Don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it—well, Lisa and Jack tried. Taylor Swift’s landmark pivot to pop album has a lot of iconic songs, but none of them connect. Swifties would do well to avoid, though the preamble highlight her many admirable qualities. Come for the de rigeur Billy Corgan invocation and French word jokes, stay for Jack saying “articulation” and Lisa saying “Jake Gyllenhaal” roughly fifty times a piece.

Lisa begs not to do a full hour, but they nearly do anyway. This week brings appreciations for a six year old album already rightly considered a masterpiece: To Pimp A Butterfly, by Kendrick Lamar. George Clinton, The Isley Brothers, Flying Lotus, Thundercat, and Tupac: we’re gonna be alright.

Lisa and Jack don’t like this album, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth talking about Madonna’s legacy. Consider: mermaids, button-down dresses at the beach, and dating David Fincher.

It’s 1980, and Lisa and Jack have ten songs full of stunning guitar riffs and stultifying innuendo to talk about, or possibly lose their minds over. That’s right, we’re Back in Black with AC/DC. Tent theory and satanic panic.

Lisa and Jack take a trip to the five boroughs with the 1989 sampling masterwork, Paul’s Boutique. Everything and the kitchen sink. Jack remembers their instrumental album’s title is “The In Sound From Way Out!” but is too sheepish to say it with conviction while recording.

This week we take a look at the album that catapulted U2 to superstardom: 1987's The Joshua Tree. Both Lisa and Jack are surprised to find out what certain songs on the album are really about; Jack still manages to mention The Pogues. What's your Rockstar Name?

This week we are covering “Close to the Edge” by Yes. Released in 1972 by a British prog rock band - so yes, of course Lisa loved it. But it’s worth a listen as it’s a near and dear album.

We are covering the first half of 2Pac’s double album “All Eyez On Me” this week. 2Pac was an undeniable power house of a rapper, and the first half of this album features so many of his greatest hits. Listen as we dive back 25 years to this phenomenal album.

This week we are covering the big beat monster that is “Exit Planet Dust” by The Chemical Brothers. It dropped in 1995 and laid the framework for electronic music for decades to come. Give this killer album a listen along with us.

We are discussing Queen’s 1975 behemoth album “A Night at the Opera.” This is the album that features the GOAT that is “Bohemian Rhapsody,” but do the rest of the songs hold a candle to that massive single? Listen and find out.

We cover the 1994 release of “The Downward Spiral” from Nine Inch Nails this week. A dark, grimy, loud, angry album, but a masterpiece in and of itself. A difficult listen, but one worth a go if you can make it to the end.
