    Day 12 - Celebrate women.

    At no point in her musical career was Chrissie Hynde not totally in control of her band. A total badass.

    The first couple Pretenders records are two of the best debut/follow up LPs of all time.

    And the original lineup was an unstoppable beast live.

    I love this band. I wish that they got more recognition. Their debut and second album (this one) were some of my most played records 10 years ago.

    Just the Star Trek theme for this one...the rest is pretty cheesy and really not worth the listen.

    Mostly known for being the back-up singer for Puscifer, she has quite a few solo albums that are really good, this one being her 3rd album.

    Day 10 - VMP should do an exclusive from…

    Mastodon - Crack the Skye

    Probably my top favourite metal album of all time, and we all know VMP is due for another metal ROTM.

    Day 11 - Voyager 3

    Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven

    For a few reasons. One, I think it's one of the best pieces of music in the last few decades; two, it kind of maintains the spirit of the first Voyager record with all the found music and field recordings; and three, well, read the title of the album. Song-wise, I'd probably choose "Sleep", the third side, but any would do just fine.

    Day 11 - Voyager 3

    This record by the late record by Leonard Cohen is mesmerizing in the intensity of its emotional content. Rather dark at times, I believe it deserves its place on Voyager 3 because, while we want to promote musical excellence (of which this album exhibits rather well), we also want to show the human experience in all its facets, and what is more human than our emotions, especially those of an overwhelming nature? That is why my pick from this album is ''Avalanche''.

    Leonard Cohen - Songs of Love and Hate (1971)

    Moreover, I couldn't do a Canadian month without at least one Cohen record.

    Day 12 - Celebrating Women

    This Montreal band rocks! Lee-La Baum's voice, reminiscent of Janis Joplin's, is helping bring blues rock back into vogue in La Belle Province. Just hot off their first American tour, they will be ZZ Top's supporting act on the Canadian leg of their current tour.

    Day 13 - National French Fry Day

    This one definitely rates as a guilty pleasure, with it's 80's hairstyle and bombastic pop rock heavily featuring synthesizers. ''Celle Qui Va'', meaning ''The One Who Goes'' is about a woman reinventing herself after getting out of a long term relationship, as she is going her own way. This could also be a metaphor for the singer's career, as this was Marjolaine Morin's first solo album after performing for years with one of Quebec's most well-known rock band, Corbeau (Crow). Looking at the clip's aesthetic and Marjo's performance style, it's not hard to believe that she was a model before beginning her career as a performer. Yes, it's kitsch, but it's a favorite karaoke performance.

    For comparison, here's one of the most famous Corbeau songs:

    Day 13: National French Fry Day

    I don’t really have any albums I personally consider “guilty pleasures”, so here’s a bit of a variation on that.

    I still really love this album, but given the artist has rape accusations against her and she’s been mostly silent since they came out (aside from a response track, which wasn’t exactly the classiest move to make)... I don’t know, I’m mostly conflicted but there’s a bit of guilt there too.
