There's a book out there that I've had on my shelf for years but never really touched. It's the "1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die". They start with Frank Sinatra's "In The Wee Small Hours" from 1955 and go all the way up to 2007. (List is over here!)
So here's the plan. 1001 Albums. 1001 Days. I'll listen to the whole album, start to finish, no skipping. I'll write about how I feel about the album, my thoughts about the music, my life, etc. We'll see how this goes..
OK, I have a jaded view of music because I played some of these albums on radio until the vinyl fell apart. So let me say I find it refreshing to revisit them as heard through the ears of a 25-year-old newbie music critic. Maybe you will, too, or maybe you'll find something new you'd like to listen to. Liz plans to be through the list of albums by May of 2012, and has reviewed 520 albums so far. Link
