Her Beautiful Eyes Can Be Cold When Peering At The Seven Miners - Thursday Shuffle

Ballad Of The Baconsfield Miners.  Australian bluegrass?  It's not bad.

Through These Eyes - Lynch Mob.  Too much Zep in the vocals for my liking.  Not enough shredding for a Lynch Mob song.  Gonna be generous with a C-.

Cold Desert - Kings Of Leon.  Dang, what is it with the ballads tonight, iTunes?  Definitely my least favorite track on Only By The Night.  Even at that, I'm gonna listen intently and enjoy.  Hoping the next song is a rocker…

The Fortress Of Salt Can Not Desensitize My Righteous Euphoria - Wednesday Shuffle

Self-Righteous Wall - Ryan Bingham.  This is a gruff voiced fella for being in his 20's.  He'll be the greatest country & western singer of all time at 40 if he keeps up his current pace of living.  There was mention of a new album on his FB page the other day.  I was giddy.

Desensitized - Mighty Mighty Bosstones.  More straight up metal from these fellas.  I dig it.

Euphoria - School Of Fish.  Ah, my Sr. year shoe gaze song.  Good…

Trinkets From A Hairlip Are Treasure For The Loveless And Hellbound - Tuesday Shuffle

Treasure - The Cure.  The Cure-iest song on Wild Mood Swings.  Plenty of sad strings and cry-singing.  

This I Love - Guns N' Roses.  By far the most hate-able track on Chinese Democracy.  It probably ruins the perception of the entire album for a lot of people.  Yuck.

Harelip - Tomahawk.  I've known a few of hairlips and they all dislike being called hairlip.  They should lighten up and listen to this song.

Trinkets Of Pale Moon - The Mars Volta.…

Ah, An Ugly Revenge Can Be Found In The Crossfire Of Serbia's Battlefields - Monday Shuffle

Ugly In The Morning - Faith Now More.  4.5 out of 5.3

Ah Ha - Butthole Surfers.  8.9 out of 9.8

Serbia - The Cult.  Three Tesla's out of four The Cults.

Crossfire - Scorpions.  Two cuckoo clocks out of one French invasion.

Shackler's Revenge - Guns N' Roses.  A tumbler of Old Crow at an all Wild Turkey 101 bar.

The Decadent Peach Was Brutus' Shame - Sunday Shuffle

Decadance - Living Colour.  Really hoping for a new album from these guys soon.  The last one was their best, maybe they can top it.  This song is one of the better on that album too.  I could never figure out why a bunch of black dudes from the US would use the English spelling of color in their name.  Weird.

Even You Brutus? - Red Hot Chili Peppers.  I kinda like Anthony trying to be Bob Dylan more than shitty rap Anthony.  This is way out of the usual for RHCP.  Good…

I Had A Gun But It's Broken - Tuesday Shuffle

What I Got - Sublime.  !  This song makes me want to smoke a cigarette.  Damn you Sublime.  It's been nearly two years.  I'll stay strong though.  That's me.  Strong.  I can squat 500 pounds.  Temptation is a bitch though.  

Guns Blazing - UNKLE.  More than a minute of intro kills a song, no matter how funky fresh the beat my ultimately be.  Too bad, as this song is indeed funky and fresh.  I'll just fast forward through the intro next time.

Lies - Baby Cake.  I…

Would The Drunkard's Kid Break Down When Visiting Him Under The Bridge? - Monday Shuffle

Break So Easy - Mighty Mighty Bosstones.  By far my favorite from these guys.  It pushes the bounds of metal with a horn section.  The guys are comfortable away from ska.  Good.

Kneeling Drunkard's Plea - Johnny Cash.   Having Tom Petty do the back up vocals automatically makes it a Tom Petty song.  I like the bouncy sadness.

Under The Bridge - Red Hot Chili Peppers.  I am legitimately sick of this song.  You can see the evidence if you really want…

The Dragon's Test Also Enters It Into That Thing - Sunday Shuffle

Where Dragons Dwell - Gorjira.  The Zakk Wylde pitch harmonics screechy shit can ruin a song even when he's not playing.  Minus that musical misstep, this is full on aggressive metal.  Can't believe I like a French band.  It makes me question everything I believe in.  Oh, I will be starting season one of Game Of Thrones this week sometime.  I hear that dragons dwell on that show.

Littlething - Jimmy Eat World.  Oh Jimmy.  I wish you would find it in your heart to knock off the…

As The Bones Fade To Blue Dust, Sir, Your Halo Brightens - Thursday Shuffle

Roll The Bones - Rush.  Minus the rappy slappy crappy in the middle, this is a great Rush song.  Can't fault the fellas for wanting to try something new.  The "ya dig?" part is absolutely cringe worthy though.

Sir Yes Sir - Tomahawk.  Second best song on the self titled disc.  Gotta love a Patton freak out!

Fade - King's X.  Dang, it's been more than two Shuffles since the last King's X song popped.  Glad it was this one that broke the streak.  Good harmonies,…

A Man's Soul Never Completely Deserts Love - Wednesday Shuffle

Desertion - Sevendust.  Sing-songy but I like the guitar.  It's outside of the normal tone for these guys.  It ends nicely.

Never Bought It - Dinosaur Jr.  The flute adds, not detracts.  The female vocal is a nice touch as well.  This and I'm Insane are a couple of my favorites because they sound like Dinosaur Jr. without sounding too much like Dinosaur Jr. Odd instruments used in a less than traditional way always intrigues me.

Soul To Squeeze - Red Hot Chili…

You're Battling Time When Trying To Catch Tha Train - Monday Shuffle

You're The Good Things - Modest Mouse.  This sounds like a John Mayer song if John was an enthusiastic and frequent Mescaline user.  That combination would be surprisingly good in this scenario.

Battle Of Who Could Care Less - Ben Folds Five.  I couldn't care less about the Ben Fold Five right now.  Next.

Hamburger Train - Primus.  A Pee Wee Herman line from a Cheech & Chong movie is the best way to start any song.  I will be buying "I'm Not Sorry I Took The…

The Gunman Is Hiding In The Tetons Like A Fool - Tuesday Shuffle

Driving The Last Spike - Genesis.  This is about a heroin addict dying of an overdose after being clean for several years.  Handle your high Kemosabe.

T.O.A.B. - Sevendust.  Not feeling it.  Shitty white guy rap/screaming takes away from the song.

Fool Like You - Ozzy Osbourne.  Yes!!!!  Ultimate Sin is my favorite Ozzy album.  I don't care what you think.

Gunman - Them Crooked Vultures.  I haven't spent nearly enough time with this album.  Every…

Can I Fly Into Atlanta Without Seeing My Peeps? - Thursday Shuffle

Flying High Again - Ozzy Osbourne.  Not the best Ozzy song but it's still not Zakk era so there is that redeeming factor.

Thumbing My Way - Pearl Jam.  One of the better songs on Lost Dogs but way too Emo nonetheless.

Atlanta - Stone Temple Pilots.  This sounds nothing like Atlanta.  Atlanta sounds like traffic and strip clubs that play nothing but Outkast.  Atlanta smells like car fumes and cocoa butter in case you were wondering.

Never Seen No…

The Explosive Fire Is So Dominant That You Will Suffer Some Type Of Coma - Wednesday Shuffle

Sex Type Thing - Stone Temple Pilots.  Nice!  Fat Scott Weiland makes a return appearance!  Always thought this song was more of an Alice In Chains rip off than a Pearl Jam rip off.  Regardless of who copied whom, this song has now gone beyond classic.  It's a generational standard.

Coma Girl - Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros.   Streetcore is by far my favorite solo Strummer album.  Songs like this and Ramshackle Day Parade are full of an intangible, positive spirit or…

Cowboys Cry And Shake With Romantic Electricity - Tuesday Shuffle

Electric Head: The Agony - White Zombie.   Oooooh, spooky!  Organs and sound effects!  Luckily it just starts that way and erupts into industrial goodness.  It sounds like every other White/Rob Zombie song ever but the dude has a decent formula.

Shake Like You - Corrosion Of Conformity.  I picked up this disc over the weekend.  Glad I did, can't believe I passed up on owning this when it came out.  Gonna spend some time with it over the next couple of days to it can be…
