Robin Meade: "Brand New Day" Album Review



We’ve had a few recent mentions of country music here on The UC, and normally, for no particular reason, I avoid this genre like the plague…especially pop country. However, it is official that NFL wide receiver and constant media attention whore, Chad Ochocino, and yes that is his real legal name, has officially endorsed Robin Meade’s country album.

ochocinco: ...I love @robinmeade new album "Brand New Day" forcing locker room to listen to it.

In the recent weeks, I have become a bit of a Robin Meade addict, and I will submit the page “Celeb Stuff” as evidence (as of December 8th 2011). Since I learned that this album “Brand New Day” is now a favorite of dirty sweaty men, I realized that I have to give this a try. You can't see, but I am one filthy Mother Fu*ker.

I listened to a few tracks of “Brand New Day,” and I can say that Robin Meade is a fine singer. Some people online were complaining about her voice, and I don’t find any problem with that.

On her track “Dirty Laundry,” I am glad they chose a song relevant to her career as an HLN broadcaster in a satirical and humorous tone. It’s rather perfect. However, the instrumentals remind me of some of the many reasons why I avoid country music. There is nothing wrong with folk or twang in your music….as long as it isn’t the ONLY thing in your music.

This is a video of Robin Meade singing with the African Children’s Choir, and it is definitely worth the watch and listen. Robin does well again; however, I will say that what this lacks is African feel and needs more African passion and energy.



Star System = 6.9 Stars/10 (69 Giggle Giggle)

This is an album that is filled with highs and lows. As previously mentioned, Robin Meade is a fine singer. Some of the instrumental arranging is not so hot, but it is a fun set of songs. Music has to be fun. However, I will note that the cover photo (seen above at the top) really looks unflattering for someone like Robin Meade. It doesn’t truly capture her attractive features, and don’t tell her I said this, but it makes her look 42 :O = Gasp.

Who is your favorite country singer? Do you like Pop Country?
And who is your favorite 40+ individual?

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso
