Re: SMiLE!

I was listening to Brian Wilson SMiLE yesterday and had a vague recollection of this thread pop into my brain. I'm interested to know how time and the release of The Smile Sessions have changed your reception of BWS. I prefer listening to The Beach Boys version, but I still enjoy the Brian Wilson o...

Re: Do I need OU812 and F.U.C.K.?

Did anyone happen to catch VH's stint on Jimmy Kimmel (or was it Fallon?) I saw one of the nights and it was embarrassingly bad. Diamond Dave sounded like he couldn't hear the band or himself singing.

Re: GloNo Recs That Still Get Heavy Rotation

I still think that Being There -> Summerteeth -> Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is one of the finest stretches for any band of that era. Couldn't agree more. The only one that I think even gives it a run for its money from that era is The Bends -> OK Computer -> Kid A. Never could get into Arcade Fire or Bon...

GloNo Recs That Still Get Heavy Rotation

I thought of this the other day when listening to the Exposure version of Peter Gabriel's "Here Comes the Flood," which was recommended on GloNo wayyy back in the day and has become a staple of my listening, as has a heavy dose of The Replacements (whom I listened to prior to GloNo, but de...

Re: The Greatness of LCD Soundsystem's "All My Friends"

Well, well, well. Look who's gotten old and fat. Oh wait, I was already fat. I am old, however, and find my attitude towards music getting more crotchety by the day. But that Bleachers record makes me feel alive and somewhat hip, so there's that...

(currently at 5420/11570 or 46.8% never played) i'm not adding at nearly the clip you were (i think my total # may have actually gone DOWN since starting this) but i'm making good progress and enjoying the ride, even putting together a little playlist of ...

this had the exact opposite effect on me from the fred durst video. while the durst one showed me a side of a previously unreemable musician that made me think "hey, i could maybe hang out with this guy and not want to kick him in the teeth at the end of the day," this video moved alanis f...
