I Drove All Night - Cyndi Lauper. At this moment, I can not think of a better song in any genre from any era. Cyndi's passion is on full display. This isn't the ditzy air head from Girls Just Wanna Have Fun or She Bop. She's a full fledged, complex woman. She also has a great voice. I love her.
Ghost - Pearl Jam. Riot Act sucks balls. They were obviously just filling their obligation to Sony. I don't really have much to say here. It's boring and very unlike Pearl Jam. It's the poop of Pearl Jam.
The Road's Still Long - Cinderella. I hate to admit it but this is the very first time I have ever heard this song. Still Climbing, their last studio album, was available at the used shop a couple of weeks ago and I couldn't pass on it. It definitely relies on the bluesier side of rock but it's complex enough to make me pay attention. Damn. I missed out when this came out. It's really good. Gonna put this in the truck for a harder listen during the commute. I'm surprised they've never played this when I've seen them live.
Bam - King's X. It's not a song. It starts out with a screeching guitar and ends with an old recording that promotes the Edison Phonograph. It's a waste of a track. It's the poop of King's X.
Paris Is Burning - Dokken. This is a live version recorded in 1982. George Lynch was already a guitar master back then. This track opens up with a pretty intense and complex solo. Don even sounds good. 30 years of smoking, drug use and alcoholism has ruined that man. Not just his voice either. He looks like a bloated corpse wearing a wig.
