Album 914



Alkaline Trio - Good Mourning
Year: 2003

Sometimes you get in the mood for that familiar embrace of turn of the millennium pop punk. I was never really one for Blink-182, or MCR or the heavier emo bands, there's still time I suppose. But what I am familiar with is AK's fourth studio album, like almost everything of this genre (and pop in general I suppose) familiarity improves the listening experience but this had enough to hook me on the first listen all those years back. Make no mistake, this is not mindblowingly amazing music, but let's not pretend that everything has to be all the time. Take it for what it is, a fun ride that definitely deserves a spin.

Not gonna lie, I was definitely an emo kid in high school. Still have a lot of love for that genre and era. Great pick.

Album 913



Twenty Sixty Six And Then - Reflections on the Future
Year: 1972

This is a good heavy prog album that you haven't heard, and you absolutely should. The album is way less psychedelic than the cover would lead you to believe, but there are certainly elements of that. An interesting combination of ideas that's quite hard to place.

3 Choice Tracks: At My Home, Butterking, Reflections on the Future

It's been my - perhaps incorrect - belief or at least experience that in order to properly appreciate psychedelic albums one has to be under the influence of Sweet Lady M or some such pharamaceutical concoction, something I never have been and have no intention ever of being, so I think that might be a good reason why a lot of the psych albums I hear - even Hawkwind, on occasion - just don't click with me or make much sense. I feel it's unlikely I'll ever get psych. That one certainly looks like a trippy cover all right.
