Episode 79 - Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti, Part II

April 8th, 2017

Well, since it has taken us so long to discuss Led Zeppelin anyway, what was one more week? Also, we hope you liked our little diversion last week. Join us today as we at Iron-Cast actually get into our review of Led Zeppelin's 1975 release, "Physical Graffiti". Hailed as one of Led Zeppelin's finest works, "Physical Graffiti" was the first album to achieve platinum certification solely on advanced orders. But what of this album? Is it a masterpiece and is it Led Zeppelin's finest work, or is it arguably the most bloated, indulgent, ponderous and excessive double-album ever made? Tune in to find out.

Episode 37 - Aerosmith - Night in the Ruts - w/ Special Guest Chris Czynszak

June 18th, 2016

Today, special guest Chris Czynszak from the Decibel Geek Podcast joins us as we discuss Aerosmith's 1979 release, "Night in the Ruts". Recorded in the wake of mediocre sales of their previous release and during a haze of drug abuse, debts and band infighting, "Night in the Ruts" is seen as a crossroads album. But what of it? Is it a return to the blues rock we had expected from Aerosmith or is it a sign of the overly commercial mediocre material that was to come years later? Tune in and find out.
