Ok, it's has been a while.

Thanks to listening to podcasts, my daily devouring of music came to a standstill. I continued to listen to new music here and there but not to the extend in past years. I think my brain needed some time away from listening to 100 songs a day (that was my goal). Two or three good songs out of 100 was pretty common. I felt like I was listening more to bad songs than the songs that made my back tingle. I still kept a record of the music that I listened to during this down time. I usually make a podcast of my favorite songs, but I just can't see myself doing that anytime soon. The list below is for my own demented sickness and love for music.
I should come up with some sort of legend to classify which albums: I liked, hated, or just couldn't get into.
Some of these albums had a good song or two but the rest of the album was garbage. I despised other albums for their lack of a good song. The remaining albums were bands that I just couldn't get into, not to say that the music was bad. It was just not music I enjoy but I certainly would recommend it to someone who enjoys that sort of music. I'm going to break up the list in the next couple of posts.
