Happy Thanksgiving

Like many radio and TV talk shows, I'll have a "best of" Friday... Best of Country album covers for Black Friday (more new stuff next week!). Till then....

Honest CD sticker

I saw this interesting bit over at Country California: http://www.countrycalifornia.com/2008/11/big-box-blues.html and it got me thinking. What does that sticker really mean?? Hmmm...

Chinese Democracy

I guess after all the mentions of Guns n' Roses' long awaited new album, I should at least acknowledge that I went down to Best Buy and purchased the CD today. I'm no album reviewer so disregard my opinion if you're on the fence about buying it. I'll just say that if you really liked the slower, more melodic moments of the Use Your Illusion albums, you should enjoy Chinese Democracy (though there are a few pretty heavy rockers). It's not an immediate album, but I'm finding that with each listen, something new grabs me. Axl sounds great throughout and the band(s?) is/are tight. The sound is huge huge huge, and there are moments of greatness but overall, it's a mixed bag. My star rating after 3 listens? 3 stars.
