My experience with Buck was '88 when I was knee deep into Clapton at the time, and his album, Taking it Home featured Slow Hand on 'Why Does Love Have to be So Sad." Honestly woulda never known him if it wasn't for my love with Clapton, and he put him on the pop culture map with that song. Robert Cray also helped as well....great musician and was sorry to hear we lost him when I read the news. RIP

Damn, Billy looks good. I know it may seem odd, but this guy ruled late 80's in the 90's....Whiplash Smile, Charmed Life and obviously 83's Rebel Yell are essential albums of the time. He and The Cult are still the best bands to ever take Morrison and Elvis to new levels.

You both need to listen to more Bruce.

September 24, 2016 on Watch Bruce Springsteen Discuss His New Memoir On Colbert
I read this morning that evidently sales of his album are through the roof since that Today appearance...so, there's that? Either way, in one of his statements, he brought up a real strong case for the sorta 'cyber bullying' that went on, and there was such a sense of earnestness with his plea and that form of criticism should somehow be monitored more effectively. I know that, in the grand scheme of things, the dawn of the internet was only a short time ago, but this is one of those times where someone should use this as a platform and champion a cause to dampen poor commentary on public sites. TBH, personally, I don't even the likes of Twitter etc anymore because of this very fact. When a million people are able to voice opinion for all to see, you start to see just how stupid this country really is...

Knowing NPR the reasons must be political....although I can't seem to justify Canada loss...oh wait, yes I can.

Now, if Spotify can just figure out how to take my 9 hour and 46 minute playlist and shuffle more than only 25 songs, we'll have a clear winner.

This is a ballsy comment Bloch....I do think 'Down The River of Golden Dreams' was easily their best, I agree, but they released some pretty fantastic albums since.

Haven't given it a listen yet, but if its like you say, Paul Banks and too many 'lame midtempo songs' then it sounds like I need to get to this album immediately.

This is fantastic news...my Lord, if you haven't given Clinging to a Scheme a listen lately (or, at all for that matter) run to it now. Based on these tracks, nothing appears to have changed which is exactly the way it should be. I only wish Death to Fascism made it onto the album

I'll argue your first one...Ultra was great, but a little campy with all the blatant sampling and slight immaturity to it. I gotta attach Pablo Honey to that one. Plus, The Bends is a classic "which one of these is not like the other." Tell ya what tho...there is a ton of Radiohead inside the cracks of a few songs on Blonde

August 24, 2016 on Eddie Vedder Stops Song To Eject Chicago Fan
Very practical review now that some dust has settled. He's blended so many genres into a very soulful, radiant and refreshing, honest blend and his respect for musics past is very evident. I disagree that there aren't stand out hits, but it moves like a concept album and his ability to slink through the spaces of each song is a talent not many can pull off. This may be a far fetched comparison but it sorta reminds me of Girls, Father, So, Holy Ghost in the sense that its comprised of unique songs that carry moments of songs you've heard before, somewhere. It's an incredibly polished and well produced album. Christ, Bob Ludwig is credited for some of its production. He has clearly evolved the sounds of Motown and Jacksons Off the Wall just to name a couple. It's such an lush, absorbing listen and will grow more epic as the weather turns. It is nearly perfect.
