This sinister speedster’s invasion of Avengers Tower has turned the Hulk into a gamma bomb, can he be stopped? Meet me after the super speed jump to find out.

Robin Renee On… Joan Armatrading’s Track Record

arm1

Each week, one of Biff Bam Pop’s illustrious writers will delve into one of their favorite things. Perhaps it’s a movie or album they’ve carried with them for years. Maybe it’s something new that moved them and they think might move you too. Each week, a new subject, a new voice writing on… something they love.

One of the things I’ve always loved about listening to music is the experience of diving deep into an entire album. From the first song to the last, at least in the case of most of my favorites, there is a journey in store. The songs follow one from another taking sonic and emotional turns, all according to the creation and direction of the artist. That has always made greatest hits albums while sometimes enjoyable, not necessarily as relevant since they seem to be missing some part of the story or intention. There are definitely collections that defy this loosely-held attitude of mine; in fact, there are some greatest hits collections that made it onto my favorite listening experience list. Joan Armatrading’s Track Record is one of those.

Meet me after the jump for more on Europa Universalis IV: What If? The Anthology of Alternate History.
