Holy shit! I had no idea I knew so many of these songs or that Harry Nilsson sang them ("put the lime in the coconut.." Classic production from its era. Will add to regular rotation.
This was decidedly okay for me. Decent background music for work.
Father of garage rock?
This isn't my cup of tea.
Some of these songs sound dated (in good and bad ways). Some seem oddly prescient.
Love this album-- excellent for those late spring nights on the patio, when the wind blows through the open windows of the house
Not bad-- good background music for working or chilling.
Added to my catalog. Love discovering nuggets like this.
Classic early-mid 90s angst and edge. Finally glad to have listened to a complete album from The Afghan Whigs, but I don't think I'll listen again.
Couldn't make it through this one :(
Eh- I made it through two songs. I understand how this album matters... I'm just not at a place to be able to appreciate it.
Good background music.
Some of these sounds sound fresh and shine as influences for Songs: Ohio and similar Secretly Canadian bands.
Good chill party music
Just as relevant now as it was when released 31 years ago. Sooooo good.
Surprised I missed this when it first came out. There are elements of many different musical tastes throughout the (very expansive) album. It's like lounge-Beck w/ mixtures of jazz, folk, and mellow rock. I'm listening to the 20th-anniversary release, which includes remastered and remixed versions (not sure if those are included in the original.
Pretty okay-- this album transports me to a dark and smoky lounge, where I'm listening to the man at the piano sing and reminisce while I'm sipping on a Manhattan or martini.
I'm not at a place where I can appreciate the energy and volume of their abrasive and scream-fueled rock.
Pretty chill and enjoyable.
What 90s rock wanted 80s rock to be.
I remember listening to this cassette in my '78 Monte Carlo. I recall being more fond of it back then-- the melodies were catchy, and I was more into a non-critical hippyish view of the world. While some of the tracks resonate, most of the album doesn't age as well and comes off as a two dimensional, sophomoric and whitewashed ignorance of social oppression, opting instead to simply "love harder" and be involved in slightly alt- scenes. Ah, it was a simpler time then; one much easier to ignore when one was white, male, and middle class.
One of Martha's favorites! Ah-- the sparse and low-fi production of the 90s
Love the beats and groove. Dislike the vulgarity.
Really enjoyable-- dig this
Excellent production, songwriting, and lyrics.
Eh, not for me.
