“That’s a mystery to me, ’cause I don’t get it.” This quote sums up Billy’s problem perfectly. And what’s all this about competition? What is Billy trying to win a Grammy or something? He needs to let it go and do his own thing – his best writing was in Siamese Dream and Gish, before he considered himself to be in competition with his “contemporaries.”
Definitely the White Album!
Don’t Look Back in Anger
Who’s the extra guitarist in the back?
One of my favorite things about Jack was always his wailing guitar solos (i.e. Ball & Buscuit), but lately (solo albums), he seems set on playing the highest, pluckiest notes possible. Come on Jack, let those strings sing!
Thank you thank you thank you!! So sick…
I mean, can you imagine J singing Drain You?! And the guitar??!!
I hope somebody has footage of the J Mascis songs!
Definitely not the best album, but I think it created more MM fans than it alienated. I was a casual MM listener before Good News, but this album prompted me to buy their back-catalog, of which I love Moon the most. I can put their whole discography on shuffle now, and while Good News songs aren’t my favorites, they mix in without offending too much…
Not what you’d think… my favorite is Yellow Ledbetter
