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 109


So. Many. Records. Polished '80s Boomer Nostalgia. Hair Metal that's more Metal than Hair. The beginning of the legend of Tom Waits. A leftover classic from August. Samples in guitar pop. The worst album of the 1980s or the worst album to sell 14 million copies? Some political melodic hardcore. A rapper who does not write his own raps and one who does. Crossover thrash. The birth of Post Rock. Nick Cave's best record of the 1980s. Energetic, ethereal Dream Pop. New Age. Snarky indie rock. Ozzy. The birth of British Acide House. And Randy Newman raps and it's not pleasant.
