Music Rotation — 6 Oct

Posted in music at 12:08 pm by berzerkeleyan

For the week:

Espers “II” (2006)genre: Freak Folk.
Grandaddy “Under the Western Freeway” (1997)genre: Space Rock.
Hard-Fi “Once Upon A Time In The West” (2007)genre: Britpop.
The Feeling “Twelve Stops and Home” (2007)genre: Emoschlock.
Queensrÿche “Operation: Mindcrime” (1988)genre: Metal.
Queensrÿche “Operation: Mindcrime II” (2006)genre: Metal. I finally devoted multiple cycles to this album. Though not close to being as good as the first, it’s not awful. But I will write this: Every song on the original is gold (Gold, Jerry!); they all hold up very well over time (the album’s twenty years old fer crying out loud!). I’m sure I will not be able to say the same of “O:M II” twenty years from now.
Robert Plant and Alison Krauss “Raising Sand” (2007)genre: Americana.
Garbage “Version 2.0” (1998)genre: Angry Grrl.
Snow Patrol “Eyes Open” (2006)genre: Emoschlock.
Devics “Push the Heart” (2006)genre: Mouse Folk.
