I think this album is very, very cool. But still...I can't get into the earlier stuff. They sound like stoned buskers with an 8 track on Sung Tongs, Feels is often aimless, and Strawberry Jam is pretty uneven. Some great tracks, but a lot of tuneless junk too.

I'd say mostly tuneless junk, myself, but I have to admit that something like half of Strawberry Jam was transcendent, for me. Songs like "Peacebone" and "Fireworks" are just stunning. The problem was that the songs I didn't like were songs I detested. Same old, same old, with these guys.

All these years later, I've still never once managed to listen to Sung Tongs or Feels, from start to finish, in one sitting. Ugh. I'll take "Who Could Win a Rabbit" and go, thanks.

I'd add Winter Wonder Land to that list, and then agree that there's not much else on that one I really enjoyed. I do LOVE those 3 though. Maybe I'll have to give it another spin sometimes soon, but from all of your results of giving their back catalogue another shot, I don't have high hopes.

I just want four walls and adobe slats for my girls

"For Reverend Green" kicks my ass every time I hear it.

Yeah, that's one's not too bad, either.

As long as you make sure to do the "woo", it's all good.

Do you appreciate the subtleties of taste, scumbo?


Yeah, I'm still obsessed with this album. It's a shoo-in for my album of the year. But I sincerely hope Boner can topple it.

I only appreciate the subtleties of taste buds.

Oh, of course. It's one of the best parts to sing along with.

Well, I checked out their latest album and was impressed. It is daring and eclectic without sounding pretentious or over-ambitious, which of course is a feat not easily achieved. I suppose the question then is where to go next in terms of their discography.

Hopefully that means there is an entire new stock. I went to Waterloo and Backspin int he past two days with no luck.
