I did this list in order for you to get a better understanding of the music I liked and the music that helped shaped me. These eight years that I picked where crucial as I was reaching the end of my adolescent and entering the adult stage of my life, to officially become a man.
I decided to do the years 2006 through 2014—an eight-year gap, rather than a ten-year range—because I wanted to go as far back as ten years from the current year. I decided to stop at 2014 because choosing something from 2015 seemed too farfetched and too soon.
Plus, in 2006 I was 17 and on the brink of adulthood. I still had no idea who I was. Everything including my surroundings helped shaped me in a way.
It was tough.
If I had included the years 2004 and 2005, the list would’ve been completely different. 2005 was a great year, there’s plenty of music that came out that year that I loved, just look at the anniversaries that I wrote about last year. That’s not including some of the projects I left off.
In between some posts, I’ll sprinkle in some other content.
