Man, I bet David Guetta is just really tired in this video. The dude’s not young, and his job is basically to just blast party music all night, every night.

Rivers’ voice kind of irritates me on the recent albums. I don’t know if it’s because of the production or his age or whatever, but his singing just sounds so much better on Blue and Pinkerton.

I love this album, but I don’t understand why it’s considered the cream of the crop in GBV’s catalog. I think it was the first album of theirs that I listened to, but it didn’t sell me on the band. I don’t think it’s as fun as Alien Lanes and Propeller, or as accessible as Under the Bushes Under the Stars.

I don’t know what I’m saying, really. I’m not trying to knock Bee Thousand – it’s obviously great. I guess I’m just confused at how some people really enjoy this one, but can’t get into other GBV albums. To me, the band has at least 4 or 5 unimpeachable classics.

It’s like the opposite of a Where’s the Beef article

There are a lot of great b-sides and rarities from those early years, though. It’s at least an album’s worth of excellent stuff.

This was my jam in high school. My musical tastes have definitely evolved and expanded since then, but this album has stood the test of time. It’s still one of my absolute favorites.

Though, sometimes I think I like Pinkerton better. Weezer is maybe the only band with two albums on my top 10 of all time list.

Kim Deal is mentioned quite a bit in Jim Greer’s book about GBV (http://www.amazon.com/Guided-Voices-History-Twenty-One-Accidents/dp/0802170137). Pollard says in an interview at some point that he was pretty sure he was in love with her, but he happened to be married at the time.

I love this album (and Ignition and Ixnay on the Hombre). If I’m being completely honest, though, I didn’t really get into the Offspring until a few years ago. They’ve never been so much of a nostalgia band for me as they are a guilty pleasure sort of thing.

I’ve always had a strange affinity for “Lounge Act.” I love how towards the end he goes up the octave, screaming the chorus and just tearing shit up. Definitely my favorite track on Nevermind.

By the way, I have no issues with the omission of Teen Spirit. It’s almost certainly because of how overplayed and over-hyped the song is, but I can’t even listen to it anymore.
