Tony’s thoughts:

For the most part solemn seemed to be the mood of ~record club~ this time. The Richard & Linda Thompson and Low Anthem albums both had a bit of a sad tinge. I’d only heard The Woods before (and it’s an album I love), but I liked all of these. Since I’m generally a guitar rawk fan (and I’m a huge sucker for female rock singers) I’d rank The Woods as my favorite, followed by Mr. Scarface at #2, I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight third, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin next, and lastly Forever Changes, but there wasn’t a bum record in the bunch.

It was a good ~rc~ this week, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t hoping for a more upbeat setlist next week.
