Another type of post. Back in the 90s in my first running career I used to select the top song / album of the month. These days I don’t have time to browse new artists with such a frequency. Besides, my back catalogue is just too huge. This 8GB iPod is already almost full.
Back to biz. The album awards for the first 6 months of 2007 go to:
(1) Kingston Wall: II. Fresh, well-produced sound, which doesn’t sound dated. An album I could have on a lone island. Tops We Cannot Move, Istwan, I Feel Love & Shine On Me. Super stuff for the long runs. Pablo noted he had the guys jamming in his studio after a gig, with tapes running. Yes, those tapes are now lost.
(2) Metallica: …And Justice for All… One of these great rediscoveries. An aged dry martini. Only last week I was firing One for the mile set. When Hetfield finishes singing after “left me with life in hell!!!…” it’s 5.21 and 3.20/km. In other words, the mile should be done.
