Album Reviews


If you are a regular reader, you may have noticed that I haven’t posted a new album review since last year.  When New Years Day arrived, I thought about how I wanted to make my album reviews more interesting and more meaningful.  I came up with the idea that I would listen more and write less.  That is I would listen to lots of albums several times and then write about the ones that moved me the most.

With my focus drawn to reviewing movies, writing my A to Z Challenge posts, and the various distractions of the pandemic and isolation, I’ve ended up not writing a single album review in 2020!  To address that I’ve culled some titles from various “Best of 2020, so far” lists as well as suggestions from friends on social media.  I plan to listen through all these albums and then write and post 1 to 3 album reviews each Friday in June.

If you have any suggestions of any albums I should add to the list, let me know in the comments, and I’ll be sure to give it a listen.
