CDs in the mail today. It was time to order something from Columbia House. CH doesn’t have the greatest selection for a guy with my eclectic taste, but it’s good for finding loud, snotty crap to annoy the neighbors with.
AC/DC, Back In Black: Listening to it now. I shouldn’t like this heavy metal dreck, but I can’t stop myself. I adore this album. I had it when it originally came out, and it was a guilty pleasure way back then, too. Angus Young is the best riff maker this side of Keith Richards. This remastered CD is so crystal clear. What can I say, it rocks.
AC/DC, Highway to Hell: I’ve never owned this, but I figured it was another classic must-have, and so long as I was rotting my soul with Satan’s Minons, I might as well go all the way.
Meat Loaf, Bat Out of Hell: I bought this LP when it first game out. I’ve always loved “Paradise by the Dashboard Light.” It’s a true classic, in the class of “Stairway to Heaven”, “Cocaine”, “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Day in the Life.”
Pink Floyd, Dark Side of the Moon: This is the fourth copy of this album I’ve own. The first was an eight-track my brother gave me when it first game out. Later, I got my own LP, lost that. Then three years ago, my wife got me the CD for Christmas, and my step-son lost that. OK, this isn’t one you play loud and it won’t have your neighbors calling Officer Opey, but if you don’t have a copy of DSOTM in your collection, your collection is incomplete.
