I like Spoon but I don’t understand why so many people love this song. Listened a few times, but maybe I should listen some more…
Embryonic is my second favourite after Soft Bulletin. I also really like The Terror.
It’s hard to compare them because they’re such different albums, but I think Embryonic is really fabulous and right up my alley.
I agree with the poster below, cheap_suit that Yoshimi hasn’t aged well. I don’t listen to it much at all.
I think it’s really underrated.
At first I thought Congratulations was a huge disappointment. I then grew to love it.
At first I thought the recent self titled album was a disappointment. I then grew to love it.
It’s not as good as Congratulations, but I do still love it and listen to it quite a bit.
This may be the most Dan Bejariest thing Dan Bejar has ever done. So on brand. I don’t care, I don’t care.
Like he’s going to sing in his music video. Please, he has shirt buttons to unbutton and places to lounge about in.
“The funhouse mirror Zeppelin songs” is a great way to put that, and I agree. Those are the standouts and the sort of pastiche country songs pull the album down.
With that said, I’ve only listened a few times and those songs might reveal themselves to me to be beautiful over time. We’ll see!
Poison is actually a song from the Rocket Juice and the Moon album, not his new album.
Nobody’s forcing you to pay attention. How horrible that some people out there are just doing what they want to do and some other people really like it and give them enough money to continue.
Not only is she from Canada but her first language is French.
Not to mention the first ad glamorized abusing women.
Congratulations is an incredibly underrated album. It’s definitely the better of the two, IMO. It’s just very different and needs some time to sink in.
