MP3 blog 2013/12/12 - BEST OF 2013

blog 2013/12/03 - BEST OF 2013

I'm not sticking to any prior format, I'm just dumping it all here. 
30 albums that I think everyone should check out.  No ranking, just alphabetical.  YOU CAN DO THIS! 
Go through the music and seek out every album that tickles you.  They are all fantastic, but your personal genres tastes will vary.
Keep open ears and an open mind.  Oh, and set aside 5 hours to properly take in it all.

You're simply the best:
