I'm not digging myself into anything, there is no negative impact here for me having a different opinion, so I don't really need to defend myself.

Too bad I didn't say that. I was talking specifically about Dinosaur Jr. There is even a quote by Mascis that they liked how the cover turned out that they decided to make it a single instead of giving it away for a compilation album.

Oh, and about that article - apologies if I don't buy the obligatory mythology that not a single one of those artists "didn't try" on those songs before releasing it. Of course many songs start as jokes or accidents that the songwriters themselves don't take very seriously in the beginning. But it still takes effort to make it what they were, make it 6 hours of production or a lot longer (Teen Spirit belonging to the latter, since there were discussions with Butch Vig as to how to record it).

And I do actually tend to prefer albums or songs that aren't being tinkered with a lot. But there's a difference between over-analyzing something, making something as natural as possible in a short period of time and lastly, not trying at all. Although I'm not necessarily negating the existence of cases where somebody put out something as a joke and that turned out to define their career. Some do come to mind.

Pretty much what I wanted to say has already been said by djerdap, so I'm happy to let this lie.
"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Aw, I missed this vote. Would have voted for Icing Sugar, just because I'd have like to see it advance. I love The Kiss though too.
