Favorite Albums – B, C & D

Big Science
Laurie Anderson

Haven't had this in iTunes long enough, I suspect, for it to settle to its eventual high ratings. A deep and abiding favorite album. Can't remember who turned me on to this but it was back in my undergraduate days at UC Santa Cruz, I think.

5 star tracks: "Born, Never Asked", "Let X=X"
4 star tracks: "From The Air", "Walking And Falling"

Blade Runner – Esper Edition or Sunetul Original Al Filmului versions

If I had these, which of course I don't, of course, I'm sure I'd rate them about like this:
5 star tracks: "Bicycle Riders", "One More Kiss, Dear"
4 star tracks: "Blush Response", "Memories of Green", "Esper Analysis", "Blade Runner Blues"

Castaways and Cutouts
The Decemberists

Thanks to my pal Shannon for getting me turned onto this fine, fine band.

5 star tracks: "July, July!", "The Legionnaire's Lament"
4 star tracks: "Here I Dreamt I was an Architect", "A Cautionary Song", "Cocoon", "Grace Cathedral Hill", "California One / Youth and Beauty Brigade"


Do You Like My Tight Sweater?

Odd but tasty. Can't remember how I discovered this album.

5 star tracks: "Fun For Me", "Dirty Monkey"
4 star tracks: "Party Weirdo"

Duty Now For The Future / New Traditionalists

All hail Devo! I am so proud of my 14 or 15 year old self for perceiving the quality of their music (and I'm grateful to Dr. Demento for playing the band).

5 star tracks: "S.I.B. (Swelling Itching Brain)", "Timing X", "Jerkin' Back 'n' Forth"
4 star tracks: "Devo Corporate Anthem", "Strange Pursuits", "Pink Pussy Cat", "Redeye Express", "Through Being Cool", "Secret Agent Man", "Going Under", "Beautiful World", "Working In A Coal Mine"
