So first you grab the covers of your favourite music albums.
Then you put them in a square grid (3x3 at the smallest, 5x5 at the largest).
Then you post here, with a guide at the bottom as to what's what.
PROFIT!

Don't worry about making them look pretty or anything, you can just slap them all side by side with a plain background if you want--we just REALLY want to see what music is essential to yo soul, baby.

My grid's just 3x3. I couldn't find enough complete albums that I could say define me. I've got lots and lots of individual tracks that mean a lot to me, rather than albums. (Unless I include my classical music, much of which is still on old vinyl LPs, and the album art from those recordings wouldn't be available online.)
