1977 OMAs: Album of the Year

Pretty good, but either too much or not enough.

1977 OMAs: Album of the Year


1977 One Man Academy
Album of the Year

Rule Zero

"If zero albums are up to OMA standards in a given year, none of the albums get an award that year."
OMA Rules of the Road

Worth A Listen

  • Chicago X, Chicago
  • Songs in the Key of Life, Stevie Wonder

If you only listen to one song: Ngiculela-Es Una Historia-I Am Singing

Songs in the Key of Life
There are many gems on Songs in the Key of Life. For my taste, the album is too long, and a handful of the songs are too long. Not a huge deal... nothing the skip button can't fix.

Chicago X
Chicago is an eminently listenable band and likely one of my favorite discoveries from the OMA project.
