Hey folks, welcome to episode 51 of Love That Album. I’m going for a slight variation in format (though I think at times we fell back on the old). For some future shows, we will pick 2 albums and discuss in a more broad fashion, rather than going song by song. Less time spent per album, but hopefully, the heart of what makes the albums so good (or so shitty if that’s the case) will still be covered.
I am joined by JuanJose DeLa Cruz of the wonderful List Music Podcast (happy birthday Juan) and first timer to LTA, David Blom. Each of these fellow music fans has suggested an album for discussion. Juan picked King Crimson’s “In The Court of the Crimson King” and Dave selected The Flaming Lips’ “Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots”. Both albums have a prog flavour so I thought it was a good pairing. As well as the music, the discussion turns to war, illness, death, old computer games, Benny Hill….the usual stuff discussed on LTA. I hope you enjoy.
For his Album I Love segment, Eric Reanimator discusses Monster Magnet and their album “All Dopes To Infinity”. Hear a little Stooges in there? Good. Hold that thought……
