That's a no from me, Dog.
Moss Garden - i think it brought my heart rate down 20 bpm The Secret Life of Arabia - sick bassline
listened for a while, but somehow i'm only on track #2? shuffle is off, repeat is off. also not sure if the interviews are part of the album or part of a special edition, but i can't pay close enough attention to get anything out of them. album in general isn't jiving with my mood today.
Owned this one way back in the day. This should be an interesting re-listen. Expecting a healthy dose of nostalgia. Hearing a lot of similarities with the band Self, who I would listen to a lot 4-5 years after this album came out. I remember this being sort of a "guilty pleasure" back in the 90's... probably because it's a "girl band." Listening now makes me want to smack myself - this holds up well. I'd love to hear more of this kind of release today with male OR female leads - short, catchy punk songs that are still palatable rather than just noisy. Hearing major Pixies inspiration behind "Waking Up" - probably lots of Pixies influence throughout the album, but it just now hit me. Fuck, this is really good. How many other albums did I casually listen to in the 90's and then forget about (or write off) that are legit classics these days?
Possibly one of my most listened to albums ever. Feels like I know every note on the album, yet there's still a lot of nostalgia when listening today. Brings me back to riding my bike everywhere in the summer between 8th grade & freshman year. This album and Green Day "Dookie" were the ones in my ear when biking to football practice & then to Muirfield to caddy. These are the kinds of albums that I listened to non-stop as a kid, but for some reason fell into the "guilty pleasures" category after that. Probably because I discovered so much music and went through so many listening phases that I felt like anything I listened to in middle school/high school is sub-par just because I liked it before my music taste "matured".
Tom Waits just ain't my cup of tea.
Classics everyone has heard a million times (not sure I've ever listened to a CCR album besides the Greatest Hits) with some deep tracks that are every bit as good as the hits. Great listen for this morning. 40th Anniversary Edition bonus tracks - "Broken Spoke Shuffle" and "Glory Be" are fantastic instrumental tracks!
I've always enjoyed this one, but I need to sit down and give it the attention it deserves. Not an album to be listened to in the background while doing other things.
Never realized this was KW's highest regarded album (allmusic.com agrees). I would have thought MBDTF would hold that honor. First listen to this one. Good album. More straightforward, less "artsy" than MBDTF.
I loathe U2, but I'll give this a try. For a little bit, at least.
another album i listened to a ton as a kid, but have since written it off as a guilty pleasure. looking forward to this listen. 1/2 way - just as good as i remember it. method has incredible flow compared to most of today's rappers IMO.
