let's get this over with appreciation post!!!!
WHAT A BOP
OH MAN CAN WE SPECIFICALLY TALK ABOUT THE...I THINK IT'S A MELLOTRON IN THE CHORUS
IT'S JUST??? SO FUCKING GOOD???
...honestly i don't have much of substance to say about it beyond "it's good af" but. it's good af.
the current low stakes playlist is the original versions of songs tmbg has covered!!
it’s already surreal and i’m only one song in
so the tmbg friend group i’m in is doing an album of the week thing and i think i’m gonna do that in here too!! lemme write up the first one c:
ALBUM OF THE WEEK #1
Album: Artificial Heart
Artist: Jonathan Coulton
Artificial Heart is, in my humble opinion, JoCo’s best album. From the upbeat-sounding opener, Sticking It To Myself, to the fairly silly closer, The Stache, this album is just wall-to-wall bops—more “serious” than his earlier work, but never losing his nerdy sensibilities.
Top tracks: Sticking It To Myself; Nemeses; Today With Your Wife; Glasses; Good Morning Tuscon
ALBUM OF THE WEEK #2
Album: I Like Fun
Artist: They Might Be Giants
Most bands don’t release 20 albums, and most bands that do lose their spark eventually. This cannot be said of TMBG, whose first album of three to be released in 2018, I Like Fun, is one of their best works—and more than 30 years after the release of their first album! While darker in lyrical tone than much of their more recent work, I Like Fun never stops being...well, fun, and I can guarantee that half these tracks will get stuck in your head for weeks.
Top tracks: Let’s Get This Over With; All Time What; Mrs. Bluebeard; Push Back The Hands; Last Wave
(yes i know this is late shhhhh)
happy 25th birthday to john henry by tmbg aka the greatest album of all time!! to celebrate, i urge you to give it a listen!!!
