CD of the week #1: The Dismemberment Plan's Change

Here we are, first CD of what I hope to be a long, illustrious music posting career here on motz blog. We're gunna start with a CD that has become a main stay in my CD collection since my first listen well over a year ago. If you aren't a little slow, you probably read the title, but if you missed it, we're talking about The Dismemberment Plan's album by the name of Change.

Change is one of those few CDs that a person can come across and just not complain about. It is a CD dealing a lot with relationships, loss and other heavily emotional issues. The pacing of the album is near flawless, even though I think the placement of a song or two could've been better. Musically, the band is stunning, their instruments working damn near perfect with Travis Morrison's voice to create what has to be one of my favorite albums. As in if I wrote a Top 3 albums list, this would be #1 or #2. I kinda wanna leave #1 open in case something as amazing as this CD comes along.

This is a great indie rock (don't label this emo or I will junk-punch you) album that feeds on one thing almost all of us can relate to, our interactions with others. Listen to this CD the full way through, post your comments, tell me I'm 10 years late on this CD, whatever, I would love to know people are taking my suggestions! See you next Thursday!

hello hi

welcome back to your regularly scheduled programming!

I have been lazy about this blog. motz blog deserves better. In this vein of this, I am starting some new features. CD of the Week, something I used to do via Myspace years ago, will be resuming this week. I will write up a couple paragraph blurb on the band and a small review of the album, as well as a link to download the full album. Maybe some Youtubes too. And pretty pictures. The music will be all across the board, oldies, newies, rock, rap, electronic, you name it. I got enough music to get me through until I get the new computer, so don't worry!

I will also try to do an at-least-once-a-week write up on what I've been up to. I need to write down memories, or even just whatever I remember from that night. Its a good habit to have people!

Finally, I will probably vent about political shit on here. But I will warn you, so if you don't want to read my driveling stupid bullshit about politics, you can smile and move on! See you tomorrow for the first CD of the week!!
