Advance notice to give us time to think, or remember.
I was talking to George (son) today and he told me about an idea which I thought I'd steal for this august forum. A list of our favourite albums for each year of this century. One per year only, so sixteen in total. Easy I thought, but then I bothered to think and it's not so easy, hence the advance notice. Thinking hats on forumistas. I look forward to your thoughts (and lists).

Yes, we should do this.

Towards the end of each year I make up a compilation of stuff that I've discovered that year, including new releases, tracks from compilations, stuff I've found while catching up on things that I missed the first time around, and old faves that I've found myself playing a lot that year, etc., all mixed up together. So if I pick just the new releases out of that lot, my list of candidates is already there.

A daunting task. I've not been paying much attention at the back here. I'm not sure I've even bought any kind of record this year. I'll have a review but much of my cd stash is currently boxed up in anticipation of a move to the coast.

I shall ponder upon this at the weekend and hopefully share the fruit of my ponderings not long after.

Well this topic seems to have temporarily gone off the boil. It is admittedly a hard task and a hard ask, what are you selecting yourself Aly?

Chris, I posted expecting a spasmodic response from forumistas, including myself. It's quite a task (although you and Mr Hall have jumped to it with admirable alacrity, thank you both). I shall be posting soon, but have got to make the space yet.

Sorry, Rob. I don't really listen to much modern music.
