My favorite album of the 2Ks, I'd say. I don't feel like I need a new mix, but I'm certainly curious to hear it all the same. I'm bummed about the lack of the quick-follow up, The Waterfall was so fucking good and underrated when it came time for year end lists. Easily their best since Z.

They don't even really sounds like the Stones any more, though...

May 27, 2016 on The Strokes – “The Threat Of Joy”
See, I've always felt like it generally runs out of steam in that last stretch (though I like "Boot Camp"). But that said, the rest is high quality stuff for sure. Badmotorfinger is my favorite SG album, but I like this at least as much as Superunknown. "Ty Cobb" > "Blow up the Outside World" > "Burden..." is a monster trio. "Burden in My Hand" is one of my two or three favorite SG songs, up there with "Rusty Cage" and some of the other BMF highlights. It's also a welcome addition to the "Down by the River"/"Hey Joe"/etc line of songs about killing your partner.

Corgan, Pollard, Vedder, Beck if it's personal musical preference. Or swap Vedder for a space that's half-Big Boi & half-Andre 3000.

Creatively/output-wise? Hell yeah, Corgan over Cobain. Cobain only pulls ahead on impact. But as for this...Corgan should stick to talking about music (which causes him to give interviews that are far more entertaining than any music he's released since Zwan) and avoid politics, because he sounds like a greedy right-wing clown here.

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.

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.
