I like Wednesdays. Besides it being Hump Day, it’s the day after Tuesday. As Tuesdays are the traditional “new music release” days, on Wednesdays I head on over to my preferred music subscription provider, Rhapsody, to download the latest releases that interest me into my mp3 player.
But I’ve gotten a little behind in listening to what’s in the download queue. Set on shuffle play, it’s always a surprise which albums get mashed up against one another. This makes for some interesting, sometimes jarring, listening experiences. Take the past week, for example. Two recent releases played one after the other – Jeff Beck’s “Emotion & Commotion” and Ratt’s “Infestation.”
