In a new feature here on The Outhouse, the inaugural monthly music review group checks out Brother Ali's Mourning in America & Dreaming in Color! Join in the discussion!
Welcome to the Outhouse Music Review Group: Week One
Longtime Outhouse writer and community member Keb has the pick this month:
Artist: Brother Ali
Album: Mourning in America & Dreaming in Color
Digital Copy Available: Yes
Release Date: September 18, 2012
Genre: Hip Hop
This album is available at the link above as a CD w/ free digital download for $10, a digital download alone for $6, and on vinyl for $26. If you want to find it somewhere else, like Spotify, that's up to you. Go pick up a copy, give it a listen (or a few listens), and then head back here and post your review. There are no rules for the length or substance of reviews, except that if I think you didn't actually listen to the album, I'll disqualify it.
That's it! Enjoy!
How to Join
Want to join the Outhouse Music Review Group? It's totally easy. All you have to do is post a review! How do you do that, you ask? Why, it's simple! You could sign up for the forums, and then click the Discuss on Forum link at the bottom of this page to join in the forum discussion. There you can post your own review and discuss the album with others.
If you don't want to sign up for the forums, you can post your review in the Facebook comments at the bottom of the page.
The rules are simple. Post a review within a month of the announcement of this month's album. If you post a review, you'll be added to the roster. For every month that you post a review, your name moves up in the rotation. When your name is at the top of the list, it's your turn to pick. You can pick any album that came out in the past two years.
Review picks will be posted on the third Saturday of each month. I'll contact you when it's your turn to pick.
