My internal deliberations to put this website to bed tends to come undone with a new idea.
Ironically, I don’t listen to music all that much just those albums I review, whether old or new releases, and when concerts were a thing, I’d dive into albums of the coming feature.
Yesterday, after listening to several albums I thought, why not a weekly music round-up or some type of list of those bands I listened to and the individual songs and/or albums. Thus, Weekly Playlist was born. Then I thought it was stupid. Then I thought, maybe it would be cool. Then, dumb idea. So, I slept on it.
With the start of a new month, I decided to give the Weekly Playlist a go for the rest of the year. Hopefully, I’ll remember to post every Saturday! But one reason I decided on this venture is to force me to listen to more music. I have found when I do make an active effort, I miss it and music truly does soothe the soul.
The Weekly Play list will be a basic list with maybe small commentary but nothing to take too much of your time. So, I give you The Weekly Playlist for the week of August 29 – September 4, 2021:
- Rush – Roll the Bones (album)
September 3 marked the 30th anniversary of Roll the Bones. I reviewed it last year, not wanting to wait another year for a more appropriate review for the 30th. Roll the Bones is the first Rush album I have deliberately listened to since Neil Peart died.
- Imagine Dragons – Mercury – Act 1 (album)
Imagine Dragons fifth studio album, Mercury – Act 1, came out on the 30th anniversary of Roll the Bones. Just thought I’d mention it. The release has nothing to do with Rush, but I reviewed it.
- Duran Duran – Astronaut (album)
It was in the car.
- Duran Duran – Anniversary (single)
Duran Duran’s newest single release off their forthcoming album Future Past. I reviewed the first two singles but passed on this one and likely will on the expected fourth release. Expect a review of the album though.
That’s it. Next week should be much longer with less words!
