Random Music Observations, the Tenth

-Of all the crazy things that are mandatory reading in schools, the craziest thing ever is Dee Snider being mandatory reading. In Russia.

-I think I'd enjoy Drive-By Truckers more if there were fewer ballads.

-The Black Angels should get more attention, not for being relatively new, but for being objectively really good.

-There aren't a lot of reggae songs I enjoy, much less reggae albums. However, I could listen to the Congos' Heart of the Congos and Mikey Dread's World War III every day for a year and still not get tired of them.

-In terms of rocking, dirty, absolutely-terrifying-yet-strangely-compelling, nobody beats Junior Kimbrough.
