I like the Pixies a lot. “Last Splash” is better than any Pixies record. Pixies had better guitar playing, that’s it. 90′s psychedelic rock at its finest. A classic record.
This is a pretty intriguing track, but I’d say at this point I could do without that guitar in the left channel for the most part.
This is like some weird test of the level of Flaming Lips fandom. Telepathic Surgery, their worst record, at 4 is just weird, and “Priest” is a classic in Flaming Lips universe. “Hit” is my favorite, so I’m glad it got some love. Clouds Taste Metallic would be around 5 I’d say, behind all the other 90s ‘noise-rock’ records.
“Mystics” was the first disappointing Lips record since the early days and should be way lower.
“Zaireeka” I think is their finest achievement, but it has to be listened to properly, and maybe shouldn’t be included.
I’m still figuring out what to make of “Embryonic” which is a good thing. At this point I’d certainly put it ahead of their three early records and “Mystics”.
I agree with including Louder/Hatful as a single entity on this list, but, y’know, The Queen is Dead is fantastic, and a proper album. I suppose if it was in it’s rightful place there would be fewer comments. ;)
I thought Mutations was way better, he’s considerably less interesting when trying to be ‘serious’. I listened to this a lot though, at the time, wasn’t terrible. I had no idea so many people liked it so much.
I have a lot of confidence in these girls. Can’t wait to hear it!
Sara is different but equally awesome.
How about calling it “What is the light?”
I like Grandaddy, but their sound hasn’t really gone anywhere. This song could be on the sophtware slump.
Here’s all you have to do to understand some of the ridiculous things Prince does.
He decided to strip down to his underwear and put out an album of pornographic demos…and it worked. He decided to put out a double album and it worked. Then, he decided he was going to make and star in a semi-autobiographical movie and it worked. This is how you become a person that can’t be told how to do anything.
Not groundbreaking, not bad. Sounds a lot more like Cheap Trick than anything else. Just substitute the Hanson kid for someone who can’t sing, substitute the rest of the band for people who can’t play, make a low-fi recording, release it as vinyl only, and this song would be instantly legendary, it’s just that easy.
Interesting production and arrangement, it’s like he’s trying to make the Sgt. Peppers of hair metal, which I would suggest is a terrible idea to begin with.
