Default Discord & Rhyme — zonetrope's album discussion podcast

Hi folks,

I am a longtime music fiend. In June, I and some friends from way back launched a bi-weekly track-by-track album discussion podcast called Discord & Rhyme, and we're now a few episodes in and things are gelling pretty well.

I post this thread today because our latest episode is on the self-titled 2000 album by hip-hop supergroup Deltron 3030, and I know a bunch of Tyrants are big fans. We dig into all of the original samples and uncover some surprisingly heavy themes.

Anyway, I don't know how many music junkies lurk among this board, but I figured no harm in posting a thread. And feedback/constructive criticism is always welcome.

UPDATE: Here's a current running list of episodes:

001: Earth, Wind & Fire, All 'N All (1977)
002: The Moody Blues, On the Threshold of a Dream (1969)
003: Ween, The Mollusk (1997)
004: Deltron 3030, Deltron 3030 (2000)
005: Dave Matthews Band, Under the Table and Dreaming (1994)
006: Aretha Franklin, I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You (1967)
007: Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Emerson, Lake & Palmer (1970)
008: Todd Rundgren, A Wizard, a True Star (1973) (feat. Dave Weigel)

Couple new episodes in the last few weeks, these ones more on the mega-popular end of the spectrum: Dave Matthews Band's Under the Table and Dreaming (which we come to a surprisingly positive consensus on) and Aretha Franklin's I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You (recorded, coincidentally, before we knew she was ill).

Popping in from my TT break to say that I finally listened to one of these, the Dave Matthews ep, and it's VERY good. I tend to only listen to media shows when I'm familiar with the subject, but I will totally keep this in my feed and check in when y'all do a album I know.

Thanks McClain! I figure a good portion of listeners will approach the show like a buffet — it's all about building an archive.

A couple on the nerdier side: For prog fans, Emerson, Lake & Palmer's debut, and I roped in WaPo's Dave Weigel to join the panel for Todd Rundgren's A Wizard, a True Star.
