NEW MUSIC LISTENING PROJECT- TO LISTEN TO EVERY ALBUM FROM- “1001 ALBUMS YOU MUST HEAR BEFORE YOU DIE”

1001albums.jpg

The book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die first came out in 2005, it has been updated a few times over the years the most recent in 2016.. Yesterday it occurred to me- since I am always listening to albums anyway- why not start a project with the goal- to listen to all 1001 they have listed?ย  I am going to start at the beginning but it isn’t going to be my daily listening list- if I knock one or two off a day that is fine. Also there will be some albums I listen to out of order because it is something I am listening to without checking if its on the list or not- so I will check those albums off as I go along. I am going back to January 1, 2019 as the beginning point. I am hoping to get the list done in two years. So far from January 1 to today I have heard a total of 66 so far this month. A pretty good start.

below is a link to the entire list.

  1. Oh my goodness that’s a great project! And you’ve already heard 66 of them since January? You’re on a roll, Hans! I’m impressed with your initiative! Thank you for including the list ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hopefully I will stick with it. Interesting list- in glancing at it I don’t agree with some of the picks and some that are left off- but that’s how it goes with lists!

    • You have what it takes — a love for music and being extremely reliable — to stick with it. Yes, I hear you on lists, it’s all to the subjective preferences of the list-maker(s), and invariably there will be disagreement….

    • I am sure they want to include all styles on music on that list too… there are a lot i am unfamiliar with- so maybe i will find some gems!
