    I can always be better, so I'll always try. Supporter

    Welp, it's 2019. Here's last year's list. Made it through 321 albums last year, give or take a few I might have forgotten!

    Musical Goals for this Year:
    • Write more! I loved doing write-ups of my favorite albums and songs at the end of each month, so I'll definitely do try to continue that. (Click the month title below to link off to them.) But I also want to do more individual album impressions on my blog to write down how I feel about the music that moves me.
    • Track single songs... I'm obsessed with how the streaming era is slowly morphing my listening habits from albums to songs, but I do want to continue my "Best Song I Heard Today" playlist project, which tracks random songs I love from the year. Here's last year's playlist.
    • ...But also go back to more albums. Looking back, 321 albums in a year is probably a few too many given my workload and brain capacity. I'm going to set aside a day each new month to listen to nothing but stuff from earlier in the year.
    Rating Scale:

    +++ = Immediate 'EOTY' Worthy
    ++ = Love

    + = Like
    * = Indifferent
    # = Dislike
