Due to too much shit going on in the real world, Song of the Day and Great American Songbook Song of the Day are on hiatus until June 25. Thanks
Sorry for the week off. I was at a conference and didn’t have time to do the song of the day posts. Hopefully will get them lined up again starting tomorrow.
I’ve been reading a lot of album reviews lately. Some reviewers nee critics concentrate on accurately their impressions of the music and it’s affect upon them. But man, are there a lot of reviewers who write in a way as to show how many names they can compare someone to.
Now, I’ll grant that that might be useful for a particular kind of reader. But, it’s tiresome to read, if you aren’t that kind of reader. And I think, kind of lazy. It’s also less informative than if they had just described their own reaction to the music.
I’m running out of time and these new Release lists take forever to compile. So, I’m not going to. I’m going to send you to Album of the Year, where they do a better job than I do anyway. New Releases are here.
