It's like a book club but for music!

It's like a book club but for music! Every week, a different member will get to pick an album for the entire group, then we'll discuss what each one of us thought about the album as a whole, the individual songs, everything.

The main idea is to discover/discuss great music that's out there. Doesn't have to be new music, could be classics or albums that got released 5 years ago.

Don't feel obligated to write a 5000 word essay. We just want to know Why do you like that album so much, as to recommend it to total strangers? Same thing for opinions on the album, no need to write a full review just tell us what you thought of it: Did you like it? Why?

Every member will *have to* participate, there is a "3 strikes you are out" policy.

The music style could be anything as long as it's good. :)

If you write journals on albums, feel free to submit them for group reading. And check out our very own tag

    Hi all, I just wanted to say goodbye before I leave the group. It's been swell, but I've clearly not been able to find or make the time to be a good, productive member. Plus, on a circular note, the low feedback makes it less compelling to contribute... Happy listening, and thanks for the new music I've discovered through you guys!

    You're welcome MiniPlato! :) Sadly, we've hit another two week bump :( Hopefully the next user will submit something.

    Hi there fellow music addicts! :) Thought I'd check out the year winners for a start and Slaraffenland is killing me. In a good way, lol. Anyway, thanks for letting me in pecusita.

    We gain an arm. We lose an arm. We are even Stevens.

    This thing cannot get started. Three weeks in a row and still no one coming forward with an album! :/

    Ok last user left the group so I guess this cycle has ended. Will message a new draft this week!

    If any of the new member would like to catch up and add their input, they are more than welcome but not obligated :)

    Paragraph three up there in the group description is pretty much the only guideline for the reviews. The first album of the current cycle (if I'm not mistaken) is Harlem Shakes - Technicolor Health. You could still technically listen to the albums of last cycle and vote on them too. (cycle 6, the thread has a sticky)

    My musical preference is 80.79% similar to the Weekly Album Appreciation Club group. Musically, I fit in! Ran this script since I realized I had only listened to 3 of the albums that have been reviewed so far....I guess 80% is pretty close, hope I can find something new for most everyone when my turn comes around.

    Hi everyone. This seems like a constructive idea for a group, I listen to a wide variety of music. Always looking for more, which explains my love for last.fm. Any guidelines for reviewing the albums lying around anywhere?

    Hello everyone! I know we have not been that active lately due to users not turning in their picks but hopefully we'll be able to end this cycle then move to vote for the album of the cycle/year because there's not much time left for the year then start anew in January. That's when our new members, Xemper, gpjunior5 and gmaurice will be eligible to pick.

    I guess I should do that, yes... I've been a bit lazy these days... summer does that to me.

    I don't think we'll have an album for next week (08/31). That user has not logged in in a month and he's never participated in the group to begin with so I booted him. Take the extra week to catch up on the other albums!

    After we talked, I secretly messaged some members of the group and asked them to listen to the Killers at least once.

  • groze

    I don't want the killers to be the most listened to artists in this group. I'm anti-the killers.
