1001 Albums You Must Hear (and Blog about) Before You Die

My attempt to blog all of the entries from the book 1001 Albums to Hear Before You Die

485. Rip It Up – Orange Juice

Brief Background: Rip It Up is the second album from the Scottish band Orange Juice. The album was released in 1982.

What I think: One of my favorite parts of this project is coming upon bands I’ve never heard of as was the case with Orange Juice. It’s an interesting album of tight rock songs, with the occasional reggae influence (“A Million Pleading Faces”), which is an album I would usually enjoy. The only song that really grabbed me though was the ballad “Mud in Your Eye”. So there is nothing “wrong” with it, there just also isn’t much for me to write about either.

Do I agree or disagree with the writers as to this being an album you must listen to? Gonna have to pass on this, it doesn’t do much for me.
