MORE UNWARRANTED RECORD REVIEWS

I picked up a couple more slabs o' vinyl the other day.

'This Is the Moody Blues'



I've never been too keen to invest in a Moody Blues record. My feelings about the Moody Blues are luke warm at best. There are a couple of songs I like, so when I saw this greatest hits package from 1974 for 2 bucks, I figured what the hell, right? Well, when I more closely inspected the record at home I discovered that it was a two record set issued in one sleeve (I hate when they do that), and only one of the discs was inside. The song I like the most, 'Questions', was on the disc I did get, as well 'Legend of a Mind'. I did not get 'I'm Just a Singer (In a Rock and Roll Band)' or 'Nights In White Satin'. I think I'll survive.

I listened to both sides, and I'm even more convinced that there's no reason to dig deeper into The Moody Blues. Why is The Moody Blues often referred to as Progressive Rock? I'd lump them in wherever you put Procul Harum and Jethro Tull.


'Radio K.A.O.S.'



My first solo Waters record. I've heard much of his solo stuff through Chrispy. I like this one better than 'The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking', which sounds to me like Roger had Clapton come in for one day to toss off leads willy nilly all over the record in an effort to display his lack of need for Gilmour. 'Radio K.A.O.S.' seems a bit more focused.

Comments:
If Moody Blues fucked ELP, they would have a child named "What a Lucky Man in White Satin". They are the same awful band.
 
If Edward Elgar had humped The Kinks, they would have had a child named Genesis.
 
You should just go back to your Iggy Pop..
 
Shut the fuck up you anonymous bitch, go back to your shitty anonymous life.
