Putting Out the Fire

Making up for our prior lies, this week’s reviews are all 2016 releases!  One of them is even Black Metal album!  Also…new Deftones.  Do you need any more reason to listen?  I hope not, because that is about all I got…

Brick By Boring Brick

To be clear – the episode is NOT boring! Your hosts just separately opine that some of the music could have been a little more interesting.  That doesn’t mean you should skip anything…you might like it!  You might think one of us is wrong and want to irrationally argue with the “wrong” host in the comments! There is fun to be had here, even if we didn’t think it was in the music.

Three’s Company…or Three’s a Crowd…

This week’s show follows a very similar trend to last week’s: there’s some awesome 5 (chaos)star releases, there  is one utter disappointment, and the rest fall in between.  Kinda strange how that worked out. There is one major difference this week, but it is obvious enough that I don’t need to explain it to you here.
