Joe 90 - A Raccoon's Lunch (I got thru Amazon 5 years ago and now there are none available to buy). But a great album and completely underapprecaited. A band that sounds like a modern Crowded House.

The Bigger Lovers - How I Learned To Stop Worrying
A power-pop band greatly influenced by Big Star. LemonMelon should try them out because I know how big of fan LM is of Big Star.

The Auteurs - After Murder Park
A band that the lead singer Luke Haines predicted he would gather a fanbase after many years past. A band that stirs up the political and corrupt issues of our society.

Aztec Camera - Frestonia
A band that people may know from the 80's and early 90's. But Frestonia is pure classic in my book. Songs from the heart straight to you.

Holy crap, it's a Strangelove reference too?

It takes all kinds, I guess. There are also Beatles fans with shitty taste who don't like Revolver.

There's no denying AB is a fantastic album, and it certainly does have strong a production and mix. Nothing outrageous about preferring 3 or 4 others to it though.

Like BallBoy or Cocktober, as mentioned?


If you say so.

I think Boy is one of the most accomplished, well-realized and, most importantly, zealous debuts I've ever heard. It's a record they could never make anymore, and I don't just mean that they lack the ability to expend that sort of energy. They're just completely incapable of making four people in a room sound exciting the way Lillywhite helped them to on that album. Throw in some thoughtful, inspired musings from Bono and you've got a constantly replayable album.

Two extremely different albums in all terms from AB. Both pretty great. So no, nothing at all outrageous about someone preferring them. Unless you want to be an ass about it, in which case, yeah, those people are fucktards.

Not to take away from the actual songs and performances themselves, which are awesome, or the production, which is really creative (I don't give a fuck how muddy it sounds), but the context here is half of it. It comes from a place of real pain that is unique for the band, and the curveball nature compared to what they did before this can't be undervalued.

And it also led to this amazing SC moment:

Yeah. I don't dig too hard on boy. I try. But its just not my thing. I don't disrespect anyone who does like it to each their own.

I like BallBoy a lot. But to imply that the first recorded album by a group of teens is better than a deep, dark, towering work like Achtung Birdie...I just don't know what to say to that. It's ludicrous. And I don't have respect for that opinion. Sorry.

I like that we're talking about Achtung Baby in the Albums No One Else Owns thread. I think even Beav owned that one.

I agree completely.

I feel that Boy (and perhaps October) have a more true, defined meaning than any of their other albums.
