Yesterday was NLOTH's 10th birthday, guys. February 27, 2009.

Also, if you're interested, eleven days ago was the 10th anniversary of the famous NLOTH leak(wherein some universal employee in Australia accidentally made the album available to purchase for download). Here is the thread that was going when it happened: NLOTH: Do You Feel Leaked???? Leak Thread Part XI

Anyway, still one of their most frustrating albums. Fez, MOS, title track, White As Snow, and Cedars are all classic as far as I'm concerned. Then there's the middle 3. Somewhere in between are Magnificent, UC, and Breathe, all of which are decent but have flaws. Magnificent has a great riff and good chorus but the verses drag. UC is musically fine but the chorus hasn't aged all that well(the solo at the end nearly makes up for everything though). Breathe has an exciting rhythm but never quite achieves full liftoff.

Happy birthday to a flawed album with moments(pun intended) of brilliance.

I still can't believe they thought it was a good idea to open the 360 concerts with Breathe. I love the song but I can't think of a tour of theirs with a worse opener.

It's admittedly a hard album to choose a show-starter from, but it just hit me today that the disco remix of Cock Crazy they were playing wouldn't have been the worst choice, and would have gone well with introducing the full audio-visual capabilities of The Claw. I mean the song title just fits the spot perfectly.

Don’t complain. We got ‘Return of Stingray Guitar’ into Beautiful Day. That shit was hideous. We would have killed for Breathe.

I thought my Stand Up Comedy initial take was the worst. I

Upon further review... uh...

I know I soured on the album pretty quickly... Trying to scroll through to find out how quickly but the hot takes are just burning my eyes out.

i'm about 90% confident that i don't have any posts in that thread and i'm very thankful that there (probably) isn't any gushing hot takes about NLOTH that could be used to ruin me should i become a public figure in the future.
