I agree with LeMac. Mellon Collie was probably their most popular, but it's so freaking big as a double album that it's kinda overwhelming (and unnecessary...)

Even the "Greatest Hits" wouldn't be a bad place to check them out, honestly. It's a good best of.

Dang, I forgot about their cover of Landslide as well.

Have you tried to make single-disc cuts of Mellon Collie or the two Machina albums? I've tried the latter, and it turned out alright... the second album's kind of a wash save for a few tracks.

Two years, '97 - '99. Moved around a bit Saitama for a while (Kawagoe), Nagano for half a year (I was transferred right before the freaking Olympics), Tokyo for half a year, Saitama again for half a year (Ageo), and Ibaraki (Hitachi - yes, everyone there really does work for the company) for a few months.

I've been back twice since then, but only for 4 or 5 days each time. Sadly, I haven't visited the south or north at all. Was going to go on a vacation there this fall and actually do some real touring around, but it fell through. Hopefully next year. I plan on punching If You Shout right in the mouth when I go.

NSW, the Crazy Train stopped 'round tonight in my neighborhood.

Back on topic, I really dig Cherub Rock, does that indicate anything?

You should kick IYS in his sternum.

I was in Tokyo twice....but was up in Saitama for a Pride event. Also was out at Hakone/Fuji......I loved both trips, amazing amazing place.

Thanks for replying.

I was one of two people who laughed at that in the theater.

I wanted to find the other person and high five them...

You're so precocious. One thing Juno taught me: Don't trust Jason Bateman with fatherhood.
