Album of the Day Archives

Starting from January 2018, each week day (or as near as is practical), The Sound Not The Word will be putting out a short article on an album or song of the day. This may be on something recent, something yet to be released, or an old classic. The aim is to continue giving coverage to the best music out there, even if it’s not necessarily something new. Whether you find something new to listen to, or remind yourself how good a record is and revisit it, I hope this series of articles leads you to something you enjoy.

As of July 2018, following a break to reassess how it works best, Album of the Day is now solely a social media affair. To keep up with it, follow TSNTW on Facebook.
