I am seeing people in the YouTube Vinyl Community posting videos where they share the 10 albums they listen to most from their record collection, and as spins is something I actually track through a custom field I added into my Discogs Collection, I figured I’d throw my list together as well.Read More »The 10 Albums I Listen to Most on Vinyl

Today, I’m continuing on my path of counting down the top 20 albums turning 20 in 2023. For the first ten on the list, visit Part 1 where I cover 20 to 11. Today, I’ll be focusing on the top 10. As always, this list is a roundup of my personal selections, so there’s a definite subjective nature to it, but I also tried to inject at least some objectivity into it. Compiling this list has been filled with nostalgic memories of my college days.Read More »The Top 20 Albums Turning 20 in 2023 | Part 2
It’s 2023 and Death Cab For Cutie’s Transatlanticism turns 20 this year. In many ways that blows my mind! So today, I’m going to revisit the album, starting with taking a look at the vinyl versions released in it’s first 20 years, then unboxing my copy, which is the 10th Anniversary Pressing from 2013, and finally diving into the music itself and talking a little about some of the songs.Read More »Death Cab For Cutie | Transatlanticism at 20 Years

This is, undoubtedly, the most metal side of Death Cab For Cutie you will ever see. Released around the turn of the century puts this unique 7-inch closer to the group’s beginning than today, and was pre-dated (in Barsuk standards) only by Something About Airplanes, though the single was released in March 2000 to coincide with the release of We Have The Facts And We’re Voting Yes.Read More »Death Cab For Cutie: Sub Pop Singles Club [Cover Art]
The second installment of A Retrospective, in which I recap my favorite albums released from 2000 to 2008, this time: 2001. Wrought with turmoil and watching a life fall apart as so many others were having similar experiences but in a different manner; that was 2001 for you. The year I turned 21. A year that lives in infamy. Young or old, we all seemed to grow up that year. Music, too seemed to progress in ways unthought, even before that fateful day.Read More »A Retrospective Top 15: Best Albums Of 2001
I’ve decided to create an installment in which I do a recap of my favorite albums of the past ten years now that we’re coming up on the turn-of-decade – yes, 2010 is upon us.
The key: I do them one at a time.
I figure contemplating the weight of albums that have been instituted in my library for the better part (or even just half) of a decade would warrant a skewed opinion when comparing them to those released just this month. And, as these things are all truly opinion-based, well I just couldn’t have that.Read More »A Retrospective Top 15: Best Albums Of 2000
