SVM editor shares the February stars (and duds) in rock music
One of two things is happening to my relationship with rock music in 2018.
Either the new releases haven't been as strong as they were last year, or I'm in a really bad mood.
February has come and gone, and only 2 new full-length releases have merited an "A" grade. That's only 4 for the new year.
By this time in 2017, I'd listened to fewer records, but handed out 10 "A" grades.
So, is the music just not as good this year? Or am I a tad more grumpy than I was this time last year?
For now, I'm going to say that the music just hasn't been as good. But I'll concede that I also might be a little more agitated.
Some strong evidence of the former being true might be that the best record of the first 2 months actually was released 6 years ago. Well, sort of.
