I like that they are Scottish. And I could listen to a few songs, but not the whole album at once. It doesn't feel punk enough, but I enjoyed it. Favorites: - In a Hole - The Hardest Walk
I was introduced to Minor Threat my Freshman year of college by a bunch of straight edge friends. This brought back fun memories.
Hey, That's No Way to Say Goodbye's chorus is one I find myself singing randomly. I first listened to this album when I was 17 and my parent's were going through a divorce. I think that is why I remember all of them so well. I love this album. There is some repetition, but I like that its intentional and a mood.
Yes all around.
Listening to this is like wearing a weighted blanket (insert heart). Reminds me of my peak NYC living years. Struck by how much "NY, I Love You But You Are Bringing Me Down" reminds me of Violent Femmes this time around. Favorite tracks this listen: "Time to Get Away" & "All My Friends".
A first time listen for me! Much more familiar with later Arcade Fire albums. I like it - a bit more gritty, maybe slower? All round enjoyable listen.
I mean with lyrics like this, accompanied by a flute, how can one not give a 5? "And if a double-decker bus Crashes into us To die by your side Is such a heavenly way to die And if a ten ton truck Kills the both of us To die by your side Well, the pleasure, the privilege is mine"
Admittedly did not have the chance to listen to it in entirety...
As a kid, Daydream Believer was my most favorite song. As an adult, I could not listen to any one song all the way through.
This is my first Kraftwerk experience. Things this album invoked: Adam Sandler's bandmate in The Wedding Singer. Stefon from SNL. Endless track - hear a little bit of Radiohead from Kid A in there. I AM HERE FOR IT.
