Why are all of my blog posts embarrassing?

So, I was scrolling through my iTunes today and I realized that I have a lot of music that managed to end up in there without actually getting a listen. Some of the albums I haven't really listened to are REALLY SHAMEFUL. So, I made myself a playlist called "MUST LISTEN!" and proceeded to add almost 800 songs worth of albums that I need to familiarize myself with in order to be a better person. Or, some of you may argue, a person at all. Now, just because something is on this list doesn't mean I've NEVER listened to it, or that I've NEVER listened to the artist... it just means that I didn't give this particular album a fair listen, or I don't remember it at all. So I'm going to work my way through this list and report back to you periodically with my likes and dislikes and such.

So anyway, as you can see, it's kind of awful that I haven't listened to some of these... I'm particularly shy about admitting that I haven't really experienced Figure 8 or Daydream Nation. But, who knows? Perhaps my oversights are yours, and once I say "HEY BLOG, THIS ALBUM IS REALLY GOOD!" You'll listen too! And then everybody wins. Get excited!
