Agreed...well, it's my favorite of theirs, at least....

This board really shaped my music listening: David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Arcade Fire, Porcupine Tree, Ours ... etc.

So I guess "mixed bag" isn't the best wording, as it's great except for those two.

E Street Shuffle is classic all the way through, though.
poor arkansas. i've not listened to that album in a while, maybe i need a refresher course to see what tracks are weak

I learned about a number of my favorite artists (including U2, Beatles, Zeppelin, Bowie) through my parents, but my tastes would be thin without forums like this.

I don't think they drag at all. I think the songs work very well as they are.

DSOTM is right behind WYWH for me, with Animals third.

My mother loves Christmas music. She owns more Christmas albums than she does any other album.

Purely an opinion thing, of course.

Songs like Time leave me wanting more (Gilmour's verses absolutely fucking rock), whereas Animals tracks are definitely enough, if not a bit too much for me.

Yeah, I don't like Welcome To The Machine much either. WYWH is a step up over the Wall, but lower than Animals, Meddle, and DSOTM.

You like the "no music, no politics, just sports" method?

THE EXCEPTION is an EXCEPTIONal sports coach, I might add: baseball and basketball. Very well respected and successful in the youth sports leagues of the area. Thought you'd like that.
