In 2019 Lil Nas X made history with his chart-topping single “Old Town Road.” Now his full-length debut album is out: Montero. Jim and Greg ponder whether his music could ever live up to his larger-than-life persona.
Amyl and the Sniffers are an Australian punk band working in the tradition of X-Ray Spec and The Plasmatics. Their second album, Comfort To Me, doesn’t break new ground, but is great nonetheless if you ask Jim and Greg.
With Golden Hour, Kacey Musgraves won not only critical acclaim, but also massive commercial success. Her follow-up, Star-Crossed, details her experience getting divorced.
On Low’s thirteenth studio album, HEY WHAT partners Mimi Parker and Alan Sparhawk continue the electronic experimentation they added on their previous album, Double Negative. Greg especially appreciates the interplay of the noise and beautiful harmony vocals.
We ask all our favorite guests to choose a song or an album to add to the Desert Island Jukebox, aka songs they can’t live without. This time we hear picks from Richard Thompson, Dawn Richard, Art d’Ecco, Steve Cropper and Damon Locks.

For more than 15 years, Sound Opinions was a production of WBEZ, Chicago's public radio station. Now that the show is independent, we're inviting you to join the band and lend a hand! We need your support more than ever because now we have to do all the behind-the-scenes work that WBEZ handled before (like buying insurance and paying for podcast hosting, ugh). Plus, we have some exciting ideas we'd like to try now that there's no one to tell us no!
