The decade begins

November 30, 2011

If you’re looking for a unique, wildly inventive blog – look further!  I thought I’d join the ‘complete a task within a given timeframe’ fun anyways. 

The vision:
Over the next 10 years,  go through the book, ‘1001 albums you must hear before you die.’

The plan:
1. Accept & move beyond the glaring omissions (no pinkerton? no fully completely?!)

2. Aim for 2 albums/week, multiple listens, as front-to-back as possible, going through the list in no particular order.  In theory.

3. Try to appreciate context of albums & choose standout tracks.

That’s the scheme at least!

This week, I’ll start with a couple that I’m not overly familiar with but usually appear on all-time-best-album lists:

What’s going on, Marvin Gaye
The Velvet Underground & Nico, The Velvet Underground

Enjoy!
