Goal is to listen to 1500 different albums in a 12 month period.
TODAY listened to 3 different albums. 117 day total 743. On pace for-
- GREEN DAY: AMERICAN IDIOT: 2oo4: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: The band dubbed it a punk rock opera- Green Day is about as punk as Lawrence Welk. I am not a big fan of these guys. This album has pretty strong songs which makes it probably their best album. Punk Rock for people who don’t have the stomach for the real thing.
- O’JAYS: THE ESSENTIAL O’JAYS: 2004: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Back Stabbers their greatest song, Love Train went to #1. They had 9 Top 40 hits- and did better than that on the R&B charts. Wisely just a single and not a double album.
- RODNEY CROWELL: THE OUTSIDER: 2005: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: A continuation of Crowell’s comeback which started with The Houston Kid and Fate’s Right Hand. This album is more political than the other two. Strong songwriting-always Crowell’s strength.
