    I'll go with Squirrel Bait since I already have it and haven't listened to it and was kind of hoping for something in a hardcore or metal vein anyway.

    You should download the others I recommended at some point as well. I think you'd enjoy all of them.

    What? No shit. Never would have guessed that.

    This is the description of the album on ?, and I completely agree with it:

    In the vein of the Minneapolis scene Squirrel Bait tried to be more like their heros Husker Du and they really came close. It's not a stupid immitation record. It's not a copy of Zen Arcade. It's Squirrel Bait...It's a band that took the sound of Husker Du brought in some really melodic elements, retained the hardcore punk speed and edge and wrote some really good songs...Imagine a bridge between Husker Du and the 90s alternative rock sound. That's what they are only a little punkier than any 90's band ever was.

    I'll make another stab at this for the hell of it. Sticking to one album a week. And not going to choose things that are totally overwhelming. And making it a preferably 2 times a day listen, but if I don't have the time, once will do. I'm going to set up the next four weeks now, today is my first day of this week.

    Week 1: Neil Young - On The Beach
    Week 2: Ghostface Killah - Supreme Clientele
    Week 3: The Kinks - The Village Green Preservation Society
    Week 4: King Crimson - Starless & Bible Black

    All good choices. Kinks week is going to be fun. Might I recommend Red over Starless and Bible Black? I prefer that as far as Crimson goes.

    Kinks and King Crimson are both bands that I'm fairly familiar with a few albums but still have gaps in some of their major releases. I'm open to Red, but Allmusic made it sound like Starless was kind of the best one of that period. I'd also like to get more familiar with Discipline. I'll figure it out when I come to it.

    Those are my three favorites from them. Starless and Bible Black is good, but Red is more taut and less "proggy" for lack of a better word.

    Definitely suggest Red. It is probably their second best album

    God damn do I love the Kinks. I'm surprised at how fantastic Ray Davies still sounds live.

    I'm gonna take a listen to that on the beach.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
