Hell yes, they did that at Bonnaroo '05, First time I heard that song, actually, though I've since come to really like the original.

I thought it was mostly a bit middling compared to the rest, but definitely not the worst. 1. Bears for Lunch 2. Class Clown.... 3. Motivational Jumpsuit 4/5. Let's Go Eat the Factory/English Little League 6. Cool Planet I really like those first 3 in particular, and a number of tracks off the rest. have to hear this new one.

I really don't see where this article makes a convincing case for why the album "hasn't held up". It also just doesn't take that much time to talk about the music here.

I can't believe none of the major festivals has ever nabbed him.

This is hands-down their best album, IMO. Great sound, great songwriting - the one time I feel like they consistently performed on the level of their more fashionable peers.

So Claypool just needs to perform with a Lennon to get acknowledged on indie blogs. Gotcha. (nah, SG is better about it than P4k, you guys at least mentioned a thing or two relating to the Willy Wonka album)

Also, Primal Scream has a new one? I didn't even know they were working on one...but it's also been a few albums since they dropped a full-on keeper.

Glad to see this getting the deserved love.

Funhouse is unquestionably #1 for me, as it's one of the most brilliantly pulverizing albums in rock music. Other two are hard, but Raw Power doesn't have some of the quite bad filler on the debut, and its highs match The Stooges' highs.

Doesn't really add anything - the phrasing & singing are basically the same as the original. I'm a JC fan, but this feels pretty pointless.

I though The Bears for Lunch was killer, and Class Clown.... & Motivational Jumpsuit were also both quite good.

I wouldn't even say it's an "indie pop" thing so much as it coming from too "rootsy" of an artist. Places like SG & Pitchfork stone wall a lot of great stuff that they find too rustic or too close to the jam band community.

They've been bad about snubs lately, but all the surprise releases & weird release dates make it kind of understandable. The Ray Lamontagne album that dropped last week was pretty good (and I'm not traditionally a big fan) and that got no mention, either. And there were a couple earlier in the year, still.

His verse on A$AP Rocky's "M's" was surprisingly hot last year.

Definitely digging it, but mixed feelings on the write-up. Lots of good/valid points, but it also felt a bit too gush-y/fanboy-y in parts. Yeah he's great and as deserving of adulation as anyone on the scene....but still.

I only recently realized that he actually has a bunch more stuff than I realized - 40+ songs at least...but that still doesn't explain why he doesn't have a single attempt at a proper album out there.

I have to wait til after work to listen, but I really hope it's good. I love all his stuff up through and including Post-War, but he's been trending downhill since then - Hold Time loses steam in the 2nd half, and A Wasteland Companion was a total dud for me. But hey, his boys MMJ got their groove back last year, so why not him?
