Hey everyone. A year ago or so, I stumbled across a book called, “1,001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.” I’m sure you’re all familiar with that sort of tome. Anyway, more often than not, I just brush off books like that because, well, I have my own opinions and they’re usually pretty thorough. So, who needs 1,001 strangers’ opinions, right? Well, as most of you reading this will already know, I’m a fucking music freak, and I got curious what these various people deem worthy of my attention.
After delving in a little, I did notice that the people writing the book were reputable, so I decided to delve in myself. After a long while, I acquired all of the 1,001 albums, and I set up this little project for myself. I know a few other people have done the same: listened to each album on the list and provided their own reviews and such. I’m going to go a little further and add my own recommendations of albums you should hear before you shuffle off this mortal fuckin’ coil. Believe me, there’s a LOT of great stuff out there. There’s no way they could cram it all into one physical book, lest it end up like the IRS tax code book. 😛
If you’d like to hear any of these albums, just private message me on facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/0m1ss10n, and I’ll point you in the right direction. You’re all strongly encouraged to listen along and develop your own opinion(s). Hope you enjoy this project as much as I do. 🙂
