The Weekly Playlist – Sept. 12 to Sept. 18

A pretty good week of listening to music and from a wide variety (I think) including one I had never heard and will never listen to again. The Weekly Playlist works, now in the third installment, as much of these I likely would have not listened to. If you’re wondering what I mean by this, go back to the start.

  1. Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band – Trout Mask Replica (Album)

Who needs waterboarding when you have this album from Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band?

2Loud2Old Music (fellow music writer) reviewed this, poor guy, and actually listened to Trout Mask Replica more than once. I gave each song a partial listen as I didn’t bother wasting my time on this mess.

  1. REO Speedwagon – Various Songs

I needed some ear candy after Captain Beefheart and REO Speedwagon has generally been a go-to for something awesomely melodic.

  1. Joey Meador – Come to be (Album)

I reviewed local artist Joey Meador a few months ago and his EP Come to Be also brought some sweet melodies.

  1. Hootie & the Blowfish – Losing My Religion (song)

A friend asked if I had heard this. Turns out Hootie’s version of the R.E.M. classic “Losing My Religion” appears on last year’s Imperfect Circle which I reviewed. There must have been some extended release version of the album I missed. Not bad, but it did not measure up to the original.

  1. Iron Maiden – Senjutsu (album)

An album as long as most movies. The new Iron Maiden is extremely ambitious and probably requires an extensive amount of spins to fully enjoy.

  1. Coldplay – Mylo Xyloto (album)

I just wanted to hear “Paradise” but I listened to much of the album. Coldplay has a new record coming and hopefully it returns to more of this mostly gem of a release.

  1. Chris Isaak – Pandemic Blues: I Can’t Take It! (song)

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I pressed play on Chris Isaak’s new single but “Pandemic Blues: I Can’t Take It!” not only speaks for a lot of us but in a light-hearted and fun way. Above all, the song shows Chris Isaak hasn’t lost a step vocally or musically. A great listen.

  1. TobyMac – Promised Land (song)

A beautiful song released yesterday by TobyMac with a message that should reach the masses.

  1. Daughtry – Dearly Beloved (album)

What an impressive sixth album from the former American Idol contestant. Fully 15 years removed from the show, I finally listened to and reviewed a Daughtry album and now need to check out the rest and place them on the live show radar.

  1. Anti-Beefheart! lol Thanks for taking the bullet on that one Andrew. lol. Maiden is a huge listen but at 82 minutes it does require a few listens. I like these recaps great stuff!

    1. ok, that’s it! have a good night and be sure to tip your waitress. glad it made you laugh! that’s all I was going for.

  2. I didn’t know “Losing My Religion” was an R.E.M. song! I first heard it on ‘Glee,’ strange! My copy of ‘Senjutsu’ arrived this past week and I need to give it another listen.
