That’s 1031 albums listened to
and I’m still alive
It took a bit longer than I expected, but I have finished listening to all of the 1001 albums you’re supposed to listen to before you die.
In the end I listened to 1031 albums, mainly because the first list I started working through was inaccurate and then out of date; later, I worked with something more authoritative and made sure I checked each album off.
The best thing about this pointless exercise was making new discoveries of great albums I hadn’t heard before, but found I really liked.
Those albums were:
- 3+3, by The Isley Brothers
- A Wizard / A True Star, by Todd Rundgren
- Kala, by M.I.A.
- Roots, by Sepultura
- Superunknown, by Soundgarden
- The College Dropout, by Kanye West
- Be, by Common
- Blunderbuss, by Jack White
- Devotional Songs, by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan
- Destroy Rock and Roll, by Mylo
- Dust, by Screaming Trees
- Hot Buttered Soul, by Isaac Hayes
- If I Could Only Remember My Name, by David Crosby
- In Rock, by Deep Purple
- It’s Blitz!, by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
- Le Tigre, by Le Tigre
- Live at the Star Club, by Jerry Lee Lewis
- The Man Who, by Travis
- Physical Graffiti, by Led Zeppelin
- Queens of the Stone Age, by Queens of the Stone Age
- Risqué, by Chic
- One Night Stand - Live at the Harlem Square Club, by Sam Cooke
- Superfuzz Bigmuff, by Mudhoney
- Take me Apart, by Kelela
- This is Fats, by Fats Domino
- C’est Chic, by Chic
- Tres Hombres, by ZZ Top
- Venus Luxure No. 1 Baby, by Girls Against Boys
- Whatever, by Aimee Mann
- Yank Crime, by Drive Like Jehu
- Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, by Wilco
So I might start buying some of those on CD, because I’m the sort of person who still buys CDs.
Now: I do believe there might be some SoundCloud playlists to catch up on.
