rs-14771-jd-1800-1395342288

Goal is to listen to 1500 different albums in a 12 month period.

LISTENED TO TODAY 8 ALBUMS. TOTAL LISTENED TO IN 7 DAYS- 50 ALBUMS.

  • PINK FLOYD: ANIMALS: 1977. 3 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. I am not a fan of progressive rock but Pink Floyd is alright. This album always makes me think of my first roommate in college, during his two months of college before his dad came on evening and packed his bags and took him home {he rarely bothered to go to class} he listened to this album at least a couple times a day.
  • THE BANGLES: DIFFERENT LIGHT: 1986. 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. Four hits on this album including the #1 hit “Walk Like An Egyptian”, and the Prince written ‘Manic Monday” which made it to #2. Their next album was so-so and that was it. This is an enjoyable album though- my favorite song on it the Alex Chilton- Big Star tune “September Gurls.”
  • THE KINKS: GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT: 1981. 3 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. I love The Kinks. This album though is hit and miss. Best song “Better Days.” The Kinks were near the end at this point. Again, an uneven album.
  • THE BEATLES: WITH THE BEATLES: 1963. 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. Released on November 22, 1963 in the U.K.
  • U2: POP: 1997. 2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. U2 is one of my favorite bands but I didn’t like this album very much when it came out and twenty years later it still hasn’t grown on me.
  • ORNETTE COLEMAN: KEN BURNS JAZZ: 2000- 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS.
  • BENNY GOODMAN: KEN BURNS JAZZ: 2000. 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS.
  • JOY DIVISION: SUBSTANCE: 1977-80. 1988. 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. Career overview of the late Ian Curtis and Joy Division. Only released two albums and in the U.S. were one of those groups at the time you read about but their albums weren’t even released at the time here. Influential band.
