Homework of the Bowie Kind

Per my homework from the most recent episode of Mad at Dad, I’ll be listening to Bowie’s Diamond Dogs top to bottom with headphones. My assertion is that it isn’t better than the Mick Ronson era albums of the early 70s, Michael Butler’s is that it is superior. We shall see. Also on:Facebook Twitter

Darkness – Barbarians

Yesterday I listened to Michael Butler do a track by track of the new Darkness album Last of Our Kind. I liked it, I like the Darkness in general. This album is something special though. It is somewhere between a theme album and a rock opera. What do you suppose the theme would be? Well, […]

Rock and Roll Geek Scoring System

By and large, I really like Michael Butler’s Rock and Roll Geek album scoring system. He gives each song a 0, 1/2 or 1 and then adds it up and it almost always comes up with something sensible. However… I am listening to this episode where he is scoring both the new Scorpions album “Return […]
