Fernand Léger - Breakfast, 1921.
Album no. 32/365
This album was slept on when it was released. Over shadowed but other NY/East coast huge rap albums at the time like Nas’ Illmatic, Mobb Deep’s The Imfamous and 36 Chambers by Wu Tang Clan. It’s since been heralded as somewhat of a classic. If you’re into jazz rap, NY rap, or hardcore rap this album is a must have. When this record came out I was all of 2 days old.
My grade: B+

Album no. 31/365
This is my favorite Daft Punk record. Somehow it usually isn’t thought of among their best, most people pick albums like Discovery or Random Access Memories as their #1 but this one has so much more life. This is an 83 minute monster album that’s exciting from start to finish. These dudes do a show in their hometown of Paris where they basically mash up all their hits into new songs that don’t exist outside of this record. This is a great chance to hear their amazing talent as live DJs. There isn’t a live dance music record that I return more than this one, it’s a masterpiece, for me at least.
