Makes my end of the week commute worth looking forward to.

Great overall, except...

The new Tool album is amazing, and they both thought it was crap. We’re talking about an album that has 5 absolutely incredibly written songs that are each over ten minutes long, but manage to make you think they are too short. The lyrics take on topics such as aging, the domino effect of nations falling to far right governments, and environmentalism. I’m not the type of person to like music because it’s complex, but the playing is absolutely virtuosic. It may not be 10,000 Days, but it’s a logical step forward in their sound, and is an amazingly cohesive album.
I normally love this podcast, but this is a definite oversight of pure artwork. Tool will never be called commercial, and that is a good thing.

My Go-To During Quarantine

I'm a longtime fan of this show but now I'm going back to the start and listening to some of the ones I missed or don't remember well. I like the theme shows best - Cover Songs, First Impressions, Movie Music, etc. Jim and Greg are less combative then their models Siskel and Ebert and their friendly chemistry works well over the airwaves. They are both accomplished music writers and you can tell they love their subject (except for Jim's tireless work to expose R. Kelly). Great job, boys!
