Holy shit!

Seriously, I was coming here just to post this.


Anyway, so many things I listen from new bands that reminds me things from this record. Spot on!

The White Album, though I am not its biggest fan, still sounds great as ever.


I'm just in shock that you actually agreed with me.

Objectivity FTW.

May I also suggest:




At the time it sounded like it was a bit retro, even if brilliant. Now it just sounds fucking CLASSIC. And this is coming from someone who prefers all the Pavement albums after it.

I'll second that recommendation. It's the Pavement album that I put on when I can't decide on anything else to put on, just because it's always so damn great!

Yes. With the exception of Hit The Plane Down, at least. I can't think of a worse Pavement song from the five studio albums.

Fucking Stairs.

I love all 5 of the studio albums but CR, CR will always be my favorite.

He messed everything up, didn't he? Is that the only song he wrote that ended up on an album?

I agree though, Hit the Plane Down is pretty awful, but at least the rest of the album more than makes up for it.

He wrote both "Kennel District" and "Date w/IKEA." For those two songs alone, the guy deserves major respect. Seriously. And lets not forget the brilliant, unreleased "For Sale! The Preston School of Industry."

Didn't know that, it's good to see that he didn't just write one crap song. Both of those are fantastic songs.

I freaking love Date with IKEA.

So that's what Preston School of Industry is named after! Now I know, and knowing is half the battle.

Kennel District is a fantastic song, prob his best. And he wrote Painted Soldiers for the Brain Candy soundtrack, which is another great one (and has a HILARIOUS video). He also wrote Two States, and Western Homes, if I'm not mistaken. Date with IKEA is great but Passat Dream is not one of the better songs on Brighten the Corners. At least it doesn't suck though.

SM writing all the songs on Terror Twilight was fine by me.

I just listened to Kennel District, for some stupid reason I always forget what that song is called, and I've always liked it a great deal as well. Sad I had to go listen to it to remember which it was...

I like Two States quite a bit as well. Passat Dream is probably one of my least favorite songs on that album.....and I drive a Passat.
