Hmm, good question. I can only speak for myself, but the ones I can recommend without hesitation are Bandwagonesque, Grand Prix, and Songs From Norther Britain. Howdy is good but not as good; I haven't heard all of Thirteen, but liked what I heard. I can't speak intelligently on the rest, but the fi...

Was that an accidental side effect of The Smashing Pumpkins? Or did I miss an intervening link?

I would spare the Talking Heads branch if only to keep the Stop Making Sense movie and CD. Wonderful...

I'm so cynical right now... I used to be a "get out the vote" kind of guy until yesterday; now I have a new motto: STUPID PEOPLE SHOULDN'T VOTE!! If the ones who previously didn't vote are the same fucktards who elected the Tea Party knuckleheads, I really wish they had stayed home. And no...

Damn, all the great soul singers are passing on. And Solomon was either the subject of or was a teller of great stories about the early days of soul. God Bless Mr. Burke; thanks for all the great music.

Eagles: I don't hate them. I think that despite their at-times tepid music, they did create some music that endures. "Pretty Maids All In A Row" is a classic; as is "In The City". And yes, I have a strong pro-Joe Walsh bias. The rest is bland and generic, but not really hate-wort...
