The Weekly Playlist – Oct. 3 to Oct. 9

What started as a just few rock bands ended with a Saturday rush of music that helped fill out the week with a broader scope of music. Two, maybe three obvious rock bands, arguably one falls more in line with pop rock but still a rock band and the other I’m not so sure about anymore. Two different genres fell into play thanks to Amazon music.

  1. Rush (various songs)

See if you notice a pattern in these songs. Expect a forthcoming Rush post.

  1. Everyday Glory
  2. La Villa Strangiato
  3. Cygnus X-1
  4. Natural Science
  5. Countdown
  6. Available Light
  7. The Garden
  8. Working Man
  9. In the End
  10. Something for Nothing
  11. Between the Wheels
  1. Eclipse – Wired (album)

What a new album by this, unbeknownst to me, veteran rock band from Sweden. Reminiscent of the 80s but yet thoroughly modern. Wired received a rare “A” grade and perhaps in the coming weeks it might not fully hold up but as I played each song again and again I enjoyed it more and more.

  1. Yes – The Quest (album)

The new album by the veteran prog rockers was a rough listen. The Quest opened with one of their best songs and immediately went down hill. It received a rare “C” grade only because the opening and closing tracks prevented an even lower grade.

  1. Jimmy Eat World – Surviving (album)

Tentative plans to see Jimmy Eat World next week and I don’t think they toured Surviving but the three hour drive and the expensive of a hotel stay may prevent this.

  1. Selena – (various songs)

Not by choice. Not that I don’t like Selena it’s that my wife tends to play Selena through the government spy, I mean Alexa when she’s cleaning or working in the kitchen and after a while it’s enough already. I expressed as much which prompted a switch to…

  1. Neil Diamond – (various songs)

Neil Diamond plays a large part of my childhood music. Not my choice as my parents played him all the time, but today I remember and listen rather fondly. I saw him a few years ago and my concert review turned into my biggest article ever. It was then I realized a lot of readers don’t necessarily want just a total review of a concert but also a story behind the music from the writer.

  1. Loving the new Eclipse! And yeah, I can see the hesitation on Jimmy Eat World as traveling for shows is really pricey. The shows are already pricey enough, but tack on travel cost and yowzer!!

  2. The pattern for RUSH is that its RUSH lol. Yesterday I was spinning Side 1 of Power Windows. What a great album.
    True the backstory sometimes is the best thing about the review. As a reader I prefer to read that kinda thing.
