The Aural Retentive Challenge For 2016 – 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die!

So… Cindy bought this book for me several years ago.

I have glanced through it many times. It’s really very interesting, particularly the early part of the book that covers albums I have not much familiarity with. There is a short review with some interesting facts and usually a picture of the album and/or track listing.

It goes from the 1950’s up through 2005, an admittedly not exactly current tome, but a place to start.

I am going to listen to them all.

Some I own, some I know of, some I never heard of before, but I am guessing they are mostly all available on Spotify, which will make this challenge a possibility. It should be a great way to investigate some new stuff and hear some old favorites.

I’ll rate each on a scale of 1 thru 5. Those that are a 1 I will likely never listen to again and 5’s are mystical religious experiences.

For those of you calculating… that is about 2.73 albums a day for a full year. Leap Day included.

Who’s with me!!
