Yeah, also I don't want to come off sounding hostile towards LM or anything, I'm not at all. Although I am with Impy on No Line these days.

I'd try to make a similar joke in retort, unfortunately I can't remember any particular song titles from Summerteeth as they're all so indistinguishable from one another.

"Hey, Beano. We've made two awful records in a row and need to at least pretend we still care about making good music. Can you help push the envelope a little bit?"

"Sure, we'll just have a few songs longer than five minutes, a couple wacky intros, and some completely uninspired guitar playing the young kids might see as ironic and therefore 'cool.' But deep down, it's just going to be the same shit with the word 'love' in every single song and a lot of whoooaaoaaaa ohhhhhhhh stuff. And in the middle, we'll have a song about standing up for love (of course!) that will sound like fucking Dave Matthews Band."


Yes, No Net is a bit different than Atomic Serve. But everyone has just convinced themselves it's so great solely because it sucks a little less.

No, it's cool. I realize I'm one of the handful of B&C's regulars who considers NLOTH one of the very best albums of year at this stage.

Agreed on Unknown Caller though. Fucking hell, what a trainwreck.

I am never gonna be able to understand people with this opinion, Bomb sounded like they were completely unsure of themselves and the production on the album just completely kills it

I guess my problem with Bomb is not the songs it's just the album, the songs are fine but the earbleeding guitars of All Because of You and Crumbs are just too much, as much as U2 talk about Pop needing to be rerecorded and fixed, Bomb sounds like it needs it a lot more. But this is the Wilco thread so I'll shut up now seeing as I still haven't got around to listening to the Wilco album at all, everything I've heard from non-fanboys seems to hint that it's either their weakest or one of them, so I think I'd rather hear some more of their back-catalogue before hearing Wilco the album

I hate Wilco (The Song) on principle of being the dumbest song title ever

At least it's not "U2'll Go Crazy if They Don't Go Crazy Tonight"

Putting your band name in a song is like...I don't know what it's like because I thought it was beyond stupid before Wilco did it

I listened to the album a lot the week that it leaked, but the sound quality of the version I had was terrible at high volume, so I haven't listened to it much since. I do like it, and there are some songs (One Wing especially) that I love, but I'm not sure I love the album as a whole yet. I'm waiting to hear the better-quality official release before I say much more about it.

And whether I love the album or not, Wilco pwns live, and a new album means they'll be on the road a lot in the coming year.

Just got back from seeing Wilco at the Greek Theater in Berkeley. Awesome show - they do indeed pwn live. Tight performances, great sound (even way up on the hill where we were), great crowd, too. I was amazed at how faithful they stayed to the sonically dense stuff from YHF - I guess I sort of assumed that wouldn't be totally reproducible live, but damned if they didn't nail 'em.

"Death to Los Campesinos!" is a fantastic song, and it's the first song on Los Campesinos! first album.
