¡Uno! ¡Dos! ¡Tre! – A Review

16 Dec

I’m going to start this post with an apology.

First, to you, the reader. I’m sure, if you don’t know me from facebook or the U2 message board where the idea for this blog came to fruition, you came here expecting me to lambaste the band like I did on my review for 21st Century Breakdown.

Well, I’m sorry.

I’m not going to do that. I’m going to review The Trilogy without being mean, bitter, or sarcastic. So if that’s what you came for, and if that’s what you want, don’t continue reading.

Best Albums of 2009: 80-71

19 Dec

It’s begun to occur to me that the name of this blog post and those following and preceding it, is a tad misleading.  I don’t think all of these albums are particularly good, but since I already started with the name, I’m just gonna stick with it.  Anyways, carry on, shall we?  Also, the numbering on my list is already off, since I’ve added a few more albums, but I’m going to go ahead and skip those newly added albums for now and sum them all up in a post at the very end of the year, so, Onwards.

Have I Changed Or Is It The Music? (Part 1)

18 Dec

2004 was a big year for me, it was the year I officially got into music. But let’s not start there, because obviously I liked music before then I just wasn’t obsessed with it…well I kind of liked it. Let’s go back to when I was around 10 years old and I had my first concert. Now if I was some really cool person I would have seen some awesome band live but…my first band was…S Club 7.
Now I know I should be embarrassed by this but really I’m not, S Club 7 came from a time when pop music wasn’t that bad, I mean come on who can deny the awesomeness of Don’t Stop Moving?. Unsurprisingly I loved the concert, I mean I was a kid I listened to the radio I didn’t know any better. Still despite liking music I had yet to encounter an album that would change my life, you know the one you just can’t stop listening to no matter how many times you hear it?

A 21st-century breakdown of 21st Century Breakdown

14 Dec

I’m revisiting Green Day’s newest concept album (It’s not a rock opera. Tommy is a rock opera. The Wall is a rock opera. This is a concept album.) about the characters Christian and Gloria, who may or may not be extensions of Jesus of Suburbia and Whatsername from American Idiot. I’m not sure why. It probably won’t be a track-by-track review of it. I’m just sort of putting down thoughts here.
