The Bear’s Musical Biography

There are many different ways to quantify my time on this colossal ball of chemicals: 13,505 days, about 54,020 meals or 2.4 million Bourbon Creams. But I’m choosing to celebrate this auspicious occasion by listing 37 albums that made me the man I am today. This is not a list of what I deem to be the best albums ever made but the albums that marked special moments and became the soundtrack to my life. In addition, I’ve decided to use only one album per artist/ group – not necessarily the best album but the one that had the most impact.
