no. just no. FUCK OFF. dreadful, dreadful shite.
just saw that.
away with your ideas just tell me to buy pet sounds again!
There don't seem to be many reviews of her material that I can find. Can you recommend a good couple of tracks to try out?
I like Pyramids
and this with The Knife from a few years ago
Speaking of The Knife, their latest album has been on countless end of the year lists. I find it nearly unlistenable
Over on the U2 thread I remembered some people rave about their first albums, except when compared to other contemporary post-punk bands (Joy Division, Chameleons, The Sound, Foxx era Ultravox) they're still incredibly average and bland.
And on newer post-punk, I really don't get what the deal is with Savages. Although I've heard they're a really good live band, the album bored me, yet it also made into a lot of end of the year lists.
well, quite. and with some of the stuff they chose to include on it, it might seem that was partly the point. It's a great record though.
It's just a Penguin with shitty packaging
There's still some nice stories on there though. Oh man, maybe you've got a point but it seems cruel to stick it to Liquid Swords in any way at all.
It's innocent without being naive.
Destroy the Heart
Hmm, bought this the other week (for about £2) but that track isn't on it.
I'm pretty sure it's on the cassette copy from 1989 that I've got
That's a very nice way of describing things, I'll go back
Harrison wrote some good stuff for the Beatles (Something, While My Guitar Gently Weeps etc) but the only good stuff on this was plagiarised (My Sweet Lord).
And If Not For You. Which he didn't write.
It's worth remembering that it was a triple album, with a whole third album called Apple Jam.
Amazing people played on it and it was produced by Phil Spector, but nothing saves it from being a serious case of the emperor's new clothes. A massive ego trip for someone freed from the constraints of needing to convince anybody whatsoever that something was any good. I think of it as partly all the things he wrote that weren't allowed on Beatles albums.

ETA Strictly speaking this is an album that people raved about. Not rave.
Dea ouchmonkey you are on the list.
"definitive" "powerhouse album" "masterpiece" "consistently good" Not my words but of independent reviews.
Not wishing to discard Black Dog or Stairway for one minute....
A dirge. It's miserable. It's wrong...
The creation one or the Fontana one. Both had the same name and initial amazing reviews.
I hated the second one. The first one, though disappointing at the time grew on me. Should have chucked a couple of songs and had the hill and destroy the heart on instead.
I like both. They are playing the Roundhouse in November and I am taking my daughters (11 & 13). Thought it would be a gentle intro to 1990s indie.
Came on thread to post just this. It’s not *bad*, and God Only Knows is wonderful, but my god the hype.
i never heard in Dark Side Of The Moon what everyone else seemed to hear. not shit, but thin gruel.
First I see Zep 4 here, Now dark side
One of the best selling albums, on both sides of the pond, ever. Ground breaking for its day. I still listen to it, though on this morning's walk I listened to wish you were here and animals.
"the lunatics are in this thread..."
Celine Dion is a bestselling artist too.
I went out with a girl who fancied the pants of Celine....no accounting for taste.
Coldplays debut album
why are people posting coldplay? everyone hates them.
Everything song ever in the history of songs ever that involve screaming into a microphone whilst long-haired fans spit on each other and play air guitar. I think it's called heavy metal, and it's fucking shit.
Nah, fucking loads of people rate them, as you well know.
Sorry for posting a perfectly reasonable reply to a thread about shit music.
You come across as someone who has heard one or two metal songs you didn't like and now you think it's all like that.
I'm pushing 50 years old. I've heard lots of it. Far too much, in fact.
Separate names with a comma.
