Good idea, needs more research

I really like the idea for the podcast, going through the 1001 albums book, but these guys say so many inaccurate things throughout these episodes. Really needs to be better researched.

Awful

Thought I’d check out their episode on “blonde on blonde” and their idiocy was too much to take I was only able to stomach about 2 minutes of their potato brained comments before I deleted these fools. Beware

Who are these losers?

Giggly losers. So stuck in their own time frames. Politically correct. Forget them.
