Wu Tang Clan - Enter the Wu-Tang-36 Chambers

Well what is there to say about this album that hasn't been said? As open-minded as I am with music, rap/hip-hop is a type of music which I never really became hooked on. It's not that there isn't rap I like or that I can't appreciate lyrical skill, but more that I simply have an inherent bias towards the musical side of things. With rap the emphasis isn't on the music, and so I don't listen to it as much.

Having said that, I've always enjoyed this album and amongst one of my circles of friends, it was our high school theme music. After all, this is THE rap album and everyone seems to be able to enjoy it, whether they come from a punk, indie or metal background or whatever. As each MC in the group fires gritty lyrical art at you in their own unique styles, you can't help but be wowed. There martial arts references are really cool too. And in saying rap's emphasis generally isn't on the music, the beats/sounds on this album really couldn't be better.

Linda Perhacs "Parallelograms (1970)"


This is what happens if a Dental Technician decides to make music, they sound like Joni Mitchell on acid. Not really but if that were the case it would be awesome. This is an album that despite its combining of psychedelic and folk was quickly forgotten after its release but began to get attention again during the psych-folk revival and its extended re-release in 2005. She's rumored to have dusted off her guitar and be working on a new album but keep in mind this rumor has been going around since 2006.

The album itself is much more dark and personal than its European counterpart Just Another Diamond Day while there's plenty of parallels (O LOL!) that could be drawn from their careers their sound is aesthetically very different, despite them being the founders of the same genre.

It's about ****ing time you wrote this review! Damn, you sure delayed things! That being said, I have no idea what the **** your dental technician reference means, but this album definitely does sound like Joni Mitchell. This album did gain popularity with the New Weird America movement. This album was re-released in 2003, not 2005 for the record. As of 2007, Linda has recorded two new albums. I'm not sure when they're planned to be released, however. This album has a very isolated sound to it. For people dumb enough not to have picked this up yet, it's a great purchase. Not essential, but it's worth your money.

Linda Perhacs became a Dental Technician when she faded into obscurity (though she was obscure before) after that release. The extended re-release came out in 2005 which is what I was referring to, hence why I said extended re-release.

Meat Puppets - Meat Puppets II

The Meat Puppets will always be known as the band which Nirvana wanted to be. I first heard them a couple of years ago and I've always been fond of this album.

Meat Puppets II is a bizarre combination of punk, country/bluegrass, psychedelia and proto-grunge which somehow seems to work - in fact they are considered to be one of the pioneers of cowpunk. This album is mainly a mixture of deranged energetic punk songs which hark back to their debut hardcore album, some hillbillyish rock songs and some enticingly charming and placid instrumentals. And of course there are the three songs which Nirvana covered.

Throughout the album, we have dainty acoustic work (check out I'm a Mindless Idiot), some acid electric, a nice rhythm section and a tragic vocalist who really doesn't care how many notes he's missing. This is really a classic album of the 80s and it's a fun and charming ride. Everyone needs to hear this at least once.

I think that we should resurrect this. How about a JJJ recommendation to get the ball rolling again?
