2020 Album Challenge Thread: And Go!

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by ohnostalgia, Dec 28, 2019.

  1. It's almost the New Year and that means one thing. Setting unrealistic goals for the next 365 days! To open the new decade why don't you join the PopJustice Album Challenge? It's basically the Goodreads Book Challenge but with music. You pledge to listen to a certain number of albums this year. The goal could be 25, it could be 52, it could be 100, it could even be 365. If you're not sure about a big goal, start small; you can always add on once you've accomplished it. The only criteria? These albums must be ones you've never listened to before. I don't care what year they were released in, but they must be new to you.

    Hi, I'm @ohnostalgia and I'll set my first goal for 200 albums. But it's probably going to end up at 365 like it was in 2019.
     
  2. I loved participating in the 2019 one so I'm definitely here for this. My goal will be the amount of albums I listened to for the first time in 2019 plus one, so I'll have to wait a couple of days to see how many that'll actually be.
     
  3. My main goal is 366 albums cause 2020 is a leap year I said I’d try to listen to an album a day. To make my life that more interesting I decided to do the same with films so I hope I can do both with no issues. I will set myself a target for every quarter next year so basically my target to start with is 91 albums for Q1.
     
  4. I vow to not fall of the wagon this year. In 2019 my relationship with music went all weird and I sorta fell into a funk but I think I’m starting to love music again and I’m excited to do this. I think I’m going to set my goal at 25 for now and add on later.
     
  5. The Hot Rock - 60/50 old releases, 17/50 2020 releases, 77 total

  6. I too started off the 2019 challenge well... and then crumbled under the weight of my own monthly rules, goals, and format. I’ll likely try again this year with a simpler approach. I think I’ll just shoot for 100 new albums.
     
  7. Extremely here for this. Doing it this past year was fun, even if I tapered off of it in the last few months. Like 2019, I'm going to start with a goal of 50, and add more once/if I reach that.
     
  8. I started the 2019 challenge very enthusiastically, but I think the fact that I also tried to write poor short reviews kind of made me lose my motivation. I think I will set my goal at 30 for the time being. I've already made a little playlist with albums I'd like to check out. I'm also still hoping the challenge will give me a chance/kick under my butt to get me back into listening to new k-pop releases that I've missed/will undoubtedly miss, but I'm still not 100% comfortable with engaging with k-pop other than my absolute top 3 favourite acts. I'll try, though.
     
  9. I know K-Pop will pad out my list lots but apart from Artists that I’m loyal to I’m keeping my relationship with the genre as casual as possible for my own betterment so non K-Pop acts will be my main focus for next year.

    I’m currently halfway drawing up my list of 91 albums I’ll read 2019’s thread to see if anything catches my eye.
     
  10. I'll tentatively set 70 as my goal. I intend to chill on the music consumption front, so this should help me ensure I won't abandon albums altogether.

  12. Well, due to uhh...life events that occurred in 2019, I kinda forgot how to actually enjoy music and keeping up with the latest releases became more of an obsession than something I actually wanted to do (which incidentally is why I couldn't finish listening to every Mariah album, I just didn't have the time with all the new music I was hell bent on consuming). So in 2020 I'd like to actually start engaging with the albums and EPs I listen to more rather than just chucking them on in the background while I'm wanking.

    I'll set my initial goal at 100 and see how I go.
     
  13. I don't think Hayley Kiyoko's album needs to take up 2 places.

    Why don't you replace it with this?
     
  14. For the people talking about overconsumption, I fully support small goals too. That is itself a unique challenge, to spend so much time with such few albums. I used to do that, but back when it was more difficult for me to obtain new music.
     
  15. I'll probably still have some changes as there are some albums who "overlap" one another (and I didn't even see Hayley duplicated oops)

    I'll replace with the one you recommended. Thanks!

    I’d like to say I’m going to listen to at least a new album every week, making my goal 52, but I just know I’ll end up listening to Melodrama on repeat again for most of the year. I’ll definitely try though.

    (Just gonna update this post heu heu)

  18. My list which is still a work in progress is primarily made of old albums with some new ones due out this year which I haven’t spilt it into 4 parts yet. I’ll update this post of my progress because my main concern is keeping motivated. I’ll probably start with albums I know I will definitely enjoy before going to ones out of my comfort zone. Also recommendations are welcome as it will help me reach my 366 target with less stress.
