I am a slacker...

I know what you are thinking, What kindof Album of the Month blog doesnt actually post an Album of the Month?...and I apologize.

I have been super busy lately and it has lead to a lack of posting.

That doesnt mean there hasnt been some albums of the month, cause there have. And I have been keeping record of them. Hopefully I will get around to posting them soon...but alas I wouldn't hold my breathe.

I will definitely make it up to you readers at the end of the year, with a 'Songs of the Year' mix that I am already adding to. Its been a great year for music, and I havent even scratched the surface.

Anyways, sorry again for not updating...just keep listening to good music!

Album Of The Month: April 2007

Bob Dylan/The Band: Before The Flood

I bought this album as a gift for my brother one year, and then it turned out he already owned it, so I kept it. It was in my collection for a while and then I started to listen to it, and it is one of the main things that drove me into the singer/songwriter direction of musical appreciation.

Before I heard this album I was into the whole jam band thing, and never cared much for lyrics and music in terms of 'the song' rather then just the music.

If it weren't for this album as well as a few others, I would not be the songwriter I am today.

It is also one of the best live albums you could ever listen to, so listen to it.
