Some Albums

Dear Reader,

I’m going to do something different today. I want to share with you some of my musical tastes. Now I listen to a fair amount of music, and I listen to a rather broad array of stylings but one thing is for sure, I really do love albums. And I love listening through the whole thing to get the full experience whether that was the intention or even if it really was just a collection of songs that the band threw onto a vinyl or cd or whatever. So this is a list that recounts my favorite albums as completely self-contained things. Some of these bands I’ve only listened to the mentioned album and some of my favorite bands don’t make an appearance. The order doesn’t really mean anything past the first 3 honestly. It’s just kind of in the order of how I remembered them. I was trying to do a 10 album list but it turned into a 25 album list which turned into a 50 album list. So you should really just think of this as 50 albums I really love, in no particular order.
