Amazing what a little planning can do.
Eliyahu M. Goldratt: The Goal
If you haven't read this book yet, then there is a big chance that YOU are the bottleneck! (*****)
R. J. Rummel: Death by Government
Fascinating in its review of 20th century genocide, the book is no less interesting in one of its other premises: that democracies generally do not make war on one another. War historically requires one or more dictatorships. Good book. (****)
The Polyphonic Spree: Together We're Heavy
Just as silly as the first CD, but a little more integrated. It is a kind of throwback to the concept albums of the 70's, just as The Polyphonic Spree is itself a throwback to Jesus Freaks, Rock Operas and mood albums. This new effort is more controlled and just as happy in its message. Good for headphone listening when you need an hour's worth of happy head music. (****)
You And I Both
Jason Mraz: Waiting For My Rocket To Come
Just great. Good guitar work, excellent songwriting and a spirited performance. (****)
The Polyphonic Spree: The Beginning Stages Of...
I have no idea how to describe this music except to say that it is inventive, repetitive and happy. (***)
