Best Albums 2013 – #18-#17

#18 THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA 8:18 TDWP has been a favorite of mine for a while now. They are heavy, so if you aren’t into that kind of thing this album isn’t for you. This is a slightly newer side […]

#20 MARNIE STERN – CHRONICLES OF MARNIA Marnie Stern offers great lead guitar lines with interesting vocal melodies.  I would call this album experimental pop rock.  It is catchy at times, but doing unusual things at other times.  It is […]
