Throw Me In The Chorus

Happy Halloween hangover!  And also happy November?  Geez…how did it get to November already?  Craziness.  Anyway, we’re hear to kick off this month with a new batch of tunes from the end of last month.  In our opinion, they run the gamut from amazing, must-buy to kinda meh, but they largely aren’t that simple to describe as such.  It’s a good thing we have this podcast to elaborate on that…and the comment section fro you to tell us your thoughts on these albums.

Live and Well

Boy, do we have a packed show for you!  I don’t think we’ve made an episode this long in quite some time!  Four new reviews, two of which really get your hosts talking.  We also have not one, but TWO live reviews, which in our infinite awesomeness, we coordinated with two of album reviews. So, strap yourself in for good one, freaks!  Oh, and be sure to get talking with us in the comments!

After coming off of last week’s show focusing on production, we’re happy to report that all the albums this week are produced very well.  On top of that, they are all full of good music!  We have four new albums whose bands are new to us, and two of those are also brand new bands! We also have a live review of the last top of “This Tour is Personal.”  So, it’s a very full episode, baked twice for extra deliciousness (just listen…we explain).
