Hey there. Recently I hit 500 followers, and I would like to thank all of my followers by reviewing any album they recommend me. It doesn’t matter what type of album it is, just make sure it’s under 15 songs, and that it’s something I haven’t reviewed before. Make sure to tell me which album you want in my shout box. If you can’t participate, that is certainly OK. Apologies if I cannot review your favorite album.

Cheers!
