Modest Mouse Keeps the Rain out of Bethlehem, Levitt Pavillion

#ThrowbackThursday Review – Queen – News Of The World (1977)

Does Queen really need an introduction? There was a dastardly battle raging within me; the goal was to determine whether I should just brush on Jazz or News Of The World. While I candidly enjoy Jazz as a musical album just a “tad” more; I have no issue claiming that News Of The World was their most transformative full album coming to the beginning of the decade. * I am being intense and critical after all; there are few bands today...
