Well, I guess it's tomorrow in Australia because they're already up on Spotify here and I'm listening to Dirty Deeds right now. Fuck the fun police, I love this stuff.

This might be the first time I'm glad to see the words 'This video is not available in your country.'

"Lanegan's performance on "A Song For The Death" channels John Garcia and then beats him at his own game." No offence to the writer but I find this perplexing (apart from the song name being wrong), Lanegan channeling Garcia? The only thing only thing Lanegan channels on Songs for the Deaf is a voice that sounds like the four horsemen of the apocalypse riding into town.

I'm in the anti-Woods group and it's not to be a troll, I love this band with every fiber of my body. I think One Beat is the perfect embodiment of what is great about SK and it's as if every album was building to that moment. While it has few good tracks, the Woods just seems directionless and shambolic. It didn't surprise me they broke up after that because it was felt like they'd lost their momentum. I saw them on both the One Beat and Woods tours, the former concert was one of the best shows I've ever seen while the Woods show was listless and unfocussed. Maybe they were having a bad night but the Woods never worked for me. Whatever, different strokes etc...

January 9, 2013 on David Bowie – “Where Are We Now?” Video & The Next Day Details
I can't really argue with the first three choices but No Pocky and Majesty Shredding would be higher in my list. Indoor Living and Come Pick Me Up were good but a shadow of the three records that came before them. I have a soft spot for Here's to shutting up which is often reviled by some of my friends but there's a lot of depth to that record. It's a hard list to compile though, like picking a favourite child or Bee Gee.

As you can tell by my user name, I might have an opinion about this. I think this would be hard for anyone to put together because while the lesser works are easy to single out, it's harder to distinguish between Bob's best and I'm sure my list would change on any given day. Copper Blue at number 1 seems right to me because it is the perfect distillation of Bob's sound and style and it is all Bob, Husker's is a two headed monster and probably deserves its own list (no use starting the Grant vs Bob thing here - that argument was played out twenty years ago). The only things I would change: Zen Arcade and Warehouse would be higher although New Day Rising remains my favourite. File Under Easy Listening is too high, it's got some great songs but it really isn't close to Beaster or Copper Blue or half the records below it. While I wouldn't raise it too much, Body of Song actually contains some of Bob's best post 2000 songs but they're the deeper cuts towards the end. Also, no land speed record? - sure it's almost unlistenable but it was Husker's first album. It's been a good few years for Bob fans as it seems like he is finally getting the recognition he deserves and let's face it, Silver age fucking rocks. Thanks for the list although if you've read Bob's autobiography, I think your description of Greg Norton might be a little charitable.
