As Good as Gold

For a couple of 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.

I was going to suggest a different band this week, but Spencer thought it might be nice to do a Tom Petty tribute week. So that’s what we did.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers – Nobody’s Children (1995/2015)

Here’s their latest release, although it’s not their latest studio album. It’s disc six (tracks 81-92) from their Playback box set released in 1995, and re-released digitally in 2015. Or maybe the first of the six was released in 1995 and it took 20 years to release the final one. I’m not sure. Still, it’s part of a compilation. Continue reading

That’s More Like It

For a couple of 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.

David Guetta – Nothing but the Beat (2011)

Tim shared this after I made my suggestion, and I’m not going to say he did it in retaliation, but he must have known how I was going to feel about this album when he shared it. Continue reading

Always on the Run from Who We Are

For a couple of 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.

Big Something – Tumbleweed (2017)

Spencer is on a new album kick. These guys remind me of a Dispatch/Nine Inch Nails/Rush mashup with some sweet, sweet synth licks. It had tons of energy. Continue reading

This week I was not feeling well. Actually, it’s been coming for a couple of weeks. I think I’ve been working so much it’s literally made me sick. But I’m on the mend now, so that’s good. There have been a couple of times over the last three and a half years where I took a week off to have a vacation. This week I could have and meant to participate, but didn’t. I totally missed it, but here’s what Spencer suggested.

Fictionist – Sleep Machine (2017)

Here is a local band that made good. I shared the stage (or more accurately, I shared a bill) with them once. I have their first two albums and I like them, but haven’t really been following them for a few years. Continue reading

Hold On to the Minute

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

Steven Wilson – To The Bone (2017)

A new release, the solo album of the brains behind the prog rock band Porcupine Tree. It’s fun and more accessible than most prog rock. Continue reading

The Feeling that a Feeling is Over

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

Night Moves – Colored Emotion (2012)

Truth be told, Spencer shared this late last week, but I was camping, didn’t really have internet, and so didn’t really have a chance to listen to it. Continue reading

Gotta Keep on Rockin’

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

This week, however, after a month of listening solo, Tim returns to the game.

Foreigner – 4 (1981)

I’ve had this complicated relationship with Foreigner. I used to just be a radio fan of theirs. In high school, my girlfriend at the time gave me their greatest hits for my birthday. And then we broke up. So I can’t listen to Foreigner without remembering her.

She also gave me The Darkness’ first CD and introduced me to Guster and Dream Theater, but for some reason the nostalgia isn’t as strong (to the point I often forget she introduced me to Guster – and probably other bands as well) with those. Continue reading
