Good. I was hoping for a better album from a Bob Dylan/The Band outing, but this is fine.

How’s that for a title? And it’s cover? Mick Jagger’s head in yellow, see-through latex. Or, so I assume. He’s also wearing a funny hat. What a loon.

“100 Years Ago”, track 2, is somewhat… impaired structurally. I still think it rather good, though. Tired. Very tired. Will finish tomorrow, hopefully. Doubtfully. “Coming Down Again” is lengthy, OK at best. “Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo” has mixing issues, perhaps, as the rhythm is slurred often. “Star, Star” is pretty damn good, the good ol’ dualing guitars of Taylor and Richards going together well as usual, especially during the chorus, where it piques at Jagger’s cursing.

The Rolling Stones were clearly trying to incorporate something different into their music. There’s the noticeable impact of soul in the lesser tracks here, and overall, it’s a step away from their blues rhythm rock which they had mastered. Such a shame.  Though the album is still worth listening to, on a personal note, “Silver Train” is the only Rolling Stones song I’ve ever heard that I actually dislike.

That’s  how the cool people pronounce it. And this is the recording with which they tell you how to wrongly pronounce it.

And so concludes my listening to this album for the night. I’ve decided that, because of the fact that WordPress does not offer times of edits to the public, I will say idiotic things at the beginning and end of each time I edit this. My head is small, my nose is large, my ears are long, and my brow  carries a moderate weight, not taken from my mental capacity, but instead from the implied, lengthy hair that I need to cut with implied scissors. In short, I am me, and me is an idiot.

Le Nerd is kind of convoluted. Their guitars don’t clash very well, and often times, the bass is under used, as in “Simple Man”. I like their drummer, though. FIRST SIDE COMPLETE.

And that concludes the breathtaking view of Mr. Wise! Wasn’t he just beautiful? That glow… that glimmer in his eyes… he shines like  the sparkle of water from an overheard light. Truly, he is the coolest of the cool. A maverick of the masters. The high fructose corn syrup of your Diet Dr. Pepper.

I was writing a story about squirrels building statues which would be viewed by some one, and then another, and then another, and blah blah blah until it gets registered as a post on RT from me. It wasn’t worth finishing, it was poor, and I didn’t have the patience to make it worth reading. Squirrels are my kryptonite, it seems. Damndible squirrels!!! Always falling off of trees, banging onto my shoulders, or even tossing their nuts my way. And now they throw squirrel wrenches at my thoughts. Bastards!

Album finished now, should have been yesterday.

My complaint about convoluted guitars is perhaps too generally placed, as this is an issue at more specific moments and therefore less a problem. None the less, I feel too much focus is often times being placed on the guitars, which are not as musically impressive as Le Nerd might think, or at least not enough “space” is given for other use. This, still, is a complaint I would weigh more on the first half of the album than the second, though I’m too lazy to cite specific examples and make this critique truly worth reading. Sorry. :\

On the up and up, I really enjoyed this album. Persue more Le Nerd, I shall.

Billy the Kid picks up his guitar…

And it sounds… westerny? I don’t know, I haven’t heard it quite yet. The ‘it’ is Bob Dylan’s score for Pat Garett and Billy the Kid. Let’s jump in.

Well, the first side certainly swept me off my feet. Not westerny at all, reminiscient instead of the type of music that makes up much of Blood on the Tracks, so that’s  excellent. In the fourth track, “Bunkhouse Theme”, a twangy acoustic guitar picks off high notes to another guitars’ strummed chords, while other miscellaneous sounds such as the occasional thud or clicky sound reacts almost in response to the twangy notes. The effect is nice.

I don’t  consider this, in any regard, less than adequate. In fact, I love this album. I can find no logical reasoning for  its low or otherwise lesser status. Surely, Dylan doesn’t sing every track, but his compositions speak for themselves. I actually appreciate his unspoken tracks here more than those in which he sings. “Knockin on Heaven’s Door”, for instance, is too short. Or rather, it isn’t strong enough to work as well as it needs to in such a short length of time. Something is slightly off, perhaps the bass, which isn’t tied closely to the song. Hmm.
