Time Out says

An album is more than a collection of songs—it can serve as the soundtrack to a pivotal time in your life or the window to a new world of musical discovery. The Liner Notes storytelling series celebrates records that change lives, gathering local musicians, writers and artists to talk about a particularly influential LP. In September, rapper SHOWYOUSUCK discusses Many Facez by Tracey Lee, Chicago Tribune writer Jessi Roti unpacks Fever to Tell by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Hood Internet producer Steve Reidell professes his love of the soundtrack to the 1993 movie Judgement Night and Metro owner Joe Shanahan talks about Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures.
