The Final Shuffle: #iPodAlbumPlaylist, pt. VII


Here is my final prearranged 25-album playlist. After completing the last leg of a playlist created back in May, I made a brand new playlist a few weeks ago and put it on shuffle. This will be the last time I take this approach; though I plan to continue these #iPodAlbumPlaylist round-ups each month, from now on they will appear at the end of the month and simply reflect every album I listened to during that month. No prearranged playlists, no shuffles, no set amount of LPs. However, if I listen to an album that already appeared in an earlier round-up, I won't include it again.

I listened to the following albums in the weeks preceding my birthday (which was yesterday, also the first time I've not posted on November 1 since the blog began which I'm kinda bummed about). Among these are many more classic favorites than appeared on the previous lists; maybe I was in a nostalgic mood. Nonetheless, there are also (as always) records I'd never ever heard before or at least seldom really listened to. And, of course, there's an old favorite that was particularly pertinent and poignant this week (though it was incorporated ahead of time, by coincidence). RIP Lou Reed - and thanks for all the great music. (h/t for the memorable top image: Zombies en el Ghetto)

As always, you can follow my listenings on Twitter, scan my last playlist or look at all previous round-ups on this blog.
