MY 50 FAVORITE ALBUMS OF THIS CENTURY, SO FAR

I've always been an avid music listener. But I went through a weird phase when I was younger where I was so stubborn I refused to listen to any modern music (post 1980s). Thankfully, that changed. During high school I began to delve deep into everything I had been missing. Now I can't imagine my life without this music. Inspired by @nathanveshecco
