500 Albums That Christian Young Adults (18-35) Should Hear (Part IV)

I was that loner kid who read comics when everyone else was playing, listened to the B-sides and watched old movies ... Now I write about it


Have I even listened to 500 albums in my life time? At least.

And it never ceases to amaze me how each album can make you feel different things. How certain songs are like different colors of the rainbow; able to incite different moods, vibes, etc.

Listed below are a hundred of the 500 albums that I believe that Christian (and non Christian) young adults should hear.
