More Rolling Stone Five-Star Reviewed Albums

Erik Heels has updated his list of albums receiving 5 stars from Rolling Stone. (I talked about this over a year ago). It’s not getting any better for Rolling Stone. Erik is mad that Rolling Stone doesn’t do a better job promoting their 5 star album reviews (with links to buy the album or with announcements that another album has reached the plateau), and I’m mad that Rolling Stone only gives reissued albums 5 stars. Sure, they don’t want to give out 5 star reviews all the time, but if the only way you get one is to reissue a 10+ year old album or be in U2, that’s a bad scene. For shame, Rolling Stone.

Lee Child, Nothing To Lose

When my dad visits, he can always be counted on to leave behind some hyper-masculine paperback trash (what’s the counterpart of chick-lit, will “dude-lit” work?). The Reacher series can be summed up as the continuing adventures of an unbelievable bad-ass who goes around doing bad-ass things for, essentially, the sake of pure bad-assery. The writing isn’t spectacular, and the plots aren’t realistic, but there are worse ways to spend a few hours.
