those top three albums are all world beaters
So 1000 Forms Of Fear in at # 1 even if only 54,000 units shifted, still a good number. Maybe I was wrong? Maybe I should listen to it again? So I did and this album is so full of it self it seems to swagger along in self-regard though its only saving grace is Sia’s voice and when that’s all there is, it begins to pull you under.
Three really good albums and boatloads of whatever with at least two serious dogs in the mix. Take it or leave it, I don’t care, I mean yeah Trey is # 1 but he only sold 105K so oh well whatever, right. I wonder how many of these albums will go, forget platinum, gold.
No One To Run With – The Allman Brothers – Dicky Betts takes the rhythmic lick from a Stephen Stills and places it on top of a choo choo train, than rolls over country and rock on the way to pop – A
Na Na – Trey Songz – Very catchy sex song by a guy I once saw open for Mariah Marey, he sucked but man, the women in the audience could care. This is better than usual, a tricked out beat and a cute metaphor – B
Touchin, Lovin – Trey Songz – Autotuned by the number like T.Pain with his melody jones on stand by and if you think Minaj adds much to the situation, you haven’t been paying attention; about as sexy as a toothache and since that’s what it is all about, who would you blame for the lack of fireworks? – C-
Here we go, Independence day weekend, the worst week of new releases this side of New year, has nothing much going on. I like the new Robin Thicke album I guess but naming his album for his ex-wife? It is all kinda nauseating (though maybe good business?) . Seether? Trey Songz? Magic!? On to the next week.
The last time I saw Billy was at the 12-12-12 gig, and the time before that the closing of Shea Stadium. He was terrific in one and not terrible in another but absolutely the perfect way to take out (or bring in) 2013 – 2014.
