Ulitmate-guitar.com has released another of their weekly questions. This week their topic is the Top 25 Collaboration Albums, and in typical fashion, Mike Patton shows up twice.
Each week Ultimate-guitar.com has a Wednesday Question. This week they asked, “What’s the greatest collaboration album of all time?”.
In addition, there were two specific clauses required to meet their definition of a collaboration album:
(1) The albums should be released under the name of “Artist 1 &/with Artist 2” on the cover – so two or more separate artists.
