I just don't think the fact that something is influential makes it any better. Listening to something that influenced someone else doesn't make the album sound any better, it's still the same quality whether or not it influences a single person.






Anyway






Listened to that one twice

Jefferson Airplane - Surrealistic Pillow

I like this album a lot more now, upon a second listen

I'll admit, this is a rough listen for anyone who hasn't heard other lo-fi albums from the 90s. But, once you get past the recording "quality," it's a nice album. Not sure if I'd call it the lo-fi classic that it seems to be rated, but it's definitely an important album in the movement. I think it just might be that I don't like the way that the lead singer, Bob Pollard, releases anything and everything he writes and records. Some discretion is appreciated.

Favorites from the album: "Echos Myron," "Awful Bliss," and "Her Psychology Today."

Tractor Rape Chain

The Goldheart Mountaintop Queen Directory

I think Bee Thousand is a very good album indeed.

What did you think of the insane duck noises on Bike? I'll be honest. I was scared shitless when I heard it for the first time. It was at night time too and I was alone at home!

Ah, forgot about that one!

I think it's a good album, but I don't think I'll go any further with Guided By Voices, just because I have the feeling the albums get tedious after awhile because he releases so much all the time.

Pavement - Brighten the Corners


I can't get over the Malkmus guitar wankery in "Fin"

I can see where this one wouldn't be like as much as the earlier Pavement albums, but I like it quite a bit. It has some pretty good songs on it; "Stereo", "Type Slowly", "We Are Underused", and "Fin" come to mind. But, still not as good as Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain or Wowee Zowee to me.

Oh my God.

And that Fing gnome song too

The main thing I really enjoyed was how cracked out I felt after listening to Interstellar Overdrive

And yes, it was a first.

I've owned it for about six months or so now, I really regret having waited so long
