Album of the Day

Debut at Dusk, by Blind Owl (1987): Back when I wrote reviews of every new album I bought, I wrote a fairly tepid review of this disc, giving it 2 1/2 stars out of 5. Little did I know that it would provoke a nasty email from the band leader, who accused me of (among other things) heartlessly posting my review shortly after the death of another band member (as if I could know such a thing). In all my musical writings, it's the only negative feedback I've ever gotten. And in the years since, my initial opinion of the album has stayed the same.
