Well, it only took me twelve years. I have finally finished my quest to re-listen to my entire CD collection. This really didn't need to take more than decade, but in the middle of the process I decided to start reviewing each CD individually. After a while the thought of having to type a new review if I listened to a disc would discourage me from continuing. I finally gave up somewhere in compilations. The world doesn't need to know that each of the eight or so Back from the Grave compilations sounds pretty much like all the other ones. On top of that, there was an excursion into my vinyl collection in which I ripped all my 45s and then started in on my LPs too. Who knew listening to music was such hard work.
CD is an abbreviation for compact disc. I have a lot of CDs and I like to write about them occasionally.
This is becoming the Robert's CD collection blog these days. Oh well, gives me something to do. I'm considering going a little more typical-bloggy with this site. We shall see.
Okay, I'm a bit backlogged with these micro reviews, so let us continue, shall we...
- Devo - Now it Can Be Told
- Despite being recorded during the waning years of Devo, this live album is actually pretty great. They even make the bad Total Devo tracks seem almost good.
- Devo - Smooth Noodle Maps
- Devo's last release is okay. I bit more consistant than Total Devo. But still nothing close to their glory days.
Happy New Year! My overview of my entire CD collection continues.
My overview of my entire CD collection continues. Lots and lots of Cabaret Voltaire!
The past year or so I have been an iPod owner and have not paid much attention to my wall o' CDs. Well, the same songs are popping up just a bit too often during shuffle, and I thought it would be a fresh change of pace if I started popping in a good old CD every now again. To make sure not to miss anything, I decided to pull the CDs down for listening in alphabetical order. I happened to be listening to Big Sandy and the Fly-rite Boys when I made this monumental decision, so that's where I started.
