My advice is: don't expect a career as a music reviewer!

Crawler in other words, too obscure even to find. I win again! My review of "My review of recent "Obscure Albums" post so far. Part 1" this was a hard to read thread owing to the lack of spacing and returns also the Punc-uation was a bit odd but mostly it was the way the review goes on and on and on listing dozens- if not scores-of different music without any space between the artists creating an impenetrable visual block of text making it hard and time consuming even to scan through and check the names confirming what I knew from the beginning that Crawler being both too obscure and too darn good would never be included. On a brighter note it was good to find the token reference to streaming because there may be one person on the planet doesn’t know streaming has everything on it-except of course crawler- and so that one person probably got something out of it- always assuming of course they were able to penetrate the impenetrable block of unpunctuated text.
I’ll post more critical writing analysis soon if this guy doesn’t learn to hit the return key.
I recc’d the doomjazz.
Never know what someone is going to like. And it was the first weird obscure album I could think of.
I’m trying the Bonny Light horsemen right now. very nice. Like.
You’ve got to try some Mazzy Star, if you’ve not heard it before. but most have heard one specific tune from them, anyway. Here’s a bit of Hope without mazzy star
How about Edgar Mayer, Dreams Of Flight. tough tune to find on the webs. First time I've found it, after over a decade of looking. Or, Early Morning, with Bela Fleck. the transients are so clean and extreme on the LP that it will pretty well snap off styli or tear the vinyl.
Funny MC, I had no problem reading and comprehending what you wrote in the same manner. I know you employed that tactic to point out what you mean. That's alright. I employed it for brevity or the post would have been two pages. You probably know that but want to point it out to make yourself look superior. That's a common occurence in most of your post. You might want to look into your constant need for approval by others. It is a sign of someone who isn't sure of their own worth.
If you look again you'll see my review of Crawler right after Dr. John. You didn't "win" anything. That need for approval again... I enjoyed it a lot and gave it a bit longer listen than some. Was surprised it came from you but there's a lot we all don't know about each other isn't there?
Thanks for the quick reviews, dadork. I thought about doing the same. I just listened to Crawler Live at My Father's Place and really like it. In fact, I just listened to the whole album minus the studio tracks at the end. Eric Quincy Tate was also fantastic. I'm a big fan a jambands so these both kind of fit. Doomjazz was...interesting. Late night, in the dark and drugs come to mind with them. I'm going to keep listening to more of these obscure albums.
Crawler NOT obscure.. They were on Epic for cryin’ out.
They were no Saturday’s Children.
Good for you dadork.
My advice to find music that you like either build a station on Pandora or Spotify with your thumbs and/or decide on a few favorite genres and find some blogs about them.
They are everywhere.
