A friend of mine recently took every album he owned and narrowed it down to his favourite 30 albums. Intrigued by this I decided I was going to do the same. It was much harder than I originally thought it would be. But after a few weeks of scrutiny I had my list. Not that anyone may care or even read this, but I have been a huge music fan my entire life, and if I can get even one person into a new album... it will be well worth it.
So every day for the next 30 I am going to make a post on here about an album I love. It may not be the most articulate, well written posts but hey, I'm just an average guy with a crappy job, and a love of music. So before my first entry tomorrow I made a few rules for my list that I'll make noted here so you can see my process.
First: No band could appear twice. Blink 182 is my favourite band I could have put 3 or 4 Blink 182 albums on here and been happy. But honestly I think that would make a list boring, so 30 different bands and 30 different albums.
Second: No albums could have come out this year. To me music is something that takes time to digest and whether I'll go back to an album, a year or years later and still love it, has a ton to do with an album being great. Even though some albums that have come out this year are great and could have future potential to make this list for now this is my top 30.
Third: I had to love every song on the album. Sometimes you get a new album and love it, but you find yourself skipping that one song that is kind of filler or that just doesn't mesh with the rest album in your eyes. I wanted to make sure that every song knocked it out of the park (I hate baseball but can still use that phrase, no?), but in each post I will still pick a favourite song per album.
So that's all I've got, if you have an opinion or comment please feel free to share. First album will be posted tomorrow and they are in no particular order. Hope you enjoy.
