Riss’s Ramblings – Are You Experienced?

Preconceived Notions:  I pretty much know what I’m in for.  I just haven’t listened to everything all at once, so I just wanted to see if it would change the way I feel about any of it.  In general, I’m a fan, I mean, who isn’t?

After Listening:  It could be because I’m at work, but this was just a really easy listen.  I’d like to listen again when I can give it more proper attention because there might be some technical things that are escaping me, but it’s just solid songs with more than solid guitar work, of course.  There’s a lot of influences of the times to be heard.

Favorite Track: Hey Joe- the subject reminds me a lot of Johnny Cash’s Folsom Prison Blues, but there’s a blues-yness to this track that catches me more than on some of the other stuff.  Fire has a such a classic opening and Foxy Lady is always fun too
Least Favorite:  Third Stone from The Sun- the vocoder is just too much for me here.  And I think the talent of these three guys should have resulted in something more interesting than this.

Overall: 4.3

Raised in the Midwest, Marissa feels that she has absolutely no good defense for liking what she likes or nominating what she nominates. She likes it that way. With a preference for the indie music scene, there was a time before (alright a rough adolescence) filled with oldies, then country, then pop. She was an unabashed slave to Nsync, and boy bands in general, but not Backstreet Boys, god no! But that has passed. Marissa is passionate about music and about caring about music (and caring about things in general). She considers herself a stereotype, a cliche and a conundrum, all at the same time. When not listening to music Marissa enjoys watching movies, that she will sometimes review on her blog. She is an avid reader and a seasoned podcaster.
