There are some weeks when one looks at new album releases and wonders what year it is!
Here we sit, proudly discussing the latest releases by Bonnie Raitt, Counting Crows, Todd Rundgren and German rockers Accept! It's great! Will they be the biggest releases in music business history and catapult their respective makers to superstardom? Heck--maybe, or maybe not!
Or will their simple existence be just enough to catapult those of us increasingly insulated from reality into a horrendous whirlpool of spiritual apathy and desolation? Like...will anything ever change? Shoot! You never know!
Or will we march to the nearest retail outlet, happily purchase all of them, and find a winning lottery ticket on the walk home?
Nope! That will never happen!
Luckily, there still exist some new artists--some proud, exciting new artists--who will record breathtakingly fresh music, lift us out of our emotional doldrums, and provide all of us with a respite from the same old same old and give us all a reason to live zesty and exciting lives in the years to come!
Guess what? They're scheduled to start making albums in 2015--and most of them are blonde!
