Album Review
MC Dizzy Jackson
Reviewed 2014-04-08 
Third album from baseball-loving musicians including Mike Mills and Peter Buck of R.E.M. It’s got an alt-country, rockin’ vibe w/ gtrs, bass, drums, keys. Fantastic stories of characters and teams of MLB. Great stuff. No FCC’s.

*My Favorites*: the whole double-header (18 songs).

1. (1:38) Mid. Rockin’ heavy beat over statistical #’s.
2. (2:56) Mid. Poppy vibe; Lenny Dykstra’s fall from greatness.
3. (3:55) Mid / Fast. Mean vibe; Non-Americans ordeals to get to MLB.
4. (4:08) Mid. Plodding beat; Alex Rodriguez’ travails in and out of baseball.
5. (4:34) Mid. Menacing gtr, anthemic; Dock Ellis head-hunting Reds hitters.
6. (2:18) Mid. Amped indie fare; plea to Hall Of Fame for Dale Murphy nod.
7. (4:28) Mid. Easy going; Yankee who never made it into Monument Park.
8. (4:04) Mid. Alt-country vibe; a fan who loves box scores.
9. (3:29) Mid. Drivin’ rockin’; Hank Aaron’s story. Great stuff.
10. (3:38) Slow / Mid. Tender ballad; Babe Ruth’s story. More great stuff.
11. (3:13) Mid. Rockin’ strut; all about the Oakland A’s.
12. (3:32) Mid. Poppy indie vibe; Pascual Perez can’t find his own park.
13. (3:17) Mid. Country vibe; a baseball card collector w/ circus ending.
14. (4:17) Slow / Mid. Schlocky lounge; baseball / love metaphor.
15. (3:41) Mid. Alt-country; tragicomedy story of Larry Yount, Robin’s brother.
16. (2:26) Mid / Fast. Full-throttle rockin’ country; Cy Young’s song. Killer.
17. (4:52) Mid. Rockin’ w/ harmonica; a bunch of wayward players.
18. (1:03) Mid / Fast. Rockin’; ‘Take Me Out To The Ball Game’.
