This is what I think of your shitty hip-hop music submission.
New Miley album. In stores today.
MAY 30 on AMAZON.com:
Lynyrd Skynyrd – Nuthin’ Fancy, CD, new, $4.99, free shipping: Although I’d probably rank the first three Skynyrd albums in their chronological order (which is exactly how I’ve bought them), Nuthin’ Fancy has some really fantastic tunes — “Whiskey Rock-A-Roller” being one of my favorites of the trio of long-players. LS has some deep cuts and none of the shit-ton of greatest hits collections I’ve seen in stores can hold a candle to owning even just these three albums.
Two more Ronnie Van Zant’s to go, them I’m complete. Creek that.
Qwel & Maker – Beautiful Raw, CD, new, $13.69, free shipping: I hate when I can’t grab an album like this on its release date, but Newbury Comics never carries any G4 releases. So here I am. Complaining. Blogging about the tough life and internet shopping.
Anyway, Beautiful Raw is exactly what we’ve all come to expect from the frequent collaborators: Dope. Next to The Harvest — Q&M’s shining achievement regarding their career as a duo, as well as in their separate endeavours – I’d say this album is the finest collective effort from the Windy City hip-hoppers.
APRIL 26 @ AMAZON.com:
Pulp Fiction Soundtrack, vinyl, new, $23.96 with shipping: After months of searching for a used copy and coming up empty, I found a brand new reissue at a decent price on Amazon. I mainly bought the record to frame and hang in my apartment — because Mia Wallace is a piece of ace — but the copy I received has a burnt orange glow that I know the original doesn’t. So, because I think the difference is obvious, the vinyl isn’t hanging on my walls. That said, it’s still a pretty cool addition to my collection and I do actually like the music on here — Chuck Berry, Urge Overkill, Al Green, plus a bunch of Tarantino-picked surf rock. And it made my buddy Jibba’s day when I gave him the free download code that came along with my purchase.
A win in my book.
