Breakfast in America – Supertramp

Jason: I knew more songs from this album than I had anticipated.  Brad: Yeah, I didn’t realize that pretty much all of the Supertramp songs I know are all on this album. Do you enjoy them? Jason: They are fine. I enjoyed it somewhat. What category of music would you put them in? They are…

Black Holes and Revelations – Muse

Jason: Muse. I am not too familiar with them although I did recognize a song or two from this album. Have you listened to this in its entirety before?  Brad: This is one of my favorite albums of the 2000s. I’ve played them so much around you over the years. How do you not know…

Illmatic – Nas

Jason: Okay, Nas. I don’t know any songs by him, I don’t think. This album didn’t ring any bells. Brad: I feel like you may have heard a couple of these songs before. Like “Life’s A Bitch” or “The World Is Yours”. Jason: Maaaaaaaybe? I recognized the Michael Jackson sample in “It Ain’t Hard to…
