The CD Project: Revisiting, Reviewing CD Collection

the cd project

In the battle of analog versus digital audio, there is still no clear winner. While vinyl enthusiasts and cassette devotees cling to their nostalgia, the general population delights in the convenience of MP3s.

Don’t forget compact discs. The digital authority of the 1980s and 1990s has lost the popularity it once held with music lovers. In fact, most CD collections are buried alive by dust or in boxes out of eye’s sight.

This is not the case for everyone. Since 2010, a middle-aged man named Mark has been blogging his journey through his CD collection of over 1,000 albums. The concept is simple: Mark takes a CD from his collection and listens to it from start to finish – no shuffle, no skipping tracks. Then, he writes a review of the music including where it peaked on the US Billboard Top 200 Chart, his favorite tracks, and a personal memory associated with the CD.

To date, Mark has revisited and reviewed over 770 albums released between the 1940s and 2010s. The music is truly an assortment, ranging from soundtracks to Afro-Cuban, Christmas to classical, reggae/ska to gospel, and jazz to pop/rock.
