Caught a few minutes/songs of...
« on: December 11, 2020, 09:34:11 PM »
I don't know if this will stick, but the concept of catching a few minutes (of a song/album) or songs (of an album) is much more prevalent to me in music than it is in movies. I don't listen to the duration of the vast majority of albums that I start. Only the few artists I love get the benefit of the doubt. Besides that, you have to capture me in the first third, or have gotten such intensely great reviews that I feel I have to listen to your stuff through at least once.

Anyway, kick it off...

Bob Dylan's Rough and Rowdy ways...is something I feel like I should be reading. The first 3.3 songs are fairly monotonous, musically-speaking.

The Mountain Goats' In League with Dragons is something I need to continue with. Features Owen Pallett. First song is of course an epic, and I was in traffic during it.

Caught a track of (all caps) Will This Make Me Good by Nick Hakim, came up once I finished one of the Sault albums, and whatever I heard was fire. It's about time the world ditched the plodding R&B slow jams and neo-soul and got with a more boisterous, funky soul vibe. (Now to go gush about Sault in the main music thread).
