"Till Victory" rocks. So does "Rock N Roll N****r", but it's a tough sell in these PC times. It was hilarious to watch Patti introduce her performance of "Rock N Roll N****r" at her RRHOF induction as a song her mom requested..."the one I do my vacuuming to..."

A little bit - mostly the keyboards, but there's a similar feel to the choruses in general. "Maneater" wasn't exactly a personal favorite, and likewise this isn't my favorite Kasabian song. Their debut was fantastic but I haven't heard anything at that level from them since.

You're probably thinking of the ChangesOne and ChangesTwo albums, which had different covers.

(Feb 21, 2008 - 12:45)
I'm enjoying this group more and more. First bought one song, then two more, and I'm now waking up singing snippets of two others I want to buy. (Should have just bought the album)
Yes, I hear some eighties in there, but the guitar tweaks it away from those sounds I grew up with (was that only thirty years ago? ahem). And the vocalist goes from gritty (like gravel in his throat) to angelic. Interesting.
Check out 'No Ending', and 'Wanderlust'.
I highly recommend buying this album if you like all of those songs. The songwriting quality is consistently high: IMO only "Stay Where You Are" only falls short of the usual mark due to the (over)use of some intrusive production effects. Their second album is quite different - more electronics, less guitar pop - and is a "try before you buy" item if you like this style.

The Beatles are so overrated, especially in their Sgt. Pepper's - White Album era. It's just whiny crap; but everyone's so damn nostalgic; objectivity is gone.
Hey Jude is another beauty.
I'll take the onslaught.
Much of this is overrated from today's POV, but it's still enjoyable and not all that whiny except when Lennon decides to sing through his nose (see: "Lucy in the Sky").
If you were there, I suppose it's hard to be objective, as most people just hadn't heard anything like this before. But I wasn't there.
This may be their most influential album, but it wasn't their best. I'll take most anything off Revolver or Abbey Road (with the notable exceptions of "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" or "Octopus' Garden") over this anytime.

The version of this song from the "Tommy" film soundtrack is much better. This version seems lifeless after hearing that one.

|Beck - Missing|
(May 24, 2007 - 08:10)
Love some songs, don't like some songs as much. But what I like about him is that every time I hear a new song by him, I have no clue it is him. Every song, at least to me, sounds completely different. It's crazy how many different styles he has.
Really? I identified this as Beck pretty quickly, and I'd never heard this before. The combination of this rhythm and orchestration is a dead give away when he's in his Mutations / Sea Change mode, as is Beck's voice.
This particular style of his usually puts me in the right frame of mind, though the Mellow Gold / Odelay / everything but the kitchen sink type material just doesn't connect.

Penn Jillette said something in an interview (the details of which, I'll skip) about 2 kinds of people, Springsteen fans, and Dylan fans, and I guess I'm the latter. :(
I can't imagine why liking Dylan and Springsteen would seem unusual to anyone - they're probably my two favorite artists - but then again I've never had any use for Penn Jillette and his smarmy antics. That guy is like Michael Richards with magic tricks.
This song, however, is genius. Nobody captures the joy, excitement and uncertainty of soon to be lost youth like Springsteen did back in the 70s.

Go purchase her first 2 albums. They're different from the rest (and excellent too). Then decide if you want the rest. Don't miss the smaller pieces by grabbing a greatest hits.
I would definitely recommend picking up her first album first - personally I saw Solitude Standing as a holding pattern and not a terribly interesting one. Later SV is hit or miss. I loved 99.9F, but lots of people jumped the ship with that one.

Really, I think a lot of it is about disappointment...I'm among those who can't get past the chasm between the great stuff they did at IRS and now... We hate most that which we once loved. It's a thin line between love and hate, etc.
Have you sat down and listened to Automatic for the People in its entirety? It's really best appreciated as an album, and hearing individual songs on the radio doesn't really do justice to it as a work of art. Though I share your early-REM bias to a sizable degree and flat out refuse to listen to any of their recent drum-machine electronica, I'd suggest that ATFP stacks up rather nicely against any of their IRS catalog if you give it the time to sink in.
Personally I enjoy Monster as well, but that's a tougher listen and requires setting aside a few more prejudices.
|Franz Ferdinand - Take Me Out|

Why writing that this song is from Let it Be?
Not the same version.
Too bad - I much prefer the production on the Let It Be version. Despite the criticism that's been heaped on that production, I think it gives the song a wonderfully airy, uplifting feeling. That being said, this song is virtually impossible to ruin, especially when the Beatles are doing it.
|J.J. Cale & Eric Clapton - When This War Is Over|
(Jan 12, 2007 - 11:03)
|Pairing J.J. Cale with Clapton seems pretty redundant, particularly considering that neither one is a good enough singer to warrant double tracking. And the song's kinda boring, but with these guys I suppose that's redundant too.|
|Delays - Nearer Than Heaven|

|Bruce Cockburn - Night Train|
(Dec 21, 2006 - 10:19)
This is probably Bruce's best album, and that's saying a lot. Almost every song is amazing. If you're looking to buy one Bruce CD, try this, "Humans", or "Dancing in the Dragon's Jaws", which is a more acoustic, folky affair. "Stealing Fire" ain't bad, either.
Depends on the listener's taste really. This album seems to emphasize BC's world music and jazz sides, though a couple songs (like this) rock nicely. If folk is more to your taste, Humans and Dancing are better choices. And though Stealing Fire rocks pretty straightforwardly (and is probably tied with Dancing for my favorite BC disc), the production will turn off many people who despised the 80s.
|The Cure - Pictures of You|
(Dec 21, 2006 - 10:04)
This is THE Cure for me. Wish Robert would'nt have sold it out to be commercial...Trivializes the song a bit for everyone. Hate when artists tag their art to to products just to make a friggin buck.

Agreed. This is from the Watermark album, her first real success and a great listen all the way through. She's been pretty much repeating herself since then, with less effect, hence the lousy reputation.
|Crowded House - Weather With You|
(Dec 06, 2006 - 13:23)
If you don't hear this album as transcendly accomplished, creative, melodic, inspired and rare, then you should not be allowed to listen to music.

|Yes - And You And I|
(Dec 06, 2006 - 12:35)

Probably because strong melodies were always the first order of business with the Moodies, rather than instrumental and compositional virtuosity.

|Led Zeppelin - In The Light|
(Sep 11, 2006 - 12:25)
I've said before that Rolling Stones is the most overrated band in history, and I still stand by that, but I should qualify it thusly: Led Zeppelin is so overrated it requires an entirely different scale devoted solely to itself.
I hesitate to tar any band, except perhaps Dave Matthews, with such a broad brush. Surely there are numerous Zeppelin (and Stones) songs that are mind-numbingly overrated and overplayed, but this isn't one of them. Better to save your vitriol for true cretin-rock like "Black Dog" and "Start Me Up".
|Tom Petty - Down South|
(Aug 23, 2006 - 13:58)

|Nick Drake - Hazey Jane|

(Aug 23, 2006 - 11:52)
Class, compare and contrast. Bruce Springsteen: knows only a few chords. Wouldn't recognize a true guitar solo if it bit him. Lousy singing.
Los Lobos: true talent. Complex music and chord structure. Blistering guitar solos. Truly fine singing.
Yes - what does the quality of the song necessarily have to do with the technical ability of the musician? Springsteen has never been about chops but rather about songwriting and the ability to connect emotionally with his audience. If he doesn't reach you on an instinctive level, you'll probably never get him.
|Los Lobos - Shoot Out The Lights|
(Aug 23, 2006 - 11:43)

|Modest Mouse - Ocean Breathes Salty|
(Aug 03, 2006 - 11:07)
I'm convinced that anyone who doesn't like Modest Mouse is simply not musically evolved or is too lazy to really listen and discover the brilliance here. It's closed minded and simplistic to reject this music. To me, it's like a child who grimaces when he/she tastes beer for the first time-simply not mature enough to appreciate it yet.
I've listened all the way through and it appears that I still haven't evolved. Ordinarily I'd want to stick my head in the oven right about now, but it seems so much easier to give this a 2 and move on.

(Aug 02, 2006 - 08:32)
I've been enjoying everything RP has been playing from this album. I'll have to go get it. I really dig the album art, too - does anyone have any idea if it depicts an actual legend or story, or is it just random?
I highly recommend this CD if you like anything RP's played from it. The songwriting and arrangements are consistently great all the way through, and there's something so magical about Neko's voice on this.
I have no idea about the artwork, though.
|Los Lobos - Kiko and the Lavender Moon|

|Sophie Zelmani - Going Home|
(Jun 02, 2006 - 21:29)
The intro sounded like some boring muzak, but it picked up with the vocals, and turned out to be quite enjoyable. Never heard of Sophie Zelmani before, but hopefully we'll hear a bit more here on RP.
On a side note... her voice kind of reminds me of Jewel.
I was really starting to groove on this song, then I read that comparison and everything almost went to hell. Almost.

Actually Lucinda's first album was Ramblin' and I believe it was released back in 1978. By the end of 1992 I believe she had four albums out and none of them were titled Grace. One of these albums - the self titled one - is a must-have if you like Lucinda at all.

|Another overrated hippie who might be able to sing his way out of a paper bag if he weren't stoned all the time. But we'll never know.|
|John Lennon - Give Me Some Truth|
(Mar 31, 2006 - 12:48)
|This song has always sounded like a tape loop to me...same nail hammered over and over, just like Lennon always did in his solo career. I wasn't around to experience whatever cultural impact the man had way back when and so I only have the music itself to go on. Apart from the presumed context this just strikes me as mediocre, nothing that would rate attention had Lennon not shown much more talent while in the Beatles. A 5 if I ever heard one.|
|Jane's Addiction - Jane Says|
(Sep 09, 2005 - 12:00)
|This, to me, defines what a "5" is all about. Just nothing to get hopped up about either way.|
|Ryan Adams - Let it Ride|
(Sep 09, 2005 - 11:57)
Wow-- He sure dropped off the radar, didn't he? I wonder why?
His downfall seems to be that he has begun to write an enormous amount of material in a short period of time but has forgotten how to separate the wheat from the chaff. Some of his career decisions also seem more driven by spiting the record company than by good music - almost the entirety of Rock N Roll, for one egregious example. But I do enjoy an awful lot of what's on the new album even if it's all just a bit to much to digest.
|Placebo - Every You, Every Me|
(Sep 02, 2005 - 12:21)
this sounds like RUSH ,but without the BALLS.
My first thought was "80s Rush!" Considering that, to say that it lacks "balls" is redundant. I like this, though, regardless of the comparison.
|Emmylou Harris - Wrecking Ball|
(Aug 18, 2004 - 09:04)
Love this album. Love the Daniel Lanois Emmylou combination.
This is an amazing album start to finish.
Amen to that. This is one of my least favorite tracks off the CD, which makes it merely outstanding. It's impossible to say what my favorite is because there's so much great music on Wrecking Ball, but let's just say I wouldn't be upset to hear her version of Jimi Hendrix' "May This Be Love" on RP. 8)
|Diana Krall - Temptation|
(Aug 16, 2004 - 14:19)
I tend to enjoy this style of music but her voice is just rubbing me the wrong way. She seems to be overdoing it to me.
Funny, I had the opposite reaction. Jazz is hands down my least favorite genre of music, and I especially dislike the sort of pop lounge junk that Ms. Krall usually does. But this really grew on me as it played...would love to hear the Tom Waits version.
|Joan Armatrading - Show Some Emotion|
(Aug 16, 2004 - 14:12)
|Feel free to play more Joan anytime. As a matter of fact, why is "All the King's Gardens" still sitting unplayed on your server? It's time to correct that little oversight.|
|Patty Griffin - Cold As It Gets|
(Aug 16, 2004 - 10:52)
reminds me of a young Emmmylou Harris
Stylistically it reminds me of Emmylou's recent material, from Wrecking Ball onward. I am not so familiar with her early work but thought it was more traditional country and less folk/rock influenced.
Regardless, thanks to RP for playing this. I am now going to Amazon to order the CD.
|No Doubt - Bathwater|
(Aug 16, 2004 - 09:17)
I've always wanted to hate them but I just can't *sigh*
Agreed. I think it's just that I find Gwen Stefani to be an obnoxious, shameless poseur: to me she's the McDonna of alt-rock. The band has some talent and they write some nice songs (like this), though.
|Erin McKeown - The Taste of You|
(Aug 16, 2004 - 09:11)
|This sounds like it belongs in the soundtrack of some movie set in the 1920s. Couldn't we have left it there?|
|The Cure - Just Like Heaven (dizzy mix)|
(Aug 06, 2004 - 13:31)
|Gets a bottom of the barrel rating simply for trashing the most glorious piece of music the Cure ever recorded with silly production tricks.|
|Bruce Cockburn - Child of the Wind|
(Aug 06, 2004 - 13:08)
This is an incredible album. If you like this song, please check out the entire CD.
Agreed, with the single, admittedly minor qualification that "Cry of a Tiny Babe" grates on these non-Christian ears. The rest is genius, perhaps the last truly great BC album.
|Lucinda Williams - Hot Blood|
(Mar 18, 2004 - 11:40)
|A great bluesy song that was even better when I saw her play the Paradise in Boston back in 1993. Lucinda and the band stretched the tension to the point where I thought the song might break. The absolute highlight of the evening. |
|Bob Marley - Three Little Birds|
(Mar 18, 2004 - 11:31)
I think Bob Marley is overplayed on this station, and yes, I usually end up changing stations when he comes on...
It just doesn't seem to fit my tastes as well as just about everything else played.
I enjoy Bob Marley, but I tired of the Legend CD long ago. Along with Stairway to Heaven and Free Bird, these songs should be iced until, say, next century.
|Neil Young - Rockin' In The Free World|
(Jan 30, 2004 - 14:39)
|I prefer the electric version at the end of the album - appropriately, that one sounds like everything's about to come completely unhinged - but anything off Freedom is well worth hearing. Great set, BTW. |
|R.E.M. - Country Feedback (live)|
(Oct 17, 2003 - 10:30)
|Outstanding. REM, even well off the peak of their powers, can occasionally touch my soul in a way that few bands ever could. Of course, this was originally written for Out of Time back in 1991 and not for one of their recent, ill advised experiments in electronica. |
|Rolling Stones - Sympathy for the Devil|
(Oct 15, 2003 - 13:10)
the stones are classic but overrated and out of date! - please retire before more of your members die off.
I have to agree about the retirement part, but these guys - at least Keith Richards - will probably literally live forever. They've tried hard enough to kill themselves off, but they just *can't*. After WWIII, I think the only ones left will be Keith and the roaches...
|Steel Pulse - Sound System|
(Oct 15, 2003 - 10:54)
Damn, I missed this. The entire Handsworth Revolution CD was a work of genius, the pinnacle of English roots reggae. I'd love to hear more Pulse. Maybe "Prodigal Son" or "Ku Klux Klan"?
And while we're at it, how about some late seventies Aswad too?
Oops. I had this song confused with "Sound Check", which is on Handsworth. This is from Tribute to the Martyrs, the follow-up, and is on that level.
|Gomez - In Our Gun|
(Sep 05, 2003 - 11:17)
|I had given this an 8 until that truly annoying electronic riff came in at the end and knocked it down to a 4. :headshake: |
|Alanis Morissette - Utopia|
(Sep 05, 2003 - 11:07)
|This is nice. I'd mentally written Alanis off as a has-been and a one-trick pony, but now I think I may have been too quick to pass judgment. I'd like to hear more of this album. 8) |
|Peter Gabriel - Don't Give Up|
(Sep 05, 2003 - 10:58)
Whatever HAPPENED to Kate Bush?
I get the feeling she simply tired of the recording industry and trappings of celebrity (she was one in the UK at least). She'd never really intended to become a recording artist at first - she was really more into theater and performance art - but it's one of those things, lucky for us, that just happened. These days I think she spends most of her time away from it all in the countryside of England with her family.
FWIW this is one beautiful track...please more Gabriel (preferably pre-Us) and more Kate Bush!
|Tracy Chapman - All That You Have Is Your Soul|
(Sep 03, 2003 - 11:16)
|Tracy Chapman has certainly done some nice songs - whoever mentioned "Baby Can I Hold You" gets a second from me - but somehow, every time she comes on I think to myself how much I'd rather hear Joan Armatrading, her obvious influence.|
|Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here|
(Sep 03, 2003 - 10:25)
|I burned out on this entire album in my freshman year of college nearly twenty years ago. Each night in the dorms you could count on someone blasting "Wish You Were Here" from their speakers. I have not been able to listen to it since, and once again I find myself reaching for the mute...|
|Rosanne Cash - The Wheel|
(Aug 29, 2003 - 10:26)
Much better than the version used to sell tires. Nice!
Agreed...I've owned "The Wheel" since the CD came out back in 1993 or so and that tire commerical just makes me cringe. :P
That "circular" guitar riff (that's how it's credited in the liner notes!) that Steuart Smith does here is incredible.
|Lucinda Williams - 2 Kool 2 Be 4-Gotten|
(Jul 31, 2003 - 09:43)
|Why is it that this album just *bores* me? I love much of her other material - especially her self titled CD, which to me stands head and shoulders above the rest of her catalog - but the Car Wheels stuff leaves me cold. IMO one of the most overrated albums ever.|

(Jul 30, 2003 - 10:24)
|Mediocre for RT, but still nice to hear. Just saw him last weekend in Rochester...best guitarist I've ever had the pleasure of watching. If you like his stuff even a little and you get the chance to see him play live - GO.|

(Jul 30, 2003 - 07:35)
|Sorry to be a naysayer, but I just cannot get into this or most of Lennon's other later material. I just find his voice thin and grating. This song sounds to me just like his 70s output, which I despise. Yes I respect what he did for rock, but no I do not like his music since he stopped truly collaborating with McCartney. |
|AfroCelts - Seed|
(Jul 29, 2003 - 11:32)
|Sounds like a cross between Sting and Dave Matthews. Yuck. |
|Natalie Merchant - This House Is On Fire|
(Jul 29, 2003 - 10:58)
|Amazingly - considering how much I despise virtually all of this woman's work after In My Tribe - I like this a good deal. She appears to have summoned up some passion from some secret stash that was saved for just this moment. The rhythm of it is nice too. :)|
|Paul Simon - The Sound of Silence|
(Jul 29, 2003 - 10:38)
|A wonderful song and some beautiful, understated guitar work, almost ruined by Paul Simon's continued attempt at singing. Almost.|
|Kate Bush - Running Up That Hill|
(Jul 29, 2003 - 10:24)

Me too. I personally found the Hounds of Love album to be a disappointment. Kate's vocals seem muted here compared to the wondrous theatrical gymnastics that defined her early work. In the late 70s and early 80s she was unlike anyone else in rock, though if you're familiar with Sinead's Lion and the Cobra you have some sense of what I'm talking about. That being said, this is far superior to most of what was out in 1985, but mediocre in the context of Kate's canon.
Perhaps we might hear Wuthering Heights, Them Heavy People, Babooshka, or Army Dreamers?

IMHO this song is the best thing she's ever done, though it was quickly downhill from here. By the time of their next CD, Blind Man's Zoo, her pretensions and mannerisms had overtaken her ability to carry a tune.
|Yes - Roundabout|
(Jul 12, 2003 - 14:10)
|If you must play Yes - and I wouldn't be crushed if you never did again - at least have the decency to pick something that hasn't been beaten to a pulp by classic rock radio. This is about as eclectic and intelligent as Free Bird.|

Not to say that is because I'm from Minnesota as well as Prince and makes my opinion partial to him. :D
Ron, I have to disagree here. I have never found Prince's more minimalist stuff credible, including this. Patti makes a more convincing minimalist IMHO.
This is what it sounds like...when Prince whines.

I'd have to agree with the person who said "great album lousy song choice", though this is hardly bad. The two songs that bracket this on the Bloodletting CD ("Lullabye" and "Tomorrow Wendy"), though, are stunners that put this to shame.

Well it seems they have been so far. Bands are eligible for the RRHOF 25 years after their first recording AFAIK. The first Rush album was 1974, so they would have been eligible in 1999 or 2000, depending on timing.
If voters are mostly rock critics, that might explain a lot about their omission. In critical circles, it's considered cool to hate anything that smacks even a little bit of progressive rock - particularly Rush.
However it seems absurd to me to say that AC/DC belongs in the Hall but Rush does not.

(Jun 09, 2003 - 15:09)
|I love Bob Marley, but couldn't we go a little deeper than the Legend album? This is on the verge of getting really tired. Someone suggested "Natural Mystic", which I'd love to hear. How about "Heathen" (also from Exodus), "Ambush in the Night" (Survival), or just about anything from Uprising?|

Bob is still a god.

(Jun 09, 2003 - 14:22)
|Lucinda is always a welcome listen to me, and this has a nice groove.

As a first reggae album, I think this is it, even considering the unnecessary repetition of two songs at the end of the CD. The only thing that comes close is Bob Marley's "Uprising".
If you like rock and reggae, Marley's studio albums from "Kaya" through "Uprising", plus the earlier "Natty Dread", are to be recommended over "Legend". (I prefer the later material, your mileage may vary.) Unless you really need to hear "Jamming" or that Jamaica vacation theme song one more time.
