As Manowar Week was so, um, successful, I was wondering if anyone was interested in making this a weekly thing? Someone can choose the artiste each week and see how many people will agree to write either a review, a few lines or even a joke about the albums?

Was thinking, in fairness, of making next week Beefheart Week!!!
Any takers, other than the obvious?

But out of the failed ashes of Manowar Week, rises the Phoenix of my new journal.

ahem... You're gonna need to do more than just regurgitate old reviews (well, a week old now) to make this stand out, my man. Mind you, the demo was interesting, but I predict you will lose interest in this within two weeks. Or less.

Prove me wrong!

Only one of those was a week old. The rest I did in a single day, one after the other, which was the same day I put the journal up. So suck it.

Manowar week is over? I'll still write my review though, I'm a man of my sword.

Every week is Beefheart week but I guess I'm game for that too.

Okay, well if you want it to happen we need a few more people prepared to review, so get campaigning. I'd say a minimum of four, so that's two more, but obviously the more you can get the better as it gives a more interesting overall picture of how people react to the artiste. I see 13 albums as such (acc to Wiki) so ideally 13 people, but we'll never get that so I don't mind doing maybe 2 albums, I'm sure you'll do 2 and that then leaves, um... (multiply by four, carry the two, split the infinitive...) ninety-four albums! Oh no wait: recycled joke from the Update Thread. I'm running out of steam...

9 albums. So if you can get 9 more people, or 4 more prepared to do 2 each...

You can review Beefheart for fun too. No restrictions.

TH I'd recommend reviewing Bluejeans and Moonbeams and Unconditionally Guaranteed because most Beefheart fans abhor them, which means there's a good chance you'll adore them.

I'll wait until other people come in and pick what's left since I have no problem doing any of his albums except for the two above.

OK, well maybe we can do the same thing as was done for Manowar week, ie a list of albums and let people choose what they want to do, match them up with that album or those albums and see what's left? Does 13 studio records sound right to you?

Those two are fine with me: no point in doing ones I have already listened to, since this is your way of sneaking more Beefheart on my plate, as I'm sure you're aware...

This was your idea, which strengthens my theory of you being a closet Beefheart fan.

He has 14 albums if we count Bongo Fury with Frank Zappa, which we will be.

I want Chula to give (Shiny Beast) Bat Chain Puller a shot if he's down.
