I suppose if I wanted to introduce the boys to reggae, the easiest choice would be Bob Marley’s “Legend.” The problem, though, is that my loathing of that album is nearing epic proportions. I’ve found few are genuinely interested in the nuances of rant, so I’ll keep it brief.

In the past, I tried to bring myself to argue in print that ZZ Top’s ‘Eliminator’ was a perfect album for its time.
