Podcast for classic rock albums!

If you're in to classic rock albums like me, then this is definetely the podcast for you. Lots of great insight!

Great perspective

I am excited for a podcast that features three sharp women music critics delving into classic popular music. I’ve only heard the first episode and already I can see how this departs from what has been the norm. Fricke, Wenner, Christgau, Pareles, etc. have all had their say, and I’ll cast no aspersions on them, but I’m hungry for this. I’ve lived fifteen years with a sharp woman and having her perspective on culture has been amazing, but sadly she has no interest in this kind of music.

Update: The perspective is back to the expected with the new host. Nothing new here anymore. Boring. I was willing to forgive the Sony-linked commercialism for a fresh perspective, but no longer.

Skip it

The More Blood box has brought out some great new thinking and old stories about the recording process and material on that album, but none of it is here. I assume these are good writers (and at least one real artist) but the commentary is neither informed nor insightful, and there's more than a heap of pretentious pondering. Episode 4 is the only one I'd recommend as Jeff Slate had some real access and stories. Looking for stimulating discussion on this great album? Search elsewhere.
