Top 10 Albums Impact Challenge

5 Benefits of Undertaking a Blog Challenge  --Blooming Prejippie Zine

This post very loosely accompanies Gab & Jam Episode 123

We’ve been nominated separately to complete the 10 Albums Impact Challenge, so we thought this was the perfect opportunity to do a Gab & Jam episode, so here we are. –No cheating! You’ve got to listen/watch the episode to find out each of our top 10 albums and what they mean to us. (video: and podcast: )

Though we chose the most impactful albums—and not just favorite or best—we each used different criteria for choosing. Bruce chose the albums that impacted him most as a bass player or as a songwriter, while I chose albums based on personal impact on my personal mental well-being and/or on their impact on me as an artistic individual. Either way, you may be surprised at some of our choices.

However, this post is a re-cap of the Top 10 Impactful Albums video/podcast:
