Moving Violation

As we shared through social media, this episode comes to you late because Brian got a new place and Nick helped him move all weekend.  Instead of slighting you awesome listeners with a quick show just to get it done, we made you anxiously wait for the real deal. So without further delay, here it is!

Brick By Boring Brick – Part 2

It is brought to my (Brian, that is…in case you forgot I am the one that writes these things) attention in the beginning of this episode that my description of last week’s show may have been a bit harsh. Well, since we both agree that this week is more fitting to Episode 204’s title, I cheated on the name, while simultaneously starting a little episode sub-series.  Like last week, though, – or any week for that matter – you might think we are way off base on our lukewarm feelings for some of these album, or even the warmer feelings we have for the others.  If you’re going “hey, that’s me he’s talking about” then let us know in the comments!

Sometimes being at a loss for words can speak volumes. This becomes readily apparent as our faithful heroes maneuver through a slew of new albums, all of which are from more well known bands, compared to last week, anyway.   All these reviews, luckily, have new tunes to accompany them…which is extra sweet for releases like Serpents Unleashed which has a few weeks before coming out, and we can give you a fresh taste of.  But I digress in my excitement…just stop reading and listen for yourself already!
