All that He Wants, If Not All that He Needs

For a few years, some of my friends and I have been sharing music. Sometimes we review that music and share our comments with the rest of the group – but that doesn’t always happen.

Mustard Plug – Evildoers Beware! (1997)

Next week is the four-year anniversary of my friends and I playing this game. I have no idea what I’m going to do for that.

But at the end of next week, some friends are releasing an album. And while I don’t know what their sound is like, I know what their last band sounded like: Mustard Plug. So before I share my friends’ album (look for that in two weeks), I thought I’d put it in context and share this album. Continue reading

Riding High on His Whims

For a few years, some of my friends and I have been sharing music. We’re supposed to review/rate what gets shared with us then share those reviews with the group, but that doesn’t always happen.

EVƎ 6 – Horrorscope (2000)

These guys really remind me of 9th grade. But unlike other bands of that same era, Eve 6 has stayed with me – to the point that one of the songs I wrote around the time I joined the team that eventually started this game was musically inspired by this album. Continue reading

Ylvis – Volume 1 (2014)

aWiTA Wrinkle in Time soundtrack (2018)

On Saturday, my wife and her mother went and saw a film based on a book that thoroughly confused me as a child. But my wife said she really liked the music, and recommended that I share it with all of you this week. Continue reading

You Know You’re Misunderstood

For a few years, some of my friends and I have been sharing music. We’re supposed to review/rate what gets shared with us then share those reviews with the group, but that doesn’t always happen.

Glen Campbell – Rhinestone Cowboy (1975)

Tim shared something from a genre we haven’t really touched on much. We’ve had some Americana, folk and bluegrass, but not much country. Although I wouldn’t say this is country as much as it is country-flavored pop rock. Continue reading

Ready, Set, Go

Since the spring of 2014, some of my friends and I have been sharing music to listen to while we work. Sometimes we review that music and share those reviews with one another.

SweetHaven – SweetHaven or Help Yourself (2004 or 2009)

I wanted to get back to basics this week. There’s a ton of good music out there, but I wanted to share something that inspires me as a musician. Continue reading

I Probably Wouldn’t if I Could

Dixie Chicks – Not Ready to Make Nice (2006)

This week I’ve not been feeling well, so combine that with the holiday … and that means I just shared one song. And since I totally missed the Grammy’s this year, I’ll make it a Grammy winner for Best Song. Continue reading
