Rhapsody Rocks

I’ve been using Verizon Rhapsody for over a year now, and simply love it. Being able to dig through the archives and find classic stuff that I listened to growing up, like early Black Sabbath and Blue Oyster Cult albums, Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush, Robin Trower, UFOand so forth. The origins of my head-banging tendencies. Queue that up with other “angry music“ (as my wife calls it) like Rage Against the Machine, Disturbed, Limp Bizkit, Nickleback, and Evanescence, and I an a happy, head-banging, code-slinging idiot in my office.

These are all great albums that I can’t see myself buying again these days, but love the opportunity to listen to them now and then online. Then also being able to discover new stuff, many different genres, including my latest mellow favorite, Angelique Kidjo. Works right in there with other mellow favorites like Wasis Diop, Ronan Hardiman, NuSound, Enigma, and others nicely.

Of course it helps to have a good sound card and a 5.1 surround system to really blow the walls down and annoy the neighbors…
