Black Rebel Motorcycle Club anyone?

They just released an EP of leftover material from their Baby 81 album (which I can't stop listening to!) and I'm patiently waiting for it in the mail. Anyone else love this outstanding band?

I have Take Them On, On Your Own and Howl, and I asked for Baby 81 for Christmas.

I've given up on critics giving BRMC respect again after seeing them dismiss Howl, but I am surprised I haven't seem Baby 81 on more "music fan" year end lists. Weapon of Choice is easily one of the best singles of the year. Extremely solid and enjoyable album. I know a number of people who say this is their favorite album of theirs, and I couple others who didn't like them until they heard Baby 81. Good stuff.

I admittedly liked all the Howl Sessions EP's MUCH more than the Baby 81 Sessions EP. 'Mercy' is far and away one of their best tracks ever, how could they have not put it on an album?

I laughed out loud when I read this.... Especially on Interference. "Why wasn't Mercy on the album??" hahaha.

Howl is an amazing album, too. It reminds me of classic rock. It reminds me of Bob Dylan and George Harrison.

Same here!
That said, the only BRMC album I have is Howl and I think that's a great record. So now I'm interested in finding out more about those Howl session EPs.

And Mercy...

Sweet irony! I didn't even think of it, nice catch.

Look into their other albums as well, Marty. The self-titled "BRMC" album is my favorite, but IWB's fav is Take Them On On Your Own, and I have 3 or 4 friends who're split on saying either Howl or Baby 81 are their favorites. There's something for everyone in their catalog I guess.

I never really liked their Whatever Happened To My Rock & Roll. So I kinda dismissed their first album (and also their second which I understood to be more of the same, maybe a tad noisier). But when I heard one of their Howl songs on the radio I got interested.

I've never heard the full BRMC album. Just Love Burns. But I have the other 3, and the Howl sessions, and my copy of the Baby 81 sessions is on its way. Hopefully I'll get it before Christmas!
