Those last two tracks are a total waste and once I heard them it made me mad I spent $27 on a glorified EP. “Nothing Is” is a pointless loop and “Wonder 2″ is just aimless noise. First 7 tracks are pretty good though.
Oh and don’t forget the ironic .gif to really put me in my place.
Great album and one of the best of the 90′s. Someone who likes twee indie bands or those wussy beard flannel mandolin indie folk bands like Sanford & Songs is definitely not going to be down with this album so that fat guy Kevin’s comments are not surprising. Indie rock fans can’t handle any band that shows any hint of masculinity or testosterone since they’re usually dork vegans that got bullied in high school. If you can’t hear the brilliance of songs like “Rain When I Die”, “Rooster”, “Down In A Hole” and “Would?” I’d venture to say that you don’t like rock music at all.
Not to mention that he can pretty much smoke any drummer on that list too.
Where’s Jimmy Chamberlin on this list? If Billy Corgan has a net worth of 50 million according to that site then Jimmy has got to have at least half or third of that. And Mick Fleetwood…there’s no way that dude is worth only 8 million.
This is the only way it can be:
3. kiss me kiss me kiss me
5. head on the door
6. seventeen seconds
8. the top
9. wild mood swings (a lot better than people give it credit for)
11. three imaginary boys
12. the cure
13. 4:13 dream
The entire musical climate was completely different in the early 90′s. Legitimate bands would get signed to major labels. Bands that were heavy hitters like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Smashing Pumpkins etc would get signed. Sloppy lofi indie bands that couldn’t play their instruments didn’t get the kind of attention like they do today. The bar has been significantly lowered talent-wise. To say that the Pumpkins were just some major label concoction is just sheer ignorance and denying one of the greatest 90′s bands their due.
Guess he never got the memo that there already was a really good album by Emmylou Harris called “Wrecking Ball”.
“Brooklyn-based”. That’s all you have to say to make me quit paying attention.
The girl playing Olsen actually looked a lot more like Zooey than the other girl. Blue eyes necessary
silverchair weren’t THAT bad man
I’m sure she gives quite a fuck about the $$$ she got paid to do the performance. Yeah, she really stuck it to the man, man.
I have noticed, yes. Coldplay latest album is terrible. Still think Bon Iver sounds like a more ponderous Coldplay. His voice is very similar.
Bon Iver is not bad, but I find his music a bit boring. His stuff sounds dangerously close to Coldplay
Radiohead with a default placement in the top 10 even though King of Limbs is the worst album they’ve ever done hands down. I’ve seen the same copies of it in used cd shops sitting there for months.
Siamese Dream is just as good as Loveless in its own way and just as much of a landmark album IMO.
Is it just me, or are you Skrillex?
Is the girl even real? There seemed to be nothing going on upstairs in this interview. Fake lips, fake everything. Stepford Wives as pop stars now?
“Hurts Like Heaven” sounds like an imitation of “Keep the Car Running” by Arcade Fire
Well that’s a blatant rip off if I’ve ever heard one. Coldplay have Satriani’d themselves again.
This is probably my favorite U2 song so I was looking forward to hearing this cover. Pretty disappointing version of the song though. Lifeless and boring.
Wow that “Charlie Brown” sound couldn’t be more formulaic. Sounds like one of those insurance or car commercial songs that tries to sound like U2.
overrated album is overrated. if they weren’t 5 rich kids from new york with industry connections and their carefully chosen thrift store attire with bedhead hair nobody would have ever heard them. the strokes were and always will be just a caricature of rock n’ roll.
