Reflections : One, Two, Three Years Ago : August

Once again, I’m back with a Reflections entry, to check out my listening patterns, one, two, and three year ago, about this time in August. I’ve done a few similar write-ups a few years ago, and they helped me put my journey through music into a reflective perspective and revisit some of my favorite dusty albums. I hope this is not much of a diversion from my regular articles, and that some of the names on here will excite you as well…

Here are the top 15 most played artists during the month of August:
