This is either amazing or awful

I have lately been getting seriously into Google Play Music at work. Without aiming to sound like a shill for the service, I’m digging it pretty thoroughly. It’s like Pandora plus Spotify plus an MP3 player. You get radio stations, but you can skip songs and reorganize the upcoming playlist. You’ve got the library of tons of songs for unlimited streaming plus the ability to save any albums locally which is pretty cool for trips and stuff. And you can upload your own library to fill in the holes of what they offer from their side.

Needless to say I’m impressed and have been stretching my music chops lately because of it.

The discovery today was an album, Living Tree, a collaboration between Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman who are apparently some prog rock folks I’ve never heard of. This creation is certainly different but I’m enjoying it. I can’t quite say that it’s good in the classic sense that I absolutely adore it but I also somehow can’t seem to stop listening either. Conversely, it somehow doesn’t seem that far away from being absolutely terrible either. All the same, there’s something hypnotic going on, and worth sharing.
