Liked for Chamberlain – doing the Springsteen revival thing years before it was cool.

Also, anyone remember Mock Orange?

Dammit, I accidentally upvoted this dumbass comment.

OK, just read the write-up on the self-titled album and James shits on the only two songs I really like from the album. Obviously we’re wanting very different things from our Malkmus.

Also, pretty vehemently disagree with the write-up on Real Emotional Trash. That album sparkles and those pop tracks like “Gardenia” are among his finest work.

Weird list for me. Didn’t realize Pig Lib was such a favorite. Also, it bums me out how widely dismissed SM’s solo work is.

1. Face The Truth
2. Real Emotional Trash
3. Wig Out At Jag Bags
4. Mirror Traffic
5. Pig Lib
6. S/T

I mean, it’s Agalloch, so this is a “duh” comment, but: KILLER.

Powerslave and Piece Of Mind?

I still stand by my assessment that if you can only enjoy something through an ironic filter, you are doing life wrong. Step away from irony and embrace the ridiculousness and know that something can be flamboyant and fantastical without needing your emotional distancing.

Glad you picked this one. It’s right up there with Open Your Heart for me – a little more assured with less stylistic variety, but the grooves are outstanding. The Men are so on top of what they do and so prolific that they’re already starting to become underrated (I think Ian Cohen said something about a “rut”). These guys will keep churning stuff out and there will likely be less and less people around to hear it each time. That’s too bad, they might actually be getting better.
