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.

All Saints (1997)
"MY WIFE BOUGHT WHAT?!?" FORTNIGHT* (JULY 1-14, 2016)
From the All Music: "BRIT Award-winning all-female vocal group whose soulful pop music first hit the charts in the late '90s."
From the Wikipedia: "British girl band"
From Mark: weak sauce Spice Girls wannabes (pun intended). I don't really want to listen to the Spice Girls, either. Not terrible, but not terribly interesting. For this type of music, give me Eternal.
Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: #40
Tracks: Guessing my wife bought this for the lead track Never Ever, which charted at #4 in the Billboard Hot 100. It's a long, slow, repetitive shuffle that I kinda sorta remember. The album does contain some laughable covers of Under The Bridge and Lady Marmalade. The best song on the disc is Heaven.
Personal Memory Associated with this CD: Nope.
*I recently unearthed a CD carry case that my wife used to carry in one or more of our three former minivans. This month, in the spirit of this blog's mission, I'll be listening to that case's contents.
