Default Phonogenics 'Time' Podcast - track by track discussion

Hot on the heels of that amazing Bekka Bramlett interview, the crew met to discuss the 'Time' album track by track.

I had never listened to it, and I always wrote it off as garbage. In fact, only one person from the panel had ever heard it. We decided to listen to it together and then all give our initial reactions. Here's what we came up with:

I agree with the panel Time is a good album with the exception of Blow by Blow. Christine brought her A game as always. Iím surprised no mentioned that Lindsey is credited as ďAdditional background Vocal ď on Nothing Without You.

Thanks for doing this, Jeremy. It's great that you and your friends went into this with open minds (something that isn't always apparent when discussing this album). I enjoyed your critiques. 8.2 from Jim! I liked the comparison of "Sooner or Later" to "Sands of Time".

I love the fact that we got five pretty good Christine songs out of this project, although it's unfortunate that the guitar duties on her tracks are largely take up by a session player; that there was a bit of an eclectic mix with the other members that occasionally really paid off (I'm thinking of Bekka here) and the weirdness of Mick's track. There's really only one clunker here ( which is 3 or 4 fewer than on BTM) and that's "Blow by Blow".

I agree "All over again" should have closed it.

I really didn't like the version of "Blow By Blow" that made the album, but the version from "Soccer Rocks The Globe" wasn't that bad. It was way better by comparison.

I also sought out the soccer version of "Blow By Blow" - I liked the music better but missed Bekka's harmonies.

The "Time" version sounds like they rolled in the Wild Heart synthesizer into the studio lol!

I've always liked Blow By Blow, JUST FOR BEKKA'S VOCALS on it. That chick is bad ass!
