The big news should really be about the Decemberists hitting number one on the Billboard 100 album charts. Not only have the folk rockers ripped the #1 spot away from the pop divas, 4 out of top 5 slots went to rock albums. Yes, rock and roll won the week. Maybe there is some hope for a new rock music revolution.
Cracker reminds me of a 90s version of Decemberists. They were pigeon-holed with other alternative bands and genre of the decade, but always persevered with their own sound. David Lowery has a respected 25-year career to show for it, Decemberists have a #1 record. I call that a win-win.
