1001 Albums You Must Neek Before You Die (Part 1)

I know it's a pretty basic goal, but one day I want to have listened to every album in this goddamn book. I know it's not conclusive or that they're all essential, but I figure it's a good excuse to push myself to try new music. I've been listening to new music religiously for a few years now, so this is kinda like a sum of all my work since then, in order from first to last listened.
