Just for One Day

For a few years, some of my friends and I have been sharing music to listen to while we work. 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 went camping for a few days this week, so I just shared a single music video. I love the original, but I love this cover even more. Continue reading

There’s Got to be Something Better

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.

The Wallflowers – Bringing Down the Horse (1996)

This week I’m continuing the trend of bands I’m surprised we haven’t done yet. I feel like The Wallflowers were a staple of the mid to late ’90s. This is their second album, and while I really like their fourth and fifth, I thought if we were going to share one, it should be their biggest.

How much do I really have to introduce this album? Any single you know from them is probably from this record. It’s Jakob Dylan updating his dad‘s style of folk rock (and singing better)(and not being so political). It’s just solid ’90s roots rock. If you can get any of the bonus tracks, I recommend looking those up, too. Their cover of David Bowie‘s Heroes is great.

If my friends tell me what they thought, I’ll post their reviews here. Please leave your own comments (or music suggestions) down below.

The Stained-Glass Curtain You’re Hiding Behind

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.

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

Door to a Secret World

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.

Roger Taylor – Strange Frontier (1984)

Here is the second solo album from Queen drummer Roger Taylor. There’s a little Queen in there (to be expected) and some just ’80s goodness (also, to be expected), but it’s mostly just solid, straight up rock and roll. Continue reading

Does it Remove All of Our Pain?

For a couple of years some of my friends and I have been sharing music with one another. We review/rate what gets shared with us, and share those reviews with the group.

This week, we did something different. We tried an audio review; a pilot podcast episode.

Editors – The Back Room (2005)

There’s something about his voice I can’t pin down that reminds me of some more famous late ’90s/early ’00s alt. rock band. I’m not sure I nailed it exactly, but I’d say they’re kind of Tonic meets The Strokes meets Foo Fighters meets David Bowie meets The Bravery. And (I didn’t realize this until after we recorded) the late Chris Cornell. Continue reading

At Your Most Beautiful

Some of my friends and I share music with one another while we work. We’re supposed to review/rate what gets shared with us, and share those reviews with the group, but that doesn’t always happen.

Charlie Hunter – Everybody Has a Plan Until They Get Punched in the Mouth (2016)

Based on how much I liked his surf-rock Christmas album, I was pretty excited to give this follow up a listen. Continue reading

Pull Yourself Together, ‘Cause You Know You Should Do Better

Some of my friends and I share music with one another while we work. We’re supposed to review/rate what gets shared with us, and share those reviews with the group, but that doesn’t always happen.

Queen – News of the World (1977)

More Queen! While this album opens with some classics, I actually haven’t heard anything else off this record. So I’m kind of excited for this. Continue reading
