Hey guys, :wavey:

So many of us are now already working from home, studying at home, or will have lots more time at home than maybe we were previously used to. I can be guilty of just listening to the same thing over and over and watching the same 3 seasons of The Simpsons and The Office. BUT NO MORE!!!! If we are going to be stuck at home I want to broaden my horizons, listen to new music and make the most of a bad situation. That's why I'm introducing..........

TSR's Album Club!!

The premise is simple, every day we pick a new album to listen to together, then we can chat about how we found it, what we liked and disliked and generally just chat about music. Then we can discuss what we should listen to the next day, that way we all start listening to things that we may not of ever given a chance to if it wasn't for this thread.

We want as many people to get involved, I will post a link to the new album to be listened to that day at around 10am, we can listen, chat, and recommend new albums to be picked for the next day. We can even score each album and I will keep an average below.

I will keep a list of all the albums we have listened to, our average score in the post below.

Hope you can join us

At work (as I am most days), so my replies will be belated. Posting on TSR is one thing, but listening to music might push my manager's kindness too far. :laugh:

Recommending Grace Slick - Dreams. :blow:

Yes you can, whacking it in the backlog now!!!

Looking for something post 2010 for tomorrow to make sure we are mixing up the eras a little bit if anyone who hasn't recommended anything has a good idea
