Classic Rock Bottom

There's a few CDs I have that I haven't or hadn't gotten around to listening to yet. Whether they are too "old" or I end up not really having much to say about them, I'm not doing a full on review.

Instead, I'm just putting in a sentence or two about what I thought of them. I'll probably keep updating this thread as I get around to various albums that have been sitting waiting for me to play them.

Joe Bonamassa - Blues of Desperation - While there were a couple of tracks I wasn't all that enamored with, overall this album was another winning blues solo album from Bonamassa.

Boneyard Dog - Bluesbound Train - Another bluesy rock and roll record, this debut album was pretty much kicking my ass each time I listened to it.

U2 - The Joshua Tree 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition - Sadly, while I absolutely love the album itself (it is one of my all-time favorites), the anniversary edition isn't much to write home about. Disc 1 is the original album while Disc 2 is a live concert from the Joshua Tree tour. It's not bad, but there's nothing special about it really.

Inglorious - S/T - I was really kind of hyped up about this album but I think the fact I've already sold it off on eBay might give you a hint about my final reaction to the album. Okay, that might be slightly unfair but after listening to the album four times and I couldn't really pick a single memorable song out of it, there's obviously something of a disconnect.

I have the Bonamassa album.  While I thought it was good, that's all I really thought.  I think.  I haven't spun it in quite a while.

I too love the original U2 album.  I had but misplaced the CD from way back when, so I had to repurchase.  I picked up the 2007 Deluxe version a while back, but I've never listened to the second disc.  And I have no idea what the difference is. 

After listening to another CD at work, I can add it to this thread. But I'm going to wait until tomorrow.

Scorpion Child - Acid Roulette - I was seduced into buying this one because of a few reviews I read. It sounded like something I'd be into hearing. The reality is that this one is simply a bit of an atonal nightmare. I had a hard time distinguishing any one song that stood out and it plays like one long bit of noise, not music.

I forgot to mention that I listed this album on eBay since it will not be finding a home in my CD collection.

I have the Scorpion Child CD.  I really can't remember what I thought about it.  It does seem like it was that fuzzed out retro rock.

Whitford / St. Holmes - Reunion - I picked this disc up when the store I buy my music from was having a big sale to celebrate the company anniversary. It comes with a bonus disc which is actually a copy of their first album (self-titled) from back in 1981. 

Overall, both albums are fantastic. Really good solid and energetic rock and roll. The song "Whiskey Woman" on the bonus CD is a new favorite.

This is just a great collection of songs and you really should check it out.

Seems like maybe Scott posted this in NMC.  I imagine it's worth a full listen.

I probably didn't listen to the NMC if it was featured. But I'm glad I finally got around to listening to this one.

I did indeed!!  And I like the new album still, not a big fan of the debut album though...

For me, the albums are about even in terms of how much I like them.

My co-worker is 65 and he liked the older album more than the newer one.
