Episode 62: Information Society - Information Society (1988) Part 2

Brian and Sarah take some time during their "Summer of Concerts" to resume their discussion on the 1988 major-label debut album from the American band Information Society.  In Part 1, an Apple IIe computer helped determine the order of the songs to be discussed. Unfortunately, the machine couldn't handle all that pressure and shut down soon afterwards, so for this episode, our hosts are left to determine the song order themselves.

Part 3 - Track by Track, continued

There's a mixture of songs from both Side One and Side Two to talk about, and our hosts decide to leave the biggest song for last. Or do they? Part of their discussion centers on the fact that depending on the audience, Information Society's 'biggest hit' varies among three different songs. Brian and Sarah also talk about two more videos, more Star Trek samples, a radio publicity stunt gone awry, and Amanda Kramer's top ten foods, most of which don't seem to be actual foods!

Part 4 - Extra Credit

Since Brian and Sarah spent quite a bit of time discussing freestyle music over these two episodes, they decide to review a list of the "top 100 freestyle songs," and each of them chooses their favorite song from the list.

Part 5 - Final Review and Rating

Both hosts have said some pretty good things about this album all the way through, although this episode did have a few more negative comments from each of them than Part 1 did. But you'll have to listen to the end to see how much of a difference that makes to their final record-adapter ratings!

Bonus  Feature - Sarah's Secret Song Snippet

Sarah's Secret Song Snippet is back, and Brian thinks this one is the most difficult yet! Sarah starts expressing some regrets, but it's too late to turn back now! Listen to the end and then message the hosts with your guess, for your chance to be "Sarah's Secret Song Snippet Star of the Week!"
