:yes:

I took probably a 15 year break from them after Pretty Fly. Anytime their future work crept into my eardrums, nails on a chalkboard. I think hearing Nitro on one of many re-watches of Varsity Blues after internet radio became a thing is what finally got me to queue up Smash again. It's since become a once-a-monther, but everything after is strictly off limits.

I heard 'Defy You' twice on Sirius yesterday. Turned it up both times :shrug:

We're already accused of East Coast bias. 30 minute clock or 3itc, opinions?

I'd vote for 3ITC. If the clock is off, it'll lag whether it's an hour or a half hour. 3ITC can theoretically keep it moving any time.

Round 19 Dirt Farmer - Levon Helm (2007)

One of my regrets is only finding out about this guy's Saturday evening concerts in the barn in upstate NY after he died. His voice is deteriorating at this point but I don't believe there's ever been so much emotion conveyed with a vocal performance than on this record. This may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I find it absolutely stirring.

Yield was my huckleberry all along.. it's like if you took all the Pearl Jam albums and averaged them out..

Plenty of cheating opportunities available, also hundreds of live releases

That's what I was referring to.  Probably go this way.

19.32 Endtroducing by DJ Shadow (1996)

The first album created entirely from samples. It set a new standard for hip-hop production and beautifully fuses hip-hop, electronic and jazz.

Levon's throat cancer weakened his voice (like John Prine's cancer on his neck weakened his), but you can still hear him in there. His midnight rambles were famous. Wish I could have attended one. Did catch him at Merlefest back in '08.  I didn't tape that. That woman in the band is his daughter.

Okay for the spreadsheet, I've set it up so that if the artist field:

  • contains the word skip it will highlight in yellow
  • contains the word clock (as in ten minute clock) it will highlight in orange
  • contains "ITC" it will highlight in blue

Spreadsheet updaters don't have to do anything different, it should happen automatically. Hopefully this makes it easier to track where we are with increased skips.

Eva Cassidy-Fields of Gold-  never listened to her or this song before, great voice but a little too mellow to work to- 7

Round 19 - Sturgill Simpson - Sound & Fury (2019)

A ‘country’ artist creating something that is somewhere between sleazy synth-rock dance and boogie glam disco-funk. I tried staying away from this record because I can’t pick two songs off it. I can’t listen to a track or two on this album; I hear one cut and I need to go back to Ronin and listen to all 41 minutes of it in order. But now that I thought about it that’s exactly why I need to pick it. I think this is worth being my first double-dip. And I'll add two songs to comply with the draft rules, but I don't have to be happy about it. Seriously, listen to the whole thing.

19.35 Guero – Beck (2005)

Compared to a lot of ya'll, I am not really an album person. I am more of a playlist person. And, if I am feeling crazy, a playlist on shuffle person.

But this album is one that I have listened to probably into the hundreds of times, start to finish. It's a Beck album, so there are lots of zigs and zags stylistically. I don't absolutely adore every single song, but every song works, especially together. Both "E-Pro" and "Girl" were pretty big songs off this album, and I like them both, but I picked a couple other favorites for the playlist. Both of the songs I picked are multi-layered and textured in a way that is hard to fully appreciate unless you at least a little high. 

Songs:

Missing

Earthquake Weather

 

ETA: I should mention Beck put out Guerolito the same year. It was alternative versions and remixes of all the same songs in the same order. It was a great idea, but it didn't work as well for me, because I found most of the remixes were just not as good, to my ear.

I'm assuming @cosjobs it still a skip because the sheet says he is, so it's you again @simey on the flippity.

Also, if anyone wants to change their skip/clock status, let me know today and I'll update. This is a bit of an experiment, if it goes too fast, we'll have to go to two a days or something but I would really not prefer that.

Megadeth - Rust In Peace (1990)

Love the rhythm section on this one. Constantly shifting and galloping with a swagger rare in metal albums. The guitars are putting on a clinic but it's all in good fun (as are Dave's cartoon villain vocals). 

Holy Wars... The Punishment Due

Hangar 18

Best album of 1990.  A music draft of that year would be interesting

Round 20 Get Behind Me Satan - White Stripes (2005)

I need to have Jack White on my Island and luckily this happens to be my favorite White Stripes album - which is obviously not the consensus since 4-5 are already gone.

Blue Orchid

My Doorbell

My favorite also.  Was hoping to get it.  My list has been tore up by everyone of late.

I love Little Ghost too

Round 20, Velvet Revolver - Contraband (2003)

It was probably due to timing more than anything, but I was feeling a little sleazy after taking Sound & Fury for a spin. Then @simey dipped toes into the STP pool. And this just happened to be next on the to-do list. And if this doesn’t give you your sleaze fix then you’re too clean cut for me. Cause this is what would happen if the non-Axl members of GnR had made a follow-up to Appetite. Eat my ###, Illusion.

19 - The Commitments - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (1991)

I loved this move way back when, it's the story of the rise and fall of a Dublin soul band. Haven't watched it in a while, probably should before taking the soundtrack with me to the island. The lead singer has a great voice as well as the woman who sings lead on some songs.

1. Mustang Sally
2. Take Me to the River
3. Chain of Fools
4. The Dark End of the Street
5. Destination Anywhere
6. I Can't Stand the Rain
7. Try a Little Tenderness
8. Treat Her Right
9. Do Right Woman, Do Right Man"
10. Mr. Pitiful
11. I Never Loved a Man
12. In the Midnight Hour
13. Bye Bye Baby
14. Slip Away
