Revisiting classic and not-so-classic albums

Listen to Riley ramble on about things he has no authority to talk about. There will be guests.

Episode 84


A sweeping episode featuring the third albums by Echo and the Bunnymen, U2 and the Thompson Twins. Also, Leonard Cohen goes '80s. Earth invents a genre. Dinosaur Jr. sells out. Turns out I like Superchunk more than Grant Lee Buffalo. And it turns out Yield isn't the worst Pearl Jam album. There's more: A concept album about Anne Frank (seriously). Ani Difranco's most commercial album. Madonna embrances contemporary elecontrica. Finally Gastr del Sol's final album.
