The Journey of 1001 Miles Starts With a Single Step

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.  🙂
