    Just out of interest, how do you know how many albums you've heard? Is that 7000 albums that you like and have in your collection / iTunes library, or 7000 albums you've heard in total, including albums that you didn't enjoy and wouldn't come back to? If the latter, how do you keep track of that?

    I made it a project during the pandemic to put all my listening lists from 2010-present, my “to-buy” list, and my database of what I own together into a master spreadsheet of what I’ve heard. Then I went in and added as many albums that I heard and “no’d” prior to 2010 as I could remember. So it’s not perfect, but it’s as close as I can get to a list of everything I’ve heard

    It’s been useful for the year-by-year

    Interesting! That’s quite an undertaking! There’d be some cool stats and graphs and stuff that I’m sure would be possible to make from that master list too.

    Oh yeah. It honestly would have been impossible if I wasn’t already such an avid record keeper of what I listen to every year and what I own. Working from already assembled lists was the the only way
