This is a community where you post a list of the 100 albums everyone should listen to before they die. This is a project that was born of a music conversation, and we want to see how far it can go. There are rules however, to be in this community and post a list of albums. The rules are as follows. 1. The list must consist of 100 albums you believe everyone should lisrten to before they dies. An album is an album. No compilations such as "Now Music #whatever", however, film/theater soundtracks count. 2. The top 10 albums must be in order of 1 to 10. #'s 11 - 100 can be in any order you like. 3. No singles are allowed on the list. 4. To be a member of the project, you must be a member of the community by Dec. 15, 2008. If you join the community after Dec. 15, you may not post a list, but you may comment on other people's lists. 5. Your list MUST BE POSTED BY DECEMBER 24, 2008 AT 11:59 PM. 6. Once you're list is posted, you cannot take albums out and put others in, however you can edit the order you put them in. 7. When writing your list, you must list it like this. 1. Band Name - Album name (release date). You may include the genre of music if you so choose. 8. Lists may be posted anytime before Dec. 24, 2008 at 11:49 pm, but no later.
These are the rules that apply to the challenge. If you dont want to adhere to the rule, please only comment on other peoples lists. Thanks guys. This is an experiment to see what people say and what people think everyone needs to listen to.
As an added challenge, you can compose a list of top 50 songs people need to listen to. The rules for that are 1. If you choose to do this, it must be a separate post from your 100 albums, for our sanity please. 2. Posting format is 1. Song Name - Artist - Album Title 3. This has no deadline, and people who join the community after Dec. 15th are welcome to post list.
If you are posting the album list, please title the post "100 Albums" and the song list "50 Songs"
I know this seems like a lot of rules, but this should be really fun. Please have fun with this.
ANYONE AND EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO DO THIS. Lets see how far we can get this.
