My weeks-later impression of Jack White’s newest album
Did Michael Jackson make any history with his album HIStory? I’ll be the judge of that!
Discussing the GOAT and it’s not the album I expected to be discussing on my first Prince post
I ain’t ever gonna change my ways–I will always be a Blackberry Smoke fan now.
I mentioned this band in my 2020 anthems post about the songs that summed up my 2020. I had already discovered their song “Making Do” late in the year and thought it would be a contender for 2021 anthems. Since then, I heard Lake Street Dive’s latest single “Hypothetical” and fell in love with theContinue reading “Album Review: “Obviously” by Lake Street Dive (with Track Rankings…Obviously)”
Did Justice do Justin Justice Just a year after his last album?
I’m not brittle, well maybe just a little, a little.
The Foo Fighters made another good rock album. Yawn.
There are only 2 “great” songs on this album. What does that tell you? It tells you I’m clickbaiting you. Okay, stop reading this excerpt and just click on the link.

The 80’s are back and I’m okay with that.
The Foo Fighters’ 2017 Concrete & Gold was hit or miss for me. While it had a lot of strong tracks, many of them were forgettable. It was certainly better than its predecessor, Sonic Highways, but nowhere near as good as 2011’s Wasting Light (and my personal favorite Foo Fighters album). That’s a high bar,Continue reading “Track Rankings: Foo Fighters “Concrete & Gold””
Critics and fans alike hail the depth, maturity, and complexity of Led Zeppelin as their albums progressed, especially III and IV. While I wouldn’t call the band’s self-titled debut underrated, it often gets overlooked or downplayed because of the covers and “one-dimensional” composition of being a straight blues-rock album. Let’s talk about why it’s so greatContinue reading “The Greatness of Led Zeppelin I”
