This was my first one, so I guess it was a strong start. I get it. I really have a historical appreciation for all of the Hare Krishna stuff that this is packed with now that I've heard it in its entirety.
This may have been more compelling if I was deeper through the list, but it was a bit strong for my pallet.
This and no Zevon on the list? Really?
I wish I could go back and give Bob Dylan a more gracious rating now that I can see the commonality between them.
I got really lucky and got to listen to this on a rainy morning at the beginning of fall. Absolutely beautiful. This kind of jazz has a soft space in my heart from growing up in Pittsburgh and watching Mr. Rogers. I'm verklempt just thinking about it.
There's this thing that certain indie bands do where they'll play the last note of a third or a fifth wrong on purpose as some sort of deconstruction of musical theory(I suspect it's some sort of oedipus complex involving a music teacher). I don't think Taylor Swift is doing it on purpose. Beyoncé could hit those notes. The arrangements were good though.
What can one say about actual perfection?
Willie makes it sound so easy, like anyone could do it. I think it's his sincerity.
You can see all the ingredients and where they came from to make this new perfect thing.
I can't believe that I haven't heard a few of these songs as singles out in the world before this.
I really feel like I should have learned this in school. It was like the musical version of Huckleberry Finn.
I grew up in Pittsburgh in the 90's age 4-14. At a very young age I got to meet Mr. Rogers on set. All of this reminds me deeply of all the backing music that they used on Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. It makes me think about watching crayons being made and watching the trolley go by and a bunch of other little fragments of memory floating in my brain from a.... a time that had its merit. I can't deny that this is myopic and simplistic in the grand scheme of things, but it's too damn beautiful. It's a base we should all go back to build from.
Really not the best Morrissey, and Morrissey is not the best The Smiths.
Another genesis of so many wonderful sounds.
I just can't take Dylan sincerely.
