Your mission, should you choose to accept it…
Let’s say you’ve just had the worst day of your life. The mad, not sad, kinda Bad Day. The punch-a-hole-in-the-wall kinda Bad Day. What’s the go-to album you’d put on to feed, or vanquish, that anger?
So, who’s takin’ on the challenge, Ethan Hunt style, this week? Drum roll, please…it’s…staffers Tyler, Victor, and Leah!
Tyler picks 8 Mile: Soundtrack – Eminem, Various Artists
“What better artist to relate your anger to than Eminem? Enough said.”
Victor picks Blackout – Dropkick Murphys
“If I’m having a ready-to-throw-my-fist kind of day, there’s nothing like an entire album about drinking and fighting. Blackout will definitely feed the mood, but only so I can get it all out of my system.”
Leah picks Pink Moon – Nick Drake
“There’s something incredibly de-stressing and calming about this album. The hushed, warm, intimate quality of Nick’s voice combined with his gorgeous acoustic guitar work and simple lyrics seem to put things in perspective. Slows the world down and gives you time to just reflect – and let go of your anger.”
