Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

Dave Matthews Band - Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King (2009)
The last DMB CD I purchased and, by that, I mean it will be the last DMB CD I purchase. I either love or hate the band's songs, which wouldn't be a problem if I loved more of the songs and hated less of them. As it is, with the possible exceptions of Stand Up or Everyday, I usually only enjoy about ⅓ of each album. So I think it's time to end this love/hate relationship. I hope we can still be friends, Dave.
Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: #1 (1 week, June 20, 2009)
Tracks: The ⅓ of this disc that I like are the songs Shake Me Like A Monkey, Why I Am, Squirm, and Seven.
Personal Memory Associated with this CD: None
