On each episode of this music podcast, we pick an album and discuss it song by song, including background information about the band, the making of the album, and how we all discovered it in the first place. We're opinionated and passionate, so there is plenty of both discord and rhyme. You'll find lots of rock here, but also funk, R&B, hip-hop, jazz, and maybe even a symphony or two.
||Clean009: Janet Jackson - Control (1986)||We’re sorry, Miss Jackson. For nearly two decades, Janet Damita Jo Jackson was one of the world’s most reliable hitmakers, but her reign came to a complete halt after the Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show and its infamous “wardrobe malfunction.”||10/16/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean008 (feat. Dave Weigel): Todd Rundgren - A Wizard, a True Star (1973)||Discord & Rhyme is excited to welcome its first guest co-host!

||Clean007: Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Emerson, Lake and Palmer (1970)||In Prog John’s first go-around as host, the Discord and Rhyme crew (John, Amanda, Mike, and Dan) turn their attention to the debut album of Emerson, Lake & Palmer, an album and band that everyone in this episode agrees is far better than consensus cri||9/18/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean006: Aretha Franklin - I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You (1967)||Do we really need to introduce Aretha Franklin? Undisputedly the best soul singer around — perhaps the best singer, period — her string of massive hits and modern classics is longer than some other artists’ entire careers. Her voice is so recogniz||9/4/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean005: Dave Matthews Band - Under the Table and Dreaming (1994)||Everybody go put on your sundresses over babydoll t-shirts and turn your baseball caps backward, because this is a mid-’90s party!

||Explicit003: Ween - The Mollusk (1997)||We're talking about Ween today, so listener beware: Here be dragons, also salty language. For his first outing as host, Phil Maddox leads his co-hosts through New Hope, PA, alternative rock duo Ween’s highly idiosyncratic and mildly sophomoric 1997 re||7/24/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean002: The Moody Blues - On the Threshold of a Dream (1969)||In Episode 2, we talk about an album all four of us know by heart and love passionately: On the Threshold of a Dream, the third album by the Moody Blues.

||Clean001: Earth, Wind & Fire - All 'N All (1977)||For the inaugural episode of Discord & Rhyme, host Rich Bunnell uses EWF’s 1977 release All ‘n All to illustrate that EWF were far more than a playlist’s worth of hit singles. All ‘n All is the arguable peak of an incredible run of late-’70s a||6/26/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
Music nerdom to the max
If you want to listen to a bunch of music aficionados geeking out hard—and unpretentiously—over some fun albums, which you may or may not already be familiar with, this show will be your jam.
Lots of fun in a very geeky way
Two episodes in and I think I'm hooked. These guys know their stuff but they're not at pretentious about (except when being pretentious about it becomes funny).
