What we're about

Are you a nuisance to your friends and family because you constantly annoy them with useless music trivia? Do you reference song lyrics incessantly in conversation? Here's your chance to bond with like-minded individuals. This meetup is essentially like a book club - except we discuss classic albums instead of books. What determines a classic album? Well, I wrote a book a few years ago in which I aggregated more than 150 best-of lists to create a "top 100 albums of all time" list. You can see that list here:

Each time this group gathers, we dissect one of these albums. Do you like it or dislike it? How much familiarity did you already have with this album? What significance has it had (or not had) on music? Is this album overrated or undervalued? You get the idea.

Please note that there is a waiting list for this group at times, but I periodically bump inactive members in favor of new ones. Also, we have survived the covid era with Zoom meetings, but are going back to in-person meetings so I am no longer considering memberships outside of the Kansas City area.
