Goal is to listen to 1500 different albums in a 12 month period of time.
TODAY- LISTENED TO 5 DIFFERENT ALBUMS. TOTAL FOR 47 DAYS 290 DIFFERENT ALBUMS- ON PACE FOR 2252.
- VAN MORRISON: TOO LONG IN EXILE: 1991: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. Van sounds relaxed and happy on this one.
- JOE WALSH: BUT SERIOUSLY FOLKS: 1977: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. It is a 4 star even if “Life’s Been Good” was the only song on the album. Very solid album, good tunes from Richy Starkey’s brother- in-law. Why did Joe ever get involved with The Eagles?
- THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN: DARKLANDS: 1987. 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. The Reid brothers’ debut “Psychocandy” received much more critical acclaim but I’ve always preferred “Darklands” their second but maybe that indicates something about my tastes. Psychocandy” was more pop-noise whereas “Darklands” more melodic. Favorite songs ” Happy When It Rains” and “April Skies.” The Jesus and Mary Chain released their first album since 1998- a couple months ago.
- ELVIS COSTELLO: MIGHTY LIKE A ROSE: 1991: 3 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. This EC album never made heavy rotation. Seems to me like a collection of good but not great songs.
- BRIAN WILSON: BRIAN WILSON: 1988: 3 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS. Much hyped about when it was released since Wilson hadn’t done anything in years. “Love And Mercy” the most known song. Album has its moments.
