CD-a-Day: Answer Yourself Edition

Clem Snide: End of Love

Less repetitious, a bit more live. Four or so years between albums can be a good thing, though I realize that there was a CD in between. I don't have it. This one I'd likely not have apart from the wonderful music department we have on campus at work. Which begs the question: What rep thought that Clem Snide would be a good idea to send to a videogame company? What shall we put a Clem Snide song on, hmm? The next Mortal Street Kombat Fighter? That would be...interesting, certainly.

The title track is good. I was also intrigued by the song "Jews for Jesus Blues". Eef Barzelay is Jewish himself, and I wonder if this was written from experience or cynicism. Both, maybe? The next track, "God Answers Back" kinda pissed me off, but that is because I didn't like what he had to say. That's between Eef and God, I suppose.

This disk is much more mature than the Ghost of Fashion, and I'm glad for it. It's still unlikely that I will decide to spin this anytime soon. Another disk made for my iPod to shuffle. I also imagine that Steve would love it...maybe I should send it to him?
