Colonel Jeffrey Pumpernickel

Concept albumns, especially recent attempts at rock operas are notoriously bad. A while back I was given Carrot Boy the Beautiful, pretty much the worst thing I've ever put in my ears. Truly horrible stuff…

So I was a little nervous buying “Colnel Jeffrey Pupmpernickel: A Concept Album”, but got suckered in by the fact that some of the artwork was done by Jim Woodring and the fact that Guided By Voices, Macha, and some other folks I enjoy did tracks. Unfortunately, with the exception of an incredible track by The Black Heart Procession (click to listen) it's not the greatest. The Macha and GBV stuff is decent too, but unless you're willing to buy albums for a few tracks, don't bother…

The only good rock opera ever put out is FLAN.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
