Doing the '60s soul thing? Janis maybe more rock but that voice was something else. If looking for some great soul check out James Brown Live at the Apollo.

Sticking around in the 60's this week trying some new sounds.... got some Captain Beefheart and Frank Zappa coming up.... not sure if I can make it through those albums .... but who knows.... I give that James Brown album a try when I do live albums again.....

Psychedelic/Stoner Rock

WOW! ... it is not often that an album debut's in my top 100 but this one really hit the spot with some heavy Psych sound with killer vocals. Every track on this one is great and this album should grow into my top 50 if not higher with repeat listens.... must have for my collection!!!

This one started out with a bang with the best DevilDriver song I have heard from date but nothing came to close to that for the rest of the album. Liked about half of the tracks.....

Psychedelic Prog Rock

Comes in at 420... OK, I get it ... it is a Psych band but I did not do this on purpose I guess it was just meant to be. First time listening to this band and I liked what I heard with a few great tracks..... very hypnotic....

This was actually the first Puscifer album that I dared to listen to. Not a fan of the pop synth style of music and only found half the songs likable. Eventually I will listen to the other three.....

Best Song: Anarchy up Your Anus [83.6]

Thrash Metal

This is some old school thrash in 2020 from Mr. Bungle (Matt Patton of Faith No More) with help from Scotty Ian (Anthrax) and Dave Lombardi (Slayer) that was so refreshing to my ears..... brought me back to the 80's !!!!!!

Very solid album by AC/DC and ranks 7th best in their discography. A lot of the songs reminded me of the Flick of the Switch album. This one will be a great one with multiple listens...
