    Listen To A New Album Each Week... who's in?

    Hello all - a suggestion for us.

    In a bid to widen my current and quite set music taste, I saw a good idea on another forum that we could incorporate here. We had something similar on here but it was with recommending all types of entertainment to each other IIRC, whereas if we keep it to music only and do it as a group (especially nowadays with every man and his dog having access to music streaming platforms now, it could be fun to do).

    So every Wednesday, we create a new thread, picking an album for everyone else to listen to that's available on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube etc, giving reasons why you chose the album, and then the rest of us give it a listen throughout the week and then comment on it in the thread. Turn-based, we can do a draw of the turns etc. Could be interesting as I remember @Simon throwing a Nas album at me that I loved which I'd never played before (for example). Best thing he's ever done.

    If we get an initial 6-8 people at least, then we can start it, and I will happily not go first too.

    There could be any reason for you choosing an album - it could be one you hold dear to your heart that's popular, a relatively unknown album by a band/artist you love, an underrated classic in your eyes... anything.

    What's an hour out of your week trying something new?

    Who's in?

    Sure, why not?

    I am always willing to broaden my music horizons.

    The first draft pick has been told that he/she is up first, and will be posting a new thread soon.

    Really looking forward to this now

    Be interesting to see, after everyone has picked if we could all collectively agree on just one song from all the albums that we all liked.

    Are we going to keep going after the first round for everyone? I’d love if we did a theme round where everyone has to pick an album from a particular genre. Be fun to see people stretch what they normally listen to.

    Considering joining the 21st century and paying for a streaming service. Would love to get involved in all of this. Such a good range of choices picked so far.

    Rosk what are you on about with your weird criteria? So do we have to make a post in this thread and then all the other thread and then jump 3 times and then we get to go?

    I've decided that we should have a break for Week 11 and give everyone a chance to catch up. Only 9 replies on the last thread (including myself) and with a few people on holidays we should all aim to catch up on the last few weeks before starting a new album next Wednesday.

    Personally that would be great. I'm a couple (maybe 3) behind after being away for a week and struggling to find time to listen.

    I had just assumed we'd be listening to the album all together next week

    But yes that does sound like a good idea to take a bit of a break.

    Done.

    For the first time ever I am going to say who is coming next.

    It’s The Beer Monster. Get ready to let him have it.

    It's just going to be a recording of a pure 440 Hz tone because anything else is too experimental music.

    I need to know if this is worth my effort continuing, as the replies aren't really happening now and some of you who have put forward albums have decided not to then review people's albums once yours is done. It would be a bit of a shame if this died out, as it was a really interesting run for the first 8 weeks, but only 3 people have responded to The Beer Monster's album 10 days ago and I'm struggling to see how it will suddenly get a load of responses before Wednesday this week.

    I'm still keen. I just don't really have anything TBMesque to say about a covers band who plays a tuba over popular music.

    Sorry guys, my life's been ridiculously hectic and the thought of spending an hour listening and reflecting to a new album has kicked up my anxiety at times.

    I've finally, finally started Uni, so I've had the pressure, time and mental, of that. We've also had the young baby express pass through our house last week, which while wonderful, almost killed me.

    Things are starting to quieten down now, and the thought of catching up isn't tightening my throat as it was, so I'd hope to start catching up over the next few days, though it probably won't be as detailed as I previously was as I'll be listening while working.

    How many people are left to go?

    Maybe plough on and let everyone have their go and then come back and see if there is an appetite for a second round in the new year?
    It would be really annoying not to get a pick at this stage, and I promise you will get feedback from at least me on all of them. It probably won’t be positive, but it will be feedback.

    Ugh so sorry! My life has gotten busier - in school and now classes are 2:30-10:30pm. But I'd like to continue. I can listen to the current album this weekend and review!

    Maybe for round 2 switch it to mixtapes?

    12 songs on a playlist or whatever. Gives people a chance to show some diverse taste etc?

    I have enjoyed it so far, have a got a new song or two off most of the entries and revisited some classics.

    I really like the idea of mix tapes. I’d do 10 tracks, side A and B, 5 on each side as a structure.
