Soar Like a Bird with His Heart Full of Song

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.

Billy Joel – Cold Spring Harbor (1971)

As Tim prepare’s for the Billy Joel concert this weekend, he shared Joel’s first album.

I’ve listened to a lot of Billy Joel, but I don’t think I’ve ever listened to this album before. Apparently there was a mixing/mastering mistake that made his voice sound a little higher and Billy Joel hates it. Continue reading

Abba – Gold (1992)

Being a greatest hits album, this album is full of great tunes. Continue reading

The Stained-Glass Curtain You’re Hiding Behind

Weezer – Pacific Daydream (2017)

Weezer‘s latest release, only a couple of days old.

The first thing I have to say is that the artwork seems very un-Weezer-y. It looks like art, instead of just a picture of the four of them, and I like it. Continue reading
