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 167


Sting goes solo and grows old, Talking Heads abandon the avant garde, Megadef debuts, Motley Crue forgets to paly metal, Mekons (maybe) invent alt country and Rites of Spring (maybe) invent emo. Then Entombed invent Swedish death metal, NKOTB continue to suck, Teenage Fanclub debut as a grunge band, Uncle Tupelo doesn't invent alt country, Deicide offends people, Sonic Youth sells out and Mariah Carey's voice is introduced to the world.
