In the beginning of 2012, I gazed upon the collection of records amassing upon my shelves and realized that I hadn’t listened to a fair amount of them. So I gave myself a challenge: I would listen each one in sequence and write a blog post recording my thoughts. I figured it would take me about a year.

I was wrong.

The Rules

These are completely arbitrary, but I try to keep them as faithfully as I can.

  1. All records must be listened to in order. I can not skip a record because I’m “not in the mood.”
  2. If I purchase a new record from an artist earlier in the alphabet, I have to review that record before moving on to the next album in the queue.
  3. All records must receive a complete listen. No matter how painful.
