Reviews:

1. I had high hopes for this but I think the only song on it I like is the first one. The dude can still sing but folk music is just not my thing. Like every once in a while someone pulls it off–and it’s usually only the folk songs with huge gospel flairs–but I don’t think this is one of those situations. I have nothing but respect for Mr. Plant, but I do not like this album.

2. With the release of his music video for “Black and Yellow,” this had to happen. Although I don’t smoke anything, I understand the appeal of having a vice. So I can’t entirely relate to 60 minutes of waking and baking, he can still rap.

Comment:

Owl City’s “The Tip of the Iceberg” reminds me of The Postal Service’s “Brand New Colony” which didn’t get played this week but The Postal Service’s “This Place is a Prison” did. I don’t have anything insightful to say, just playing a miniature game of six degrees of separation.
