Hard not to end the 2017 year in music (and these first few months of the In My Ear blog) with any artist or album other than Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. It’s powerful, intricate, honest, and ‘catchy’ in that distinct way that only critically acclaimed AND broadly popular/financially successful albums can be.
The album is atop most critics’ “best of 2017” lists and it’s on track to (deservedly) dominate the Grammy’s, so there ain’t much more to say. Only to listen….
BIG THANKS to all of you who are tuning in to the blog–here and via Facebook. I’m having a blast keeping up the site and curating this space for music; let’s keep it rolling in 2018.
And, remember, check out the In My Ear 2017 Playlist as you wind down the year.
Here’s to wisdom, love, courage, and hope in 2018. Peace.
