Episode 99 - Episodes from the Crypt, Part VIII - Gary Numan/Tubeway Army - Replicas w/ Special Guest Josh Carlsen

10/14/2017
More
We’re continuing our re-visitation of “Episodes from the Crypt”, where we delve into the darker side of life. This time we’re delving into nihilism and a dystopian future when we discuss Gary Numan/Tubeway Army’s second studio album, 1979’s “Replicas”. And we’re bringing Josh Carlsen along for the ride. “Replicas” was a bit of a shift from Tubeway Army’s first album, and this shift would propel the rest of Gary Numan’s career. But what of this album? Was it synthpop/darkwave masterpiece that...

Episode 98 - Episodes from the Crypt, Part VII - Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP

It’s October, so you know what that means, kids. That’s right, this month we’re revisiting “Episodes from the Crypt”, where we delve into the darker side of life. And we’re starting it off with violence and horror when we discuss Eminem’s third studio album, 2000’s “The Marshall Mathers LP”. Fueled by the album’s controversy and building off the success of his previous release, “The Slim Shady LP”, “The Marshall Mathers LP” would become Eminem’s biggest selling album ever. But what of this...

Episode 97 - Off the Rails Month, Part X - Lou Reed and Metallica - Lulu w/ Special Guest Evan Harris

More
Today we’re closing out this re-visitation of “Off the Rails Month”, where we take a look at albums that seemingly came out of left field, with another ultimate off the rails album when we take a look at Lou Reed’s and Metallica’s collaboration, 2011’s “Lulu”. And we’re bringing Evan Harris from The Bearded Ones: Comedy Podcast along for the ride. Seen as an odd collaboration from the start, “Lulu” was one of the more controversial releases for both Metallica and Lou Reed. But what of this...

Episode 96 - Off the Rails Month, Part IX - U2 - Pop

9/23/2017
More
Today we’re continuing our re-visitation of “Off the Rails Month”, where we take a look at albums that seemingly came out of left field, by asking that musical question, “What happens when yet another guitar-driven band abandons the sound that made them famous in favor of the sound of the day?” when we discuss U2’s ninth studio album, 1997’s “Pop”. Deciding to trade in their almost trademark guitar sound for a more techno sound, “Pop” sold well at first but sales quickly dropped off, and...

Today, we’re plodding along in our re-visitation of “Off the Rails Month”, where we take a look at albums that seemingly came out of left field, by asking that musical question, “What happens when a guitar-driven band abandons the sound that made them famous?” when we discuss The Smashing Pumpkins’ fourth studio album, 1998’s “Adore”. Going for a more intimate and personal album after facing a series of personal and professional setbacks, “Adore” became a polarizing album among critics and...

Episode 94 - Off the Rails Month, Part VII - Judas Priest - Turbo w/ Special Guest Jayln Graham Owens

9/9/2017
More
We’re continuing our re-visitation of “Off the Rails Month”, where we take a look at albums that seemingly came out of left field, with Judas Priest’s tenth studio album, 1986’s “Turbo”. And we’re bringing Jalyn Graham Owens (author of “Graham: the First Twenty”) from “Heavy Metal Parking Lot” along for the ride. Upon its release, “Turbo” sold well initially and was Judas Priest’s last platinum album, but sales quickly tapered off and it has since become a controversial album. But what of...

Episode 93 - Off the Rails Month, Part VI - Faith No More - King for a Day… Fool for a Lifetime w/ Special Guest Ian Wadley

This is the first Saturday of a new month. So you know that means kids. That’s right, it’s another theme month here at Iron-Cast! This month we’re revisiting “Off the Rails Month”, where we take a look at albums that seemingly came out of left field. And we’re starting off by bringing Ian Wadley from the Rock and Metal Combat Podcast and Wadzilla World to discuss Faith No More’s fifth album, 1995’s “King for a Day… Fool for a Lifetime”. “King for a Day” was released to mixed reviews and...

Episode 92 - Queen - A Day at the Races

8/26/2017
More
Today we close out August with our third foray into Queen’s discography, this time discussing their fifth studio album, 1976’s “A Day at the Races”. Sandwiched between two mega-selling albums, “A Day at the Races”, while still going platinum, could be seen as a bit of a disappointment when compared to “A Night at the Opera” and “News of the World”. But what of this album? Was it an under-appreciated gem (or as under-appreciated as a platinum album could be), or was it a rushed effort and a...

Episode 91 - Interpol - Turn on the Bright Lights (15th Anniversary Special)

8/21/2017
More
Join us as we discuss an album that celebrated its 15th anniversary this past Sunday (20 August), the debut release from Interpol, “Turn on the Bright Lights”. This album has been seen as helping define indie rock in the early 2000s and has been cited as an influence on various indie rock bands. But what of this album? Was this album a modern post-punk classic, or was it a monotonous Joy Division rip-off? Tune in to find out.

Episode 90 - Amy Winehouse - Back to Black

8/13/2017
More
Join us today when we at Iron-Cast get into some soul by discussing the 2006 sophomore (and final) studio album from Amy Winehouse, “Back to Black”. When it was released, the album’s retro sound was quite the stand out, leading “Back to Black” to selling millions worldwide and earning multiple awards. But what of this album? Was it a 21st-century soul classic, or was it an over-hyped and overrated re-tread? Tune in to find out. Plus we give our favorite moments from episodes 81 to 90.

Episode 89 - Deep Purple - Perfect Strangers

8/5/2017
More
Today, Iron-Cast delves once more into Ritchie Blackmore’s catalog when we discuss Deep Purple’s 1984 reunion album, “Perfect Strangers”. Deep Purple’s first studio album in nine years, “Perfect Strangers” became the band’s most successful album. But what of it? Is it a triumphant return and everything about what a reunion album should be, or is it a rushed cash-grab designed to cash in on the new metal craze? Tune in to find out. Plus we read your fan mail… the saga of Big Jim continues…

It’s “Part Deux” of “Versus Month”, where we take a look at albums released at about the same time by former band members and see which one is better. This time we’re going to 1982 and we’re asking that musical question, “what happens when a band’s principal songwriter leaves because his first band was getting too popular only to have his second band become even more popular?” when we delve into Yazoo’s debut album “Upstairs at Eric’s” and Depeche Mode’s sophomore album “A Broken Frame”....

Iron-Cast takes its first look into blues today when we discuss Coco Montoya’s 1995 debut release, “Gotta Mind to Travel”. After spending years in Albert Collins’ band and in John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Coco finally struck out on his own with this release. But what of it? Is it a bit of blues gold or is it just generic? Tune in to find out. Plus what we did during our hiatus and we read more fan mail.

We give our selections for the following spots: lead vocals/frontman, guitar, bass, drums and wildcard, and we also give...
