1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

If you’d like to follow along or am curious when I’ll get to your favorite album, check out my full list.

My scoring system is based off of the other albums in the list and largely around how much I enjoyed listening to them. A 3 star rating is essentially me saying, ‘listen to this if you want’. From there, a higher or lower score suggests my level of encouragement or discouragement.
