I started this just to keep a record of what I listened to and what I liked, and then I got carried away and started writing down my feelings. Here we are.

My ratings and reviews cannot tell you what is true about music, but they can tell you how I feel about music.

The albums that shaped my early listening. An amalgamation of things I heard on the radio, CD's I picked up at the library, and whatever I stumbled upon on the YouTube or iTunes.
