  1. NICK, HOW COULD YOU NOT LIKE LED ZEPPEL… oh, wait, you’ve told me to stop typing.

    I’ve now come to accept that Nick doesn’t care for Led Zeppelin or other 70s rock bands no matter how great or influential those bands are or may have been. That doesn’t mean I understand why you don’t like that style of music. Just as I don’t understand why you guys don’t like IPAs.

    I’ll continue this week’s theme of old school rock that you guys don’t like by saying this, even though you guys don’t want to hear it: the new Ghost album Meliora is good. Their last album Infestissumam was my most disappointing album of 2013. But Ghost has returned in 2015 with an album of songs that are actually good. I’m certainly not saying you guys should listen to it. For one thing, it’s not metal. A couple of songs barely qualify as rock. But the album is full of catchy, poppy songs that stick in my head that make me want to listen to them again.

    I’ve also been listening to Berlin by Kadavar, which is some very 70s rock. Kadavar one of my favorite bands of this style and they don’t disappoint on their latest album.
