It's not bad, but they lost something with the contributions of Kendall Jones and Chris Dowd. It's just not on the level of the great run between Truth & Soul, Reality of My Surroundings and Give a...

I think with all of the late 90s, if you steer clear of the mainstream playlists, you'll be alright. There was an adjustment period, because after Nirvana, the big labels were signing just about...

Definitely my least favorite year of the 90s. Awful. It can be deceiving when you see so many great albums on my list, but only a half dozen of them sold much. I chose 1996 originally because I...

And one last thing, because I think this gets at the nub of what I'm saying. It's interesting to compare the quotes from Izzard, in defense of Rowling, and Daphne Dorman's sister in defense of Dave....

Billy Joel falls into that category of artist that I really like his best dozen or two songs, but he doesn't have much of a deep bench, making most of albums rather shallow affairs. Innocent Man and...

I have to suspend a lot of critical disbelief when it comes to 80s lyrics. "Every Breath You Take" is a good example. So many popular songs have some very dark and obsessive tones that seem to have...

"Is There Something I Should Know" was a non-album single, I see.

I think I kinda do.


I love stuff like this though, looking through old newspapers from the fourties and seeing ads for washing machines for 4 dollars. Great stuff.

And for the record, lil' Jinn's jam from '83 had to be "Say Say Say". It was the last 45 I ever bought. Play that at 33 and tell me it doesn't groove. But meanwhile, outside of "So Bad", the rest...

Some of the criticism certainly is dumb. I keep seeing how Dave "defended" and "lent support" to DaBaby. Did he though? Not exactly! Kind of weird support to say, "Oh, he's done so much worse...
