Great, great band. I love everything they've done. I need to get that EP.

I still listen to "Berlin" once a day, too.

I love Berlin! I think 666 Conducer sounds a bit like When the Levee Breaks.

I got into them right after the first album came out and that one is still my favorite.

I'm planning on getting their first album soon, but I think I'll still like Baby 81 the best and Howl second.... Something about them--I don't know what, though. Just the songwriting in them.

Have you heard "Grind My Bones" from one of the other EPs they've put out? It was one from the Howl Sessions.

Great song.

Gotta love those slow blues.... Yeah, the Howl sessions. I really like Wishing Well from those sessions.

I did get Baby 81 for Christmas and dang, I LOVE this album. It's even better than I had expected.

This is why it's their best so far!

Baby 81 made my year end list... and I'd not been a huge fan of BRMC before this year! So many great songs

I still listen to this song more than anything else they've done. Because of that 89.3 The Current vid Got Edge posted elsewhere this past week, I found this video. He plays the guitar part a little differently than normal in the intro, and there's some new stuff added at the end:

YouTube - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Mercy

As a side note, I read 'Howl' by Allen Ginsberg on the trip to Radiohead, purely because of the BRMC album. Now I have to read 'On the Road' because of the Hold Steady song....

A BRMC thread? Nice.

It's funny, I actually got into these guys about 4 or 5 years ago when I heard The Edge mention them as one of his favorite new bands in an interview.

I went out and bought the self-titled debut and Take Them On, On Your Own and I still love both albums. I didn't buy Howl or Baby 81 but I've heard tracks from both and it's quality stuff, for sure. That was an interesting shift in sound they made going from Take Them On to Howl, wasn't it?

Whatever Happened to My Rock and Roll, Stop, and Six Barrel Shotgun are a few of my favorites off the top of my head. And I'm Aching, too.

Howl and Baby 81 annihilate Take Them On, you should get the other two.

You really think so? It would be hard for those albums to top Take Them On for me. I love that album very much. And I've actually heard most of Howl and I know that I don't like it as much.

But, yeah, I should get Baby 81. And I will.

Also you mentioned you read the Ginsberg poem. Good shit, that's one of my favorite poems ever.
