Eli's 2021 Record Weekly Diary

This is a list to record all the new records I listened throughout the year, on a weekly basis. This definitely would require dedication and consistency (both I do not have), but ayehu, let's see how this goes.

This list would include both new releases and past releases, just a general summary of what I listened throughout the week, and what I think is the best of the bunch. However, the record that's on the cover of the week is what I think is the best release of the week.

Most importantly, a huge thank you to @Toasterqueen12 for letting me use her list's idea. If you for some reason still haven't checked her list out yet, here's a link: https://www.albumoftheyear.org/user/toasterqueen12/list/11638/2020-album-diary/

Another Sky - Music For Winter Vol. I
67
Week 1 (1/1/2021 - 7/1/2021)

General summary: The first week of 2021. Got a few recommendations here and there, discovered a few by myself, and overall, pretty good! Exams are coming within a week, so I've listened to a lot of instrumentation records to keep focused. I'm stressed as all hell.

Week 2 (8/1/2021 - 14/1/2021)
