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.

A standard in my podcast library

Jim & Greg know a lot about music. Like most humans they have great taste in music and they have terrible taste in music. Listening to them talk about music can be incredibly gratifying and/or ridiculously annoying. Their opinions may not converge with your own (that’s kind of the whole point), but there’s a lot more going on here than just reviews. Lots of interviews with interesting artists, musicologists, music historians and every other kind of music-related folks you can imagine. Highly recommended.

More Kot, Less DeRogatis

That DeRogatis dude is annoying. Maybe others can tolerate him, but I cannot. Wish someone would modify the app to eliminate him from the podcast.
