Explora Banda Little River, Quarto Ano e outros!

Foreigner, Double Vision***: Back in fourth grade, I used to walk home from school. I lived about a mile and a half to maybe two miles from Dunair Elementary in Atlanta, and I would walk that stretch of sidewalk singing "Ladies Night" by Kool and the Gang or "Lonesome Loser" by The Little River Band or "Hot Blooded" off this album here. That little bit of nostalgia lifts this one up an extra star, but other than that, this is fairly safe and predictable hard rock. 11/9/15

O Berro: 'More Songs About Buildings and Food': 35 anos do álbum do Talking Heads

O Berro: 'More Songs About Buildings and Food': 35 anos do álbum do Talking Heads

Van Halen, Van Halen*****: It's not too often that a single album will come along that changes everything that we know about music. This, the debut album from Van Halen, was the perfect album at the perfect time featuring the perfect guitar licks of Eddie and the perfect showmanship of Dave. Springing like Artemis from the forehead of Zeus, this album (and one 1:43 minute guitar solo in particular) was fully formed from the outset, and it spawned a whole new decade of music. 7/23/15

Gene Simmons, Gene Simmons*: Is there a good song on this album? Is there even a good riff on this album? I don't know the answer to either of these questions, though I can give my own answer. But I simply cannot answer two other major questions. Why the hell is there a cover of "When You Wish Upon a Star" on this album? And how did Gene Simmons become an arbiter of taste, "discovering" bands throughout the 70s and 80s? I simply cannot answer those questions. 10/22/15

Village People, Macho Man*****: This gets an extra star for the song "I Am What I Am." These guys didn't just dress up in costumes in deliver awesome pop tunes. They were true pioneers, and it's because of songs like "Macho Man" and "I Am What I Am" and those costumes that demonstrate that anyone from any walk of life can be gay that helped paved the way for my gay friends celebrating the same rights as me and my wife. And fuck NC and MS for trying to deny those rights. 4/11/16

Devo, Q:Are We Not Men? We are Devo*****: Here's what gets me about this album. They took one of the primal songs of rock and roll with one of the most recognizable riffs of all time, and they throw that riff out in favor of some electronic, rhythmic, ecstatic mess that both dismisses the original and elevates it all at the same time. The genius of Devo is how they redefined music and musical expectations, and they did it from their debut on. 7/23/15
