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

The World Will be as One

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.

John Lennon – Imagine (1971)

I wasn’t really planning this. Since nobody else shared anything the week I shared a solo George album, I just started listening to a bunch of their solo stuff. And since nobody shared anything last week either, I just kept listening to ex-Beatle solo albums. Continue reading

You’re Not Coming Back Anymore

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.

Ringo Starr – Ringo (1973)

Like last week, I’m sharing an album from an ex-Beatle. Last week’s George Harrison album had a song where Ringo and Paul joined George to do a song commemorating the (then) recently deceased John. This album, however, is the closest we ever got to an actual Beatles reunion until the Anthology albums in the mid-’90s. Continue reading

The One Who Imagined it All

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.

George Harrison – Somewhere in England (1981)

Much like before they broke up, after The Beatles broke up, George and Ringo never seem to get the attention they deserve. John got the most coverage. Paul still has a decent career, but I like George’s solo material the most. Continue reading

We Belong to the Sky

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.

Elytra – Embers and Stardust (2016)

This is something I’ve had on my list to listen to for 6+ months. This is a band my boss discovered (actually, I think the guitarist from this band played in a band with my boss). Continue reading
