I have to admit: I wasn’t impressed when I first heard “Open Your Eyes.” However, upon giving the entirety of One Day Remains a chance, I discovered that it is a very strong record from start to finish. My favorite tracks are “One Day Remains,” “Find the Real,” “In Loving Memory,” and “Shed My Skin.” Oh… and I adore “Watch Your Words.” 💜💜💜
The same night I discovered last week’s featured band (Lord of the Lost), I stumbled across Crywolf. I decided to give him a chance and, as you can guess, it was a good choice. If you like a more mellow take on dance/electronica, Crywolf is the artist for you. And so, my album of the week is 2017’s Skeletons.
I was browsing YouTube, just selecting various videos related to whatever I was watching at the time, and I came across the song “Raining Stars.” I fell head over heels. I’ve been listening to Lord of the Lost ever since. I chose Empyrean as my album of the week because it contains the aforementioned track.
I decided to pay tribute to American Head Charge this week, to honor their bassist Chad, who passed away recently. I chose The War of Art because my favorite song of theirs — “Just So You Know” — is on this album.
Years ago, I went through a serious obsession with Danko Jones. They are a little quirky, but that’s what I love. And so I give you We Sweat Blood as the album of the week.
I love If. I can’t even explain it. When I was in college, one of my friends and I would listen to parts of the album every day before our self-defense class. MSI is just so fun!
In case you’ve missed the fact that I’m obsessed with Mark Tremonti’s music, both with Alter Bridge and his side project 😉 Cauterize is the heaviest of the Tremonti Project’s albums, so if that’s what you’re hunting for, look no further! Aside from “Fall Again,” my favorite track is “Flying Monkeys.”
