You, my reader, are going to pick an album for me to review each month. It is really simple…first, I will give you 5 albums to choose from and second, you will tell me which one of those you would like to see reviewed on the site. See…simple! Now, if you want to cast more than one vote, comment on the Twitter and Facebook post and you could get up to 3 votes on your favorite pick.
There are no longer rules for my selections, maybe themes. I’m just picking albums in my collection and this time they are classics from the 70’s. What are the 5 albums you ask? Funny you should ask because I have them right here…
Alice Cooper – ‘Billion Dollar Babies’
Elton John – ‘Captain Fantastic’
Rolling Stones – ‘Sticky Fingers’
David Bowie – ‘Diamond Dogs’
Led Zeppelin – ‘Led Zeppelin II’
Let me know which one you would like to see and sometime in December, I will post a review of the album that gets the most votes. You have one week to decide and from there I will start listening to the album and do a review.
We have another big week of releases for you on our Friday New Release post. And let me tell you, there is a plethora of styles, genres and sounds which means there will be something for you. You have my word or I’ll give you your money back…now of course you didn’t pay any money to be here so there is nothing to pay you back, but you get what I mean. My choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you want to hear or what I may have missed. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Kissin’ Dynamite – Not the End of the Road – (Napalm Records): This German band is now on their seventh album and I would say these guys are on to something as they keep getting better. Their 80’s stadium rock sound full of hooks and that anthem sound yet till sound modern. I can’t wait to hear what they have to offer this time around.
John Mellencamp – Strictly A One-Eyed Jack – (Republic Records): Can you believe this is his 25th album? Insane right. I hadn’t listened to him in awhile so now I think it is time to check him out again and see if there is still life left in this pirate.
My dog, Bear, lays next to me every time I sit down to write posts for the site. He is my faithful companion and it would feel weird writing anything if he wasn’t there. Well, the other day Bear told me he wanted to contribute to the site. At least that is what I thought he said because some times he stutters when he barks and I get things messed up.
Bears has compiled a list of his favorite songs. I hope you enjoy them.
“Hair of the Dog” by Nazareth (1975): My mom was a bitch!!
“Black Dog” by Led Zeppelin (1971): Okay, I am brown dog (red merle actually), but still a bad ass song.
“Diamond Dogs” by David Bowie (1974): Diamonds are a dog’s best friend too, especially around the collar.
