Yes, I've been slacking big time on this blog. But that's not to say that I haven't been listening to records. I have been. And here's a running list of the last 10 records I've listened to. I may be forgetting a record I listened to since I'm writing this away from my record collection. If so, I'll add it in later. Also, I may start doing it this way for a while. Especially since I have 10 or so Pat Metheny records coming up around the bend.
"American Pie" is a cool tune, but the rest of the album was a snooze fest.
Two things I can't believe about this record. One, that I only got it for .99 cents and two, that I don't think I had ever listened to it in its entirety before. Great album.
The album that introduced me to Megadeth. Still holds up strong 27 years later.
Not sure why the photos are coming up different sizes, but whatever. This was the follow up to Peace Sells... I didn't really like it that much when it first came out, but I couldn't pass up buying it for $7 at Waterloo.
Yes, I know it's a "John Cougar" album, but because I am a huge Mellencamp fan, I refuse to call him that. I'll never tire of the song "Ain't Even Done With the Night".
Even though the big hits "Hurts So Good" and "Jack and Diane" lead off record, my favorite tune is still "Hand To Hold Onto".
I was really getting into metal when this album came out so never owned it back in the 80's. But MTV played the shit out of "Crumblin' Down" and "Pink Houses" and I didn't mind them at all. Fave track is "Play Guitar" and "Golden Gates" is just a beautiful song.
Ok this is the album when Mellencamp really got me. "Lonely Ol' Night" is still my favorite song of his. I absolutely love every song on the record. Just a great, great rock n' roll album with a powerful message.
Sidenote: Listen to this album and tell me that Kenny Aronoff isn't a drum god. Dude doesn't get enough credit.
Didn't love it as much as Scarecrow, but still like the record a lot. I can't help but dance around like a fool whenever I listen to "Cherry Bomb". I've even stolen some of Mellencamp's dance moves.
You gotta be in the mood for this record since it's folky. I always loved "Jackie Brown" from the moment I heard it, but "Pop Singer" had to grow on me.
Well that's it for now. Hopefully I won't wait another 6 weeks before I post again. Good stuff coming up in my collection.
