Top 5 NZ albums

List by Bridie

"Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent."
- Victor Huge

At the beginning of May we sent an email around to all library staff asking for Top 5 list recommendations to celebrate NZ Music Month. Bridie submitted her list - which you see here before you today - and that's pretty gosh darn amazing considering she herself doesn't work for us, her mum does :) How cool is that?

Enjoy Bridie's list!
