Permanent Record Podcast

Brian and Sarah are your hosts for this look back at albums from the New Wave and Classic Rock genres-- albums which have earned a permanent spot in their record collection. The hosts start the discussion with a history of the album, followed by their personal history with it. Over the course of two episodes, they do a track-by-track review of the album and the videos that accompany the singles. They conclude by each giving the album a final review and rating of zero to five record adapters. Join Brian and Sarah in this fun look back at the hits-- along with some misses-- of the 70s and 80s!

Episode 131: U2 - The Joshua Tree (1987) Part 2

Brian, Sarah, and their special guest Tom Austin-Morgan are back to talk more U2! As a reminder, Tom has an excellent podcast called Banned Biographies which delves into the careers of some rather notorious bands, so be sure to check it out-- after you're done listening to this episode, of course.

Track by Track review, continued

Last time the three hosts talked about The Joshua Tree, they only got as far as the 1987 album's opening track, so there are many more songs to discuss! This episode finds them talking about three more songs and two more videos. They also end up talking about Las Vegas, oversized slot machines, the TV show Friends, Thomas Dolby, and some differences in American English versus British English.

Songs discussed in this episode:
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
With Or Without You
Bullet the Blue Sky
