rEVOLVEr by T-Pain. We're trying out a new format this week! Surprise! We decided to focus less on comprehensiveness, and more on just being enjoyable and entertaining. That is, the old format was increasingly leading to perfunctory song discussions, and nobody wants that. Anyway, this week we talked about T-Pain's studio album Revolver. It's not as memorable as his earliest releases, but there's some solid stuff here. Some really frikken weird stuff, too, but some solid stuff...

Prevolver by T-Pain, part 2. T-Pain has a habit of releasing mixtapes to supplement his albums. This one is a predecessor to his 2011 album Revolver (no, not the Beatles one).

But we keep things wholesome and definitely don’t use any salty language, especially when quoting Lil Wayne. Learnin' Links: Kendrick’s untitled...

Epiphany by T-Pain. It's T-Pain's biggest album, or at least it has his biggest single "Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin')". It's a good album!

Roots by Curtis Mayfield. It’s our last interlude episode for now! This week, Cameron tries to convince us all that Curtis Mayfield’s 1971 album Roots is really cool and interesting.

Paris 1919 by John Cale. Are you ready? It's time for Nathan's English-Class Bullshit Time, the part of the show where Nathan tries to turn his podcast into an English class—because those are renowned for being soooooo entertaining! As part of their "playing" with their "format," Nathan and Cameron are taking a short break from exploring artists' back catalogs to talk about albums they already like. Nathan chose John Cale's 1973 magnum opus Paris 1919, which he still loves even though it's...
