1. Shout - Great, albeit a bit long. 2. The Working Hour - Kind of blows, honestly. 3. Everybody Wants to Rule the World - A huge song for a reason. Catchy, cool production, dynamic. 4. Mothers Talk - First thoughts: this song slaps. Later thoughts: Still slaps. 5. I Believe - accidentally ignored almost all of this song. Not my thing. 6. Broken - ANOTHER SLAPPER. Also, tone. 7. Head Over Heels / Broken - I dig the continued use of the motif from the prior track. Sick bass in the opening. Got some Hall and Oates vibes here and there. I really dig all of the falsetto. The head over heels refrain part seems very familiar, but I don't think I actually know the song as a whole. 8. Listen - Slow to start, and doesn't seem to really ever get going... I kind of feel like they just had too much fun dicking around with noises/effects/chimes in the studio. The synthy organ tone while he sings reminds me of Bill Wurtz, which is funny. Overall this song is meh. This album does have some really good New Wave on it. Shout, Everybody Wants to Rule the World, Mothers Talk, Head Over Heels / Broken, and Broken are all really good tunes.
Classic. So good.
I hadn’t listened to this album before this project. I really enjoyed all the grooves and different song flows.
This album fucking rules and will always rule.
This album is great. Some lesser known Manson tracks on here, but plenty of great jams. Plus some hits.
Probably my favorite version of Gloria from anyone.
I will always love this album so much.
Hope that I continue not enjoying music like this.
Holy high energy, Batman!
Classic. I LOVE this album.
Not my favorite Miles.
Raw, weird, and good. Cool story about the recording too - they didn’t really let the band that recorded with him practice the songs too much, so none of them really knew them that well. Also didn’t know that the lyrics in Passenger Side from Wilco were making a reference to a song from this album.
There are some cool elements to this album and his songwriting/lyricism are very interesting. I would imagine that Leonard Cohen had a bit of influence on Kurt Cobain, honestly. Overall, though - not really an album I would just put on to listen to for fun.
