New Year’s Resolution: One Disc a Day

Published by under Disc a Day,MP3's

This year I have come up with a New Year’s resolution that will hopefully be somewhat reasonable and fun. Every day I will listen to an album, any album, from any genre or time period. I want to expand my musical repertoire in a more systematic way. I already listen to music as often as possible during the day and I’m always in search for new music, but I would like to set aside one album whether it be an EP or LP (depending on time) and give it a good listen all the way through.
The beginning of the year is a good time to look at all the “best of” lists for 2007 to find out what I missed out on.

There will be no planned theme for any of the albums. The only kind of plan I can imagine would be a string of a certain genre or even multiple albums from the same artist, but that will just all be based on how I feel and what I want to listen to.

I will post every week with the albums I’ve listened to with MP3s of some of my favorite tracks off the album.

If anybody recommends an album that they think I should listen to, just leave a comment and I will do the best I can to listen to the album.

Wish me luck!
