13/103.13 + 14/103.13 + 15/103.13

Am totally not going to phone-in my November daily posts with this renewed project … except for this evening.

Van Halen: Van Halen (1978) (p.412)

Don (playing air-guitar): “Is a classic, you can’t rate it”.
(I think this means he likes it)

Carol: 7/10 “gods, I’m so conflicted, I don’t know if I should like it ironically or whether I should sneer” /hipster

Joe/Frank: 7.5/10 “excellent air-guitar album”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (1976) (p.355)

Don: “Pretty Good”.

Carol: 6/10 “Would have scored more if it had Refugee. Rather underwhelmed”.

Joe/Frank: 6/10 “Sounds a bit MOR, but I’m probably inclined to agree with Mummy”.

Tom Waits: Swordfishtombone (1983) (p.506)

Don: “Still under evaluation, but generally leaning pretty good. Loving Frank’s Wild Years”.

Carol: 8/10 “Would listen again, suspect it is an acquired taste – but suspect I could totally acquire it”.

Joe/Frank: 4.5/10 (who wrote out the following) “It’s interesting, but challenging. Not really something I’d have a desire to listen to and I imagine only musical wankers will enjoy it. I can see why people appreciate it though”.


Now, if you are not be-dazzled by our musical reviews, enjoy a distracting snap of Don’s hands taken with Bessie’s Xmas camera.
