I often find myself in disagreement with music fans as well as music critics. Is it because I have a shitty taste in music, or because they do? It is of course the latter.
As a result there are many albums out there that I feel didn't get the proper respect. They were criminally overlooked, hugely underrated or simply misunderstood. This site is a tribute to those albums, and an attempt to give them the treatment they deserve, albeit in a small way.
For you, the visitor, it is an opportunity to bask in the sunlight of my superior taste in music. Even if you only absorb 1% of that light, you will have learned a lot.
