there seems little point in listing something you may never be able to hear.
