Don't you love it? They can't cobble together a national healthcare system, or properly fund education, or anything actually constructive, but they can blow $5,000 a second in Iraq.

Priorities, people, PRIORITIES.

Don't worry, it'll change soon, hopefully.

They're still gonna be the laughing stock of the world, but at least less so.

Damn straight. No way in hell is he cheesy (well, ok, some 80's and early 90's stuff is, but then again, everyone who had a career through that time period churned out a few cheesy tunes).

If I didn't have to go to work, I'd go more in depth, but suffice to say, I think you need to listen to the Born To Run album again (if you've ever listened to it all the way through), and listen closer to the lyrics and the music.

Oh, and morning.

I can't say I'm confident. I'm worried Hillary's going to snatch the Democratic nomination from Obama, and in that case, they're still as fucked as they are now.

Like The Wall, the music is sacrificed at the altar of the concept, and unlike The Wall, which actually has three or so good songs, Lamb has absolutely none. And come on, a double album? There has never been a good double album in history.
I like Lamb, but I will say there are definitely weaker parts on it.

I'll argue about Peter Gabriel, though. You should check out some of his early solo material, although I'm sure Liam keeps banging you over the head with that already. Some strong stuff there.

Prompt me to do this tomorrow and I will. i.e. this evening your time. I think I know where the CD is.

I wouldn't say it's shit, but it's definitely not as good as DSOTM, WYWH, or Animals. Or even Meddle.

Can you link to the post itself? I'm not seeing your one, just being assaulted by pictures of people I don't care to know by posters I generally consider flakes.

Liam will probably murder me if I don't listen to Peter Gabriel IV in the next few days.

The Genesis albums I've heard are Lamb, obviously, and Selling England By The Pound, which I think is mediocre and unexceptional.

Oh by the way, nice post in the U2.com thread. All too true. Also, the site needs more flash games.

Hi Liam.

I'd say goodbye to you, phanan, but I bet you'll pop on here while at work.
