The idea was simple – to hold a World Cup of music. I would randomly put all my albums into groups of four (just like the football world cup!), listen to them back to back several times and grade them 1st to 4th. The top 2 go through to the next round – the bottom two are eliminated! Rinse and repeat for round 2 and see where we go from there.
I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t own every so called ‘classic’ album ever recorded and shock-horror, sometimes I don’t even rate so called ‘classic’ albums that much (as you will discover if you stick around) but I am constantly updating my collection and exposing myself to more and more music all the time.
I know what I like and I know what’s good. Besides, de gustibus non est disputandum! Here are the results (so far) !
