Welcome to Aural Examination, a place for lovers of music great and small, serious and casual. I’m Steve Flemming Jr., and I’ll be your host.
The mission here? Exploration of music, from Top 40 ditties to long-forgotten dusties. The beauty of music is there’s something in the cosmos for everyone, and this site will tap into that. From the sophisticated soul of the Main Ingredient to the pop perfection of Madonna, modern music’s many enclaves will be mined for discussion and debate.
It is my hope that visitors – and myself for that matter – will leave with a new artist to explore or an overall broader perspective on recorded sound. Since opinions are like assholes – everybody’s got them and they can be downright funky – I hope visitors can exchange views free of the acerbic drama that weighs down other blogs. I like to keep things civil.
So with that said, welcome to Aural Examination … hopefully it will satisfy your aural fixation.
