The new album by Cake, called Pressure Chief, is due out very soon, and being on their mailing list, I was lucky enough to get a cool pre-order special. Their last album, Comfort Eagle, made it onto my All-Time Top 10 list of favorite albums without a problem. Every song on it is nothing short of excellent. It’s rare to find an album by any musician where every song is great, especially in this day and age of prefab musicians and calculated formulas for getting big hits on radio and MTV.
So how’s that for setting a high level of expectation for Pressure Chief? Somehow, I doubt I will be too disappointed, though it might not be the masterpiece that Comfort Eagle was.
Here is my All-Time Top 10 list of Best Albums (in no particular order):
That’s a difficult to compile, but I think back to what records, cd’s, or cassettes I wore out the most, and those would be at the top. So who is on your list?
