Heeeeeeyyyyyy Everybody….welcome to another……poperific episode of Love That Album. I am joined by the bass playing, list counting podcaster himself Mr Ben Eisen, host of the All Tim Top Ten podcast.
For episode 76 of LTA, we are discussing the 1999 album by Fountains of Wayne, “Utopia Parkway”. These guys knew how to jangle a guitar, stick a melody deep into the recesses of your subconscious, and tell a tale about life in the suburbs. In the course of our discussion about this album we also talk about the difference between homage and pastiche, why some rock critics feel the need to trash people who live in suburbia (and why they’re stupid for doing it), teenage rites of passage, great summer music, and The Byrds. A really fun chat, and we hope you dig it.
Eric Reanimator also brings some power pop to the virtual table for his Album I Love segment. He talks about a band from Massachusetts called The Charms…and the name is apt.
