Blog's not dead

I've been a little on the lazy side for a few weeks. I thought that I would post some things during the downtime as I take a little roadtrip to Colorado and back, but it looks like my fileserver's down. Hopefully that'll be back up on Friday. I've got at least two cool posts planned and some ideas after that.

Bowling Green State University Gospel Choir - Bring a Tenth of Your Worth

I feel like the gospel I've been posting has been sort of skirting the real stuff. Gospel for people who don't like gospel. I like Gospel, it doesn't have to have dirty guitars and strange instrumentation, it just needs energy.

So here you have something pretty normal (not to say "boring"). I don't know much about this album and I don't know whether there's much to know. I know that it's on Savoy, so it's got enough quality to be released on a non-vanity label, which is surprising for a college choir release. Of course, I could listen and tell you that. This is choir heavy, not about crazy impassioned shouting, but a good strong choir with enough instrumental backing for it to be fun.

I'll put it this way, if you're looking for a wild gem of rock & roll hidden in a gospel sleeve, today is not your day. If you just want another gospel album and don't know where to turn, this should be a fun listen
