To quote a great moment in cinema: “Pork chops tastes good. Bacon tastes good.”
From the second I got the first Bacon cd, which featured a song called “Brad Pitt” I was elated. Then I played it and sank into utter confusion. Former editor of the Grapevine Valur Gunnarsson put it best for the staff as a whole when he said “Not my cup of tea.” We all wanted it to be good, but wishing didn’t make it so.
And now I sit before the new Bacon cd, “Jenny.” And god bless Bacon, this cd is catchy and pleasant. I can play it for friends. I can listen to it without… aspirin. “Jenny” is a type of jazz, blues techno-fusion. Unlike it’s predecessor, this album keeps a steady, easy-going groove, and throws in moments of southern roots vocals to give an overall impression of a Georgia techno LSD revival meeting. Which is good.
Worth four beers. Costs three beers.
