Talking Music: Any Album/Any Era/Any Genre (April 2014)

It's time again for the monthly weekend feature where I pick albums from any era or genre and briefly discuss why I think they are awesome. Check out the albums I picked to talk about this month after the jump!

 You, Me, And Everyone We Know - Some Things Don't Wash Out

This is an insanely good album. The lyrics and vocals are awesome. This is also probably the most solid band YMAEWK has ever had (it was short lived). I like almost everything about this album. It's a really solid quirky pop/rock/punkish album. Almost every song on this album is good. I say almost because I enjoy every song except "James Brown Is Dead". It's gotten better with time, but I still don't love the song. Other than that I can't complain about much from this album.

Go Radio - Lucky Street

This is probably my second favorite album Jason Lancaster has appeared on (Mayday Parade's A Lesson In Romantics is my favorite). I've always liked the first track on the album and the way it starts. Lancaster brings it on the album. It has a great pop/rock vibe that borderlines pop/punk at times. The guitar work is nice.

Third Eye Blind - Third Eye Blind

This is an album that should be somewhere on anyone's best albums of all time list. It's fantastic. It’s a perfect 90's alternative rock album. I listened to this album so much way back when it came out. I was in middle school then and it's an album that has stuck with me all through adulthood. It's a nearly flawless album.

Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows - D.R.U.G.S

This is an album I've always kind of liked. I've actually found myself listening to it a lot more recently. I'm really liking the new Chiodos album and with Craig Owens back at the helm I've been listening to this a lot more and going back and listening to older Chiodos albums with him on vocals. Honestly this is a pretty good album that is one of the better things Owens has performed on.

Dixie Chicks - Wide Open Spaces

This album really has a great vibe. I like a lot of music from this era (mid-late 90s). It has a ton of really well written songs. I can't deny how when I listen to this album I just remember the singles it had and hearing them on the radio when I was a teenager. It’s a cool album. It's not something people might expect to be in my wheelhouse, but occasionally it's a neat album to listen to that takes me back. It's an album I've learned to appreciate more as I've gotten older and probably more as an interesting era album.
