I have to listen to all this repetitive nonsense before the last minute or so where the song finally rocks the F out. That last minute is very worth it though.

So...I have a good feeling about this but can't say for sure yet, especially because it took months and months for some of the songs on Meds to grow on me. I think this record will be the same that way.

Thanks. It's only 8 bucks at Best Buy, so I might just pick it up.

Used CD shop yesterday afternoon!

Spoon - Gimme Fiction
Creedence Clearwater Revival - Chronicle, Vol. 1
Death From Above 1979 - You're A Woman, I'm A Machine
Black Flag - Damaged
Sleater-Kinney - The Woods



And they have a little clothing/random stuff section and they had this cool ass glow in the dark rosary for $1.50 so I bought that shit. I have no idea whether or not I will ever wear it, though.

It's an enjoyable listen, if nothing else. I liked the lead tracks more than most people, though, so I don't know if that helps you. Brian sounds great, but the music is definitely back to basics. Very little of the electronic embellishment that I've come to love so much in their music. Without that, the sometimes awkward lyrics are much more pronounced. All of that said, it does sound good, and it will probably continue to grow on me. I rarely like Placebo's albums as a whole anyway, so for me to be enjoying this as much as I do, it's impressive.

I live two blocks from a supercheap used music store. It's bad. The selection is hit or miss, but when it hits it hits. I got BoB for 6 bucks.

Of course, it wasn't the remastered, but I don't care that much.

Sometimes I'd rather hear the original version first anyway.

That said......

My turntable was destroyed in a flood. I had to give away sooooo many vinyl records I had accumulated.


I just received my legitimate copy of this album, though I may have had a sort of copy long before I ordered it:
Manic Street Preachers - Journal for Plague Lovers
