While just about every critic and fan has a favorite Roches album that was inexplicably ignored, most will probably agree that Speak was the one that really should have gone gold. All of the ingredients for a huge album are here: emotional yet accessible songs, radio-friendly folk-pop arrangements, and the sisters' usual mind-blowing vocal pyrotechnics. True, the title cut does have harmonies and cadences that are more typical of Bulgarian music, but much of the rest of this album is radio-ready. "Big Nuthin" and "Person With a Past" are two obvious hits, but there are plenty more; in fact, this album doesn't have a dud track from end to end.
This is the flagship course from Dr. Bogard's Time to Learn German school, offered here at Udemy at a special price. This is a professional, effective, full semester video course that makes it possible for you to have a conversation in German much faster than in any traditional classroom. You won't get a podcast course with the professor lecturing, while you stare at a static image that's been turned into a video. You won't be falling asleep either, because you will be engaged in challenging work, that moves along at the pace you choose. You will watch Dr. Bogard, and complete your lessons, as she walks you step by step through the process of acquiring German. The entire course should take you about 12-16 weeks to complete.
