    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.

    Sorry I've been trying to get into Devin Townsend for weeks. I'll do Griffin's review tonight or tomorrow.
