Continuing on the theme of the #3albums series, this week is devoted to the year 2003 for Richard Shaw’s #3albums03 Twitter poll.

The whole week covers 19 – 23 October. I previously covered this in my post #3albums03 Twitter poll which you can read here.

This blog gives a breakdown of what I was listening to each day as I tried to come up with my top 3 albums for 2003. I thought they was a pretty good year music wise and the amount of albums covered, a total of 44 reflected on a good year of music to listen to.
