I think I have identified my (relative) lack of enthusiasm for some of the more acclaimed artists: I hardly ever pay any attention to lyrics. I'm thinking I'd like Punisher more if I did. But it's so hard to focus!
It's a little early, but I THINK I have my July albums already picked out! (1) N&G's selection ~ Richter's Four Seasons (2) Prince Paul ~ A Prince Among Thieves (VMP) (3) Ramones ~ s/t (4) Stevie Wonder ~ Songs in the Key of Life (5) Judas Priest ~ Sad Wings of Destiny and (6) RTJ4 preorder....Now I just need to find $$$....And a decent copy of Rush 2112 (and more $$$).
Ok, I went a little vinyl-mad with the year 1975. But I am now the proud owner of (1) Parliament - Mothership Connection (2) Springsteen - Born to Run (3) Patti Smith - Horses (4) Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here and (5) Willie Nelson - Red Headed Stranger. The 1970s collection progresses!
Ok, so I haven’t spent much time with Bjork’s music. My limited knowledge consists of hazy memories of strange MTV videos. I’m listening to Post now. I feel like a significant portion of my life has been wasted by my not listening to it sooner.
Damn, I am having a hard time keeping up with new releases (and the thread re same), listening to the best albums of the 70s (my own project), checking out the N&G AoTMs (and their offshoots), and participating in Woob’s best album of the year thread. It’s never a dull moment on this forum!
