Album Oriented 94: Beyoncé and The Who

To the left, to the left! Daniel puts his freakum dress on and offers his hot take on Beyoncé’s 2006 masterpiece, B’Day (pronounced BEE-day, not Bi-DAY). Erich presents our first “Mojo swap,” which in this early-ish episode we call a “substitute” before our branding solidifies. He does it live to present The Who’s 1970 classic, Live at Leeds. Daniel’s Mid-Year Kicker Pick from 1989 will make you think you’re back in college, wearing a nappy sweater. Or maybe not. Oh, please subscribe and give us great reviews on iTunes.

Album Oriented 95: Saturday Night Fever and Talk Talk

Erich examines that most elusive of bands, Various Artists, which debuts here on our lists with Entertainment Weekly’s #95, the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. (It’s mostly the Bee Gees, we know–let’s not discount the Trammps and KC and The Sunshine Band.) Daniel takes on NME’s #95 and explicates Talk Talk’s 1988 jazz-rock odyssey Spirit of Eden in a way we can only describe as understated and tasteful. Erich’s Mid-Year Kicker Pick from 1982-83 will enchant you and have you reaching for your lip gloss and we’ll just leave it at that.

Album Oriented 98: Queens of the Stone Age and Neutral Milk Hotel

It’s an indie rock extravaganza for the episode on our #98 entries. Dan rocks out with Queens of the Stone Age and their Songs for the Deaf (2002), from the Entertainment Weekly top 100. Erich explores Neutral Milk Hotel’s In the Aeroplane Over the Sea (1998), from NME’s top 100. Dan cheats, shamelessly, with his Mid-Year Kicker Pick from the year 2000.
