The challenge: To broaden my musical horizons by listening to a different album every working day that I wouldn’t normally consider…
I’ll start off by pointing out that this is a shameless almost rip-off of an idea my friend Ash had. (You can see his posts and challenge over at Hooded Badger) The challenge: To broaden my musical horizons by listening to a different album every working day that I wouldn’t normally consider… You know not from that finite number of bands we all like or those played on our favourite radio stations.
I’ve decided to add my own twist on to the challenge as at the start of the year, whilst resorting my music collection I realised that quite a number of my favourite albums have just turned 15 this year. Hybrid Theory, Infest, Razorblade Romance, The Sickness, Conspiracy of One to name but a few. Thats made me feel a bit old. so my plan now is to explore each week in musical history. I’ll pick the big bands or albums released for each week and give it a listen then review. I’m probably going to make sure each album is over a decade old and try to consider things I normally probably wouldn’t.
As I’ve started almost a month late, I’m going to try and fill the gaps when I get time. Keep watching guys.
