Round 19.38 - 8 Mile - OST (2002)

Lose Yourself - Eminem

Rabbit Run - Eminem

Round - 20.03 - N.W.A. - Straight Outta Compton (1988)

Express Yourself

8 Ball

Two more landmarks for the island. 8 Mile hit large in the early aughts, Straight Outta was around

How'd these last so long? Oh yeah. I'm the only guy taking rap.

 

I was honestly thinking of taking that N.W.A. just because it was ridiculous it was still out there.

It's the cussing.  I can't take these because of the playlist.  I would have taken this LONG ago if so.  Others too.  Great pick.

I was sort of deferring to other people lest my island become a greatest hits island and not a personalized one. I figure with this many rounds I can split the difference. I don't have that many more to draft, anyway.

Put me on auto skip for a couple of days. I know this sounds wimpy and self pity. But I had planted an oak tree in Pre-K after a brief scare that put me in the hospital. My neighbors had it removed without any consultation yesterday. I am just bummed. Sorry.

I'd be fit to be tied. What is wrong with people? I'm sorry that happened.

The last two rounds I have almost taken this. It's a great album.

Lots of great R.E.M. taken already, but I'm reasonably happy to get this one.

21.25 - R.E.M. - Document (1987)

Finest Worksong

It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)

Do I win a longest song title award?

I was hoping to grab this one later.  An underrated album from them but one of my favorites.

So where is Buffaloes position in the draft, and where is Raging Weasles? 

They took Doug (21.20) and Oliver (21.24) spots basically mid draft.

Any time you can trade two guys for multiple buffaloes and weasels, you have to consider it a win.

One of my favorites, and I went ahead and took now because you never know who else might also think it's underrated!

PICK 21.21

ROXY MUSIC - AVALON (1982)

Songs

- More Than This

- Avalon

I am a big early Roxy Music fan but this album is much closer to Bryan Ferry's move to his solo career sound.  I could listen to these two songs over and over.  The whole album is awesome.

Round 20: Allman Brothers - Live at Ludlow Garage: 1970

From wiki: Live at Ludlow Garage: 1970 is an album by the Allman Brothers Band. It was recorded live at Ludlow Garage in Cincinnati in April 11, 1970. It was released by Polydor Records on April 20, 1990.  

While this album is pretty raw and unrefined, I kind of like it that way, and I definitely need some ABB on my island.  I'll save the spotify listeners from the 44 minute version of Mountain Jam.

Tracklist:

1. Dreams
2. Statesboro Blues
3. Trouble No More
4. Dimples
5. Every Hungry Woman
6. I'm Gonna Move To The Outskirts Of Town
7. Hoochie Coochie Man
8. Mountain Jam

That sucks wazoo.

I'm in a ####ty mood today too. First day back to work and it's ####### mayhem out there. The local Walmart was a gongshow. No masks anywhere. If we're going to just say #### it and open everything back up, do that then, I guess. At least then I could go get a beer with my friends at the pub.

LCD Soundsystem - American Dream

(2017)

 

will update with songs and write up in a bit

Had to get James Murphy on the island. And it's probably a minority opinion, but depending on the day this might be my fav of the lot. Maybe. I don't know. It's not the groundbreaking drop of self titled or SOS. And it doesn't have some of the charisma and charm of cuts like Pow Pow, but it's basically a sublime aggregate of 80sish-ish sounds and nods mixed with electro-whatever and Murphy's usual dry wit and self consciousnesses that hits the right spot for me. The guitar sound in Change Yr Mind that I'm pretty sure I've heard before but I can't place it is summed up by Murphy's quote, "Borrowed nostalgia for the unremembered eighties." The build up and drop in Murphy's almost-10 minute long diss track How Do you Sleep (Tempted to put this epic on the playlist but I will hold off since it's got an ancestor in Dance Yrslf Clean on it) sucked me in and then the rest of the album kept me there.

It's been out long enough to breath and fully digest, and it's still the one I put on rotation more than the rest. At least for now. Snagging it in round 21 is nice.

Change Yr Mind

As one who has occasionally kvetched about slow pace, I'm finding it hilarious right now and have to compliment the team on kicking draft ### (and mine) today.
