    Hey Guys!! First time running a thread of any kind, so this should be fun!

    The usual rules

    1. Don't play one you've already played this month

    2. Don't play one that someone else has already played today

    3. Have fun!!


    With that out of the way lets do this thing!!!


    Day 1: First Day of the Month so let’s play a debut album

    Day 2: Debuts are hard to follow up, play an album that fell victim to the sophomore slump

    Day 3: Play and album by an artist who was guessed in the guess thread for November Essential ROTM

    Day 4: Play an album that you bought on complete impulse


    Day 5: We made it to Friday! Play some music to dance to!

    Day 6: Play the album which is the newest addition to your collection


    Day 7: headed to Outfest in my city today. Play an album by an LGBT+ artist

    Day 8: Hometown Heroes, play an album by an artist from your hometown area

    Day 9: Play an album that came out the year you were born

    Day 10: Made it to Day 10! Play an album that you’d rate a 10 out of 10!!

    Day 11: This sounded like such a neat idea so lets do it again. Play a record that to you relates to the one spun by the person who posted AFTER you yesterday

    Day 12: Play an album by an artist who is the same age as you are

    Day 13: My AOTY of last year came out one year ago today. Play one of your favorite albums of 2017

    Day 14: Going to see Florence + the Machine tonight! Play an album by an artist who’ve you seen live this year

    Day 15: Play a record with an awesome color design on it

    Day 16: Im a total weirdo who is obsessed with the Grammy’s. Play an album that the Grammy’s have nominated for Album of the Year

    Day 17: Hopefully we should all be getting our VMP packages around now. Play a country album in honor of our October Essentials album

    Day 18: Play an album with some killer bass lines

    Day 19: Going to see Mitski live tonight!!! Play an album from an amazing female indie artist

    Day 20: Play an album that makes you think of Drugs

    Day 21: You’ve waited long enough, lets do Jazz Sunday

    Day 22: Play a record whose artist’s first name starts with the same letter of your first name (I’m Matt so ill play an artist’s whose name starts with M)

    Day 23: What’s your favorite color? Play a record where your favorite color is found on the cover

    Day 24: Play your least favorite album by your favorite artist


    Day 25: Play a great record by an artist you don’t usually like

    Day 26: My younger sister turns 16 today. Play a pop album in her honor


    Day 27: Play an album that is NSFW

    Day 28: Play an album that you would love to get repressed

    Alright - I'm gonna get back on the challenge train this month. Might make the whole ride, might fall off and get dragged down the tracks. We'll see...

    Day 1: First Day of the Month so let’s play a debut album

    Pretty hard to believe this thing is 43 years old. The music still sounds fresh and this remains one of the more inventive LP covers you'll see...

    Day 1: Solo Debut*

    While most people think of this as his debut album, he did release a record as Stoney & Meatloaf 6 years prior. Everyone forgot about it.

    Meat Loaf ‎– Bat Out Of Hell
    Epic/Cleveland International Records ‎– EPC 82419, 1977

    European release
    Pressed at CBS, Haarlem

    Day 1

    In the beginning....

    It’s been a minute since I’ve played this bluesy rocky gothic record. It’s hard to describe, but damn if it isn’t awesome!

    Day 1 - Debut

    Inevitably this gets played in every month's challenge thread (as it should), and am very pleased this hasn't been scooped yet today. I'm never going to turn down an excuse to spin this beaut!

    It's impossible to deny the talent of someone able to write this album at the age of 17.

    Day 1 - A debut record

    Neutral Milk Hotel - On Avery Island

    An often over looked album overshadowed by their masterpiece of a sophomore album

    I actually picked this up after seeing them live in 2014

    Last month I started out keeping up, but just got too busy to remember to take pictures and post daily. Hopefully I can keep up this month.

    I COULD be massively cheat-y and post the album I'm listening to now as catch-up from last month's challenge…

    Eh, yeah I'm going to go for it. It'd be nice to actually be half-competent at these, and I am playing it today, after all…

    Day 1 - Debut Album

    Richard D. James had released a few things under different pseudonyms before this, but this would be the first album as such, and the first release under what would become his most famous moniker.

    Aphex Twin - Selected Ambient Works 85-92

    This album pales in comparison to Spirit They're Gone, Spirit They've Vanished. By a lot too.
