Board 8 Wiki

The Board 8 Album of the Month Club was started in October of 2007 and is a continuing series. Every month a new topic is posted that allows the users of the club to post a recommended album for that month. Each member will then download and listen to all of the recommended albums and, if they wish, rank and post their thoughts about each album. There are no rules for what type of album can be posted, though most users post albums they enjoy and that the other users of the club may not have heard before. The Album of the Month Club is a great way for the members to expand their musical tastes and hear new music.

The club tries to maintain a set number of participants and allows new members only when an old member will no longer be able to participate. This is done to keep the number of albums down to a reasonable number for each month - helping to allow each member to listen to every album. Users not in the club are free to post suggestions and reviews though the members of the club can't guarantee that they will get to any extra albums.

The Album of the Month Club was on hiatus from June through September of 2008.

The Album of the Month Club, after reconvening for a short period, went on a longer hiatus. On May 9th, 2010, Axem Snow/snowcampsoldier started the club back up again allowing for 10 people to sign up.
