Forget that last one. The (shear terror) of that mental picture is far beyond anything that you should ever have to experience. EVER. So, with no magic pill to cure my ills, I will have to do this the old fashioned way. I will have to think. (I just threw up in my mouth a little bit)
I have had a lot of time at work to do things like, not work, so I have been listening to music over the past few days, and since I am only on H,
and everybody else is finished, I think I'll critique a few of my favorite albums. and since H is the eighth letter in the alphabet, the next eight posts will include a glimpse into my musical tastes, while staying with the A to Z theme. I will try to do share with you, my eight favorite albums. These eight albums have their own special place on my iTunes and as long as I have a back up MP3 disc, they will always have said special place.
1. No Code, Pearl Jam - No Code is by far and away, my favorite Pearl Jam album. I like them all (not including the live recordings) but this one is unique. I can remember P.J. fans raising hell when this album was released. It was nothing like Ten or Versus. Eddie had gone soft. Blah, blah, blah. Upon listening to this album for the first time, I thought that it sounded more "mature" than previous records. They seemed to have accessed a completely new creative avenue. They were all growed up. They no longer needed to play loud, all of the time, but they still could, if they wanted to. They prove this with the song "Lukin" but dial it back down immediately after with "Present Time". IMO, this well crafted album gets a bum wrap. Musically, it is less harsh on your ears than other efforts and that may be the reason why it was not received as well.
(The letter H and No Code have nothing in common. The H in this post is in the title. Cheap, you say? I say yes, yes it is.)
