Certified Lover Boy Drake

Drake Certified Lover Boy

Jim and Greg share their thoughts on the new record from Drake, Certified Lover Boy. The rapper's sixth studio album comes almost as a response to Kanye West’s new release the previous week, Donda, the latest in an ongoing feud between the former friends.

If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power Halsey

Halsey If I Cant Have Love, I Want Power

If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power is Halsey's fourth studio album. This time, the artist teamed up with production duo Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails to create something unlike anything they've made before. Jim and Greg give their two cents on the record and are a bit divided.

Art d’Ecco


The hosts first reviewed Art d’Ecco’s third album In Standard Definition back in May and became instant fans of his glam rock, hook-laden music. Jim and Greg chat with Art about how he found his on-stage persona, his artistic influences and the fickle nature of fame.

Dear Listeners,

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!
