No mockingbirds were killed in the making of this album. Grunge crosses paths with the Beatles while dropping acid. It took a lot of listens for me to appreciate this album. Now I'm sick of it.
Thanks, Bill Cosby.
Joyous distorted guitar almost covers the lyrics but the message is clear: coming of age is hard. You're filled with hope and despair, confidence and fear. Fun and yet meaningful album.
Smooth. Sparse guitar work. Chill out with enough pop to lift you out of darkness.
It comes at around 54 seconds in Lisa Wilson's song "Christmas Dreams". Thank you, Lisa, for reaching out to all the photographers and asking permission before using our work. It's the right way to do things. Give it a listen to show you support independently published music and the respect for intellectual property.
Retro. Modern. Cutting Edge. Timeless. Jack White is one of the most interesting musicians alive. I'm also excited to hear what he has done and what he is doing now.
The person sent it to me SEVEN times.
Aha, that's the secret.
The Doors | "L.A. Woman"
Awesome writing, top notch musicianship... of course the fact that this is a great album is news to no one. Still, it's fun to be reminded to give it a relisten now and then.
Can | "Tago Mago"
Some albums get better each time you listen to them. Some don't. And SOME even get worse. I was intrigued the first few times I listened to "Tago Mago" but the discordance and free form soloing eventually drove me up the wall. Some experiments should not be conducted.
