25 Albums Turning 25 That Don’t Suck

25 Albums Turning 25 That Don’t Suck

This is my fifth edition of “25 Albums” for Decibel Geek. And things were getting a little thin by 94. Grunge had basically morphed into top forty “alternative” music like Weezer and Belly causing Kurt Cobain to blow his brains out. Pearl Jam sued Ticketmaster and lost. Gotta love those service charges.  Green Day ushered in the pop-punk movement that would influence future greats like Fall Out Boy and Panic At The Disco. Pink Floyd toured…

JOHN CORABI – Live ’94 (One Night In Nashville) (Album Review)

Today’s word of the day is “polarizing“.  Its definition: to break up into opposing factions or groupings. Now live albums, in general, can often be viewed as polarizing. I know of some music fans that generally have no use for them, while others will grab for a live album more often than not. Personally, I am a fan. For a geek like myself, a “well crafted” live record has the power to transport me into the venue…

LÖVE RAZËR at Eastsides (Concert Review)

LÖVE RAZËR at Eastsides (Concert Review)

It is 7am Saturday morning.  I rarely write about a show this quickly, but I make an exception for the one that Löve Razër put on.

However, this was too good to let it settle. Thankfully, my wife and I…
