Who would have guessed that my posts on Samson’s smelly, brown, gross, yeast-filled ears would be some of the larger hits on the site? Samson.
Having any luck? What are you doing?
I’m way behind in cleaning his ears, but having to move an entire house with 2 kiddos 2 and under doesn’t make it very easy. Like usual lately, “I’ll do it tomorrow.”
I can’t wait to write one. But I’m not sure I’m going to have the time right now as I’m in the middle of packing up a house and moving in under a week.
Every time I listen to it, new things come to me…new ideas, new thoughts, new perspectives on these guys.
I really think the album has some of the qualities of the other albums, which makes me smile that the 4 “veterans” are moving forward with a head of steam. There, of course, is also the “new” component, the new feel, some new idealism and perspective.
But I’ll save my review for another date.
More importantly, what do YOU think of it? What’s your experience been with this band and their music? I’d love to hear from folks who are just getting into them for the first time. What a great album to have as that first impression, that imprint, that “first time.” There’s usually nothing like it. But over 10 years makes this album feel like I get a second “first time” listening to them again.
