500 Greatest Albums: Volume 1

We’re testing out a new show format, and we have special guest David Leisten from the Verse Chorus Verse podcast to help us out! We’ve each chosen one of Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums (2020) and are giving our thoughts. Bethanne kicks it off with Stevie Wonder’s Songs in the Key of Life (#4), Leah discusses The Beatles’ Abbey Road (#5) and David wraps it up with Lauryn Hill’s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (#10). 

About Verse Chorus Verse

Verse Chorus Verse follows Svend Knutsen and David Leisten, a pair of friends and musical collaborators sharing their opinions on anything music. New album reviews, classic album reviews, band dissections, years in music, guests that share their passions, interviews with career musicians and anything else they feel like at the time.

With very different backgrounds in music, Svend Knutsen and David Leisten may seem like a pair that wouldn’t work well together. The son of a piano teacher, Svend was consistently given new instruments to study and genres to appreciate, giving him a wealth of knowledge. Beyond the one or two years of violin or piano, David was mostly self-educated. Together through different levels of music education and bands, they built their reputations as respected appreciators of music from all eras.
