Hey, it goes both ways, so it shouldn't be that big of a deal, you know?

I've finally hit a track i don't like so much: Hole In the River

The album made a pretty good run before hitting a bump

That makes sense.

And honestly, I'm too close to U2 to ever be able to be able to hear them compared to any other band, they just sound like U2 to me, so I'll take your word for it

The only aspect of the song I like, electric or acoustic, is Edge's verse, really. The acoustic version at least doesn't sound as much like a nasty motivational slow song for radio, though.

'Ver, what are your thoughts on David Bowie? A few of his late '60s/early '70s albums lean toward the prog persuasion.

1. I dunno. If an album is bloated, I just take it in smaller pieces until I can appreciate the whole thing. Sometimes that doesn't work out, but for London Calling it did.

Most of your second point was valid and understandable, but this...

How am I being a dick? I have been a dick in the past, I will be a dick in the future, but not in this musical conversation.

You're out of your mind. Do you want me to break out the LMP DI4 running diary? Your post calling Radiohead fans idiots about an hour ago? Come on, man. If you're going to point out my flaws, you could at least have the decency to admit that you share them.

Final thoughts on Abbey Road:

Fucking fantastic. The only bad song is Her Majesty, and it's not even really part of the album so who cares? The rest is awesome, it's very developed and complete. It has a great, well-executed concept, especially with the medley. Everything it was meant to do, it did.

I can see now why it's considered a masterpiece. It, to music, is like The Godfather to film. Or Seinfeld to television. Just a huge accomplishment that deserves all the praise it receives.

The Beatles upped it a couple of notches today.

Stick to Agalloch. I'm sure they'll never release a nasty motivational song for radio.

I'm a prog fan. We're allowed to be condescending pricks.
