Hit or Miss: The Sequel

This week’s selections were not as daunting to get through as last week’s were.  However, (spoiler!) our feelings about them land in the same general area.  You should hear what we have to say, though, instead of just going by the numbers, so get listening…

As anybody who has listened to this show a few times knows, I HATE doing these damn lists.    You and I both know the main reason is because I am extremely indecisive.  However, I also detest them because no matter how long I make the list (Kyle gets angry when I do more than 10) I still feel like I am slighting albums that don’t deserve it.   Then out of the albums I do pick, I have to split hairs over which ones I like more than others only to come up with a list I am not even sure I 100% agree with!  In the end, I have to get something together and just say, “Screw it.  It’s close enough.”

SideShow.28 

In the comments of last week’s episode, some listeners came up with ideas for a SideShow drinking game.  We LOVE the idea, and add a few more rules during this episode (official rules coming soon).  While this idea comes more into fruition, we also begin to discuss what proper etiquette is/should be at shows since apparently mall-trolling, Hot Topic-loving pre-pubescnents have no idea how to conduct themselves in public after they leave the min-van their mommy dropped them off in. We also take a look at the effect of side-project bands.  All of this, plus album reviews and previews await you in Episode 23.

P.S. The side-project Brian couldn’t think of was Dimension Zero.  He realized it as the show was moving on and never got to go back.
