The original idea from the OP was to say which albums you did listen to and if you want to say something about it. That also means: you can say: I listened to this album and it is really horrible.

BTW yesterday evening I listened to Marianne Faithfull's Strange Weather, a very good (maybe not great) album, very nice to listen to late at night.

LOVING this new Josh Ritter album... he's BACK!

Fantastic lyrics:

"Getting Ready To Get Down"

Mama got a look at you and got a little worried

Papa got a look at you and got a little worried
Pastor got a look and said, "Ya'll had better hurry"
Send her off to a little bible college in Missouri
And now you come back sayin' you know a little bit about
Everything they ever seemed to hope you'd never figure out
Eve ate the apple 'cause the apple was sweet
What kinda god would ever keep a girl
From getting what she needs?
And I'm getting ready to get down
Getting ready to get down
Getting ready to get down

Now people cross the street when you walk in their direction
Talk between their teeth throwin' epithets
And the doctor thinks a devil musta got you by your senses
But to live the way you please doesn't sound like possession
Four long years studyin' the Bible
Infidels, jezebels, salomes, and delilahs
Back off the bus in your own home town
Sayin' you didn't like me then probably won't like me now
But I'm getting ready to get down
Getting ready to get down
Getting ready to get down

The men of the country club
The ladies of the 'xilliary
Talkin' 'bout love
Like it's apple pie and libery
To really be a saint
You gotta really be a virgin
Dry as a page of the
King James Version
No ohh la la's, no oh yesses yesses
No I can't waits I got to see you againses
Turn your other cheek and take no chances
Jesus hates your high school dances

They said your soul needed savin' so they sent you off to bible school
But you know a little more than they were sure was in the golden rule
Be good to everybody, be a strength to the weak
A joy to the joyful, the laughter in the grief
And give your love freely to whoever that you please
Don't let nobody tell you 'bout who you oughta be
And when you get damned in the popular opinion
It's just another damn of the damns you're not giving
I'm getting ready to get down
Getting ready to get down
Getting ready to get down

Mama got a look at you and got a little worried
Papa got a look at you and got a little worried
Pastor got a look and said, "Ya'll had better hurry"
Send her off to a little bible college in Missouri
And now you come back sayin' you know a little bit about
Everything they ever seemed to hope you'd never figure out
The Red Sea, the Dead Sea, the Sermon on the Mount
If you wanna see a miracle watch me get down
Cause I'm getting ready to get down
Getting ready to get down
Getting ready to get down

20 years old today

No More Tears and Ozzmosis were wonderful albums that defined the next chapter in Ozzy's career. Containing some of his most prolific music since the early 80's, Ozzy and his production team crafted two excellent albums that to this day still kick some serious ass.

20 years later, the rat is still in the cage and Mellon Collie still matters.

Billy Corgan once called Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness "The Wall for Generation X". It fits, 28 sprawling songs that run the gambit from disenchanted and pissed off to cautiously optimistic and sweet. For those of us who came of age during the early to mid 1990's, Mellon Collie was a massive album that helped define the "alternative nation". I love this album and always have, it ranks among my favorite records of all-time.
