View Full Version : Album of the Week- REBORN

Alright everyone, some of you who have been here for a long time may remember a weekly occurance that we liked the call the AOTW (Album of the week). It was shut down almost a year ago this week and it's time to bring it back.

The purpose of having an Album of the Week is to educate fellow UGers on favorite CDs of yours and helping them explore differant kinds of music they normally would not listen to. The author would normally write out a brief history of the album such as when it was produced and who it was produced by and maybe some background info on the album. Usually a track listing with commentary on each song would be included as well.

The main reason why this project was shut down the last time was because of the overwhelming amount of people who would sign up to write an article and then leave the site or completely forget about it and not send one in. After weeks of being on life support by generous people who wrote articles at the last second, it was shut down. This will not happen this time. This time around there is going to be a strict set of rules and believe me they will be enforced. There will no longer be a (as much as) four month period between the time you sign up and your assigned date. I will only be accepting applications maybe a month in advance to prevent huge lineups which result in people leaving.

We're going to try to relate this to the UG Classic Rock Book thread that is run by Floyd93, so check out the link at the bottom of the page if you want to help out in that area as well (we still need a good site maker :p: )

Articles will be posted every Sunday night and (hopefully) stickied by Jono. If it is your turn to submit an article, please send it in prior to the last minute... preferably on Saturday or before.

ONLY SIGN UP IF YOU PLAN ON ACTUALLY WRITING THE ARTICLE. I will be accepting applications for the Month of July. The dates are as follows:

Sunday, July 1st: Floyd93 (Blue Oyster Cult- Agents of Fortune)
Sunday, July 8th: fronkpies (Led Zepellin- Led Zepellin |||)
Sunday, July 16th: BlueOyster23 (On Your Feet or on Your Knees- Blue Oyster Cult)
Sunday, July 16th: BrainDamage (Aerosmith- Rocks)

Sunday, July 23rd: TheHeartbreaker (The Allman Brothers Band- Idlewood South)
Sunday, July 23rd: Maet (Rush- Presto)

Sunday, July 30th: FreewayJam (Television- Marquee Moon)

Sunday, July 30th: Cornlord (Van Halen- Van Halen 2)
Sunday, August 6th: sirpsycho85 (David Bowie- Hunky Dory)
Sunday, August 6th: distilledspirit (Traffic- John Barleycorn Must Die) <--- Backed out.
Sunday, August 13th: Bmm886 (Billy Joel- The Stranger)
Sunday, August 13th: private (Pink Floyd- Meddle)
Sunday, August 20th: fr0zt (George Harrison- All Things Must Pass)
Sunday, August 20th: freewheelinbird (The Jimi Hendrix Experience- Axis Bold as Love
Sunday, August 27th: AdayTripper (Deep Purple- Made in Japan)

Sunday, September 3rd: dead head313313 (Frank Zappa and the Mothers- Roxy and Elsewhere)
Sunday, September 3rd: DoTheEvolution (Derek and the Dominoes- Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs)<----- Missed date.
Sunday, September 3rd: Garci (Deep Purple- Machine Head) <-- Filled in :cheers:
Sunday, September 10th: zeppelfloyd (TBA)
Sunday, September 10th: The Smiths- Meat is Murder (TBA)

Thanks, and have fun :cheers:

I've got a revised edition of my old Revolver review saved on my computer.

Can it be put up as an "preview AOTW" just to get it up-and-running quicker? If not, I want to be down for July 1st.

Also, wilty, when somebody sends in an article, you should ask them if they are alright with it being on the project site. Don't ask before they send it in because they might be unsatisfied with it and say they don't want it on there.

Sign me up for July 1st, I guess. I'll write about a Rush album I have yet to decide upon.

Floyd93

^I already asked for July 1st if I can't do the preview thingy I asked about.

Maet
06-18-2006, 11:07 PM
My bad. I'm a little spaced out from wasting three hours watching 'Die Another Day'. It would've been a lot less painful without the commercials.

July 8th, then?

Floyd93
06-18-2006, 11:11 PM
^^If I get to do the preview thingy you could still get the 1st.

Here's the deal... I am trying to earn money through various gigging functions, and am getting ready for college, so I'm not sure about my schedule. Therefore I will not ask for a date.

If by the grace of God I get an article done, I will send you (wilty00) a copy, as long as its good then I'll just request the next available date. That way I won't take away spots from deserving people who actually write articles :)

By the way, if I get around to it, I will probably be writing about Genesis or Jeff Beck. Beck is looking kinda good at the moment.

I'll tell you what.

Write the article if you want, and we can keep it as an emergency incase some idiot doesn't turn in their article. If you want to submit it as a dated article to make sure it gets used (when you have time) that can be done as well, just let me know by PM and I'll give you a date to post it.

How would you feel about Marquee Moon, by Television? Great album, and I don't think it's very well known either. If it works, sign me up for whatever date's convenient.

Alright heres what I'm going to do... this month is filled up so the people who requested a spot have been put on a waiting list in order of request time. When an article is crossed off the list, the day after I will PM the first person on the waiting list to check and see if their account is still active. If I don't get a response within a week then the next active member will be put on the list.

Damn didn't see your post... do something other than Animals and I'll squeeze you in there :p:

Same to you Floyd.. I'd prefer if we get albums that haven't been done before and stuff that isn't blatantly obvious and everyone doesn't already have.

Edit: Whoa.. you did Revolver last time we had the AOTWs. Change it up, bud :D

^^Hey, BrainDamage, is your music gone on your computer or is it alright?

I know you said you wanted Idlewild South...

BrainDamage
06-19-2006, 08:07 PM
^^well, I can't get my external hard drive to work, so most of my live stuff is gone. I still have some of it left from CD trades I've made by mail, and a few lossless shows I've downloaded, but most of it is gone. Thankfully, I have all of my studio stuff, I put it all on my mp3 player, so I just have to transfer it onto my computer. And yes, I do want Idlewild South :)

aaaand, since I'm bored as all hell, I'm gonna start my Rocks article now :p:

TheHeartbreaker

I might not be able to get on to Trade tonight, but I'll be free to do it anytime after 2:30 tomorrow.

Floyd93

Sunday, July 1st: Floyd93 (Pink Floyd- Revovler)

Do you notice anything odd about that, wilty? haha

Oh and the only reason I picked Revolver again is because I changed it DRASTICALLY from the 1st one. I'll have to think of another album to do since I've already done Revolver. You can go ahead and take me off the list for now.

Also, the way you run this makes me feel horrible about how the Classic Rock Bio Project is run. You OWN me at this stuff.

Bmm386
06-19-2006, 10:39 PM
I'll go on waiting.

I think a Beatles album is needed.

Sgt. Peppers probably.

Floyd93
06-19-2006, 10:48 PM
^^Wilty wants lesser-known stuff.

Bmm386
06-19-2006, 11:21 PM
Ah.

How about some Billy Joel.

The Stranger isn't too popular.

Floyd93
06-19-2006, 11:23 PM
I think it'll go over well because EVERYONE knows the Beatles. Not everyone knows Billy Joel.

Bmm386
06-19-2006, 11:24 PM
Yeah, i thought Sgt. Peppers was iffy.

Floyd93
06-19-2006, 11:27 PM

wilty00
06-20-2006, 01:09 AM
Yeah im fine with better known albums, but stuff that has been done before and things like DSOTM or the Wall and things like that aren't why this thing was started. It's supposed to help people find albums they normally wouldn't.

In either case, I'll put you on the waiting list Bmm.

The reason for that is because it gives you guys a chance to change what album you want. If the time comes to go on the actual list and you haven't submitted an album change, then I look for your sign up post and use that album. Otherwise I'd have to go back and change it everytime someone wants to switch albums and theres already been atleast three people who have done that.

As for dates, I suppose. I'll do that in a bit.

In all seriousness, I was in a rush to get everything in order after I saw that one of the guys had been banned and one due up this week was backing out. :p: that's understandable. I'll go on the waiting list for now. I'll write the review soon though, and if someone backs out, I'll substitute.

Anyways, I won't be on much so I'd really appreciate it if someone could alert the upcoming dates that their articles are due as I won't have a chance to for quite some time.

All added.


And Bmm, I appreciate the help. I sent out this weeks reminders and updated the list so just incase im not on in the next week then its your job :p:.


And just for future referance if anyone is having problems taking 10 minutes out of their hustle bustle lives to write a short review, please don't come running to me 18 hours before its due telling me you can't write it. PM the next in line on the waiting list... it puts me and the next writer in a ****ty spot when I come online the night before its due to find out that someone can't write their article for whatever reason and they are backing out. If you can't be assed to write your article more than two days in advance when you've been on the waiting list for as long as a month then I can't be assed to read your PMs, PM you back with an angry letter, PM the next in line desperatly apologizing to them for not giving time, and PM Jono pleading that its only a one time thing and this thing isn't going down the ****ter like the last one did because people didn't turn in articles. Please write your reviews in advance so this situation doesn't come up, and if you are anticipating some computer problems like some have been then send them to me in advance and I'll be happy to post them for you.

Incase anyones wondering how/where im writing this with all the moving and all, I'll be in a hotel downtown for the next two weeks atleast and my dad will have his laptop. :D Renovations on the new home should be done by the 5th or so but I will not have internet until atleast a week later.

Hey Get-Born, I think someone in the last AOTW did Van Halen I and II. I'm not sure about that though. If you want to do something Van Halen, maybe you could do Fair Warning or Diver Down. Those would be cool reviews of lesser known albums.
